In Fervent by Priscilla Shirer, she sheds light on the enemy's dark and sinister plan. She exposes the enemy's plot and teaches how to craft a personal battle plan through fervent, specific - targeted prayer.
Not only does Priscilla expose the enemy for who he is and what he does, she points directly to scripture for the truth... Of who we are, how God loves and sees us... She gets down to business.
Fervent helps me take back my life - through prayer... Strategic - targeted prayer!
In this eye opening book I see how the enemy gets into aspects of my life and creates havoc... The enemy comes to kill and destroy - and against me he aims his arrow:
- Against my focus
- Against my identity
- Against my confidence
- Against my calling
- Against my rest and contentment
- Against my heart
- Against my relationships
Those are my seven... But God... To quote one of my favorite phrases in her book; We have hope and reassurance... Reassurance that always points directly to God.
In one of my many favorite parts of the book Priscilla reminds us "that the enemy has boundaries and limitations" - did you read that? The enemy has boundaries (he can only go so far) and he has limitations (he is limited, unlike God). I needed to read her words...
"The enemy cannot be everywhere at once (only God is omnipresent)
The enemy cannot read your mind, (only God is omniscient)
He is an illusionist, using cunning trickery to deceive and mislead
(only God can work flat-out, unmistakable miracles)
And last but not least the enemy is running out of time (only God is eternal)"
All of that reassures me and I am so thankful for her words! I know these things, I do, but sometimes when I am in the "thick" of life's deepest muck I need to remember that my God is bigger. He has no equal or opposite. There is no better time to remember this than during my prayer time - Praise God!
Prayer is so much more than saying Grace before a meal or praying your kids to sleep with request of sweet dreams. It's our direct communication line to God. It's our specific and focused conversations with the Almighty for our needs, our families (husbands and children), our hearts, our fears... Praying on the full armor of faith found in Ephesians.
So regardless of where you are with your prayer life; at the very beginning, where you never pray out loud or a seasoned prayer warrior - this book will expose the ways the enemy targets you. It will help draw you closer with God and craft your own strategic battle plan...
