     | 2,455 views

    We need to approach prayer with a sense of bold, unhesitating urgency--with chutzpah. We have no worries--unlike the grumpy, groggy neighbor, God never slumbers and is always happy to hear from us.

A complete lack of fruitfulness from all, except one. Among the people in the church, there is no fruit, except in a small group of ...read more
