Prayer – Updated 4/16

People are sometimes startled to hear me say it, but the truth is that if you have no real prayer life, you also have no real relationship with God. It may be harsh to some ears, but it’s the truth. You may know of God, but that’s not the same thing as actually knowing God. Since prayer is generally not taught well in most churches, this is an area which many people struggle with, either because they don’t know how to make prayer a part of their faith walk or because prayer doesn’t seem to “work” the way they have been taught to assume it will. But fear not – The Upside Down World has plenty to share on the topic of prayer!
