John Bornschein published A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle in Get Involved 2023-08-24 10:44:10 -0600
It's a critical hour. The church is in need of an awakening, and our nation is desperate for spiritual revival. God has provided us with a powerful tool—one that enables us to draw closer to Him, gain wisdom and understanding, and even change the world. Yet we often lump prayer into the intangible, view it as a last resort, or shove it to the bottom of our to-do lists. Why?
A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle, edited by Pastor John Bornschein, former vice chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, is a field manual for exploring the depth and power of a praying life. Drawing on rich military metaphors, this book explores prayer from every angle—from its basic elements to the obstacles that hold people back. With inspirational stories, tools, and resources, this guide enables recruits and seasoned prayer warriors alike to gain a greater understanding of the number one weapon in spiritual warfare: prayer.

"If there was ever a day when God's people needed to grab ahold of God and to invite His manifest presence back into our midst, today is that day! In every direction we look in our culture, chaos has taken control. And when God is dismissed from a culture, that vacuum is filled by evil. Therefore, it is incumbent upon God's people, through whom He has determined to express His presence, to make contact with Him, in unity, in one accord. So: I'd encourage you and your church to get involved, read this book, and make your voices heard on earth, inviting heaven into our midst, to turn around a culture in chaos."
—Dr. Tony Evans, founder and president of The Urban Alternative
"John Bornschein's new book brings to light the true power that is in the hands of the followers of Jesus Christ when those hands are clasped in earnest, interceding prayer. A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle will help you better understand both why and how you can prevail in prayer over your family and even this nation. I am confident that this great book by a true national prayer leader will kindle prayer fires in you that God can use to deliver men and nations!"
—Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council
"Faith has always been the golden strand that binds Americans together—faith not only in the promises and benefits of freedom, but ultimately, in the grace and benevolence of the Creator whose hand has sustained and upheld this country throughout its history. Our world is in desperate need of people of prayer—individuals who will cry out to God day and night for transformation of the hearts and minds of all men. A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle is the kindling for a spiritual fire of the soul to go deeper with God in solemn assembly."
—David Barton, founder and president of WallBuilders
"A Prayer Warrior's Guide to Spiritual Battle is a great resource for those who want to better understand how to effectively engage in spiritual warfare on the front lines in our culture. The insights and practical truths on prayer will encourage all."
—David Kubal, president of Intercessors for America

This Guide dives deep in content but remains accessible and practical.

"I cannot think of a more significant focus than the one this book addresses. We are in the greatest spiritual battle of our lifetimes. What a blessing to have these seasoned prayer leaders offer their insights as to how we can be prayer warriors used of God to help win the battle!"

The Bible is the greatest book ever written and compiled for humankind. It is the Word of God, given to man, to navigate life according to its precepts and His instructions.
The Bible was penned by more than 40 contributing authors over a period of more than 1,500 years. Its pages are filled with history, poetry, wisdom and prophecy. Within its depths and vaults of knowledge, the purpose and meaning of life is revealed. The Bible has changed the world, forever.
John Bornschein has developed this companion piece, “History of the Bible," to expand your understanding of the origins of the Bible, its history, and how it was canonized. This book will deepen your faith to trust that God has given us His written Word. It is complete and every word is true. This compilation is the result of years of research featuring content from some of the most studied theologians and historians. With 41,947 words, 12 chapters, 200 pages and over 75 images and illustrations, this resource will thoroughly equip you with an in-depth study of how the modern Bible came to be.

The Book of Revelation is filled with mystery and judgment, tragedy and triumph. It is the revelation of Jesus Christ and the final entry into the canonized text of the Holy Bible. It is the capstone of eighteen prophetic books giving its reader a detailed account of the end of days in preparation for the second coming of the King of kings, the Lion of Judah.
Revelation is a book that has been called everything from a metaphor to a masterpiece. Because it contains a large amount of symbolism and because of the faulty approaches or methods of interpretation applied to its study, many have a difficult time grasping its meaning. It has become a book which is the object of the widest possible divergence amongst scholars. Yet, when studied alongside Old Testament prophecy, the pages come to life with vivid imagery.
God promises blessing to the student of this book (Revelation 1:3). In fact, Revelation is a book in which all the great themes, seed plots, lines of doctrine, and Bible prophecy find their fulfillment. It is in this book that the victory of God as the God of history is seen in the culmination of the ages and the establishment of the eternal state.
“Revelation: Unraveling the Mysteries” is a verse-by-verse expositional analysis of the Book of Revelation, in which Pastor John Bornschein helps us examine many topical subjects including the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the clues for identifying Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Antichrist, False Prophet, Mark of the Beast, the Rapture, the Millennium, with an in-depth look into the heavenly realm of Angels, Cherubs, Seraphs and the Four Living Creatures. Pastor Bornschein also addresses the increased tensions in the Middle East with a strong thesis for the rising Neo-Ottoman Empire.
This compilation of our 18-month study here at Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley is the result of more than 3 years of research, featuring content from some of the most studied theologians on End-Time Prophecy. With 278,818 words, 31 chapters, 736 pages and over 4,309 cross references to 65 books of the Bible, this resource will thoroughly equip you with an in-depth study of eschatology, and give you biblical and historical insight into some of the most challenging end time prophecies to help you examine the evidence for yourself.Original Publication Date: August 27, 2020Book Size: 6" x 9"Pages: 736First-Print ISBN: 9781645509387
Revisions to the first-print edition of Revelation are currently underway. The second-print release is estimated to be in December 2023.

MEN’S MINISTRY: The Men’s Group, titled, Men of Honor, meets Thursday Mornings at 9:00 a.m. and is led by Bill McLaughlin. It is time to experience Iron sharpening Iron as men grow together in truth and understanding to become stronger men of faith – husbands, spiritual leaders and change agents in their spheres of influence.
WOMEN’S MINISTRY:The women’s ministry, led by Kimberly Valere, meets throughout the month for various activities. These are exciting gatherings you won’t want to miss. Please join us as we grow and learn of God’s love for women. Look for upcoming gatherings in the weekly bulletin or on the upcoming events calendar. If you would like to participate in the Wednesday Morning Fellowship Groups (9:30 - 11:00 a.m.), you can easily sign-up by contacting the church at 719.382.3711.
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY: CFFV KIDS (known as SPARK) is a Sunday morning environment for elementary-aged kids (K – 5th grade) that includes an engaging large group gathering for worship and teaching, alongside a more personal small group time with adult leaders. Led by Stacey Wilson and a team of qualified volunteers.
SENIOR ADULT MINISTRY: Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley is pleased to have a thriving Over 50 Youth Group. That's right, the Fanner Bees is a ministry for individuals over the age of 50 but that doesn't mean they don't have fun. Rather, this is one of the most vibrant groups in the church. They meet monthly at various restaurants for fellowship and even play putt-putt golf and go bowling together. In addition, they support many of the ministries in town with outreach projects (including Compassion Sunday). If you want to get involved, just contact Ken and Karen Lippincott at 719.651.3018.
FAMILY MINISTRY: The Family Worship Service is only the beginning to help educate, equip and encourage parents to pass their faith to the next generation. We believe that the primary responsibility to pass the faith to our children lays with parents not the church. This is accomplished through an integrated home-centered, church-supported strategy. Calvary Fellowship offers church based, multi-media, teaching seminars as well as a one-of-a-kind Family Worship Experience that is unique to Colorado Springs. Imagine coming to services and experiencing a full theatrical presentation from Junior and Senior High Students, action packed and Scripturally-based. Then receive a special take-home kit complete with CDs, snacks, meal-time discussion cards and more.
YOUTH MINISTRY: Flashpoint is the Junior High and High School student ministry of Calvary Fellowship Fountain Valley. It exists to train and equip young adults to become Christ–like leaders, preparing them to make disciples of Jesus locally and abroad.
At Flashpoint, students are trained and mentored to become God–honoring, Christ–following leaders in life and in ministry. Every student has an opportunity to serve in a Flashpoint ministry area, and potentially take on a leadership role.
Qualified, accountable and caring adult leaders work with each student as he or she is taken through the IGNITE and FUEL discipleship and training tracks. In these tracks, students experience personal and spiritual growth as they are taken through intense discipleship courses that include bible study, prayer and worship. Students are also prepared as servant leaders and receive hands–on ministry training. Once students demonstrate readiness, they are UNLEASHED to serve in ministry areas. Click here to learn more >>
