He’s Praying For You!

How do we hear God’s love for us? Let me give us a place to start – Jesus. I am utterly confident that Jesus knew the Father’s voice in prayer. In the chamber of His inner life, He listened to the words of our Father in Heaven. And, the Word of God assured Jesus that He was loved. Jesus knew the Father accepted Him as the beloved. Jesus knew the inner safety of God’s love, even in the face of the cross. The Father would deliver Him. Jesus knew that He was free to be exactly who God sent Him to be.

The psychology of grief was then applied to the Peace Corp to help deal with culture shock.[2] The worksheets are still in use today.
