Psalms Warfare of Prayers: The Lord is Mighty in Battle by Mina Petersen is a collection of spiritually empowering readings filled with the comfort of some of the Psalms. This book contains thirty chapters. In addition, there are two beautiful illustrations. The first drawing invites readers right into Psalm 23 in a way that I won’t spoil by revealing. The second drawing captures well the desperation of those who read the related Psalm, seeking to become aware of just how protected and watched over they are.

One of the most blessed aspects and truly moving inclusions in this work is the Introduction on Prayer that is a personal and heartfelt appeal to the Holy Spirit. It is written in the first person so that readers, when saying these words aloud or silently, are calling upon the Holy Spirit for themselves. They will feel the sincerity of this appeal in their own spirit. They might even experience the rushing wind as they invite the Holy Spirit to flow through them. This wonderful request is accompanied by a drawing of the White Dove, symbolic of the Holy Spirit and of the beautiful place in the Bible that describes how Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon him.

In this beautiful book, Psalms Warfare of Prayers: The Lord is Mighty in Battle, Mina Petersen has truly given readers a collection of prayers to help them always know that the Lord is mighty in battle and right there to aid them through the power of the Word. Each chapter has a title. Readers seeking the strength and deliverance so freely offered by the Psalms have but to read the title headings and allow themselves to be drawn by God’s Spirit to exactly which chapter or chapters can help bring them the spiritual victory they seek. I am glad to have read this book.

Psalms Warfare of Prayers: The Lord Is Mighty in Battle by Mina Petersen explores different chapters of the biblical book of Psalms and includes life-changing prayers. The book begins with a heartfelt prayer to the Holy Spirit. The prayer is an invitation for the Holy Spirit to move into one’s life and empower it with kindness, healing, love, comfort, and fruitfulness. It is also a prayer for wisdom to focus on the things that are of Christ and that are set above. The first section explores Psalms 30 which exalts God as a source of strength and joy. It also includes a prayer for deliverance. The chapter expresses faith in God as a solid rock that stands on firm ground. Other sections express faith in God as a redeemer, a shield, as the creator of salvation, and as the eternal Father.

Psalms Warfare of Prayers brings together multiple prayers that are helpful during difficult times. They are moving and they capture the narrator’s sorrow. I loved that they also show prayer as an expression and conversation with God about real and devastating events. Every chapter also explores the character of God. In Psalms 30, the prayer begins by stating that God is the source of strength while in Psalms 34, the Psalmist states that God is a rescuer. The chapters are also expressions of praise to God. Psalms Warfare of Prayers by Mina Petersen explores the chapters in Psalms that are about spiritual warfare. They are a powerful reminder of God’s steadfastness during times of trouble and grief.

Did you know that we are continually being faced with spiritual battles? Some battles are seen while others are unseen. I enjoyed this book because the author not only used various scriptures in the Book of Psalms to help the reader but provided words of affirmation that the reader can use connected with the scriptures. "I am going through spiritual battles of struggle in the storms of life, feeling so distressed and overwhelmed. Psalms is the book I read to feel comfort and to feel the love of God speaking into my heart through the power of His Holy Spirit," says Mina Petersen. This statement helps to set the stage for the reader as to why a book of this magnitude is essential. As believers, we are made aware that all things work together for both good and bad. God has a message in place. Like David, we need to keep our heads lifted up and know that He's carrying us through. Highly recommended.

Psalms Warfare of Prayers: The Lord Is Mighty in Battle by Mina Petersen is a slim, inspirational book that unveils the power of praying with the psalms. In this book, the reader encounters the God who fights their battles, and the words of the psalmist, coupled with the intuition and words of the author, give tools to the reader in moments of trial and pain. This is not a book to read for entertainment. It should be received as a spiritual gift, a tool to use to grow closer to God in difficult times, and a weapon to combat the snares of the evil one. These are psalms that are specifically selected for a unique theme; they are prayers to use in a spiritual battle.

The book features a collection of thirty psalms, starting with the prayer for joy and leading the reader through a spiritual journey that discovers God as the “bread which fills” the soul. This book is a powerful instrument to connect with the God who “defeated my enemies,” the one worthy of all trust, and He who causes the believer to rejoice in victory. Themes of God’s forgiveness, God’s power, deliverance, Divine presence, Divine light, and others are recurrent in the selected psalms. Psalms Warfare of Prayers: The Lord Is Mighty in Battle should be used when tempted, when feeling disconnected from God, and when traversing challenging times. It is a compendium of psalms that restores faith in God’s benevolence, uplifts the heart in dire moments, and inspires hope in God’s unfailing promise. It will inspire you, give you the right words to pray, and fill you with a consoling sense of God’s presence.
