The teen years can be tough; don't try to make it through without one of your most powerful weaponsprayer. A companion book to the movie War Room, this new kind of journal will get you ready for a new kind of prayer life, one that's strong, growing, and reflects just how powerful prayer is. Each short chapter tackles one of the biggest questions teens have about prayer, questions such as:
- Why pray, anyway?
- What should I pray for? Are selfish prayers okay?
- Who should I pray for? Am I really supposed to pray for my enemies too?
- Will God listen? And will He answer?

From the producers and directors of the movie, War Room, that is vastly becoming one of the most life changing movies to hit the big screen in years, comes a book designed for teens to enable them to see things in their own terms when it comes to the principles of prayer. This is a book designed to be used daily, written in and prayer over because it takes teens through the process of understanding prayer, what it is designed to do for a believer, how to document prayers, making sure your prayers line up in the will of God, and how to even pray for your enemies, often one of the things we all struggle with the most.
It provides teens with some specifics we might not even consider, such as praying for your career while you are still in school. Each chapter is designed to develop a specific prayer along with some thought provoking questions like on the topic of prayer for your career, how might you generally pray for your career? Then it details and places the focus on what things interest you? What are you passionate about? What careers always looked appealing? What is your specific prayer for your future career? Praying strategically for your career involves, "What do you think is your involvement in this prayer? Whose involvement in this prayer can make a difference? Whose involvement might surprise you? What sorts of resources are needed? What is God's purpose for your career? What is God's strategic will for your career? Then you pray strenuously for a career which includes a place for dating when you started praying for your career? As well as places for date and comments to include what setbacks did you encounter? What progress did you see, when did you see this prayer answered, and finally what factors did you specifically, strategically and strenuously pray for that you saw occur?
The entire book is dedicated to 49 distinct issues facing our teens and how they can watch and document God's divine intervention in prayer. When you see things answered in ways you prayed for, ways that exceeded your prayers or often something you didn't see coming that have now impacted your prayer, it helps teens see that God is always working on issues we pray about and sometimes they are answered right away and often times, they take time to see them fulfilled. The importance of this prayer journal is that it shows teens in a completely different way that prayer does work and God does communicate with us in unique ways all through documenting prayers much like a commander or officer would do in planning for battle.
I received This Means War by Stephen and Alex Kendrick compliments of Icon Media Group and B and H Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review aside from a free copy of this book and the opinions contained here are my personal and honest ones. I absolutely LOVED this book and it was given to my own 16-year-old daughter to begin using and she found it extremely useful She loved the places for dating the items she prayed about and loved the questions that caused her to really consider if the things she was praying for were what she wanted or what God may have wanted for her life. She loved how it helped keep her on track instead of just generally praying about a wide variety of issues and kept her more focused on the issue at hand. For us, we rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Instructive prayer journal for young teensAugust 29, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Being a young Christian teen in this culture can be difficult. Prayer is essential but how to go about it may be frustrating.
The producers of the new movie War Room have created a prayer journal just for young teens. I really like it. It has great graphics and provides tons of room to write. And to get young teens into the habit of journaling their prayers, there are short devotions and thought provoking questions.
The journal begins with the basics of the Christian life. It includes the importance of the privilege of communicating with God. The enemy is explained as is the war we are in. There is a section on the nature of prayer, that it takes time and discipline to get going, the kinds of things we pray about, the character of God, and what it means to be saved. Another section covers the weapons of a prayer warrior, such as Scripture and praise. There is even advanced training on prayer including issues like knowing God's will, waiting for God's answer, and how to pray strategically with focus. At the end of each chapter is Go To War, with suggestions for specific prayer.
I liked this journal, a combination of teaching on prayer and ample space for young teens to write their thoughts. Good questions are included to stimulate thinking about prayer. I like the lessons on being sincere and succinct, perhaps identifying some of the bad prayer habits they may have seen in adults. I like going through the Lord's Prayer as a model.
The format and graphics of the book revolve around going to war and being a soldier in it. I tend to think this book would appeal more to guys than gals. It is a good tool to help young teens, about middle school age, develop a strategic prayer life and get in the habit of journaling their prayers.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5A great kick start for your teenAugust 27, 2015MelissaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I love this book for teens. It takes a simple, straight forward approach to introducing them to prayer and asking them questions to get them thinking about why its hard to pray.
At one point the teen is asked to be quiet for fifteen minutes and pray and reflect on what thats like. Not easy for a teen but I love that they are being pointed in that direction.
I can see this book having a HUGE impact on lives if the child will actually go through it slowly and take the time to write down answers to the questions in this book.
I will say I havent gotten my daughter to do it yet and I dont believe forcing her is what God wants. So Ill leave it with her and hopefully one day she will decide to pick it up. Maybe you could do the same thing for the teen in your life :)
A copy of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
