The Prayer Promise

There aren’t a lot of things in life that I will say, “I absolutely know.” But this is one of them. God is good and He answers prayer. I don’t carelessly throw around the phrase, “I’ll be praying for you.”

So my promise to you is this. No matter who you are, stranger or friend, longtime believer in Christ or far from God, if you ask me to pray for you, I will do it. Your name and prayer request will go onto my list in my Bible where it will then be lifted up heavenward to God on your behalf. Send me an email with as much or as little information as you want.
