Prophecy and prophetic ministry are complicated topics. This biblical gift is shunned by some and overemphasized by others.Where is the balance? And is a word from the Lord fulfilled automatically, or do you sometimes have to fight for it?

In this comprehensive, accessible guide, veteran prophetic warrior Barbara Wentroble lays the biblical foundation for prophetic ministry and shows how you can walk in biblical wisdom and avoid common pitfalls. God did not intend to communicate only through a select few. You can discover the incredible blessing that comes from receiving, releasing and actually fighting for a word from Him.


"There are two battles we face in every issue. One battle to take ground and another to hold it and occupy the territory (2 Samuel 5:17-25). We all know people who won the battle to get free but lost the battle to stay free. There is a call to fight upon everyone of us, and Barbara's book stirs up the warrior that is part of our prophetic identity. Prophets live in the grip of the one true, great territorial Spirit who marked out the land for each tribe to occupy (Judges 15-21). We love the land of the Spirit. We love battle. Barbara's book is for overcomers, warriors and giants: people who want to rise up and occupy till He comes. I heartily recommend it as an important resource in the development of people of substance."
--Graham Cooke, author, Prophetic Wisdom

"In Fighting for Your Prophetic Promises Barbara Wentroble brings a balanced yet powerful approach regarding hearing the voice of the Lord. This book will be an inspiration to those just beginning their journey into understanding the gifts of the Holy Spirit; it will also challenge those who have operated in the prophetic in past seasons to press into a fresh prophetic dimension in their lives. Readers will receive not only principles for information but also an anointing for impartation to fight to see God's prophetic purposes fulfilled in the earth."
--Jane Hamon, senior pastor, Christian International Family Church, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

"Barbara Wentroble has done a marvelous job of providing us with clear guidelines, admonitions, boundaries and, most of all, opportunities to experience the riches and graces of the Spirit's work in our lives, in terms of the many aspects of prophetic ministry. She has brilliantly covered all the ground where concerns have been raised. And without compromising the Scriptures or the intent of God, she has shown us the tremendous significance not only of the role of the prophetic in the twenty-first-century Church, but also of fighting and warring in prayer and declaration for the prophetic utterances, dreams and visions we have received on our journey. May Barbara's work, which you now hold in your hands, serve as the tool she and the Lord intend to keep you moving forward."
--Dr. Mark Chironna, Mark Chironna Ministries, The Master's Touch International Church, Orlando, Florida

"Barbara has penned a powerful tool for all who desire to move in the prophetic gifting and for those who also have received a prophetic word. Readers will be enriched and strengthened in the prophetic. My wife and I have been impacted personally by prophetic words Barbara has spoken over us. Now you as a reader can be impacted as you dive into this book. I highly recommend Fighting for Your Prophetic Promises."
--Keith Miller, Stand Firm World Ministries

"This book is more of an overview of prophetic ministry, covering such diverse topics as establishing prophetic doctrine, releasing prophecy in the marketplace and prophetic fulfillment in the nations. While not going into any great depth on each topic, the book is easy to read, provides plenty of practical advice and includes lots of personal examples."--Christian Marketplace
