But sometimes the Bible can be confusing. "What the Bible Says" is a series of short articles by Rev. John Odhner addressing some common questions about faith and life, drawing from all parts of the Bible.

An Alphabetof Prayers

An alphabetical collection of brief prayers directly from the Bible. The original purpose of this collection of Scripture verses was to provide an easy introduction to prayer for students, teachers, parents and families. Each simple prayer can be memorized relatively quickly and incorporated into individual or group prayers. Each one has its own special beauty and power because of being a direct quotation from the Lord’s Word. Collected and arranged by Rev. Nathan Gladish, Assistant Pastor.
