Travail to Prevail


This is one of the most unique and inspiring books ever written on prayer. In it Joseph Mattera uses the Bible, memoirs from powerful revivalists, and personal experience to shed light upon the most effective (but least understood) form of intercession. This book dispels the idea that mere perfunctory prayer is enough to birth revival. The writer also shows the lifestyle change and personal sacrifice needed if Christians are truly going to bring global societal transformation. There has never been another book like this in recent memory! This book is a must for all believers who yearn to see God answer their prayers and move powerfully in their midst!

Ten Reasons Many Contemporary Christian Worship Leaders Are Spiritually Bankrupt

The past several years there has been no shortage of prominent contemporary Christian leaders denouncing Christ either with their words or their actions.
