Resources for Prayer


Dear Students and Friends,

Prayer has been much on my mind lately. Sometimes it is hard to pray and sometimes we need others to pray for us when the words will not come. So I've collected some resources for you that may help you think about prayer in different ways and hopefully encourage you to not give up on your prayer life.
