Do you ever feel like your life is spinning out of control? Like you need to frantically run around and ask everyone to pray for you? Do you feel like you just don’t know the answers? Almost every day since I started this blog, I have told you that God is with you. Did you know that God is for you, with you, AND in you? . . .
I’ve noticed that many people get caught up in the “how to” of prayer. I understand fully, because I’ve been there.
