Protection From Danger
by Ministry Support on February 6th, 2022
“He guards the paths of justice, And preserves the way of His saints.” - Proverbs 2:8  Yesterday, we talked about how the waiting periods in our lives are necessary for preparation.

by Ministry Support on January 2nd, 2022
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” - Mark 11:24  There is power in prayer. As believers, we hear this a lot.

Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)  Yesterday, we talked about how important it is to develop courage if we want to be sent by God to further His kingdom.
