Facing Financial Struggle
Have you ever experienced this? You sit down to pay the bills and realize that there is simply not enough money in your checking account to cover them. You turn on the national news, and the economic forecast sounds bleak. It's easy to become discouraged and overwhelmed when financial limitations press in on us. Now, more than ever, you need to feel God's presence.
Author Wessel Bentley has been there. He understands the feelings financial pressure can bring. He also knows the power of prayer. Wes shares that power of prayer in a twenty-eight day prayer guide, Facing Financial Struggle. Our Facing Financial Struggle eCourse provides twenty-eight days of daily readings, prayers, and suggestions to support you as you deal with financial trouble and all the emotions it stirs. The eCourse includes video greetings from author Wessel Bentley, audio recordings of scriptures, and prayers, questions, and ideas appropriate for personal prayer and reflection.
Bring your financial concerns to God in prayer through this self-paced eCourse.
Private eCourse classrooms with group rates are available upon request. If you are interested, email us at [email protected].
