No one can sit on the sidelines today when it comes to spiritual matters. A war is going on between good and evil, and every believer is involved.

Stormie also provides many powerful prayers on numerous subjects that concern people today. For anyone eager to answer the call of God on his or her life to pray while responding to the desire of his or her heart to see people and situations change, Prayer Warrior is a must-read.

my review....

Based on solid, Biblical principals, and written in an easy-to-read manner, "Prayer Warrior" is just what you've been looking for, to guide you in your prayer life and challenge you at the same time! As with her prior books, Stormie writes from her soul, openly sharing from her own past and from what she's learned in her own Christian journey. I greatly appreciate the way that she draws from so many Bible passages and people's lives from the Bible, so that she's not just offering "Stormie's guide to prayer", but is actually uncovering the truths contained in the Word about the power of prayer to do battle in the world around us. I also love the prayers that she includes in her book, a section at the end of each chapter entitled "Prayer for the Prayer Warrior" that focuses on applying the truths contained in that chapter to your own life. Ultimately, Stormie encourages us to see that we are called to partner with God in prayer, by releasing his power on earth, encouraging us that "as you invite the Holy Spirit to lead you, your prayers will always be alive. Your prayer life will continue to be exciting as you feel His presence leading you". I've talked to many people who feel like prayer at times can be nothing but work, but Stormie reminds us to rely on God's power to enable us to join Him in prayer, and she's absolutely right! I know that even when I haven't felt like praying, that when I just start anyway and ask Him to be present, the Holy Spirit is always there and giving me the strength and joy to warrior with Him. I love that Stormie even notes that she doesn't want us just to READ about prayer, but to get out there and get praying! Excellent advice indeed.

I found "Prayer Warrior" to be a wonderful addition to the arsenal of prayer books available to readers today. I award it a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, and encourage you to pick up a copy of your own. You'll be glad you did!
