Are you sensing that there’s more to prayer than what you are currently experiencing? What is the purpose of prayer? Writer, doodler, Skye Jethani expands our understanding of this spiritual practice and shows us that it is so much more than a two-way transaction where we ask and God gives. Skye explores what we have wrong about prayer while leading us into what Jesus taught about talking with God.
There is not much debate over whether the world is broken, but not many consider the spiritual war that is being waged against all that is good and true. Ray Pritchard from Keep Believing Ministries joins Ken and Deb to talk about the daily battle and how we can not win this battle in our own armor and by our own strength. Ray describes for us the armor of God and how putting this on daily is both the defense and offense against the roaring lion that seeks to destroy us.
