We need to have love for one another when we come to God in Prayer. 2) Pray with Confidence: Are we confident …

He will never turn back on you

Hebrews 13:5 …He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” For six whole hours, the Son of God was suspended between heaven and earth. And at the height of His suffering on the cross, He cried out in the deep darkness, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:45–46). For the first time, Jesus addressed His Father as “God.” The Father had forsaken the Son. As Judge of the universe, God had to turn His back on His Son, who was carrying the filth of the world’s sins, for His eyes are too …
