Sometime after we watched the movie War Room, (which I also highly recommend), someone mentioned to me that there was a book that explained in greater detail about prayer (to God in Jesus’ name) that is strategic , specific and powerful. The kind of prayer that the lady in the movie prayed and changed the situation she was in. That got my attention right away! I knew the devil has strategies against us. It says so right in Ephesians 6:11. “Put on the while armor of God , that you may be able to stand against all the strategies and deceits of the devil.” So, I wondered if I could learn some strategies to help me wage war against the devil when I prayed.
When I read Fervent I learned a lot more about the different strategies the devil attacks us with and the different areas of our lives he attacks us in. I have definitely struggled in several of these areas. Fervent is so helpful and hopeful! It explains how Jesus has already won the victory for us! It explains how to pray specifically and strategically.

In part 2, I’ll give a testimony about how God has answered some prayers of ours.
