    Redemption Praise and the Call

     Personal distance
        Between us and God’s unending
        love.

     Personal limits
        Result in reliance on God’s:
      compassion, forgiveness, and
        reconciliation.

      Prayer, for leaders, begins with:
         • A personal encounter
         • Continual practice -- connecting
           with God through prayer
