Does God hear our prayers? Does God care? Does God involve himself in the details of our lives? Does God ever intervene? Really? Joanna Watson’s exciting new book exclaims a resounding “YES!” God is with us; God is for us … It will also raise faith in us to believe, seek, and expect to see more of God’s gracious and miraculous intervention.
