Faithful Prayer

Have you ever prayed and feel like God is listening but not responding? You know He is providing complete attention but He is silent. You are not the only one. David felt the same; “To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, do not be deaf to me, I will become like those who go…

Empowered by God’s Presence

Our biblical heroes were not superhuman, they overcame and grew due to their reliance on God’s continual presence and His powerful healing in the midst of their circumstances.  God’s presence is a necessary reminder of who heals us as we encounter church hurt, divorce, past negative experiences, feeling alone, marital issues, past abuse, cancer survivors,…
