Powerful Prayer

January 23, 2013


This morning I went to my knees again over a situation that I don’t have the ability to change. It’s important and present, and as deadlines approach and I turn again to the Lord in prayer, it is with much less anxiety than I have before. For months I have had prayers answered one after […]
