You may have noticed that I have been posing questions for weeks that you need to ask yourself in order for you to be aware of the answers to tough questions kids ask us…even the older kids. These questions mark the core of a Godly Christian Legacy. Underlying all the questions is the reality of God’s love for us and what that means. Through that love, God frees us.

Matthew says that you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer if you believe. 1 John 5 says that if you ask anything according to His will He hears us. So, in praying for one another, we are simply to pray in faith says the Bible. “But the true question,” says Alister Begg, “is faith in what?”

Theologians and pastors and people of faith have wrestled with that question with marginal results.
