Questions for Jesus
Learn how to pray to God around your deepest desires. When we learn to ask the questions Jesus most longs to answer, we’ll be amazed at how our conversation with Him comes to life. Most Christians regularly ask God for guidance, help or to tell them what to do. In other words, we pray about the business of how to live the Christian life. But how often do we ask Jesus questions about our relationship? Questions for Jesus by Tony Stoltzfus is an experiential guide to developing a profound intimacy with a good God, by asking Him what you most long to know.
