Have you ever been in a place where you called out “Why?” to God? Have you ever wondered if those kinds of prayers are okay? I am delighted to introduce you to my friend, author and speaker, Janet McHenry. Today on the blog Janet answers that question as she discusses The “Why” Prayer. There’s a Book Giveaway so be sure to read to the end!
Sometimes it’s easy to pray, but with a seed of doubt. Sometimes we pray wondering, “Is God really going to answer my prayers?”

Waiting to see the doctor on chemotherapy days was never fun, but especially when we waited to hear lab results to know if the poisonous torture was making a difference. [more]
