Get A Grip: On Prayer

Pastor Johan Hinderlie

May 21, 2017

Reading — Luke 18:1–8, Confession — Heavenly Father, I thank you that you have created me and all things. I am sorry that I doubt your purpose for making me. For Jesus’ sake, forgive every thought, word and deed that give my doubts power. I reject these false feelings. Make my feelings conform to your will for me. You are my God, I have not life apart from you. Amen.
