My friend Kerrie and I are leading a Women’s Bible Study / Prayer Group in our little town. To kick off our Summer study, last week we watched the inspiring movie about the power of prayer, called “War Room,” starring Priscilla Shirer. Now we are all pumped and ready to dive into Priscilla’s book on prayer, titled, “Fervent – A Woman’s Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer.” And we are preparing to practice writing and praying our own strategic War Room Prayers.
We are titling our Summer Meetings, “This Means War,” (same as the first chapter of Fervent.) Because…
You have an enemy. And he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear. He does it strategically. He does it specifically. He’s doing it right this minute, in face—aimed at personally drawn targets on your heart, your home, your mind, your life. – (from the back cover of Fervent by Priscilla Shirer)
In the book Priscilla explains that, even though God is on our side, victories don’t happen by accident. We must use the weapons of The Word of God and fervent prayer to fight back. And we need a plan— a strategy for war.
Through prayer you’ll not only be able to defend yourself from incoming sniper fire but through Almighty God will you able to push into enemy territory and take . . . stuff . . . back. – Fervent, pg. 7
Are you tired of losing daily battles? Are you ready to walk in victory? I know I am. God has already given us everything we need to walk in victory, so let’s sharpen our swords and begin to use them strategically.
God’s plan for you is to move you into a position of impact by infusing you with truth and employing you in prayer. – Fervent, pg. 8

In the book, Priscilla gives us an acronym for prayer:
P is for Praise.
R is for Repentance.
A is for Asking.
Y is for YES! “All of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding ‘Yes!'” – 2 Corinthians 1:20 NLT
There are some prayer cards included in the back of the book for the purpose of writing out our prayer strategies. But honestly, they are a little small to me, and a little… um… well… boring.
If I’m going to be looking at something every day, like I plan to do with my war room prayer strategies, I had rather be looking at something that is pretty. So…
I made my own (pretty) War Room Prayer Journal templates, based on the acronym described above for PRAY. We are going to hand them out at our Bible Study / Prayer meeting on Tuesday. And I want to also make them available for you, my online friend and sister in Christ.
They are set up two on a page, so that you can print them on a regular letter size paper and then just cut the paper in half. I left the template black and white so that you can add your own color, using markers of colored pencils, if you like.
Or you could print them on colored paper, maybe even choosing a different color for different areas of prayer— like pink for passion (Strategy #1 in the book), blue for focus (Strategy #2) and green for Identity (Strategy #3), etc.
You can tape your War Room Prayers up on your wall, or bathroom mirror, or punch holes and put them in a notebook. Use them in whatever way works best for you.
For more ideas on what to do if you don’t have room for a war room, see my post on Bringing Your War Room Out of the Closet. (On that post I also include a free printable coloring page of Miss Clara’s prayer.)
Simply fill in the form below and you will not only get instant access to this printable War Room Prayer Journal Template, but you will also gain access to my entire library of printables, including Scripture art coloring pages, mini journal cards, Bible journaling templates, lock screens and more.
