Adversity in life can sometimes cause our faith to be shaken. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson interviews Dave Butts, the late president of Harvest Prayer Ministries in 2018. Before his passing, Dave opened up about his battle with a rare form of cancer, from which he wasn’t expected to recover. Through this difficult journey, he revealed what he learned about fervent prayer and the peace of God.
