The last 40 years have been among the most spectacular in the Body of Christ in terms of new revelation. It has been a season for taking sound doctrine and making practical application in almost every sector of the culture.
We are immensely blessed to have lived in this season and to experience first hand the explosion of new methodologies for applying the truths of the Word of God to our world.
One area which has been massively impacted is our relationship with land. In a season when there is much discussion of the most recent revelations, it is well worth our time to go back to some of the early pioneers in this area. One who I personally admire very much for the quality of his life is Steve Hawthorne.
Steve and Graham Kendrick wrote the book “Prayer Walking: Praying on site with insight.” It is the well aged fruit of a life lived in the trenches. I have heard him share some of the stories of his beginning and have savored the beauty of a man who walked through a process, rather than receiving a sudden, full blown revelation.
Much of our praying tends to be like throwing mud on the wall, while hoping some of it sticks. Steve is a man after my own heart. He is a listening pray-er who knows what it means to be strategic. He has measurable, verifiable, sustained results to report.
If you have a call to land and are not familiar with this gem, I suggest you add it to your library. It is available through ArsenalBooks.com. Click here to read more.
