eInspire 8: Follow-up questions to an event

eInspire 4: Gospel-inspired prayer for people

The people for whom we pray are at different stages in their spiritual journey. God invites us to pray. “Ask and it will be given to you…For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 For whom you are praying?
