Take the
Pearl Challenge

– draw near to Jesus -

You are a beloved child of the Most High God. Did you know your Father wants to speak to you? Will you step out in faith and take the “7 Day Pearl” Challenge (PRL for short)?

For the next 7 days…

  1. Pray – asking the Lord Jesus to reveal Himself to you,
  2. Read – 3 to 5 verses (Psalms or John),
  3. Listen – for His still small voice.

We encourage you to do a fast from something during your challenge.

Email 7dayPRL@gmail.com or submit a post on our Facebook page to let us know you are taking the challenge and then afterwards tell us what our Father is telling you. Your feedback will encourage others. To His glory & your good we pray in Jesus name. Amen!!!

At a young age I was affected by the death of my father. Growing up in the church I didn’t understand the love of our Father God due to my broken father relationships. At the age of 30, I experienced a real tangible love from the Lord, which transformed my life. As I started seeking the Lord and discovering my new relationship with Him through Jesus, He has been changing me more and more into the likeness of Jesus in transformational ways. The Father continues to cleanse and purify me of my sin so He can use me to encourage others to really experience who we are as He intended. This is a lifelong process that is being done by the hands of a perfect loving Heavenly Father through the power of the Holy Spirit and by the sacrifice of a perfect savior, Jesus Christ my Lord.

What are others saying?

“I found the PRL Challenge to be more of a challenge than I expected. I had a couple of wonderful days where I was able to really tune in and listen for God’s voice. Other days I was too much on the run to really listen for the voice of the Lord. The PRL Challenge is totally worthwhile. When I do listen for and listen to God’s voice, I am a much more joyful, peaceful, and open person. More fruitful.

Thanks for the PRL Challenge!”
