This book was a practical read with some clear descriptions on how satan uses past experiences and sins to trip us up. Ms. Scherer's is prescriptive, detailed and doable...I've been strategic and fervent in my morning prayer time and now it is expanding into my day. Satan is getting nasty, but in prayer and in Christ Jesus I/we will overcome. Thank you for writing this powerful prayer plan to defeat satan and his minions.
If you have seen the movie War Room and are longing to implement what you saw on the screen through Priscilla Shirer's character then you need this book. I loved the movie but this book just takes it over the top. If you've ever experienced a Bible study by Priscilla you already know what I mean. If not let me give you a little glimpse of what is to come.
The opening of the book sets the stage so you will have no doubt about what is expected. Here's the opening paragraph to prove what I'm saying:
"Just so you know what you're getting into . . .
By the time you've finished reading (and working) through this book, the front cover shouldn't be able to close neatly back over on itself. It should be noticeably disfigured. Ski-ramping up from the spine at such a scooped angle that even if you laid an old-school telephone book on top, you still couldn't smooth out what's become so harshly, permanently misshapen. From heartfelt use. War torn. An impossible option for regifting at Christmastime." (pg. 1)
Now that's the type of study I'm interested in. One that compels me to dive in and dig deep. One that I beg the Lord to ingrain upon my being. This study is all of that and more.
You'll be walked through the process of beginning a plan to commit your life to prayer, for yourself and those around you. Once you've reached the end I think you'll feel empowered to take on the difficult situations in your life on your knees.
This is one of those books that if I were independently wealthy I'd buy by the caseload and hand it out to my loved ones. (And probably total strangers as well!) If you are looking for a way to take your prayer life to the next meaningful level get yourself a copy of this book.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
WOW!! I am so impressed with this book, I am not sure I can cram how I feel about it in a short review. This book has certainly taken me to new heights in my prayer life and made me think about the areas it has been lacking, as well as, develop new strategies for prayer. Most importantly though, Priscilla has re-enforced a truth I so easily forget - We have an enemy!! That enemy is not our family members, husband, friends, church, leaders, co-workers - That enemy is Satan - the devil himself - who will do everything in his power to destroy what is precious to us and the Lord - our testimony, our marriages, our children, our church, and the cause of Christ. While we fight our battle with earthly weapons and continue to fail, stumble and fall over and over, God is calling us to warfare with a different set of weapons. Those with heavenly power, a power only the Almighty God can give, but one guaranteed to win the war every time!!
Have you been feeling defeated, discouraged, down? Does life seem hopeless, fearful, and depressing? Do your past sins continue to bring guilt and shame even though you know you have been forgiven? Is your marriage a battle zone in itself? Are your children or grandchildren wayward, living the life of the prodigal? God is calling you to War!! Not with earthly weapons of words, backbiting, bitterness, anger, or strife, but with heavenly weapons that tear down strongholds, take thoughts captive and are able to defeat all the fiery darts of the evil one. He is calling you to leave a legacy of answered prayers for your children and generations to come to witness. He is calling you to PRAYER!
This book will encourage your spirit, teach you new strategies for battling the enemy, and help you overcome even your weakest points. What will you be praying about? Your identity, your fears, your purity, your marriage, your children, and other areas of life you may struggle with. Priscilla surveyed a panel of women and asked what areas of life they felt defeated in. She took the top ten and used them as a jumping off point. But you don't have to stop there. It's just a starting point. Once you have learned to successfully strategize your prayer life - you will be off and running. Prayer will be a constant part of your day, and you will see GOD do miracles! We still serve that kind of GOD! Get started today!!

I have been so enveloped by this book. I can't believe the difference it has made in my life. I have been a Christian for a very long time, but this book brought so many things to light that I had never thought about before. I could see the need for change in my prayer life and this book made me want to change. I find myself wanting to prayer and give my cares and concerns to God. This book has changed me for the better.Priscilla makes so many great points to help you in your prayer journey, but she also gives you the tools to do it. Putting Scripture references at the end of each chapter to give you verses to back up your prayer strategy was an awesome bonus. I can't put this book down and I feel like it is making a difference in not only my prayer life, but how I pray for others in my life. I am so excited that I found this book and I can't wait to share it with every Christian woman I know. This book is what is needed to start a fire in Christian women around the country or even the world!
Buy this book! Pass it along to others. Give copies at Christmas or for birthdays. Share, share, share! I hope every Christian woman will have the opportunity to read this book. Let's start a prayer revival!
