We are a prayer-powered church and we have a prayer team of 40+ people who are faithful to the task of praying for the needs of the people. We are most encouraged by answered prayer! But when those answers seem to take a long time to come; here are some facts that we embrace in order to keep our faith strong.
Share these with you praying team and be encouraged. You might text them a quote a day, a quote a week, or a quote and a song! Whatever you do, sit with, and soak in, the truth of these statements.
