Where to Purchase


Confusion, financial constraints, job losses, global aggression--this is, at the very least, a day of uncertainty. The status quo is shaken, and we are in a time of tumultuous change, both in the world and in the Church.

Bestselling author and respected pastor Barbara Yoder offers hope and encouragement to everyone who wants to face the future with joy. Devastating personal circumstances cause God's people to cry out to him, she explains, and that is just what he desires. By showing readers how to travail in prayer, to press through fear or even hopelessness, Yoder prepares them for true spiritual breakthrough. Through "the cry God hears," believers can step into the brand-new life he has waiting for them.

Includes a foreword by C. Peter Wagner.

"We live in a day and an hour when there is a desperate need for a recovery of the testimony of Jesus in the earth at a greater level of expression as well as demonstration. Clearly when a prophet speaks, hearts burn, because of the rich revelation that flows from them. The life of a prophet in fact becomes the message of the prophet. Barbara Yoder is one of God's choice vessels whom God has raised up to bring about a recovery of that very testimony of Jesus, which is indeed the spirit of prophecy. You cannot read Barbara's words without hearing her heart for God, her heart for His people and His heart for His purposes being accomplished in the earth. This has been an hour of great testing and trial for many in the Body of Christ, and Barbara addresses the current hour with a prophetic insight and clarity, depth and compassion that is her signature style, and endowment she has been graced with by heaven itself. That which you hold in your hand is not merely a treatise--it is a record of revelation lived in a life, and uttered not by an echo but by a voice crying out in true prophetic tradition for a fresh coming of the Lord in all His glory. We owe Barbara a great debt of gratitude for the price she has paid in her journey to deliver these words into our very hearts and lives."
