Do you know how deeply God the Father cherishes you? Can you feel him doting on you? We’ve all had human fathers whose imperfections tainted our image of God the Father. Listen to the FOOTSTEPS TO HEAVEN podcast episode that unpacks the Litany of the Father’s Heart. Terry Modica shares the story of how she met the Father after growing up without him. Then she will lead you into a closer relationship with him through this prayer.
