September-Prayer (pt.3)

As we come to the end of September with our missional focus this month on prayer, I have a confession to make – I still don’t really know exactly what prayer is. Is it a time to ask God for stuff? Is it something to help connect me with the Creator? Is it something I’m supposed […]
