Rev. Richard Atkinson: May 2020
Richard talks about the power and potential of prayer with his thoughts on the well known Bible passage about moving mountains — Matthew 21:21-22.
21 Jesus replied, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
