When the Words Don’t Come

When you want to pray.  You need to pray.  But you just don’t know where to start. The words don’t come. Or they sound hollow. Then there are times when we fall instantly to our knees.  Begging.  Pleading. Tears blurring our vision. We cry out to God.  Our Father.  Our Creator.  Healer. Sustainer. Ever-present help in time…

RAIN/Scripture Challenge: Hosea
