Throughout Scripture, we are exhorted to make God and His ways our primary pursuit. When we do this, we are promised everything we need will be provided for. My good friend, Dave Patterson, lives a lifestyle of pursuing God and has encouraged me in my own walk with the Lord. In his 21-Day devotional, PURSUIT, you’ll find yourself prioritizing God’s presence as your primary pursuit and you’ll soon discover you’re the one being pursued all along—for God is attracted to those who seek Him!

When it comes to understanding prayer - the kind that comes from a place that’s deep and full of passion - I don’t know that there’s anyone with more to give than Dave Patterson. His life inspires me because it is a pursuit to know God and to live close to Him through prayer. I’m excited to see what God will do through this simple, straightforward and significant book.

Dave Patterson has modeled leaning on the Lord and birthed a dynamic and exploding ministry in Northern California on the same bedrock: “prayer and fasting.” Buckle in with us. Walk forward 21 paces. Every pace will become a mile. Your entire year will change. I’ve proven it, Pastor Dave has proven it, and now it is time for...YOU to prove it!

Excellent book from my amazing pastor!! I have been going to The Fathers House since 2001 and have seen this man walk the walk and it’s amazing to be able to read his insight. I can testify that the Holy Spirit shows up in a mighty way at The Fathers House and also through this 21 day fast and excellent devotional. Hoping for more books Pastor Dave! Adrienne
Part way through this book already and it is changing my life. Such a great guide to a deeper walk with God. I would highly recommend this devotional to anyone looking to do a fast, whether you are new to fasting or well seasoned! Timothy
Pastor Dave has written the most influential devotional "how-to" guide to pursuing God through a time of fasting and prayer. This results in a deeper walk and relationship with the Lord. One of my main takeaways from this is that it inspired me to make seeking the Lord a daily habit, setting aside time each day to sit in God's presence and read His Word. Highly recommend that everyone who calls themself a Christ-Follower get this book which is filled with scriptural references and wisdom. Karen
This is a wonderful book to accompany prayer and fasting. It is loaded with scripture and context that will bring clarity to the importance of prayer and fasting. I recommend this book to anyone seeking the Lord and wanting a Christ filled life. Kirk
