Hello God: Pray From Wherever You Are

Pray From Wherever You Are 

Pastor Silverio Sanchez begins a new series of sermons focused on being able to pray, even when life becomes complicated.  He reminds us that the gift of the Holy Spirit who lives inside of every follower of Jesus is all we need to be able to pray.  We don't need to be experts at prayer, we just need to know that God will always hear our prayers and understand exactly what we are trying to say.
