Bible Talks by Ray Galea
Bible Text: John 17
Jesus prays for himself, for the 11 apostles, and most wonderfully for us 2000 years later. His big prayer point is that we would be one in love and truth so that the world may know that Jesus is heaven sent.
Ray Galea helps us to think God's thoughts about what is happening in our world and how Christians have responded during previous pandemics.
