THE PRAYER WARRIOR
BY D. TINA BATTEN AND TRACI WOODEN-CARLISLE

There is a thin line between reality and the spiritual realm.

Ms. V., a humble servant of the Lord, has been placed on assignment at Center of Hope Christian Academy.

By day, she serves as a trusted counselor for students, giving them a safe haven to pour out their innermost feelings while providing professional and honest truth wrapped in a firm kindness and love that inevitably draws them closer to Jesus. Not to be outdone, the faculty also bends her ear from time to time.

By night, Ms. V. enters the spiritual realm and takes her place on the battlefield as one of God’s faithful prayer warriors. She wields her whispering sword, slicing through the enemy’s plans to bind the precious hearts under her charge.

Her assignment’s burden on her physical body is taxing, but can she withstand the strain and remain victorious?

Saving souls is her true mission, but at what cost?

Readers are in for a journey of spiritual intrigue and biblical insight as they experience the ramifications of each character’s life-altering decision.

Behind the Veil

Reviewed in the United States on June 9, 2023

Welcome to Center of Hope Christian Academy. It’s a school rich in options: wood, photo, auto shops, and lots of sports. College-prep academics complete the image, a setting ripe for modern writing of peer rejection and teen hormones.

However, this is not a story about cool kids and rejection, nor competition and ambition, like so many today. This is a story of the heart, of choice, of commitment, seen through the eyes of the prayer warrior school counsellor, Ms V. She’s not the face of the perfect Christian. She had a bad marriage, a rough divorce, and is a solitary soul with one real friend. But she’s on a mission for God, and she draws us into it.

We get to know and care about the children and adults who come to Ms V. We see through her eyes how forces of darkness are seeking to derail each one.

And we enter the spiritual battlefield with this woman as she raises the sword of God against the powers of darkness, with stirring Scripture and prayers. And we get to choose the ending we prefer!

This is a memorable read. I loved how the authors drew our attention away from the superficial, where judgment casts its gavel with such ease. She directs us to the spirit, where God’s heart for redemption lives.

This is an engaging, positive Christian Novel

I enjoyed the audio version through NetGalley. My rating 4.5.

Ms. V is a devout Christian who serves as a counselor at the Center of Hope Christian Academy. She clearly cares about the teens she works with, listening to their problems, observing behaviors in classes and on campus, providing sound guidance, and covering all the situations with prayer.

At night, Ms. V steps into the spiritual realm with a warrior’s sword and the word of God to battle the enemy that wants to steal the hearts of her students. The spiritual battles are taxing on Ms. V, but she is willing to stand firm as long as God calls her to save souls.

The story opens with the images of the spiritual battles which caught my attention. Then the story moves into Ms. V’s interaction with the students and her co-workers. We meet a good handful of young people struggling with teenage issues including sexual pressures, predatory situations (even in the church), and bullying. There is also a co-worker who is dealing with bitterness and jealousy whose attitude is eventually changed. Ms. V shows consistent and unconditional love to everyone she is in touch with. Her behavior reveals a beautiful character and wonderful legacy all because she is willing to humbly serve her faithful God.

The story is very upbeat and endearing. The writing is direct and an easy read (and listen) for adults and teens. I am sort of curious about the alternate endings in the digital and print versions. I recommend this to any Christian who is looking for an inspirational story. I also recommend it to non-believers who are open minded to such inspiration.

Audio Notes: Anita Faye Thomas does a lovely job with the narration. She brings Ms. V alive and helps draw the listener into the spiritual and physical lives of the characters. I am glad I had the opportunity to listen to this.

An Excellent, Impactful Book

Reviewed in the United States on January 1, 2023

This was a really good book. I had never heard of either author, but the blurb was intriguing, and I thought it was appropriate for the season of life in which I find myself. I found the characters likable and relatable, and I was invested in the outcome. Everything was not 100% clear for me, but that was okay. The audio book narrator did an excellent job of interpreting the story. If this were a series, I would seek out the other books/audio books. Great job!

Not by might, not by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

This is a wonderful story of being strong in your faith. Ms V was a prayer warrior devoted to the Lord and even to her friends. It is an inspiring story of maintaining that strength during hard times, and inspiring others to deepen their faith and take up the Lord's work. The writing was beautifully descriptive and the ending was lovely in Ms V's acceptance and embracing where she was at. She was truly at peace. A well written story.

 Be Faithful and Be Determined

Reviewed in the United States on March 25, 2021

I absolutely LOVE this book, loved the story, loved the characters and loved the message. In a world that is so hard and so devastating especially for young people, this book just gives me hope. Just knowing there are people in this world who actually are prayer warriors and they won’t give up. That is exactly what kind of person Mrs. V is, she is a Prayer Warrior. Follow Mrs. V on her journey as she fights for those in need, those who struggle, those with fear and those with secrets. I enjoyed the atmosphere, and could see each battle being fought while reading. This book is heartwarming, inspirational, full of faith and a absolute treasure. I would highly recommend this book and repeat Mrs. V by saying “blessings be upon you.”

This is a Must Read book!
