“I tell you to believe that you have receiver the things you ask for in prayer, and God will give them to you.” (Mark 11:24)

The fruit that God assures is far greater than promotions and proposals. His dreams are far greater than anything you can imagine. He wants you to be free of sin, fear, death, pain and much more. These are the prayers he will answer
