Host:Dr. James Dobson
Guest:U.S. Senate Chaplain Rev. Barry Black
Prayer is the breath of the soul. That’s the contention of U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black, author of Make Your Voice Heard in Heaven: How to Pray with Power. In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus used the word "Abba" for His Heavenly Father, which means "Daddy." As people of faith, we are God's children, and because of His love, He is our greatest encourager. That’s why God wants us to make our voices heard in Heaven through continual prayer.
