How prayer changed my life.
In 1991 I was working as an undercover narcotics agent for the federal government. I was ready to go undercover and ensnare some drug trafficker as I had done many times, so it was to be just another routine day on the job. As the day progressed things went horribly wrong and I ended up getting shot in the back and, paralyzed for life in an instant.
I grew up attending church and knew about prayer, yet never exercised the divine privilege until that fateful day when the bullet hit my spine and before I fell to the ground I said, "God, please don't let me die." Little did I know or understand at that moment that I was praying for the first time, and, to this very day, I believe God answered my prayer.
This book I hope will encourage people to read what the Bible has to say about such a profound, powerful, and, wonderful privilege prayer is. Prayer is not just about asking God for things; it is so much more. I hope and pray you experience God's response to you when in reverence, adoration, confession, and thanksgiving, and supplication you approach Him.
