Love Bigger Than You Realize
by Becky Stevens on October 3rd, 2023
If you lose contact with the love of God, your prayer life will shrivel up like a dead frog on an expressway. The fastest way to revive your prayer life is to begin your time of Christ-encountering prayer each day by receiving a fresh infilling of His overwhelming love for you.
by Becky Stevens on October 2nd, 2023
Too many people have turned their prayer lives into an anxiety session. They pray themselves into a nervous frenzy. They are more upset and worried about life after they are finished praying than when they started. This is messed up.
by Becky Stevens on October 1st, 2023
If your prayer life has become dry and boring, I can almost guarantee why. Most likely, you have made your prayer time more about your love for Him than about His love for you. It’s time to reverse your focus.
He Loved First
by Becky Stevens on September 30th, 2023
Let’s not make prayer too complicated. The greatest commandment is love. God is love. What motivates all true prayer is love
An Hour of Prayer
by Becky Stevens on September 30th, 2023
Christ invites you to frequently spend an hour with Him in prayer just as He invited His disciples. Why? Very simply, because He loves you and He wants to spend time with you.
Wales on Fire
by Becky Stevens on September 29th, 2023
On this day, September 29, in the year of our Lord 1903, the Welsh Revival broke out. It was a sustained move of God that lasted more than 24 months.

When you love Jesus, it is easy to rejoice always. Jesus is your life, your joy, your fulfillment, your hope, and your purpose in life. We need the reminder to rejoice always.
by Becky Stevens on September 27th, 2023
There may not be a verse in the entire Bible from which we think we are somehow more exempt more than this one—pray without ceasing.
Bigger Than the Family Business
by Becky Stevens on September 26th, 2023
Simon and Andrew enjoyed their careers as fishermen in the family business. They were ready to walk in their father’s footsteps until they chose the footsteps of Jesus. The two words Follow Me changed everything. They went from cleaning fish to changing lives.
Pray Also For Me
by Becky Stevens on September 25th, 2023
On this day, September 25, in the Year of our Lord 1949, Armin Gesswein facilitated a prayer meeting with two thousand people praying in a tent on one side of the street while Billy Graham preached his Los Angeles Crusade to ten thousand people on the other side of the street.
What Gets You Excited?
by Becky Stevens on September 24th, 2023
As people who enjoy serving Christ, it is always beneficial to make sure what juices us the most is not what we do for God, but what He does through us.
by Becky Stevens on September 23rd, 2023
On this day, September 23, in the year of our Lord 1857, Jeremiah Lanphier knelt in prayer all by himself in the upper lecture room of Old North Dutch Reform Church in New York City, New York. He had rigorously distributed handfuls of invitations to this noon time one-hour business person’s prayer meeting. For the first thirty minutes, he prayed alone. A lesser man would have quit. Then someone joined him, and then another.
Raymond Edman Meets Christ
by Becky Stevens on September 22nd, 2023
On this day, September 22, in the year of our Lord 1967, Raymond Edman, beloved President of Wheaton College stood before the student body to give what would be his last chapel address and his final moment on earth. Dr. Edman was preaching about being in the presence of the King.
by Becky Stevens on September 21st, 2023
Tomorrow is the birthday of the College of Prayer International. On September 22, in the year of our Lord, 1997, the College of Prayer was born. 120 students gathered at Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa, Georgia for four days of encountering the manifest presence of Christ.

What makes the ground on which you stand holy is not your feet, nor socks, nor shoes; what makes the ground holy is the manifest presence of God.
Orphanage on Fire
by Becky Stevens on September 19th, 2023
On this day, September 19, in the year of our Lord 1906, the Holy Spirit of God swept through an orphanage in Khamgaon, India. God’s presence was so strong that the children stood for an extended time of silence, hands lifted up prayerfully to the Lord.
Ask for the Spirit
by Becky Stevens on September 18th, 2023
When you pray, no matter what else you ask for, you always want to ask for the Holy Spirit.
How Much More?
by Becky Stevens on September 17th, 2023
The size of your prayer life is largely determined by your hunger for God. You know God, but the big question is how much more do you want to know God? Since God is unlimited and He wants to make Himself known to you, the only limit to how much of God you have is how much you hunger to have.
by Becky Stevens on September 16th, 2023
All prayer is moving toward the ultimate vortex of the manifest presence of Christ—we want to know Christ better and better and better.
Hearing His Voice
by Becky Stevens on September 15th, 2023
Imagine hearing God’s voice today. Whenever the Bible says today it is always good to pay special attention. God may be talking to you. If so, He wants your undivided attention.
by Becky Stevens on September 14th, 2023
This is a most encouraging Bible verse that tells us two vital truths -- one about God and one about us.
by Becky Stevens on September 13th, 2023
You may only have one heart, but that one heart has who-knows-how-many eyes!
Taste and See
by Becky Stevens on September 12th, 2023
God made taste buds so that we can enjoy eating. Though some of us may overindulge, it is safe to say that healthy people are hungry people. The same is true spiritually.
by Becky Stevens on September 11th, 2023
For every receptor you have in your physical body, God can activate a parallel receptor in your spirit. Just as you have physical sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch so that you can know, appreciate and experience the physical universe, you also have spiritual sight, hearing, taste, and touch so that you can experience similar realities in the spiritual realm.
by Becky Stevens on September 10th, 2023
When you first encounter the manifest presence of Christ, it can be overwhelming. It can even make you feel awkward—almost out of place. For this reason, the writer of the book of Hebrews exhorts you to come boldly into His manifest presence, or to come with confidence.
by Becky Stevens on September 9th, 2023
We don’t need more prayer meetings; we need more receiving meetings. Asking is what we do in prayer; receiving is what God makes possible. Since what God does in prayer is more important than what we do, receiving is where we want to put our focus when we come before God.
It All Goes Back to Him
by Becky Stevens on September 8th, 2023
The entire Lord’s prayer pattern involves receiving. We receive the Father’s love, the revelation of His Name, His kingdom, food and forgiveness, forgiveness to give others, and victory over sin and satan
Your Two Enemies
by Becky Stevens on September 7th, 2023
Every day you get out of bed, you face two enemies—sin and satan. Toward the culmination of our Lord’s carefully crafted prayer pattern, He strategically places a prayer that deals with both the enemy on the inside (sin), and the enemy on the outside (satan).
by Becky Stevens on September 6th, 2023
The greatest power on earth is the power of forgiveness. Nothing makes you Christ-like faster than forgiveness. Nothing opens the floodgates into the manifest presence of Christ faster than the choice to forgive others. Is there anyone you have not yet forgiven?
by Becky Stevens on September 5th, 2023
As a child of the Father, it is your privilege to come to your Daddy each day and receive everything you need to meet your two daily needs—food and forgiveness. Like a good father, God loves to bring in the groceries—Give us today our daily bread—and to take out the garbage—forgive us our debts.
by Becky Stevens on September 4th, 2023
As mind-boggling as it sounds, Christ has assigned to you the responsibility of advancing His kingdom by prayer. In His strategically crafted prayer pattern, once He leads you to encounter the Father’s ferocious love—Our Father in heaven—and to declare the supremacy of His Name—Hallowed be Your Name, then He gives you the nobility as His redeemed children to declare the advancing of His kingdom—Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!
Holy is His Name
by Becky Stevens on September 3rd, 2023
Declaring the supremacy of Christ’s name in prayer clears the atmosphere from the distracting noise of everyday life and from the static of demonic interference. Christ sculpted His life-giving, God-encountering apostolic prayer pattern strategically. Once He leads us to the headwaters of the Father’s love—Our Father in heaven, He immediately calls us to declare the supremacy of His Name—Hallowed by Your Name!
The Father’s Love
by Becky Stevens on September 2nd, 2023
All true prayer rises out of a fresh encounter with the love of God in Jesus Christ; everything else is little more than hollow religious talk. For this reason, when Jesus crafted His prayer pattern, He starts with the four key words, Our Father in heaven.
by Becky Stevens on September 1st, 2023
Your local church exists for one primary purpose—to hold out the flame of Christ’s manifest presence. This is the single mark that distinguishes the church from every other organization on earth.
Don’t Play with Fire
by Becky Stevens on August 31st, 2023
The fire of God’s manifest presence is not the latest fad or some toy with which to play. God does not strut His miracles in front of the church like a three ring circus. On the contrary, God always prepares us in advance so that we appropriately humble ourselves under the weight of His glory.
Cloud on Fire
by Becky Stevens on August 30th, 2023
All Israel met God in the fire. They were led through the wilderness by the pillar of cloud each day and by the pillar of fire each night (Exodus 13:17-22).
Fire on Each One
by Becky Stevens on August 29th, 2023
The entire early church met God in the fire. There were no exceptions. On the day of Pentecost, the Bible explicitly says, “Fire appeared on them and rested on each one of them” (Acts 2:3). The next sentence goes on to unpack what the manifestation of fire was all about, “They were all filled with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:4). No exceptions.
Baptized With Fire
by Becky Stevens on August 28th, 2023
Christ is the manifest presence of God. When John the Baptist declared that Christ would one day baptize people in the Holy Spirit and fire, he put his finger on both the role of Christ and the role of the Holy Spirit.
With or Without Fire
by Becky Stevens on August 27th, 2023
Abraham met God in the fire. In a vision God showed Abraham a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch. On that day He sealed the covenant He had made with Abraham with fire.
Lips on Fire
by Becky Stevens on August 26th, 2023
When you encounter the manifest presence of Christ, you are shaken to the core. When the prophet Isaiah met God in the fire, he was shaken to the core in one of the most dramatic fire-encounters in the Bible (Isaiah 6).
