Strike the Mark

By James W. Goll

Prayers that strike the mark are specific prayers authorized by the Holy Spirit and endowed with divine power to accomplish the will of God in your life and for the needs of the world. On the cross, Jesus fulfilled the ultimate answer to all of our prayers, but He awaits our invitation to come into our situations and circumstances. When people of prayer intercede, they create a meeting place between the heavenly Father and His children. God comes upon the person who is praying and moves them from the natural to the supernatural. Empowered by God, the intercessor has the authority to cut down enemy forces and pick out "targets" for God’s lightning bolts of glory, bringing victory and breakthrough.Intercession could be called "extreme prayer” because it links extreme needs with the extraordinary power of God. Inserting ourselves into the gap between God and a need, we call upon the Holy Spirit, our Helper, who is ready to move us from finite ability to infinite ability, take hold of difficult situations, and help accomplish the will of God. We have the great honor of being called to “paint targets” on cities, churches, ministries, family members, contemporary "Sauls" (those who persecute or cause difficulty), and even ourselves. Our believing, persistent prayers will Strike the Mark! “He covers His hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark” (Job 36:32 NASB).

Powerfully Targeted Prayers for Victory and Breakthrough

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” —Matthew 16:19

Prayer enables us to partner with God to make His will/kingdom manifest here in this world. Strike the Mark focuses on this very thing. James Goll encourages us all to see intercession as the vehicle God uses to release His glory into every situation. I urge you to read this book and to stand in the place of prayer for your family, city, and nation. Give heaven a target, and watch God’s glorious will increasingly manifest on the earth.

Simply stated, I know of no one more qualified to write on prayer than James Goll—no one! He lives a supernatural life, undoubtedly because he lives a life of prayer. James may be the most unique blend of scholasticism and prophetic revelation of anyone I know. Regardless of your current understanding of prayer, read Strike the Mark and you will become more effective in intercession...guaranteed.
