Finally Settled In

The Power of Praying in Faith

Do you ever wonder why some people’s prayer is very effective and others don’t seem to accomplish anything with their prayer life?  Some Christians are considered “prayer warriors” while others do not rate that title.  Does God respect one person more than another person, is that why he works on behalf of some and not […]
