The Battle Plan for Prayer

Stephen and Alex Kendrick


About the Book:

Inspired by the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie, War Room, this exciting new resource from the #1 best-selling author team behind The Love Dare and The Resolution for Men is designed to help anyone learn how to become a powerful person of prayer. The Battle Plan for Prayer begins with prayer’s core purpose, its biblical design, and its impact throughout history. Readers will be guided scripturally through the fundamentals of how effective prayer works, inspired towards a closer, more intimate relationship with God, and shown how to develop specific prayer strategies for each area of life. Prayer can accomplish what a willing God can accomplish. It should be your first plan of attack in all of life’s battles, not your last resort. If you want to experience the joy of mightily answered prayer, then it’s time to engage with God at another level.

My Review:

I will admit I struggle with prayer, I don’t like praying out loud, in front of people even my family. I don’t know if its because I’m afraid I will not say the right thing. I have always longed to be able to pray like Beth Moore, Sheila Walsh, Lisa Harper, Lysa TerKeurst, you name it, that is who I wanted my prayer life to be like. In the Battle Plan for Prayer, the Kendrick brothers will show us how to have a powerful prayer life. Guided by scripture we will learn to have a closer relationship with Christ with the words we pray. Prayer should always be the first thing we turn to for attack in all of life’s battles.

The Battle Plan for Prayer was inspired by War Room, the Kendrick Brothers new movie. If you are longing for a better prayer life I suggest watching War Room, reading The Battle Plan for Prayer and ladies read Fervent by Priscilla Shrier also. With all these tools that Christ has given us along with His word, we will be ready for Battle.

I highly recommend this book for anyone, young or old, man or woman. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review.

About the Book:


You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted.

So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.

New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, uprooting bitterness, and more. Each chapter exposes the enemy’s cruel, crafty intentions in all kinds of these areas, then equips and encourages you to write out your own personalized prayer strategies on tear-out sheets you can post and pray over yourself and your loved ones on a regular basis.

Fervent is a hands-on, knees-down, don’t-give-up action guide to practical, purposeful praying.

My Review:


FerVent: A Woman’s Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer is Priscilla Shirer’s new book inspired by the Feature Film War Room. How many of you long to have that prayer warrior attitude? Long to be able to pray like woman you in your church, in your life, woman you admire? I know I am not half the prayer warrior like my grandmother was or even like Priscilla or Beth Moore. But I do know that God does here my prayers. I have longed to get better at how I pray and to get over the fear of praying out loud. I’m always afraid that I will say something dumb or embarrassing. I was so happy to be able to review FerVent for B&H Publishing.


FerVent begins with a section titled This Means War, here Priscilla talks about what we are getting into with this book. Next is Opening in Prayer, then each of the strategies is discussed. Your Passion, Your Focus, Your Identity, Your Family, Your Past, Your Fears, Your Purity, Your Pressures, Your Hurts, and Your Relationships. I’m here to tell you now, don’t even break out the steel toe boots, it will not help, your toes will be stomped on, your heart will be broken, and your eyes will be swollen from the crying. The book ends with Amen, Note Pages and Prayer Strategy Pages that you can tear out and take with you.


I definitely will be reading this one again and I highly recommend adding FerVent to your To Be Read List! You will not be disappointed in the outcome. Your prayer life will thank you for it.
