1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, "Pray without ceasing." But according to David Platt, our church culture today is known for preaching, writing and passive listening, but not for prayer and fasting. Unless we take action, we are in danger of missing the whole point. On today’s edition of Family Talk, the pastor of McLean Bible Church in Washington D.C. shares the value of our prayers, in an address given at the 2019 National Day of Prayer. He explains how we see various characteristics of God when we fervently pray like Moses did in Exodus 32.
