Evidence that evil is flourishing faces Christians every day, leaving many feeling hopeless and helpless. What they don't realize, says esteemed pastor Jack Hayford, is the power that is theirs through the cross. Instead, they labor under the misconception that spiritual warfare occurred only during biblical times.

But it is right here, right now, says Pastor Jack. And for the first time he lays out the strategies he's learned for engaging and defeating evil--through prayer. With clarity and passion, he shows readers how to

• develop powerful devotional habits
• engage in intercession
• plead the blood of Christ
• understand the correct use of binding and loosing
• confront evil
• learn why some prayers don't succeed
• and much more

When believers embrace the cross's power, they will stand up in hope and light against the evil of this world, penetrating even the deepest places where the enemy's darkness dwells.

Jack Hayford is founding pastor of The Church On The Way and chancellor of The King's College and Seminary. He has written more than forty books and nearly six hundred hymns and choruses. His national radio and television programs span the world. He and his wife, Anna, live near Los Angeles, California.

Review Text

  • By Cheryl Ricker on September 14, 2012

    I've read countless books on prayer and spiritual warfare. "Penetrating the Darkness" is by far at the top of my list. Carefully backed with Scripture, it will change the way you pray, and leave you with a richer, fuller understanding of how you can make a significant impact in this present evil age.Here's a short excerpt:* The epistles laud the cross and the blood of Christ as having completed salvation's provision, but they also teach that a spiritual conflict is being engaged in this present evil age" (Galatians 1:4).* The blood of the cross is not only honored, but its power is testified to as the source of authority that equips believers to prevail in this present age-long battle against "that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world" (Revelation 12:9).* All prayer-petition, intercession, supplication and praiseful thanksgiving-is noted as the weapons of our warfare," as believers gird for the battle in spiritual armor and take up spiritual weaponry (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Ephesians 6:10-18).Hayford reminds us that God wants to enlist us in this battle:Consider the implications of these three key phrases in which Jesus speaks, calling us-now and then-to hear, understand and act what "the Kingdom of God" is about, and how He wants us as His disciples to learn to draw on Kingdom power and apply its gracious works through prayer.* "The kingdom of God has come upon you" (Luke 11:20). Jesus is saying that because He-the King-was/is present, His Kingdom's potential to penetrate whatever need exists with His personal grace, forgiveness, healing or peace is also present-that is, if and wherever hearing hearts welcome Him into their lives or situations. In short, He's saying, "My world (Kingdom) is ready to change your world if you are willing and will ask."* "The kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17). The presence of the King is the point. Any place He's welcome, He will enter and work "the Father's will"-on earth (where you are) as it is in heaven, which is nearer "at hand" because God is not distant. Its blessing and transforming power, character and qualities are within the circle of the hearer's reach or access.Our privilege of access is explained when Jesus begins to teach about His Church, about how He will build it and how He intends us, the same as His early disciples, to confront the workings of evil. He specifically expressed His will to give "access" to each of us who come to Him, saying, "I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 16:18-19).........Hayford has clearly heard from God!Filled with true, personal, unforgettable stories, Hayford is as interesting as he is thorough. Take these fascinating Biblical principles to heart, apply them to your life, and watch your prayer life rise to a whole new dimension of power, fervency, and effectiveness!

    A pleasant surprise. I haven't read many of Hayford's books yet but I've read good reviews of his books and I've heard he is a good writer. I was browsing through books on spiritual warfare and stumbled upon this book. It was on sale for 1.99 at the time so, after reading the reviews I thought why not, I'll read this. And wow, what a blessing this book has been to read. It's one of those "life changing" books. I encourage every true Believer to read it. One of the things I enjoy most about reading books written by Christians is when their true self comes through and you can see that this author knows God intimately and deeply. This is one of those books. A pleasure to read and a gift. I couldn't put it down until it was finished. Thank you Jack---Ill be reading more of your books.

    I am so glad I bought this book. I wasn't sure what I expected, but once I started reading, it was very hard to take a break from it. The principles of prayer, living a Godly life, a life of interceeding... are most valuable for every Christian to know. Some things in this book were new to me & I appreciated learning so I can be sure that I'm prepared to penetrate the darkness with my prayers.

    Pastor Hayford's thoughtful writing style makes me want to take it slowly and meditate on his lessons. It's very uplifting and begins with a great foundation before addressing the spiritual battle plans the book seeks to impart. A valuable read and study from a reliable and respected Bible teacher.

    Jack Hayford does an exceptional job in sharing what we have by the blood of Jesus Christ. That our prayers do make a difference and when we use them in obedience to the Lord we can be a part of the change process.

    One of the best books I have ever read on spiritual warfare from a CORRECT Scriptural perspective. Excelling reading for a Christian who has questions about demonic activity.

    Good easy read. Very insightful.

    This book has helped me to realize how much I would like to learn about effective and biblical prayer strategies. Jack Hayford is a gem. Can't recommend him highly enough. I would be interested in a prayer book by Jack Hayford for a variety of topics.
