Moms today have a lot to handle! It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of raising a family, especially in a culture that’s spiraling away from Christianity at an alarming speed.

- A book every mom needs.
Prayers for the Battlefield is an honest, open book about the reality of parenting this special generation of kids. Each chapter covers a different challenge that modern Christian mothers face at every stage of parenting. Heidi St. John lays out her own experiences in a raw genuine way that you can relate to. It's like having a cup of coffee with her. Her honesty is refreshing. What sets this book apart from all the other books is that she adds to her life experiences Biblical Truth and encouragement. Prayer has become a lost art and Heidi sets such an amazing example of how to pray scripture for each specific situation. Refreshing drinks of water from the Word accompany her experiences and help moms rise to the challenges we face every day in parenting. I love that the book is broken up into bite-size categories, that means this isn't a book you will read once and stick on a bookshelf, it's a guide and resource you will keep turning to as the years of parenting go by. Every page is a reminder of why we are doing what we are doing. Heidi reminds us that we are on a battlefield for the hearts and minds of our kids and it is not just our job but our responsibility to point them to God. This book is a very powerful weapon in the arsenal of any godly woman! To sum it up it is a call to mothers to get off the bench and get active in the battle for this amazing generation.
- A book you want in your collection of resources
Prayers for the Battlefield by Heidi St. John is a book you want in your collection of resources. From angels to worry and everything in between, Heidi will teach you how to put on your armor and get in the spiritual battle through intentional prayer. Her authentic stories continue to make you feel like you're sitting down with a friend over a cup of coffee to talk about life and just be real. Those stories combined with her use of scripture in prayer teach you how to be just that real with God. Let's face it - it's easy to let ourselves get sidelined in the battle as the busy-ness of life jumps to the forefront and our Bibles and prayer life begin to gather dust. Not only does Prayers for the Battlefield remind us of how important it is to stay in the fight and in the Word, it teaches us how to do it and come out stronger and more faithful on the other side. It's time for all of us to get off the bench.
- Encouragement for the battle weary
This is an encouraging prayer guide for those who have influence in the life of a child....whether that child is a newborn or 40 years old. Prayers for the Battlefield is an easy to read devotional which helps focus your mind and steady your heart as you come before the throne with your petitions on behalf of yourself or your child. “The stakes are high; in fact, they’re eternal. Make no mistake: the enemy of your soul is playing for keeps....Beloved, there will be times when you speak truth to your children and they won’t listen. They may drift off to sleep while you pray over them, or they may roll their eyes at your attempts to train them in the ways of the Lord. But don’t give up! God is still at work. He loves you. You belong to Him. Like Esther, you were born for such a time as this-and so were your children.” I pray you’ll purchase this for yourself and for someone who could use encouragement while battling for the hearts and minds of their precious children.

- Encouraging & Empowering
This little book is a treasure for Christian Moms. Each brief chapter addresses a different type of prayer that would be helpful in different situations. When I read through the list of chapter titles, I thought, "Yep, that's me!". I've been the Weary Mom, the Brokenhearted Mom, the Mom that needs Supernatural Help and so many more. The prayers Heidi has written give words to the thoughts of my heart. Reading her words reminds me that we are in a spiritual battle. There is much as stake and Moms have a front row position in the lives of our families.
The book gives practical examples of how to pray scripture in different seasons of life and stages of raising children that honor the Lord. This beautiful book would make a great gift for the mothers.
I highly recommend this book! You should also check out her podcast The Busy Mom for more encouragement :)
- Your family is worth the battle!
Prayers for the Battlefield is YOUR guidebook to the bible for spiritual warfare that we are facing everyday. Do you feel worn out? Knocked down? Do you need encouragement? Do you feel powerless? Do you long for the truth? Are you facing the unexpected? Each day Christians are being attacked. Moms are being worn down because we are busier than ever before! In just a blink of an eye, we can lose our way. We can stray off God's path while running kids to sports, voice, tutoring and more! This book will remind you to use our tools -SCRIPTURE- to continue to be examples for our kids and train them with righteousness and fill their hearts with faith, truth, wisdom, love and endurance. This battle is not a sprint...it is a marathon and this book is a refreshment and encouragement along the journey. Heidi is raw, honest, loving and ALWAYS refers back to scripture. For someone who is not fluent in their bible, that is truly a blessing.
If you are looking to get back into the word or have never known where to begin, open this book up. There is a reason you are reading this! The prayers are beautiful. They are scripture filled and will bring you peace. You are not alone. Learn to let God fight your battles- GOD IS IN CONTROL- ask God for what you need and he will give it to you. This book has changed me. I have clung to it in some of my darkest moments these past few months. God knew I needed this book to be reminded that I am not alone in my struggles. That HE loves me and that our children are worth the battle! This book is a blessing. Heidi says, "Let God determine the outcome of the battles you're facing today-because the ultimate victory belongs to him." Thank you Heidi for sharing your story with us. This book is going to save many women from their own demise and learn to trust and look to Him for guidance and grace. YOU ARE WORTH IT MOMMA!
- An Absolute Must Read For All Moms!
As a prayer warrior, I have read countless books, by many Christian authors, on the subject of prayer. All were awesome, but none have touched me in such a personal and profound way as Heidi's book has. This book is different in that it teaches us how to pray the scriptures for whatever season of life we are in as mothers. I especially appreciate the fact that the prayers are geared toward, not only what season moms are in, but cover whatever difficulties she may be going through at that particular moment. Wisdom and prayers can be found for the overwhelmed mom, the mom who needs courage, the mom facing an unplanned pregnancy, the brokenhearted mom of a prodigal, and the mom who needs supernatural help- just to name a few. Heidi provides wisdom and encouragement from the Scriptures along with “weaponry” that we warrior moms so vitally need on this battlefield we call life. Heidi also so beautifully shares personal reflections from her heart about her life that had me crying from chapter to chapter. Her transparency is something to be admired and appreciated. Her devotion to God, her family, and to the moms of the world are so very evident throughout the pages of this book and you can feel that passion as well as her sense of urgency for we moms to "get off the bench" and on to the battlefield!
- Love, Love, Love! A reference guide on prayer that every mom in every season needs!
Heidi encourages you to see that we are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our children and future generations. This culture and the world we live in is fighting to pull them away from truth and the Lord. We need to get off the bench and into the battle for them. We need to be in the Word daily and praying daily! How can we give them what we don’t have?
Each section addresses a different topic that we all have or will struggle with (like: To the mom who is afraid, worried, wants to be a good example etc.) Heidi shares a verse and then a personal story or biblical explanation to go along with each topic. At the end there is a beautifully written prayer that incorporates lots of scripture. There are also more scripture references so you can dig deeper! I loved the prayers! They were great for a tired mama of 4 kiddos under 6 who struggles to find the words and scriptures to pray. I love that I can pick up the book, look up the topic I’m struggling with and find verses, encouragement and prayer in a couple of quick pages.
You can see Heidi’s heart and desire to equip moms to raise a Godly generation of children on these pages. Heidi’s words made me want to dive into scripture and prayer and ready myself to fight for my faith and my family!
- Amid the sea of fruitless, feel-good "fluff" in books for Christian women, this one tells the truth
Heidi's "handbook for battle" is a collection of Scripture-soaked prayers alongside biblical teaching and personal testimony, serving to remind us of who we are as daughters of the King of Heaven's Armies and to call us to action: get off the bench and onto the battlefield.
You will be both challenged and encouraged, finding yourself nodding in agreement as you are stirred to stand up and fight for your family and your faith. Each prayer beautifully echoes the heart's cry of a mother seeking to serve the Lord in her family and with the legacy they will leave for generations to come.
Relate-able would be an understatement for this book! It will not be one sitting alongside others I've already read, collecting dust on a shelf; it will be one I carry with me and draw encouragement from often. I cannot possibly recommend it enough!
- Awesome book of prayers and reflections
Do you need help praying for your family? Heidi has put together powerful prayers to help. In her new book, Prayers for the Battlefield she challenges us to get #offthebench. Our families need strong and fearless praying moms to counter the cultural norm, the status quo, the Anti Christ movement that our families face everyday.
I love Heidi's writing. It is simple to the point and filled with honest love for a lost world, family and for this generation. You will find yourself in this collection of prayers and reflections to help you stay in the battle.
Being a wife and mother are two of the greatest things in my life. This book will help you stay the course in prayer, whether you are a new mom or a grandma and everything in between. Heidi is committed to help us stay MomStrong with the Spirit filled prayers with scripture. The only way to pray in my humble opinion.
Prayers for the Battlefield is for every season of motherhood. As long as we have breath we have influence in our children's lives. Let's put on our armor and engage the enemy in the battle for future generations.
Rise up women of God, the King of heavens army has our backs. He will never leave us or forsake us. What legacy do you want to leave? Spirit filled scripture led prayer is a super natural.
Jesus says in John 14:12-14 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
Finally, be encouraged sisters, we can dance on the battlefield even in the trials of life because the victory is already won and belongs to the Lord.
I highly recommend this book and it will be living on my side table or bedside.
It makes a great gift and also great for a time of sharing with other ladies. Imagine praying these prayers in a group? #offthebench
