    It was good to have Bob and Judy Cull with us as Bob shared from God’s word on prayer. We believe in prayer and in God’s promises, but too often we do not use the power of prayer to the potential it has in our lives. The Bible tells us to pray persistently and to pray without ceasing. Too often we as Christians use it as a last resort. As Christians, we can be confident that God always hears our prayers and will answer them.
