Foreword A great prayer movement began sweeping the world in 1970. It had been going on long before that in Korea; then God started bringing the rest of the Body of Christ on board. Pastors of all denominations in all parts of the U.S.A. are talking about prayer, teaching prayer and praying more than any other time in living memory. And the interest in prayer continues to increase. Many feel that we are now witnessing the precursor of the great revival, a worldwide outpouring of the Spirit of God on all flesh which will see vast multitudes turn to Jesus and glorify God.

I have now had the privilege of knowing Beth for some time, and I greatly admire her as a person of integrity and as a woman of God. Becoming a Prayer Warrior is the right book at the right time. The demand for a basic guidebook on all the facets of prayer is escalating rapidly because of all the Christian people who are tuning in to what the Spirit is saying to the churches about prayer these days. God is calling out a vast army of His people to pray, and they are saying, "Show me how!" I have found no better training manual than this book. It explains what prayer is,
