Have you ever had to lift up a desperate prayer? Throughout the Bible, we see people in desperate need to seek God through prayer. In today's podcast, we'll look at their desperate prayers, and God's responses to those prayers, that we may learn more about prayer in our own desperate situations.

Key Takeaways:
• In our desperate times, there is a pouring out and a casting. It's not holding in all our feelings and emotions while trying our best to act as if they don't exist. It's being real with God about what we want, what's hurting us, and what's troubling us.
• It's important not only to be desperate for our prayer to simply be answered but to be desperate for the God who answers prayers.
• We serve a God who knows what it's like to be desperate, to suffer, to hurt. We are never alone. When we find ourselves in situations where God is all we have, we often discover He's all we ever needed.
