A Daily Study in the Scriptures with Pastor Ray Viola

Weekdays at 6:30 PM on WZXV - The Word

Jesus, Our Example Of Prayer

After a very busy, draining day of ministry, Jesus rose up very early for a time with the Father in prayer. Jesus sets the example for prayer. We know that He frequently spent time in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. Before choosing His first ‘ministry team’ He...

The Commandment To Love
