Pray without ceasing.
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if, once and for all, you truly stayed in constant communication with God? Imagine how much of His power you've done without by avoiding Him here and there. Imagine what could happen now if you didn't just walk with Him on occasion but on the clock—day by day, moment by immeasurable moment?
Pastor Michael Catt, whose church launched the international hit films Facing the Giants and Fireproof, is often asked why God has blessed their efforts in such a remarkable way. His answer is simple: “We have a praying church that is walking in unity. We pray over every ministry and decision.”
Recognizing individuals and churches are often powerless because they are prayerless—and how some prayers equate to nothing more than “worrying on our knees”—Catt offers The Power of Persistence so that we can experience real breakthroughs in our prayer life.
The stories here from Scripture and the author's personal journeys attest to the prophetic and profitable work of prayer. Richly insightful chapters on prayers of penitence, learning from the psalmist, praying for others, and praying in response to spiritual warfare foster a life-changing level of intimacy with the God who is eager to hear our cries and accomplish His work through us.
