Pray by Confessing

Pray by Confessing

Why do we find prayer to be so difficult? In a word, it is because of sin. Whether we are in difficult or prosperous circumstances, our sin keeps us dependent on ourselves rather than on God. Prayer, then, is fundamental to the war against sin. As we confess and forsake our sins in prayer, we […]

The Obedient Child
