1999 was a tough year for many Americans. Political, business and spiritual leaders were forecasting terrible times for our world. They predicted global financial collapse.

Due to difficult circumstances, I sought out a spiritual life mentor. At our first session, I think I talked non-stop for 59 minutes.

My new mentor said: “I would like to see you every two weeks. Next time we meet please tell me how you pray.”

Now, for nearly 20 years, prayer is a fresh learning experience. Personal prayer is precious and valuable to me.

It is not so much prayer changing my circumstances as prayer changing me so that I can face the challenges life presents me. 

Writing Words Of Hope these past three years has been joy and inspiration to my soul. I look forward to seeing the photo my brilliant partner, Cory James, selects to bring life to my words. 

  • Prayer is a mystery and is infinite. 
  • Prayer is a loving conversation with Abba Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 
  • Prayer is powerful; it changes lives. 
  • Prayer is the path to peace, joy, gratitude, love, and hope. 
  • Prayer is the narrow road to silence; silence is where we find God.
  • Prayer is the language we learn through practice and listening.
  • Prayer is the highest and most noble form of communication with another.
