What is a War Room?
A faith war room is based on the movie with Priscilla Shirer called War Room. In the movie, she goes to her place of prayer to pray over her marriage and troubles.
Keep in mind that you do not have to have a fancy prayer closet to have a war room. The key is that you find a quiet place to praise our Creator.
A war room might be an extra bedroom that you have in your home, or it could be just a corner of your bedroom. If you have a closet, you can, of course, turn that into a war room.
When hoping to make this special time with God, the most important aspect is your heart! Listen for God to speak to you in different ways each day.
Learn more about how to listen to God and how to create your own prayer closet. If you are searching for a way to connect with God on a daily basis, be sure to check out our Psalms Bible Study, which will walk you through exactly how to build your quiet time with God.
A war room is a special place for you to have private, one-on-one time with God!
Why Pray War Room Prayers?
When we pray war room prayers, we connect with God. We are building a relationship with Him. This is a critical step in your spiritual life and growth as a Christian. Prayer should be an element you hold dear to your heart.
If you do not know how to pray, remember that there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do it – provided you have a pure heart and intentions. Be yourself – that is the person God created, and He’ll love you – no matter what.
When we pray war room prayers, we are typically pouring out our hearts on a particular subject. If your marriage is in jeopardy, you can use this time to pray fervently. That just means that you are passionate about your reason for prayer.
Not all prayers need to be passionate or fervently prayed. There will be lulls and struggles in your spiritual life, but if you can persevere, you’ll see eternal rewards in your future. Hold on to hope of everlasting life with a God who loves you dearly!
God hears our prayers (1 John 5:14-15) when we pray war room prayers. He hears us whenever we pray about anything under the sun. You are a child of the Creator, and He longs to hear from you. It doesn’t matter if it’s an itch or a difficult situation; He will listen.
So, when it comes time to pray war room prayers, are you ready to listen to God? He will answer you in one way or another. Make sure you stay tuned to the answers from our Creator after you pray war room prayers. Do not ever think there is no point in praying; God is present!
How to Pray War Room Scriptures
If you want to know how to pray in your war room, let’s look at some different ways to do this. In my experience, when you pray in your war room (extra bedroom, closet, or other areas), you are “going to war” with the enemy.
This could mean opening your prayer binder and/or Bible and letting the Spirit guide you as you focus on a pressing issue. It could also entail Bible journaling on a scripture that is weighing heavily on your heart and mind.
If you want to use the printable war prayers and scriptures provided in this article under the resources section, cut them out and place them on the wall of your prayer closet. Just say those prayers out loud or use one of the blank cards to write your own prayers.
When praying the scriptures, you might want to have your Bible open. That way, you can look them up in a different translation – one that you find to be easier to read, for example. You could also color-code your Bible in a way that highlights this scripture and what it means to you.
The most important reason you need to know how to pray war room scriptures is so that you can prepare your heart. If you just enter into prayer with the wrong attitude or because you feel guilty or obligated, your prayer life will suffer. Instead, be open-minded and truthful.
I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. – Psalm 41:11
Top War Room Prayers
Use these war room prayers as you fervently pray about a matter. You can take them and customize them for use during your personal time with God.
