What is the Fighter Verses Program?

The Fighter Verses Program is designed to encourage believers to fight the fight of faith through memorizing God’s Word. Each week individuals, families, and churches are all encouraged to memory a verse or short passage of Scripture together. We pray that God would instill your heart with the conviction and yearning to memorize His Word so that it becomes a life-long practice.

To help equip you to memorize, view our free Memory Aids and learn more about the various Fighter Verses Resources available from Children Desiring God.


Verse Collections

Fighter Verses Collection

The Fighter Verses Collection was the original compilation of verses introduced in 1997 and revised in 2011. This five-year memory program is broken down into five yearly sets with one verse or passage to be memorized each week. The verses chosen for this collection focus on 1) the character and worth of our great God, 2) battling against our fleshly desires, and 3) the hope of the Gospel.

Extended Memory Collection

The Extended Memory Collection is designed for those who wish to memorize longer passages of Scripture. Still structured as a five-year weekly memory program, this collection includes a set for Philippians, James, Romans 5-8, and the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), plus an additional set of larger passages from various books of the Bible that are considered key to the life of faith.

Foundation Verse Collection

The Foundation Verses are 76 verses of foundational truth designed with toddlers and pre-readers in mind. The collection includes verses designed to lay a firm scriptural foundation of basic biblical truth that will pave the way for faith response along with illustrations to help children remember each verse.

Bible Translations

All of the Fighter Verses resources are available in our main Bible translation, The English Standard Version (ESV). The ESV version is what you see here at FighterVerses.com, used in our songs, and available in all of our printed resources.

Some of the printed Fighter Verses materials are also available in the New International Version (NIV). Due to copyright requirements, all NIV verses were updated to the NIV (2011) version at the end of 2015.

The Fighter Verses App allows you to choose from a wide range of Bible translations, including: English Standard Version (ESV), New International Version 2011 (NIV), New American Standard Bible (NASB), Holman Christian Standard (HCSB) and King James Version (KJV).

Spanish translations on the Fighter Verses App include: La Biblia de las Américas (LBLA) and Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR additional cost).
