Let’s Get Serious about Prayer!
Have you seen The War Room yet? I went to see it by myself and had tears streaming down my face at certain points throughout the movie. I’ve heard from many that the movie had such an impact on their life…their prayer life. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I highly recommend it. Here’s a trailer:
The movie impacted me as well, but over the time since I’ve seen it, I forgot about it…a pretty normal thing to happen. However, while I was browsing books at a local store, I came across the book Fervent by Priscilla Shirer which is based on the movie. The subtitle being, A woman’s battle plan for serious, specific, and strategic prayer. I bought a copy and started reading it the next morning.
I was immediately captured by it.
Join Me in Getting Serious about Prayer!
I decided that I wanted to do a series of blog posts as I study along with the book, so, over the next several weeks I am going to do just that. I would love it if you would join me! There are several ways you can do that.
- The first is, you can buy a copy of the book and read along with me over the coming weeks. Here’s a link for you to grab a copy if you need to. (Affiliate link.)
2. You can sign up to receive these weekly blog posts in your inbox so you don’t miss out on them. Simply sign up at the end of this post. I will be writing about my thoughts and insights on the different prayer strategies and encouraging you to implement them into your life.
3. You can join our Facebook group where we will be having discussions about the book. Do that here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/findingyourpossible/I’m very excited about how God will work in our lives as we seek Him more fervently in prayer.
This week I will be reading and focusing on the first strategy outlined in the book and will be centering the discussions in the Facebook group on it as well, so make sure you read chapters one and two before then. Next week’s blog post will be covering that first strategy.
Here is a quote from the first chapter to help wet your appetite for more:
Because life is just too impossible others — yours, mine, everybody’s. We simply don’t have the luxury of playing nice with prayer. Not if we want things to change. Not if we want to be free — from whatever’s keeping us held down and held back. Not if we want our hearts whole and thriving and deep and grounded…different. Not if we want to reach our destinies and experience God’s promises. Not if we want our husbands and children living out what God has called them to do and be and become. Not if we want a fence of God’s protection around us. Not if we want to bear the unmistakable mark of His favor upon us. Not if we want the devil and his plans to go back to the hell where they cam from.
Powerful isn’t it? In those first chapters Priscilla Shirer has already started to motivate me. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the book will do! Are you with me? Are you ready to start getting serious about prayer?
Sometimes I link up with these blogs during the week.
