40 Days of Prayer:  TODAY is our last Sunday for these messages, but these 40 days are a foundation on which we can all build a prayer life which moves mountains!  We have the sermons on the website or we have Sermon CDs in the library to review the messages if you would like to listen and take more notes.  Thank you for participating!
