Scripture Verses When You Need Guidance and Direction

Scripture Verses When You Need Guidance and Direction

The Bible says the Lord Jesus gave us The Lord’s Prayer to help obtain a closer relationship with God the Father. If we follow His guidance and direction on how to grow closer in our walk with the Lord God, we will pray as the Lord Jesus prayed. If we pray consistently in His will and never doubt, He promise to hear and answer our prayers and we will feel His presence in our lives.
