E04: Prayer As Protest

E03: Who Is My Enemy?

This week, President Donald Trump declared via Twitter that the American people have a new enemy, and it’s not a new faction of terrorism. Joel encourages us to not be distracted by the voices want us to fear, worry and doubt that God is good or that He is in control.
