Fervent: a book review

I honestly had given up on my prayer life. I was tired of praying and not being able to be effective. Something was blocking me from truly opening up before God. Then two things happened, I read the book Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and I saw the movie War Room.

By the second page, I knew what had happened to me. I had forgotten who I was fighting against. Not what, but who! (Whom? yikes, it's been so long since English 101.) 

You see, my friend, you have got to identify your enemy. You have just one. Your co-worker is not your enemy. Your husband is not your enemy. Neither are your in-laws or that person driving waaaaay too slow in front of you.

The enemy is Satan. He is alive and he is the Prince of Darkness. He prowls the Earth seeking to destroy you and me. God's people are his target. 

Let me assure you of two things: he's already defeated and you've already won. But you've got to fight, girl! 

Fight for your marriage.
Fight for your kids.
Fight for your career.
Fight for your church.
Fight for your friends.
Fight for your health and the health of those you love.
Fight for the orphans and widows.
Fight for your country.

Equip yourself and fight! 

Priscilla writes with passion and a voice that says, "I'm fighting right along side you!" If you want to reignite your prayer life or learn how to fight on your knees then I highly recommend this book. Write in it. Underline. Make a plan. She will guide you through the steps and help strengthen your prayers with Biblical principles.
