In this series of 10 conversations, pastor and author Robert Gelinas joins Mart DeHaan and Elisa Morgan at the table to explore what happens when the Bible’s most prayed prayer becomes our most prayed prayer. The Mercy Prayer—learn how it is the one prayer God always answers.
Did you know that the most common prayer in the Bible is a prayer asking God for mercy? So how do we balance a God who has a reputation for being merciful, but is also a God who loves justice? Special guest, pastor, and author of the book Mercy Prayer, Robert Gelinas joins our discussions this week looking into the mercy prayer, the most prayed prayer of the Bible.
Sin isn’t our favorite thing to talk about. We suffer because of sin and we sin to relieve our suffering. It’s an unhealthy cycle that has disastrous consequences.

Have you ever thought, “ Do I really need to ask for God’s mercy if I already have it”? The short answer is yes, but it’s not just about you…it’s about others, too. Join us today as Mart DeHaan, Elisa Morgan, and special guest Robert Gelinas talk about how the closer to God we draw, the more we recognize our need for His mercy . . . both for ourselves and the whole world.
