Having a Cloud of Witnesses Surrounding us, let us Run the Race to Win the Prize!

Having our Desires Blended with God’s Desires to Pray the Prayers Initiated by God

As believers in Christ who love the Lord and pursue to know and experience Christ, we serve God by prayer, and our prayers needs to be according to His heart and will. In 1 John 5:16 we see that, if we see a brother committing a sin not unto death, we should not gossip about […]
