#2020 Step 11

The moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows […]

Expect God to Answer

1 John 3:22 We will receive from Him whatever we ask because we obey Him and do the things that please Him. When you pray do you expect God to answer? If not, why are you bothering to pray? God doesn’t always answer our prayers the way we […]
