The beautiful experience of praying, the personal private time heart to heart with God, is just beyond
words. My Prayer Room aimed at inviting the others to join our prayer, to experience the intimate
encounter with Jesus. With just a simple registration process or login with your Facebook account, you
can invite your friends to enjoy this beautiful experience of praying. The initial stage of this app is
designated to pray for those who has chosen to live a consecrated life. That includes missionaries,
priests, nuns and all the faithful who are serving in the Church. You can pray for them, light a candle for
them and encourage all the others to care for them. Prayer rooms with other praying intentions will be
added on soon when the app is updated.
The War Room movie sparked a fire for many of us to develop our own War Room Scriptures prayer strategy.
Me included! 🙂
If I have one goal for this year, it is to deepen my prayer life. Specifically, I desire to do spiritual warfare on my knees. If this is a fight, it makes sense to be intentional about praying powerful war room prayers and having a ready set (think loaded gun!) of war room Bible verses to do battle with.
I’m tired of being too surface level, unspecific, and fleshly minded with my prayers.
I want to pray kingdom prayers with Spirit infused strength. This only happens by praying War Room Scriptures.
The community here on the blog. My IRL communities. My country.
I want to take some G.R.O.U.N.D. and there is nothing more powerful than praying God’s word!
The weapons at our disposal are strong enough to demolish strongholds and I, for one, am tired of not taking up arms more consistently and intentionally.
One of the things I did during my monthly personal spiritual retreat last month was select a few powerful scriptures to pray regularly.
The 10 powerful War Room scriptures below are essential for any war room… for any car, bathroom, kitchen or box… anywhere you want to do battle. 🙂
P.S. Many of these war room scriptures came from Chapter 2 of Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer.

10 War Room Scriptures to Pray Over Yourself
Please note the entries below the references are my own war room prayers.
I’ve had many readers ask what version of the Bible these prayers are. They are not a version of the Bible; they are the verse in my own words. I include them here to help others who do not know how to begin praying scripture. I’ve also included the scripture the prayer is based on.

War Room Prayer #1:
“Lord, I claim no righteousness of my own. I’m spiritually poor, utterly dependent, a beggar. But I cling to this: You justify the ungodly. This is the basis on which I pray and do battle.”
War Room Prayer #2:
“I acknowledge my struggle is not against flesh and blood. This battle isn’t about the physical issue I’m facing. It is against rulers, against powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. This is where I will do battle Lord, and I will do it in prayer.”
War Room Prayer #3:
“According to Your word, Lord, my enemy has been disarmed and embarrassed. He has been overruled (Eph 1:20-22), mastered (Phil 2:9-11), rendered powerless (Heb 2:14) and his works have been destroyed (I John 3:8). I speak these truths into this stronghold in my life/family/loved one, Lord. I speak TRUTH where lies have prevailed.”
War Room Prayer #4:
“Christ is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else, not only in this world but also in the world to come.” He is the Supreme One, not this stronghold, not the lies this stronghold has been erected on, not the enemy who has waged war against me. Christ is far above.”
War Room Prayer #5:
“At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. I confess the Lordship of Christ. I renounce all other gods and ungodly deeds. I bow to the headship and authority of Jesus Christ alone.”
War Room Prayer #6:
“I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.” You are not willing to give me up to my spiritual enemies, Lord. You aren’t willing to let me go. You will fight for me and complete the victory in me.”
War Room Prayer #7:
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me. You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.” I trust in Your great love to uphold me, Lord. My battle is not over. I walk through treacherous ground yet I will trust You to save and deliver me. You will fight for me.”
War Room Prayer #8:
“Lead me not into temptation, Lord. Deliver me from evil for Yours is the kingdom and authority and glory and I desire to live for Your kingdom, not the enemy’s.
War Room Prayer #9:
II Thessalonians 3:3
“You are faithful, Lord, to strengthen and protect me from the evil one. I trust in Your faithfulness.”
War Room Prayer #10:
“Lord, You are able to keep me from stumbling. You will present me blameless in Your presence. It is upon this hope I cast myself and acknowledge Your authority, power, and majesty. To You be all the glory and honor. It is for these things- for Your glory and honor- that I ask Your mighty hand to bring about victory in my life.”
I hope these war room prayers help you develop your own war room prayer strategy and jumpstart your private prayer life. Enjoy!

For those who have read my book, you’ve read about my prayer closets – my war rooms.
As a newlywed, I felt a need to create a “prayer closet” so I turned a walk in closet into a prayer closet.
Matthew 6:6 says “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
In the closet, I put an inexpensive chair and footstool, a cheap night stand filled with journals, pens, my Bible and hymnal; a little water fountain and CD player in the corner, along with some photos of loved ones. This was the most inviting quiet time place I’ve ever had.
In our next home, I turned my vanity –in the master bathroom– into my sanctuary! With little ones totting around – I found it hard to find a quiet moment to read my Bible and pray. The bathroom seemed to be the only place I could truly be uninterrupted!
We took down the mirror, and I put up a dry erase board. Then, rather than using the drawers for makeup and accessories, I filled them with devotional books, highlighters, my Bible and planner, and set my computer on the counter top. This is where I first began blogging – from my bathroom – Lol! Actually – it was my war room. 😉
I have worked hard to create an escape from the distractions of life to be alone with God.
Do you have a place where you get alone to pray?
Maybe you have a chair in the family room or you prefer your kitchen table? Perhaps it’s your car or a bench at the park. In my college dorm, I would go to the stairwell or shower stall to get alone to pray.
It’s not as much about the place as it is about the prayer.
At times, my prayer life has felt like a wrestling match – with distracted thinking, interruptions from kids, or worse…drifting off to sleep. A thousand invisible enemies seem to fill the air the minute I sit down to pray. Anyone else relate?
This is war my friends.
I have written about one solution to this struggle…my prayer journals (you can read about them here) but let’s look at Acts 6-10 and the prayers of those in the early church.
Forty-eight times in the book of Acts, it says, “They prayed.”
The power of the early church came through prayer.
Acts 6:4 says, “But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”
Acts 6:6 says, “they prayed and laid their hands on them.”
Acts 7:59 says, “And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus,receive my spirit.”
Acts 9:11 says, “And the Lord said to him, “Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying.“
Acts 9:40 says, “But Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.”
Acts 10:1,2 says, “At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of what was known as the Italian Cohort, a devout man who feared God with all his household, gave alms generously to the people, and prayed continually to God.”
Acts 10:9 says “The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray.“
Acts 10:30 says “And Cornelius said, “Four days ago, about this hour, I was praying in my house at the ninth hour”
What about now?
What about you?
There’s no time for lukewarm Christianity!
We need prayer warriors NOW!
Prayer is a necessity!
We need women willing to pray fervently for their husband
willing to pray for their children
willing to pray for their grandchildren
willing to pray for their friends children
willing to pray for their co-workers, friends, relatives, neighborhoods, churches, communities, our sister’s and brother’s in Christ and the advancement of the gospel – around the world!
Stephen saw the heavens open and there was God in all His glory with Jesus giving him a standing ovation – that same God – is watching over you.
God hears your prayers.
God is ABLE!
“Prayer works. It always has. It always will.”
May we STOP neglecting the power of prayer in our lives and become prayer warriors.
Let’s create prayer closets and war rooms – in our closets – bathrooms – cars – wherever you can get alone!
Will you commit today to pray harder, longer, and more than you have been praying?
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
~ James 5:16
