  • We often hear public expressions of prayer and calls for prayer, particularly after crises hit. Is God answering those prayers? Does God answer your prayers? The Bible explains why many prayers aren’t answered. We’ll talk about that and offer a free book that will help you make sure your prayers get results.
  • Why does America have the highest incarceration rate in the world? Is it because of overzealous policing, overly stringent drug laws, or racist law enforcement?
  • Student loan debt in America is soaring. We’ll talk about a hidden effect this is having—not just financially, but culturally: what it is doing to America’s families.
  • And we’ll conclude with some inspiring lessons about answered prayer.
