It was Billy Graham who said, “You cannot prevent a bird from flying over your head; but you can surely prevent it from building a nest on your head.” In John 13:2 we read about Satan putting a thought into the heart of Judas Iscariot; the thought to betray Jesus. Then we find Judas in v.27, which says that Satan …

Jose Benjamin Articles Leave a Comment

Prayer is communication with God. If we call ourselves as disciples of Christ then we should also have a daily communication with God. In a family, if a child has less/no communication with the parents, then it is not a healthy sign. They do not know each other as they ought to.
