Episode 298 – How to Be Honest With God in Prayer with Hillary Morgan Ferrer & Julie Loos

“We wanted to give women permission to say all the things. That they don’t have to pretty themselves up before they come to the Lord, they can come to Him with all their yuck.” Hillary Morgan Ferrer, founder of Mama Bear Apologetics, and Julie Loos, who has served in Moms in Prayer for over 20 years, share about their newest book, “Honest Prayers for Mama Bears”. God wants us to bring our whole, true selves to Him and lay our hearts and burdens before Him. And you know what? That’s not too much for God. That’s actually what He wants! He loves you, uniquely made you, and wants to hear from YOU.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. James 4:3 ESV

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21b ESV

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:12-13 NIV

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2 NIV
