Fervent Prayer Strategies
Welcome to our blog series on Prayer Strategy! Over the next several weeks we will be walking through the book Fervent by Priscilla Shirer. If you don’t have the book yet, you can grab it on Amazon by clicking here!
10 Fervent Prayer Strategies
This book outlines 10 different prayer strategies and encourages you to craft your own prayer for each strategy. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I’m writing down my prayers, plus chapter notes, in Live Oak Boutique’s Heartfelt Prayers Journal. If you have the physical Fervent book, there are little cards in the back that you could use, but I found that I don’t have enough space on those cards. I’ve got a lot to pray about I guess!
Printable Prayer Journal
If you don’t have the book, or a journal to use, I created this Fervent Prayer Strategies Journal for you to use! You can download and print it to create a journal of your own.

The pages are 5 x 8, so you can staple them together and make a little journal, or trim them down and add them to your current journal or war binder using washi tape!

“This is war, the fight of your life. A very real enemy has been strategizing and scheming against you, assaulting you, coming after your emotions, your mind, your man, your child, your future. In fact, he’s doing it right this second. Right where you’re sitting. Right where you are.”— Fervent, By Priscilla Shirer
Does reading that make you angry? Satan is always at work trying to sabotage our relationship with Christ. So how do we go to battle with the enemy? With prayer. Lots and lots of bold, determined, specific, strategic prayer. .
“God has deliberately chosen this particular vehicle (prayer) as the one that drives His activity in people’s lives. It’s what He allows us to use to cooperate and partner with Him in the fulfilling of His will. Prayer is the portal that brings the power of heaven down to earth.”— Fervent, By Priscilla Shirer
Combating The Enemies Battles
The 10 fervent prayer strategies that we are going to create will target the areas of our lives that Satan is working the hardest to destroy. And as Priscilla points out in her book, the battles the enemy wages against us possess a personality to them. He has an intimate knowledge of who we are and the precise pressure points where we are most easily taken down.
The enemy is set on destroying our hope and faith in the Lord. Now, I don’t know about y’all, but there is no way I’m letting the enemy rule over my heart, my family, or my life. These prayer strategies that we will cover, will give us something to fight back with! Ephesians 6:11 says, “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all the strategies of the devil.”
Satan’s Influence And Power
In the book, Priscilla mentions that most people either overestimate Satan’s influence and power, or they underestimate him and don’t assign him any credit at all for the difficulties he’s stirring up beneath the surface of their lives. I definitely fall into the later of the two. I was unaware just how personal, deceitful, and real the schemes of the enemy are. He has manipulated my emotions, made me question my worth and purpose, and caused friction, confusion, chaos, fear, and anxiety in my heart. And that is exactly what he wants. He aims to steal, kill, and destroy.
Has Satan gotten a foothold in your life? Have you had enough? If you’re ready to go to battle and fight back, then you’re in the right place! Join me as we create Fervent Prayer Strategies for our lives!
