Jonathan’s Journey: Faith vs. Sexuality

March 29, 2017 - He would pray. Again. And again. And again.

Jonathan Brower so desperately wanted to be healed. He so desperately wanted God to take away his homosexuality. To make him not gay.

And so he would pray. After every thought. After every inkling of a feeling. He prayed and hoped that one day, God would listen.
