Fervent is a new book by the wonderful Priscilla Shirer, on prayer that can radically alter the way we look at prayer and our circumstances. It puts our focus on remembering the one who is really to blame for the things that goes on in our lives and relationships – versus our family, friends, coworkers, and anyone who is near enough for us to point our finger toward. We need to understand our spiritual battle that lies in front of us, and begin to take purposeful action against the Satanic attacks we face. In order to face our spiritual battle, we need to learn how to use our God-given weapon – prayer.
“[I]f he (the real enemy – the Devil) wants to keep pulling this stuff, then we’re pulling the gloves off. And putting the armor on.”
Are you ready? It is time for us to gear up, and learn how to combat the enemy’s strategies and efforts to bring us down! This book is one that has the potential to help us rev up our prayer lives. It has the potential to be used to be a tool of revival in our lives. A tool – that can only be used if we will…
- Read it slowly and deliberately
- Apply its principles to our lives.
- Focused on our relationship with God that is made possible through His Son Jesus Christ!
These points aren’t in any particular order. It is not about our own strength, but the power of God that is made readily available to us through prayer and our dependence upon our Creator.
This book is pointing me back to the truth. The enemy, my adversary, is the Devil and he is out to interfere in my walk with Christ and try to thwart God’s plans for my life. Anything he can do to interfere, that’s his goal. This book is teaching me strategies to combat the enemy using prayer and focusing not on my weakness, but God’s strength that is readily available to me.
