Hope to see you there – We will meet in the Chapel
This study explores the questions surrounding prayer that many of us wonder about but few of us know how to express. Above all, this book teaches us how to pray to a God who sees what lies ahead of us, knows what lies within us, and who invites us into an eternal partnership through prayer.
Ice Cream for Breakfast? Yes, that is right!
