Encouragement to Pray What You Really Feel

In the everyday battle of raising kids who love Jesus while living in a world that doesn’t, God invites you to come to Him. No cleaning up, no pretenses, no fancy words—all you need is to tell Him what’s truly on your heart and then ask for the wisdom, encouragement, and protection that only He can provide.
