Although I have no interest in the Kendricks' movies (this book is inspired by "War Room") nor do I think share much of the same view of faith and values with them, this still makes one of those surprise books that is good anyway, and gives you solid hints on efficient, powerful prayer.

(I do think that 'moments of silence' have their values, even if one doesn't use those moments for prayer - this was one disagreement, but to be honest, I disagreed with few enough, and small enough things in this

This book has helped me sooo much! I don't even know where to begin this review.
I usually don't enjoy this type of book. Sure, I've read several, but it's usually not a good, enjoyable experience and something that takes me forever to accomplish. That wasn't true with The Battle Plan for Prayer. I'll admit, it did take me awhile to get into this book, but once I did I thoroughly loved it.
The book is chock-full of helpful prayer guidelines, amazing Bible verses, and lots of inspirational sto

I will admit I struggle with prayer, I don't like praying out loud, in front of people even my family. I don't know if its because I'm afraid I will not say the right thing. I have always longed to be able to pray like Beth Moore, Sheila Walsh, Lisa Harper, Lysa TerKeurst, you name it, that is who I wanted my prayer life to be like. In the Battle Plan for Prayer, the Kendrick brothers will show us how to have a powerful prayer life. Guided by scripture we will learn to have a closer relationship ...more

This book has been one of the most useful tools in transforming my prayer life. I highly recommend reading this book. I believe it is useful not only to those new in their faith but those who have been following the Lord for years. I tend to be hesitant towards "fad" type Christian books. I was iffy as this was based off of the movie War Room and I wondered if this was just another way they were trying capitalize on the movie. It has surpassed my expectations in every way. I have a better unders ...more

This is a study guide designed to help you on your journey of learning how to pray more biblical and strategically. To help in using this book as a study guide here are suggestions on how to use it:
-read a chapter a day at least 5 days a week for the next seven weeks
-read the Bible each day (the suggestion is the Gospel of Luke so you can learn from Jesus about prayer)
-pray everyday. Prayer time should be both scheduled and spontaneous
There is a battle plan page where you can list you scheduled

Besides the fact the book is associated with the Kendrick's "War Room" movie release, it comes with a clear mandate: prayer is a weapon in the battle with the enemy.

It begins with a wonderful testimony of answered prayer which had serious implications for the two brothers and their family. Often our prayers can become unfocused and generic and this book provides a blueprint for a more strategic biblically based prayer life. The 35 short chapters are spread out across seven sections: Enlistment,

PERSONAL RESPONSE:
I enjoyed The Battle Plan for prayer by Stephen because it deals with serious subjects that most people can relate. The book is organized well, which helps track all of the ideas and strategies. I like how the author gives the reader a feeling that he is talking just to you. As the book goes on, I love how they use real life problems as examples.

PLOT:
The main events in the story are about how you should not fight with people but pray to have your problems fought for. The main

This study has revolutionized my experience with prayer. It's helpful to have strategies and a better understanding of something so fundamental to the Christian faith. I feel changed having put a focus on communicating with God in better ways. It helped being involved in a small group going through the workbook as well. I also used the prayer cards that go along with the study that seemed to say exactly the things my heart needed to say at the time. I found the movie War Room pretty entertaining ...more

This is such a phenomenal book that focuses on prayer and doing so strategically and being specific. I loved every chapter and how it gave tips, ideas, prompts and scriptures to help me understand the different layers of prayer. Though prayer is complex, it's fairly simple as this book shares. I love the Kendrick brothers because their movies are amazing. This book was just as great, if not better than their movies.

Obviously if you are not a Christian , for you this book will not be relevant as it is very scripture based. If you are, it is an awesome resource.
There is nothing here that was new to me but it is a really thorough guide! The prayers are really useful and the appendix too. I really do need to be a bit more methodical. I am sure there are many things I could have prayed for but didn't think to.
I loved the film that this came from. I intend to keep the book and dip into it to keep me feeling

This was well researched and written. It was thought provoking and helpful in learning to think about praying effectively. I do wish there were some prayer templates in the appendix, because it seems a bit overwhelming to me to pray for everything discussed in all 35+ chapters. But I think that's just me and not the book (there probably is something similar to a prayer template in it).

It was challenging, inspiring, and thought provoking to read this book. Very biblically based way of praying an

Method for creating a prayer list:

1) What are your top 3 biggest needs right now?
2) What are the top 3 things you're most stressed about?
3) What are 3 issues in your life that would take a miracle of God to resolve?
4) What is something good and honorable that, if God provided it, would greatly benefit you, your family and others?
5) What is something you believe God may be leading you to do, but you need His clarity and direction on it?

This book was a very easy read. Very encouraging and the prayers were beautiful. I would recommend this book for someone who is just starting off in prayer and mabye hasn't read a deeper book like the power and purpose of prayer by Dr.Myles Munroe. I didn't receive much revelation or new things I didn't already know. I absolutely loved the scriptures at the start of each chapter as well as at the end of the book. ...more

When I was looking for a Bible study based on the popular film, War Room, this is more of what I had in mind. My home fellowship went through the DVD-based study by the same authors, called War Room Bible Study, but it was not so much about prayer as about getting your heart right in preparation for prayer. This Battle Plan for Prayer does have several chapters on the same thing, but they also give plenty of instruction about how to actually pray for yourself and others.

The books consists of 35

The movie, War Room: Prayer Is A Powerful Weapon, inspires this book by Stephen and Alex Kendrick to instruct the reader on how and when to pray. Many people do not take advantage of the open, free channel they have with the One who is the solution to any problem. The authors also describe why one prays in the first place.

This book goes over all the names for God in the Bible and what they mean as well as monikers for Jesus. How to prepare for prayer and for what to pray includes introspection w

This 35 chapter [3-5 pages each] book works really well in addition to your Bible reading. I would recommend reading a chapter a day for a month. It starts out with some basic prayer strategies and moves towards more advanced, mature, targeted ways of praying [as the subtitle suggests]. I would highly recommend people to read this book AND to watch the movie that relates to it ['War Room']. It is loaded with Scripture and helps you understand the 'hows and whys' of prayer. The Appendix also has ...more

This book was given to me for Christmas three years ago, yet I didn't get into reading it until this year. War Room is one of my favorite movies tho, so I always suspected it would be a good read. And it truly is!

I think one thing that could make people dislike Christian books is when they sound preachy. I as a Christian dislike that too. And for a while, I thought that's what this would be like. Yet from beginning to end, this book has succeeded to do the one thing that means the most: It enco

I'm about halfway though this book, but wanted to enter a review now.

For any Christ follower, bible believing Christian; this book is a must read! The Kendrick brothers know how to deliver a powerful message throughout the book thus far. God loves us more than any human being ever could, He wants us to delight in Him always, to come to pray to Him and ask for what we need and want, but to do so by delighting in Him, seeking His joy and to never ask in sin. Just the same as a child asking a pare

This is by far and away the best book I have ever read on prayer. It is so good that I have been using it as the main staple (Bible apart) of the Prayer Development Group at church for the last six months. If you want to truly learn about prayer that comes from a strictly Biblical standpoint and avoids so much of the subjective experientialism of so many books on prayer, then this will be a revelation to you.

I just checked off "a book about prayer" from my 2017 reading list. I read "The Battle Plan for Prayer: Attacking Life's Struggles Through Prayer" by Stephen & Alex Kendrick. There's nothing wrong with this book as what it teaches is true. I just didn't find it inspiring or motivating. The audiobook narrator didn't help either unfortunately. A few tips will stick with me though. ...more

While I have finished this book, it will remain with my current bible study materials. Such great reference for strategic prayer, prayer that is scripture filled and powerful! I woukd count this among the top 5 biblically charged texts I own besides the actual Bible. Highly recommended to anyone that wants to transform their prayer life!

This book changed my prayer life. I loved the easy-to-digest chapters because I could read them in one sitting. With a busy schedule, this is important. :) I kept my pencil handy so I could underline (which I rarely do in books). I highly recommend this book if you're tired of feeling like praying just doesn't work. ...more

This book was amazing! Super helpful for any Christian.

This book explains what prayer is and how to pray in any situation. It goes over the different kinds of prayers. Each chapter ends with a prayer and the index contains a list of specific biblical prayers to prayer for yourself, others, and city.
