Stop worrying but ..“Make your life a prayer.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 TPT
Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?" - Corrie ten Boom
"If you believe in prayer at all, expect God to hear from you. If you do not expect it, you will not have. God will not hear you unless you believe He will hear you; but if you believe He will, He will be as good as your faith."
- Charles Spurgeon*
