  1. This book choice comes at a good time for me because I have felt myself falling away from the diligent prayer I used to keep up. I need some help implementing focused prayer again in my daily life.

  2. Love book club! I really enjoyed the videos with Emily last time! I haven’t used Blab before, so I’m interested in that live interaction. Thanks!

  3. I’m excited! Because I’ve heard such great things about Priscilla Shirer and I’d love to improve my prayer life. Also, I’ve never participated in a virtual book club and I’m sure it will be an encouragement to us all.

  4. I’m really excited about the book club because i really need the fellowship and I’m also looking forward to some great discussions about this terrific book.

  5. I’m excited because I need all the help I can get when it comes to becoming a prayer warrior; so a free giveaway on the subject is awesome!

  6. Books are very important. The Bible is the best but I ‘m pretty sure this is a great read also. God Bless <3

  7. I love Priscilla Shirer. I have enjoyed a couple of her books/Bible Studies. I loved War Room. Would love this ~ thank you thank you ~ God bless you and thank you for allowing God to work/flow through you to witness and share His love to others!

  8. I am excited about this book as I had checked it out from the library but not read it yet. I did read the first page that said it should be a book well written it, so I decided I needed my own copy. Just haven’t gotten one yet.

  9. I love book club. It really sounds great. I would love to make my prayer life even better than it is so I can know the Lord better. It is also great to see the feedback and comments of the other participants. It makes me feel I am not alone. Thanks for the opportunity! Can’t wait! God bless you!

  10. This is a special opportunity for me. I just finished reading War Room last night and prayed that God would send me something to help continue to grow my prayer life and Boom there you were this morning. Can wait to get started. Ordering my book right now. Thank you ladies for all you do.

  11. The power of prayer is incredible. I would love to be part of reading this book and hearing what the authors reveal in their experience of prayer.

  12. I’m very excited about this book! I would love to use it and incourage to get to know other members better and to learn how to use prayer in a more focused manner. 🙂

  13. I am so excited to learn about prayer, how to do it effectively, to cover all the ones I love and to battle things unseen.

  14. I love your book studies, it is so nice to check in when I have time and review whenever I need to watch again. I have been a fan for years! Thank you for being here to guide me, I cannot participate in my normal book study with the ladies at my church because I am a confirmation mentor. So this opportunity to do a book study with others is so much fun.
    God bless and keep us,

  15. The more I grow the more I realize that there is such a need for strategic prayer. I am still refining what mine looks like and would love to read this!

  18. Hooray! I’ve never read Priscilla Shirer before but am excited to get started with another book club. I haven’t done any yet this year and have been missing that interaction.

  19. This is wonderful news! I have been wanting to read Fervent and now, this really is a great opportunity to read and study the book and share thoughts with others. I am so happy! 🙂

  20. I love the godly wisdom Priscilla Shirer has to offer! What incredible resources to stretch and challenge myself to prioritize prayer and be intentional and specific with it. Thank you for organizing the book club!

  21. I actually work at a Family Christian Bookstore, so I was definitely well aware of War Room and all of the products that went with it. I heard soooo many good things about War Room from my customers, and I finally got around to seeing it and loved it! Priscilla Shirer was awesome in the movie, and I have a feeling she has written a wonderful book that I can’t wait to dive into! And I love how it has tear out prayer cards in the back! So cool!

  22. really excited as I’ve been going through her Armor of God study and this will be the perfect follow up! 🙂

  23. I really have been having a mind battle lately… I really just want to dig deep into prayer and become more fervent in the Lord. I’d love to join this group…

  24. This is so exciting! I really need some boost in my prayer life and this just might be the ticket! Thank you for hosting!

  25. I loved War Room and would love to study this book. The Lord seems to be focusing on prayer in my own life and the life of my church, so it comes at a good time.

  26. Who doesn’t need to grow in prayer? I love that this is the book chosen for the study and am excited to learn from Emily.

  27. This book comes at a good time for me as I’m trying to learn to pray and trust in Him again. I lost my son Isaac when I was 34 weeks pregnant in September and I’m slowly learning that God is using his little life to teach me so much about faith and hope. Looking forward to reading this book with all of you.

  28. This book sounds so incredible and just what I need right now! This will also be my first time participating so I’m very excited to see what’s in store and see how I’m able to grow and expand through this journey!

  29. “Fervent” prayer is one of the most important things we can do all throughout our day! The book sounds amazing! Thank you for offering this delightful treasure of gifts!

  30. This is my first book club with (in)courage. I can’t wait to start!! Looking forward to the book choice.

  31. What an excellent theme for a book study! Would love to join you ladies and be challenged and inspired to do the hard work of praying more diligently!!

  32. Awesome! The ladies at our church are currently doing her Armor of God study – it will be great to follow that with this!

  33. I read Fervent back in September in 2 days – it is that good! I am excited to go back and re-read the truths in this book and really apply it to my life at this time!!

  34. I would love for the opportunity to read this book and learn how to pray more so I can have a deeper relationship with God.

  35. I would love to join in with this book club because I in 2016 I have surrendered all my heart to the Lord and fully giving into what the Lord has planned for me. I pray a lot, but I sometimes feel like I’m not praying the right things. I’ve been wanting to get into a study about prayer and this comes at the perfect time!

  36. I am excited because this is my first time ever to join a book club and I need it so much. I like the way that I can follow along and if for some reason I can’t because of the crazy schedule, it will still be available for me to view & read later. Looking fwd to changing, growing and connecting.

  37. I so need this! I bought the movie without seeing it in theater (never made the time) and I watch it over again for encouragement.

  38. I’ve had my eye on this book for several months. Currently, working on the Battle Plan for Prayer Bible Study with a group at church. Really enjoyed the movie War Room and know I need to get my prayer life in gear.

  39. I am EXCITED to join in! This is just what I need to remind me that God is always near and to never give up in the power of prayer. It is HIS timing in all things, not mine. I can’t wait to dig in. 🙂

  40. I am glad to study even more on prayer as God is convicting me to pray rather than just to think about praying!

  41. “Fervent,” that’s a word that I’ve come across before many moons ago perhaps even in my childhood as my mom first taught me to pray. But the miracle of God is that He gave me a heart for prayer it’s been a common thread weaving through my life but I want it to be effective, sweet as incense and for His glory. It is why I look forward to participating in the scriptural study of prayer through reading this book.

  42. I put Fervent on my Amazon wish list after reading a friend’s review of it. This is just the push I needed to actually read it. Thank you. : )

  43. I really need to dig deeper into prayer and focus on leaning into God more through it. I think it will be awesome to do it with a community of women.

  44. I have enjoyed your emails for a couple of months now! Looking forward to joining the book club. Some of the ladies in my church finished Armour of God by Priscilla Shirer and we loved it! This book club is coming at a great time when my church is really focusing on prayer right now!

  45. I saw prayer room at the theater and bought the DVD. I found an area in my office for my prayer corner and I would love to be a part of this book club. I have done them in the past and always found it to be helpful to do the book in a group.

  46. Prayer has been a huge focus for my family right now. Different difficult situations have given us all a heart for learning to pray. I’m excited for this book because I really want to dig deeper into prayer and learn how to pray with expectation and diligence. I can’t wait to start!

  47. Yes! Im so excited about this book club book. God really spoke to me through the movie and I’ve recently started reading Fervent. It’s so awesome and I’m really excited to discuss and learn with other women. Yahoo!

  48. Bought the book from Priscilla’s website when it was first released…after a year of God placing a renewed approach to prayer I was excited to learn from her experience and from what the War Room movie inspired in all of us. Excited to hear this (in)courage book club to help encourage us to crack open the book and dig into the contents…purposefully praying for God to move in our lives and the lives of others. Blessed by your efforts!

  49. Oh, praise God! I’m excited to join in because I’ve been prompted by the Lord to ramp up my prayer life and get more serious about intentional prayer. What a great book choice!

  50. I love the fact I can actively participate and implement strategies in spiritual warfare against the true enemy! I’ve listened to many Tony Evans sermons and I love the messages and the life application he gives and I know the Lord will bless this book club when we all come together and fight against the dark principalities- a 3 braided rope is harder to break and I just believe when we come together and pray and share with one another during the book club we will defeat the enemy in this spiritual warfare that is going on in our lives! Thank you Lord for this opportunity for there is an army rising up!!

  51. I am excited for the book club with fervent. I am hearing God’s call in strengthening my prayer life and relationship with him. Hope this will give me the oportunity to fill me as I prepare to fill others.

  52. I’m so excited to join this book club because of War Room. I can’t remember ever watching a movie where the audience was so actively involved in a positive way. There were all kinds of “amens!” and people raising their hands to God. It was an amazingly positive experience to share with people and I look forward to doing it again with the group reading “Fervent”.

  53. Priscilla Shirer is definitely using her God-given talents in Bible Study and now the movie. Can’t wait to see what this study brings to my life!!

  54. Absolutely love “Bloom” Book Studies, they have always come at the perfect time when I find myself struggling through tough times and they have gotten me through with God’s love and inspiration from wonderful authors. I would love to be part of this one too.

  55. Oh my gosh I’m SO excited – I can’t wait because I NEED to improve my prayer life – this is just what I need to keep me on track!!! And what a fun thing the pack would be to win with the magnets to constantly remind me too in the kitchen!!!!

  56. I’ve missed our book clubs! I’m so excited! I got this book awhile back and haven’t read it yet – so this will be the motivation to get it read & have fun doing it!

  57. Sounds great! I haven’t done an online book club before that I can remember, so this will be a new experience. 🙂

  58. I have heard really great things about this study and I struggle with my prayer life. I am looking forward to going through this study and hopefully learning how to start a daily prayer time routine.

  62. Raise em Up Lord!! Raise ’em UP! Anyone who wins these is equipped in the Lord’s Army to Raise up our families and nations in fervent prayer. I have been longing for a Ladies Bible study group that I can participate in while a single working parent. This Priscilla Shier
    Fervent” Book Club fits the answered prayer bill 🙂

    I was blessed to meet Ms.Clara aka Karen Abercrombie at the Williamson Chapel Ladies Brunch in early December. And to hear Priscilla Shier at Laides Conference at The Refuge last fall. And to see War Room during the Preview evening. Very moving and very inspirational as I raise up my graduating senior son. . .

  63. Excited to see this!! Just had a good friend tell me she is reading Fervent and how powerful it is. I’m currently doing “The Armor of God” study by Priscilla in a women’s Bible study. Praying strategically is something I need to learn more about. Thanks for your ministry.

  64. Looking forward to jumping in on this book club thing! As a full-time working momma and wife of a pastor, I have found personal edification is a necessity and not an option. (Also, love the ability for feedback.) What a beautiful thing this is!

  69. This will be my first book club and I’m excited to connect with other women who are passionate about prayer. I’m also anxious to learn new ways to pray more specifically. Many Blessings!

  70. I saw the movie War Room with church friends. I loved it so much that I brought the movie. My hubby and I saw the movie New Year’s Eve. He loved it so much he cried throughout the movie. I need to get back to a Fervent Prayer life. I want to be like Miss Clara who prayed intently and saw prayers answered!
    Blessings 🙂

  72. HI my name is Angela. I’m excited about this book club. I’ve been troubled lately at the lack of fervency in my prayer life, not that I pray alot either.

I look forward to reading this book and blogs and listening to the livechat.

  73. Looking forward to starting this book as I have been wanting to read it for some time. I just recently moved to a new state and am struggling right now trying to find my place. I think this book would help.

  80. I would love to be part of the book club. I’ve been looking at the book for a while, so now’s a good time to get it.

  81. I did a Priscilla Shirer study years ago and really got a lot out of it. I’m looking forward to hearing a fresh word from her through this book study!

  82. Everything by Priscilla Shirer is great! I’ve done all her studies & books, and you’ll be so blessed! Join if you’re hesitating!

  83. This book study is so perfectly timed! (As with everything God does.) In my changing season, I feel called to dive deeper into prayer and don’t know where to start. I’m sure this study will help! Thank you!

  84. I am so excited to be part of this book club on Fervent Prayer!! My husband and I recently watched War Room and we created a war wall in our house (no closet big enough for us to fit, haha =)). I know God is going to do great things in this Bible Study and as an avid journal-er I would love to be selected for the prize! Looking forward to great things with this Bible Study!

  85. I’d love a chance to win because this book sounds wonderful and just what I need to read right now.

  87. My one New Years resolution was to become more prayerful (and the always weight loss), but ultimately it’s prayer. Can’t wait for this!

  88. This book sounds awesome! I loved the movie War Room, and it has really made me think how I can live a life filled with more prayer time!

  89. Bought the book last year and gave it away before I had a chance to read it. LOL…will have to go out and buy another one. Love this! Thank you and be BLESSED.

  90. I love Priscilla Shirer and loved War Room! I would love to have the book Fervent to learn more about in depth, intimate and heart felt prayer! The book club would be a great place for learning, sharing and encouragement!

  91. I have been feeling the need to look deeper into my prayer life. This Book Club comes at the perfect time! Which is a confirmation from the Lord to me! Thank you for sharing with us. Looking forward to this greatly!

  92. Since I can’t be a part of a study at my church right now I look forward to this study and have wanted to be a part of a incourage study since my friend told me about it a couple years ago! This study would be percect for me as I always want to become a better prayer warrior! I have many people I pray for and want to see answers to those prayers!

I am so excited to read this book with y’all and I can’t wait to see what He does during our time of reading and learning together. Thanks again, for this opportunity!

  106. I have seen this movie four times now and have since purchased the dvd. I would love to win this giveaway as I am so in need of encouragement to start a war room of my own and have been dragging my heels with excuses of not having the right set up. I so need accountability from fellow sisters in Christ to encourage one another and pray. Thank you for the opportunity.

  107. Already have this book and would wanted prayer to be my focus this year. What a great time to have a weekly study.

  108. Because my life has been needing this. This will help for me to be more accountable about my prayer life.

  109. I LOVED War Room and am SO excited to participate in this book club! It’s going to be so helpful to have the discussional side to reading this book!!

  110. I just started reading Fervent and I’m so in love with this book. I want to share this love with everybody, it’s like the sun coming up after a very dark night. I understand everything and can see clearly. I can’t wait to dig deeper into this book

  111. I’m so excited about devoting some time in March on Prayer. I truly believe that God dwells in us and He longs for us to come to him in prayer, with purpose and faith. I want to learn to pray more boldly! Thanks for giving us an opportunity to discuss this together! Looking forward to it!

  112. I love reading and having this community make recommendations is awesome! Being accountable and getting other’s perspective makes the reading engaging and thoughtful!

  113. I’ve REALLY been wanting to read this book and I’m really excited to be able to read it in a setting that includes a discussion with other women

  114. I’m excited for the book club for sooo many reasons! I loved War Room, and combined with really well-timed messages from our pastor on prayer (aren’t they all!) I am making the effort to be better at prayer, so that I may walk closer to our Father.

  115. I’m just finishing a group bible study of The Battle Plan for Prayer and this is the perfect follow-up. It will also be my first book club with (in)courage and I’m excited about that.

  116. This book has been in my “to read” pile for a couple months. What better time to read it than with this book club, so excited! Hoping I can find a few friends to read it with me.

  117. Would love to read her book! Our women’s bible study just recently finished Priscilla’s Gideon study and loved it. I’m sure her book would be excellent as well.

  118. I am excited to join this book club because I know the devil is always lurking around and I do NOT want my family or myself susceptible to his deeds.

  119. Oh my goodness, I just stumbled onto your page and I’m so excited to join this book club. I’m becoming an empty nester this month and God knew I was going to need some Him time and prayer time now with all my free time!

  120. I am really looking forward to this book and having the opportunity to encourage – and be encouraged – when it comes to praying fervently…earnestly…in all situations ❤

  121. I am excited to join in the book club. I love the thought of being a prayer warrior with so many other women. I plan on taking my book with me to college.

  122. I’ve been in the middle of a crossroads situation for a while, and I’ve been feeling like I can’t hear what God is asking of me. I think reading this book would help me use my prayers to ask God what he has planned for me and actually be open to hearing his answer.

  123. It’s so exciting when God gives you a hunger for a more focused prayer life and then you find out what the Bloom March Book is! I’m Excited!

  124. Fervent has been on my book list, as I’ve been feeling called to grow closer to God through prayer.

  125. I don’t usually join book clubs, even though it sounds fun and interesting, because I can’t usually “attend”. I’m giving this a try because I really, really believe in the subject, and want to have the added encouragement of the book club to keep me on track and be increasingly successful in this spiritual warfare, this following hard after God, our Shield and Defender, and our Rear Guard and Protection. Thank you for this opportunity.

  126. I loved War Room and am really excited to learn how to be more intentional with my prayer. I have heard so much about this book and can’t wait to join in fellowship in this book club!

  127. I’ve joined a really powerful prayer group of amazing women of God through people I met on a story {seriously}. This would be a perfect companion study. Thanks for all you do for us here in your “community.”

  128. I am excited because I feel like I just give random thoughts when praying and would like to be more focused!

  129. I just ran across this book club while skimming through Instagram and couldn’t be more happy to go sign up. I’m excited to see this book and join in because I have a teenage daughter and she’s going through a rough time. I’ve never prayed harder in my life than I have this past year. I think this book can help me focus and learn how to pray effectively for her, hubby and myself as well as we navigate these emotional teen years as well as pray for others around me (not related to dd’s trials).

  130. I would love to win this giveaway. Prayer is something I struggle with daily. I believe this Bible Study would be a way to encourage me to go pray more often. I love incourage!

  131. Funny I bought this book a while back and put aside. I have felt the nudge to get into this study. I need to focus my prayer life.

  132. This is a great time for me to focus on my prayer life, my life is great, but my conversations with God have gotten less and less. I didn’t grow up in a prayerful home so I am learning how to become a prayer warrior.

  133. Prayer has always been difficult for me. It is the place in my faith that I feel the most inadequate. I have tried so many different strategies and devotionals and nothing seems to work I’m hoping that this book club is a place of learning and friendship.

  134. Just discovered this site today. The book club sounds like something I would enjoy and grow from plus I love Priscilla Shirer’s studies.

  135. I would love to win because I love to be in community with other believers. I desire to get to know God better through more regular prayer.

  136. I love {in}courage and all that you do for us…so thank you! And, this would be my first time doing a “book club”, of any kind, so that would really exciting.

  137. So excited for this book club! I bought the book a couple months ago and have meaning to start it but now I’ve been encouraged and why not do it with other women!! Love it!!

  138. Prayer is something I struggle with so this is a timely book and discussion. Also I enjoyed the last one.

  139. I know that prayer is so vital to my daily life and I love Priscilla’s teaching so much. I believe this will be good accountability for me. Thank y’all for all you do!

  140. I am excited to join in this book club and to work through Fervent with y’all… I believe y’all are an answered prayer for me!… Several times over the last couple of months, the Lord has impressed on me my need for a more active, focused, disciplined prayer life… I’ve been working on it, but feel scattered and a bit ill-equipped… My hope is that Fervent will help me to really press in and see God move in me, and in those He has placed around me… I am excited to see what He will do for all of us!… I haven’t yet seen War Room, but I’ve heard great things about it and hope to get to see it soon!… Thanks so much for offering this study AND for hosting such a great giveaway. 🙂

  141. I’m excited to join the book club because I started to dive deeper into the word . I believe with this study I’m going to be equipped to pray those fervent prayers for my life and for others.

  142. I can’t wait to read this book. It’s definitely a timely need as Satan is working hard in my life. I look forward to reading it.

  143. So excited to join the book club. I already had the book, so it’s a perfect time to have accountability throughout.

  144. This is what I believe my next step needs to be. I just found out my daughter got accepted to grad school over eight hours away, and I can’t believe how much I am already missing her-she doesn’t go till May-and already worrying about her migraines, and so I need to not only learn how to pray, but also to be able to be able to be specific and purposeful. So count me in!

  145. Book club is an exciting opportunity for women to learn and grow together and doing deeper in prayer is so hugely important. I’m excited about this book!

  146. I’ve been struggling to press in. I need this study!! Thanks for a chance to win. Looking forward to getting started.

  147. I am away from my home church right now and would love to participate in this Bible study. I have never done a Priscilla Shire study before.

  148. I always enjoy your selections for the club! Thanks for the opportunity to win AND grow 🙂

  149. This is so timely. I just watched War Room a couple days ago, and am inspired to rev up my prayer life.

  150. How exciting! I have the book but haven’t gotten really into yet, and this is the perfect chance to get started up. Plus, improving my prayer life is one of the areas of obedience that I am working to improve, so the timing is spot on 🙂

  151. Recently, I was able to watch The War Room. I’m very happy to find a Bible study that will complement the movie because nobody wants to have a luke warm prayer life!!

  152. Interesting how Father leads, guides and directs our journey. Having read Emily Freeman’s blog post, Break This Habit Change Your Life (Feb 16,2016), I am encouraged to join this book club, a first for me.

  153. Excited about joining as our church is finishing up Battle Plan for Prayer also a book inspired byou War Room. Looking forward to reading Fervent.

  154. I would love this book. My prayer practice suffers greatly and I need more focus and guidance. Thank you!

  155. I’m looking for something to draw me closer in my walk with the Lord. This would be an awesome start for me!

  156. Priscilla Shirer breathes life into your soul with every single God-inspired word that she writes. I am excited to be a part of a community of women who are eager to grow their prayer lives!

  157. This book is so awesome and I would love to win the prize pack to give my daughter a copy of her own! This is going to be a great study

  158. Received this book as a Christmas gift from my son and daughter in law! I set up my War Room after seeing the movie. Recently finished Priscilla’s study on the Armor of God and was looking forward to starting this book when this Post appeared in my inbox! So excited to see what God has in store!

  159. With every year of my life – I’m 50 now – I realize more deeply how significant prayer is in fighting the spiritual battles (and there are LOTS of those) and in knowing richly the One who loves me most. It’s always an area in which I want & need to grow.

  160. I have struggled with how to pray and after watching war room I am excited to join this group and study more about prayer and how to stay focused and carve out that time and truly and intentionally be in the prayer time I set aside each day. And stop and listen to what the Lord is teaching and guiding me to do and pray for and not to forget to pray for thanks and the struggles of life as each one is a lesson also.

  161. I’m excited to join because I started Fervent a while ago, but haven’t found the focus to finish on my own. I know by participating in this book club and having a reading plan I’ll have the motivation to finally finish. I’m also so thrilled to be discussing and learning from the other women who are reading along.

  162. Loved the movie, War Room! And all the wisdom Priscilla Shirer has to share. I think the Bible study group I help lead is going to do Fervent next.

  163. I can’t wait to start this study. I am through the intro and into Chapter 1. I am ready to be intentional and start putting into practice what I am learning.

  164. I loved the movie War Room. Last year I was in a Bible Study at our church called Discerning the voice of God with Priscilla.
    I have been praying that God would help me and teach me how to pray more specifically. This is so perfect and such great timing. 🙂 I wonder why and Who was instrumental in that. LOL.

  165. I’ve heard AMAZING things about this book, and am very excited it’s the next (in)courage book club book! I’ve loved all the previous book selections, and can’t wait to dive into a book about amping up my prayer life!

  166. I’m so excited to join this book club! I have been trying to develop a deeper, more purposeful prayer life. I am the mother of three nearly grown young men and I’m feeling that I’ve failed them by not praying for them as fervently as I should have all these years. The War Room has inspired me to look at prayer through new eyes, and realize it’s not too late. God’s got more in store and I’m ready to learn how to align fervent and strategic prayer with God’s will. I’m so ready!!!

  167. I’m excited as it’s much more rewarding growing in God’s word and furthering our walks & prayer times with others. It’s inspiring, motivating & helps me to feel like we’re all in this together! I moved away from my core Bible Study & close knit group of sisters in Christ so am really feeling disconnected, I know that’s about to change!

  168. My prayer life needs more intentionality in it! I need to stop simply asking for this or that–even if it is good stuff for others. I need to pray with fervency using scripture as reference to denounce the evil one!

  169. There aren’t too many book clubs that are inspiring to be apart of these days. I am looking forward to gaining some insight on how women, especially busy women, use prayer to draw closer to the Lord. Looking for some ideas and (in)couragement on how to focus when praying because I have alot going on in my own life. I need some STRATEGY!!!

  170. what perfect timing, finding this, this particular book at this time in my life when I need to return to prayer and faith. Thank you <3

  171. This comes at a perfect time for me as i feel my prayer life needs a boost. Looking forward to it.

  172. What perfect timing! I have been so inspired by War Room, but with two precious littles at home, I find myself exhausted and frankly don’t know where to start. Silly, I know, but it’s just how I feel. Looking forward to getting in gear with this study!

  173. I am so excited for this reading! I’ve already read the book and it’s amazing! I plan to read again and again. Priscilla is so wonderful to have shared her strategies with us. It’s truly a blessing!

  174. This book means a promise to get back to the source. To make a commitment to my quiet time and prayer life that I have let slip away or be replaced by busyness.

  175. I’m excited about participating in this book club because I enjoyed the one with Emily Freeman and I’ve seen The War Room and know I will enjoy and benefit from this book by Priscilla Shirer.

  176. I am so excited for this series, bc I’m tired of Satan messing with my life, my family, and my husband. I want to fight back with Gods powerful weapon, PRAYER.
    Can’t wait!!!

  177. I’m currently going through a confirmation course and am seeking ways to enliven my spiritual life, and this book looks like the perfect compliment to what I’m doing!

  178. I love having a direction to aim for and a community for support and real conversation but as a busy momma the flexibility of going at my own pace!

  179. I love prayer. It’s my way of blessing family and friends. They have so completely blessed me. And I have the high privilege of a common, fumbling girl speaking with her Savior.

  180. Yay! I am excited to go through this book with y’all because I already have it AND it is just SO SO GOOD!

  181. I am excited for this book study because my prayer life needs improvement. I absolutely love the movie war room and I thought it was very inspiring.

  182. I am hungry for this encouragement to pray–to pray steadily, with commitment & with passion. I look forward to the words of support and encouragement here.

  183. I’ve never been part of a book club before, so this will be a first for me. I loved the movie “War Room” and it has inspired me to focus more on my prayer life. My entire world has fallen apart after the recent death of my beloved father right after Christmas. I haven’t been dealing with it well at all and haven’t felt that God has heard or responded to my prayers. Everything has been “on hold” and I’m struggling to find God again and learn to pray more fervently and effectively.

  184. I look forward to reading this book by an amazing author! Her words are powerful and thought provoking. It’s great to be a part of a book club in a community of women to learn from each other and pray for each other!

  185. So excited and thank you (in)courage for providing the opportunity to be a member of this book club! I’m looking forward to participating and I’m grateful for the chance to win one of the Fervent prize packs! What a joy it would be to use!! I enjoyed the movie War Room and I’m looking forward to reading this book.

  186. I’m excited to read this book and join in with other women who want to pray and share how God is present for us all!

  187. I actually just bought the book last week, before I heard about this book club! God has a way of creating little miracles.

  188. I am always humbled and encouraged by the amazing timing of God. It is no surprise to Him that I am almost finished with a Women’s Bible Study on Priscilla Shirer’s Armor of God……and now my first introduction to the (in)courage book club is her book Fervent?! Praising Jesus! I am so excited to continue in this subject & with this author. I had just been joyously grieving the end of the study and now have a new joy from the Hope that is ALWAYS in Him. Can’t wait to start this with ya’ll. Hoping my adult daughters will join as well. Praising Jesus, the lover of my soul!!

  189. I’m excited to join this book club!:) I have read Fervent and have talked about it with my local friends. Looking forward to hearing about how others think and feel about the book and about prayer.

  190. I’m excited for this study because I’ve wanted to read this book since I first learned about it but I haven’t been motivated to read it. Having a community to read it with and share discussion about the book with sounds like exactly what I need! I look forward to having a strategy to grow my prayer life and to really learn how to “fight my battles” in prayer. I’m excited to have a group to interact with and learn with! Can’t wait!

  191. I need to reenergize my prayer life! My life has been hectic, chaotic this year. I not only need to desperately carve out time for prayer, but make those prayers more intentional! Especially in light of the way the country is going and the way the election seems to be going! God please help us and revive this country!
    Blessings 🙂

  192. I have been struggling with trying to start a prayer journal and to remain faithful and committed. So thankful this is the book choice for study and direction.

  193. I love books and would love this new one. I just finished a book by one of your writers and it was amazing

  194. I really love the idea of this book and seeing how it can change my everyday life to be more soulful, more authentic.

  195. For over a year I felt a nudge to be in prayer more and make that a big priority and focus. Unfortunately I allowed the chaos of my life to be a distraction and excuse. I bought Fervent a few weeks ago and drew a line in the sand. When I saw this is the next book for the book club I was so excited. Looking forward to the community and opportunity to dig in even more. This is it, no more excuses!
