God put it on my heart to write a book about prayer. This came as a complete surprise to me since I have never thought of myself as a writer. Actually, God has put a couple of book ideas in my heart over the last ten years or so and I have rejected them because I was clueless as to where to start. Besides that, I wasn't crazy about subjecting myself to public criticism. God didn't say why He wanted me to write this book but I got the impression that I should not reject His request again. So here you have it. I hope with all my heart that through reading this book you will be able to draw closer to God as your First Love and your most trusted confidant. Talk to Him throughout the day as if your best friend was right there at your side. Run to His arms when you need help or protection. Love Him with all of your heart. Sink your roots into Him and never let go. I was born and raised on the East Coast and spent most of my adult life in the Mountain States. Now I am semi-retired and living in Panama with my sweet husband. We spend our days learning Spanish, helping people and telling them about the love of Jesus. 22 years ago I asked Jesus Christ to be Lord of my life. Soon after that I was diagnosed with cancer and clung to the Lord for dear life. After four bouts of cancer and many ups and downs we are closer now than ever. My Lord has never abandoned me. To those who say that they don't want to give up their lifestyle to become a Christian I say "Oh honey, you don't know what you are missing My life has never been more full or more fun."
