This content is part of a series.Prayer Infused with Power (3 of 8)
20 But you, my friends, keep on building yourselves up on your most sacred faith. Pray in the power of the Holy Spirit,

20 But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.

The title of the message today is: “Prayer Infused with Power”
Let me start out by asking a couple of questions that I want us to try to come to grips with today…
