How Great Is Your God? (4 of 6)
Series: The School of Prayer

Are you praying big prayers that show you believe in a big God, a God who can part the Red Sea, a God who can raise Lazarus from the dead, a God who can move mountains, a God who can change any situation (snaps fingers) just like that or are you praying to this little God who struggles with your problems to make ends meet at the end of the month?
