Keep On Keeping On

Jul 24, 2016

By: The Reverend Stephen Winsett

If Scripture teaches us anything about Jesus, it's that He prayed, regularly and often. He taught us how to pray to God with the words of the Lord's Prayer, and to pray boldly. Persist in prayer and know that every prayer is heard and answered, often in unseen ways, and that God loves you and has not forgotten you, and will always keep His promise

The Gospel reference is Luke 11:1-13.
