According to God’s Will

According to God’s Will

Since we sometimes pray outside of God’s will, part of the Holy Spirit’s job is to change our minds – not convince God to give us what we want. That’s why the Spirit ‘searches our hearts’ in prayer. Sometimes words are inadequate; you don’t always know what someone’s ...
