Book Review: 31 Days of Power

Sometimes little books like this one don’t get much notice, but 31 Days of Power is one that’s worth your time. It’s a positive, and comprehensive, approach to spiritual warfare. That is, we focus on God through prayer, praise, and Bible study. We live the way He directs us to, freed to ignore Satan knowing God IS the Victor. Then, as we pray, praise, and study, God helps us to proclaim what we learn to help Him lead others out of darkness and into His Light.

I like that. Focus on the positive. Ignore the darkness; God is in control.

Ruth Myers started studying spiritual warfare after the death of her first husband, then studied more intensely with her second husband as they served as missionaries in Asia. Through this book, she shares what she learned--and what she practices. The first section is a collection of 31 prayers based on Scripture. Following some, the reader is encouraged to journal her own specific prayers based on that day’s theme. The second, much shorter, section is five chapters of instruction, again based on Scripture, on the dynamics of spiritual warfare.

If this is a topic that interests you, I recommend this book. Thank you, Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers, for sending it for my review.
