The Battle Plan For Prayer – Book Review

The Battle Plan For Prayer

Do you hunger for a deeper prayer life but aren’t sure where to begin? Have you tried to establish a daily prayer habit but never had much success in getting it off the ground? If so, consider The Battle Plan For Prayer – From Basic Training To Targeted Strategies by Stephen and Alex Kendricks essential reading!

The Battle Plan For Prayer was written by the award-winning siblings who brought us War Room, and is designed to teach us how to pray powerfully and to cultivate a deeper relationship with God through prayer. The brothers write:

Answered prayers aren’t merely highly unlikely coincidences. They are fingerprints of a loving God who invites all of us to draw closer to Him, the one who made us all and “is not far from each of us, for in Him we live and move and have our being.” – (Acts 17:27-28)

That is our hope for this book – that you not only experience the joys of answered prayer more fully, but that you’ll get to know God more deeply and fellowship with Him more personally as you travel these pages.

The Battle Plan For Prayer is a wonderful resource filled with everything you need to lead a more prayerful life!

Fervent – Book Review


I will say this up front: I absolutely loved Fervent – A Woman’s Battle Plan For Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer! Fervent is written by Priscilla Shirer, the daughter of Dr. Tony Evans, and one of the stars of War Room.

What impressed me most about Fervent and what drew me in from word one was Priscilla’s ability to convince us of how urgently we needed to pray – about how real the spiritual battles we face are – about how devious and cunning a spiritual enemy we have. She impresses upon us that we are at war – that at every moment of the day, our enemy is actively scheming against us and doing a very effective job of keeping most of us from praying – and provided us with time-tested battle strategies to fight back.

Priscilla writes:

This is war. The fight of your life. A very real enemy has been fighting and scheming against you, assaulting you, coming after your emotions, your mind, your man, your child, your future. In fact, he’s doing it right this second. Right where you’re sitting. Right where you are.

But I say his reign of terror stops here. Stops now. He might keep coming, but he won’t have victory any more.

Because it all starts falling when we start praying.

Fervent is a book you need. I encourage you to add it to your spiritual library today!

This Means War – A Strategic Prayer Journal – Book Review

This Means War

If you’re looking for a way to engage your teens in prayer, This Means War – A Strategic Prayer Journal is written with them in mind!

This interactive journal is formatted as a prayer boot camp that encourages teens to tackle their biggest questions about prayer in a way that’s both personal and purposeful.

This will be a fun and effective book for teens to work through!

Prayer Works – Prayer Training And Strategy For Kids

Prayer Works

Prayer Works is a combination devotional / activity guide, written for 8 to 12 year olds, that helps children in this age range discover how prayer works and just how powerful prayer is.

The first half of the book contains thought-provoking devotions and prompts that teach children how to pray biblically.

The second half of the book contains perforated journal pages that kids can use to write specific prayers and post them on the walls of their prayer room – just like the characters in the movie!

Peter’s Perfect Prayer Place

Peters Perfet Prayer Place

Peter’s Perfect Prayer Place is an illustrated story book – written for children 4 to 8 years old – that teaches young readers an important lesson about talking to God! When Peter sees his Mom pray in her special prayer room, he searches for a special place of his own to pray – and learns that no matter where he prays, that God hears him!

What I like most about this book is that there is an interactive page of questions at the end of the story to help parents discuss and reinforce the lessons with their children – as well as stickers that children can use in their prayer journals to track when they pray – and when God answers!

    I haven’t seen the movie yet but it sounds like it’s a really big hit. Thanks for the heads-up and the chance to win these great books. I’m most intrigued by This Means War, the cover is very dynamic. Thanks again.

      Hi Carl,

      Thanks for entering the giveaway! I haven’t seen the movie yet either but I want to after watching the clip that I shared! I really love interactive journals and thought This Means War was awesome! I took a sample page of the innards and – since you mentioned it – I’ll try to tweet it out to you in a bit! 🙂

  2. I didn’t even know there were books associated with the movie. You’ve definitely convinced me I need to read Fervent, and I love that there are books that will equip my children as well!

      Thanks Michelle for entering our giveaway! I enjoyed all of the books but Fervent really drew me in from the moment I started reading! I am a huge fan of Dr Tony Evans (who I did not know was her father until I started researching the books for this review) and she has inherited her father’s engaging style!

      Priscilla (the author of Fervent) also plays the wife in the movie. I thought it was very cool that she was involved in this project both as an actress (her first job) and as an author!

  3. Dawn says:

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to have a chance at winning these books on prayer. They all look great! I haven’t seen War Room yet, but I want to.

      Thanks Dawn for entering our giveaway! I’m so excited to have the opportunity to share these wonderful resources with you! War Room is also on my list of movies to see – I’m so glad I was introduced to it through these books!

  4. Les says:

    I’ve seen the movie. I don’t have one particular favorite scene. I just felt very inspired and empowered afterwards. I bought the book based on the movie for myself and my grandma. These books look awesome. Thanks for the chance to win.

      Hi Les,

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on War Room with us! Since so many of us are just hearing about the movie and have yet to see it, knowing the movie left you feeling inspired enough to buy the book for yourself and your grandma – and that you felt empowered afterwards – is a powerful testimony!

      I’m sure you and your grandma will particularly appreciate each of these books after seeing the movie. Best of luck to you!

  5. Rachel Dodson says:

    I loved war room! The movie is amazing! So many good things in the movie I don’t even know where to begin.

  6. Joy D says:

    I’ve seen the movie and own 2 of the books. All amazing. Would love to win and give to the girl I’m mentoring.

    I loved this movie. It is a game changer for America. I am adamant that every Christian or spiritual person see this movie. It is a life-changing, real, and so moving. This giveaway is so exciting and wonderful. Thank you so much for the opportunity. 🙂

      You’re welcome, Mary, and thanks for your feedback! I did a lot of research on the movie before I wrote this post and watched a lot of video clips and the more I read/watched, the more excited I got. I am looking forward to seeing it, especially as I am reading everyone’s comments!

    The part I loved best is when the elderly woman is praying down heaven and God’s love on our nation. This scene brought me to tears.

  9. Marie says:

    I could hardly wait to see the movie and was not disappointed! Even if I don’t win I’m going to buy the resources. Blessings to you and yours!

  10. Chris says:

    The movie was great and looks like these books would be an excellent follow-up to the movie. We clapped at the end of the movie and there was a “Hallelujah!” What an excellent way to draw our nation back to the Lord and prayer. I am going to buy one or two of these books even if I don’t win. Thank you!

      Thank you Chris for sharing your experience of the movie – it’s nice to know, with all of the negative things that we read about in the news, that God’s people are still here, ready to take up His call!

      Best of luck to you and so glad to hear that you’ll be enjoying a few of these books either way! 🙂

  11. Mary Preston says:

    PETER’S PERFECT PRAYER PLACE would be wonderful for the children.

    I have not seen the movie yet.

      Has the movie reached Australia Mary?
      It was just released here in the US a few weeks ago!

      Best of luck to you – young children will love Peter’s Perfect Prayer Place – particularly those stickers! 🙂

  12. Casey says:

    i haven’t seen the movie but hope to soon!!

  13. Rachel Schichtl says:

    I haven’t seen War Room yet, but fully intend to the first chance I get. The book of yours ( of the giveaway) that I would like to read most is The Battle Plan for Prayer. Thanks for the chance.

  14. Gretta says:

    I have seen the movie and it was SO powerful! I loved how it so clearly presented the gospel message in this film and how it taught the need for and power of a REAL prayer life, not just “I prayed, check the box” prayer life. Our kids were especially impacted by the War Room and how to journal/write prayers too and I praise God how He is using this film to change and impact lives.

      Hi Gretta,

      Thanks for sharing your experience of War Room with us – I was especially excited to learn how much it impacted your children!
      I feel fortunate to all of you a chance to win these wonderful resources, particularly because there is something for everyone in the family!
      Best of luck to you Gretta!

  15. Denise E. says:

    I have not yet seen the movie, but I’ve read the reviews and it sounds like something I would like to see. The book that interests me the most is Fervent because I know the enemy is attacking every second of every day.

      You are so right about us being under constant attack – we need to be vigilant and aware of his schemes!

    This is an awesome giveaway. Thanks for hosting it!

  17. Debbie W. says:

    I loved the War Room movie. We went to see it last week. I’ve been trying to find a spot to use in my house besides on the floor in front of my sofa. Last night I was praying in bed as we go for tests today for my husband. And I said God You know sometimes this bed is my War Room as I laid my hand on my husband and prayed. Love you are giving these away. May they bless the family that receives them.

      Dear Debbie,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts on War Room with us! What I love, as I read through everyone’s feedback, is how much of an impact this movie is having on everyone’s lives – people are walking out of the theaters with the desire to strategically pray!

      I just recently started using an app on my phone called Trello that allows you to create visual Boards of all types. As I was reading your comment, the thought came to mind that even a tool like that could be effectively used as a “war room” in one’s pocket!

      It’s going to be really exciting to see where God sends these books – and whose heart and minds He is preparing for them! 🙂

  18. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie. How wonderful to read your reviews of these great prayer resources! Thanks so much! Virginia, USA

      Thank you Ginger – I feel so humbled to be a part of this! The books were my first introduction to the movie – and my excitement about it grows with each testimony I hear about it! 🙂

  19. Emily says:

    I cannot wait to see this movie!

  20. Sheryl M. says:

    I haven’t seen the movie yet only the trailer. Prayer is so needed right now for our country and perfect timing for this movie. I saw the Warroom book at my local store and loved the idea of remembering answered prayer. I’m also setting up a prayer wall at home.

  21. mongupp says:

    I’m so looking forward to seeing War Room and these books look so encouraging!

      I think we’re all getting excited about seeing the War Room (for the first, second, or even third time!) after reading everyone’s stories!
      Best of luck to you – the books are amazing! 🙂

  22. Tonya Atkinson says:

    I have not seen War Room yet I am interested in Peter Perfect Prayer Place

  23. chickie brewer says:

    I saw the movie and what I liked most Is watching her pray for her family and everything turned around.. Praise God!

  24. Marissa says:

    I can’t wait to see this movie. I’m just thinking it will have to wait until it comes out on video… I’ve read so many prayer books… it’s always encouraging to hear how other people are praying and the responses they get.

    Thanks for sharing this amazing giveaway!


  25. Katrina says:

    Haven’t seen the movie yet (we have to wait for it to go to video since it is way too expensive for our family to go to the movies).
    Fervent looks like a book that would be a great kick in the pants for me, to encourage me and challenge me to pray more fervently!

  27. Leslie says:

    Thanks so much for the suggestions. We were talking about that movie and how we wanted to see it yesterday. As far as prayer books, I love the Storme Omartian ones. I definitely want to check out that last picture book you mentioned!

  28. MISSY says:

    This moving was one of the most meaningful movies I have seen in my life. People clapped at the end. I’m just sorry that I saw it alone, instead of with my husband. (he was watching football). Hopefully we can see it together soon!

  29. Katrina Epperson says:

    What a wonderful giveaway for the entire family. No, I haven’t seen the movie yet. I am looking forward to seeing it though. What impresses me about each book is how it stresses the importance of prayers and guides the reader. Thank you for this opportunity.

  30. I’m so excited and I haven’t even seen the movie yet! Thanks for sharing this with the CBB group. I will pass this on to my friends as well!

      I’m very excited about the response we’re receiving and can’t wait to see who God chooses to send these books too!

  33. Connie Saunders says:

    I haven’t seen the movie but I am a big fan of the Kendrick brothers and I appreciate the good movies that they make. Our country is in need of a return to the standards that made us a great society. Prayer and obedience to God’s Word is the way to begin!

  34. MB says:

    I think it’s lovely that they’ve created a set of books for the whole family, including any little ones! That’s so awesome.

    Your review for The Battle Plan for Prayer certainly peaked my interest as I have tried sooo many times to establish a regular prayer schedule.. Maybe I should pray about it?? Ha!

    Hello Joy,
    My husband and I have been married for 19 yrs. We were young when we married I was 18 him, 21. We were both active duty USAF at the time. I have since gotten out of the USAG and I am currently a nurse. My husband is still currently serving 21yrs and going strong, and getting ready to spend a year in Korea with out us his family (daughter 11, son with Aspergers 14, and a son who will soon be following his our footsteps will be joining the USAF and leaving for Basic Training towards the end of December. He will be greatly missed. As for my husband he is a new believer thanks to his commander here at our current Duty Station. Upon the advise of our Counselor my husband and I went on a date and watched the WAR ROOM. What an amazing movies. We both felt convicted when we left the theater. I’m hoping to be able to share our experience with our children and this would be a wonderful opportunity to be able to bless them. I know my daughter would be greatful to Receive It Works and my younger son would enjoy This Means War! I would be thrilled to receive Feverent and I can’t wait to develop my own battle plan while reading along with the Battle Plan for prayer which I will share with my husband. (I plan on sending Him one to Korea as a surprise). I’m currently making room in our home for a prayer closet. I will be praying for Gods will. Many blessings and thank you.

  39. Heart of a Philanthropist Blogger Kim says:

    I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I promoted it like crazy. We need to support Christian theater as much as possible! I am most excited about Fervent!

  40. I saw this movie with my 4 daughters and my husband when we were having a very hard time with some issues. During this movie, we all cried and went home and prayed together. The next day all of our problems were solved and each one of us are planning on having a War Room in our new house.

    Prayer changes things! I would love to have this set for my family, so we can grow closer spiritually, emotionally and mentally.

  41. gloria says:

  42. Priscilla says:

    War Room is such an incredible inspiring movie! I love the quote by Ms. Clara – “Victory doesn’t come by accident.” This is so true, but so often we forget or are distracted from this reality. I love how this movie reminds us of the part we must play in the walking out of God’s will on earth!
