Share Your Story and Give God Praise

What did God do through your fasting and prayer? If He worked in your life in any way, take a moment to share your story. It will put God on display—and bless and encourage others! Anything God did is testimony-worthy! Although dramatic accounts are wonderful, they’re not the only kind that demonstrate God’s goodness and faithfulness. Anything God did in your life—large or small—is... read more

Lord, Thank You for the Overflow

By God’s grace, you did it! You made it through all twenty-one days of the fast! You sought God intensely these three weeks, and as a result, you’ve been living in the overflow of His anointing, His strength, His grace, His enabling. You’ve abstained not just from food but from anything that has hindered prayer. Consequently, you’ve experienced God’s presence in a fresh... read more

Joining Jesus at the Throne of Intercession: Reigning Through Prayer (Part 2)

In Part One, we saw that Jesus is the Interceding Sovereign of the universe. Seated at the throne, ruling the universe, He lives to make intercession for us. Today we see that we join Him in this rule—that through prayer we reign with Him. This article is based on a chapter in Mighty Prevailing Prayer by Wesley Duewel. I highly recommend you get a copy! Mine is highlighted and bookmarked throughout.... read more

The Touch of God – Moses: Sermon by David Wilkerson

Do you want to be a man or woman whom God has touched? When God gives you an urge to seek Him, it means He wants to touch your life. If you’re fasting with Pursuit 21, you no doubt have felt an urge to begin seeking God. So He clearly wants to touch your life. But in order to become a God-touched man or woman, you must first respond to two calls from Him—the call to come up and the call to... read more

Prayer Is an Invitation to Experience God’s Boundlessness

Are you experiencing great and mighty, incomprehensible things day in and day out? Or ordinary, explainable things? God invites us to prayer so that we might experience its boundless reach — His boundless reach! In the boundless reach of prayer, we experience unexplainable, extraordinary, great and mighty things! One of my favorite books on prayer is Prayer: Life’s Limitless Reach by Jack... read more

Satan Trembles When He Sees the Weakest Saint Praying

Do you feel inadequate in prayer? Do you look at godly men and women in history and feel small—microscopic—in comparison? Are you hesitant to pray because you feel you’re no Andrew Murray or E.M. Bounds? Satan trembles when he sees even the weakest saint upon his or her knees! Why? Because what God can do, prayer can do! The power of prayer is not in the one who prays but the One who... read more

Lord, What Do You Want to Say?

I can hardly believe that we’re in the last week of Pursuit 21. This wonderful experience will be over before you know it. So in these last six days, let’s take a moment to ask God this question. “Lord, what do You want to say to me during this fast?” Your prayers during the fast have no doubt included much that you wanted to say to God. But have you asked Him what He wants... read more
