What Abortion Does to a Man

By Dave Wernli / July 17, 2017 Jim couldn’t shake it. He’d had break-ups before. Why can’t I get over this? What’s the big deal? Why is this one so different? Shauna, his girlfriend he’d lived with for nine months, had been getting more and more distant for several months. Jim couldn’t figure out why. He...

Prayerlessness is Sinful & Dangerous

Minute with Mike / July 2017 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16. Satan delights in our attempts at ministry in the power of our flesh rather than the power...
