Pastor Ford will explain today that if we are praying for something that is not attached to the purpose of God, then we shouldn’t expect it to happen. The questions we ought to ask when we want something from God are these—will this glorify the person of Jesus Christ? Will this fulfill the purpose of Jesus Christ?
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
