Simply, pray one of these verses each day (merely a minute or two daily) for a year and then a second year. Together, we'll watch God glorify Himself as He radically changes the Banjara testimony of never hearing the good news of Jesus to one of that at the name of Jesus every [Banjara]knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
