What exactly are we to do and…
 
Prayer is mysterious to us, isn’t it? How exactly does prayer work? If God works all things according to the counsel of his will — why pray?

So we start to see the tension, …

With specific insigh…

“The fear factor of a transition is real. And it will hit you. But you have to remind yourself that that is literally what the devils plan is to do to you. Is to paralyze you.

If we live a Beatitude-style life, Jesus says we will be persecuted at some level because of it. We’ve learned in our study that these Beatitudes build upon one another.
