Why Doesn’t God Answer Our Prayers? | Message 5

Video Slideshow

This video presentation is similar to a screen saver that automatically advances with celestial images of the heavens from the Hubble, Nasa, STScI and James Webb sites. They all have an accompanying scripture, or portions which can help illustrate  Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”.

This series on the Glory of God was originally introduced with only ten Hubble slides shown on a large screen while fifteen verses were being read.  It lasted about ten minutes.  When completed there will be around 400 images in the Video Slideshow with related scriptures.
