Great Prayers of the Bible: Pray for God’s Presence
Life can switch from joy to despair in a matter of moments. What do we pray when we are overcome by worry and we feel like God is not present? Even in the middle of the desert God reminds us that He is still with us. God does not have to be loud to move big. 1 Kings 18:16-46, 1 Kings 19:1-18.
