Thank you Bruce for yet another great practical message! This time concerning prayer. I have been keeping up with my Personal prayer in the mornings but realise it is not enough.

Hi Bruce. Thank you for teaching me how to pray. Time of prsyer is so important and and must be open and say that many a times I struggle to pray and my whole inner part is just not there. Thank you for bringing in relationship with God more into prayer then knowledge. Than you so much for the practical msge of prayer. God bless
