by Crossroads

Ask and you will receive

by Crossroads

“So I say to you: ‘Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened’. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for […]

Oh, How He Loves Us
