Try Praying Like This…

Do you ever feel like your prayer life gets monotonous and THAT is one of the excuses you give to not pray as you should? You’re certainly not alone.

As to ourselves, then, in our study, in prayer, in thought, in word, and in deed, we must depend upon the Holy Spirit.”                                        -C.H.
