Prayer Changes Things
Prayer is a privilege and gift—a direct line to our Heavenly Father that we can access anytime. It strengthens our fellowship with God, renewing our trust in His guidance. Jesus showed us the importance of prayer, urging us to bring all our concerns and joys to God.
In this episode of Relentless Hope, Fern Nichols highlights the significance of prioritizing prayer. Her journey began with heartfelt prayers regarding her fears for her children. Let’s learn how she surrendered those fears to God and found renewed hope and peace.

Fern encourages us to trust God’s plan and use our talents for good works, emphasizing that our purpose is to love God, foster fellowship, and collaborate for His Kingdom.

Closing prayer for Fern’s story:
Dear Lord, I feel like I am at a crossroads and unsure which path You would have me follow. Please show me the way. Please grant me the clarity I need to make the best decision for the highest and greatest good. And deliver these messages to me so I will hear them, understand them, and trust them. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’s Name, amen.
Daily prayer is transformative, deepening our fellowship with God and reminding us that He is ever-present. When we spend quality time with Him, we find comfort, wisdom, courage, and grace.
