    Pray for the first caller “Julie” and pray for me. She grates on my nerves. Poor Steve! He keeps asking “what is the question for us?” – she ignores Steve and goes on an endless ramble. Leslie, Dr. Jill, and Steve you are saints!!!! The show is not a 1 hour session just for dear Julie. Does she have a pastor? Did she consult? She studied in a missions/seminary, but sounds spiritual immature. Maybe it’s just me, but she sounds juvenile. Surely there are othe callers who need support. Pray that I become more patient with ‘ramblers’- Thank you.
