Lutheran Witness: May 2012

In the May issue of The Lutheran Witness, we find out why Christ loves to hear our prayers and why He delights in them. In “The Gift of Prayer,” the Rev. Dr. John Kleinig explains why prayer can be difficult for us and why Christ has taken such care in helping us learn how to pray. Dr. Gene Edward Veith explains why prayer isn’t fading from the culture, despite what people may think, in “Even Atheists Pray.”
