Intense determination to implement God s purpose for her life would describe the character of Pastor Suzette Caldwell. She has committed her life to achieving excellence through biblical living. She strongly believes that any person who is willing to walk by faith and trust God will achieve their dreams and desires. In 1986, Suzette graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering. Caldwell s professional career as an environmental engineer in the public and private sector spans over 17 years. As an entrepreneur, she owned TC Consulting Group, Inc., an environmental consulting company. In September 1997, Governor George W.

In addition, Caldwell serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Kingdom Builders Prayer Institute, a non-profit community-based organization that prays for the Houston metropolitan area and teaches people how to pray.

    Changed My Prayer Life

    This book was an effective tool to help me have a more effective prayer life. It was easy to understand and provided sample prayers that have truly brought miracles into my life. I recommend it to everyone!

    Truly Life-Changing

    Pastor Suzette definitely has a calling on her life to not just teach us "how" to pray, but "why" we pray, as well as the "purpose" of praying. For those who are genuinely serious about allowing God to use their lives for the manifestation of His good and perfect Will in our natural lives, I highly recommend this book. It is a very easy-read, yet extremely effective and life-changing.

    Wonderful Prayer Guide

    If you are looking for a good book on prayer this is definitely it. I've recited the Lord's Prayer since childhood and have never really thought about how it was constructed or what the words really meant. Pastor Caldwell takes you through each section of the prayer and helps you understand how to use the model God gave us to create your own personal productive and purpose-filled prayers. It definitely takes practice, but she provides great tools to use in the book.

    Uplifting & Inspiring

    I have never read a book such as this before. It is an exceptional guide not only on how pray more effectively but also on building a more intimate relationship with GOD. I would and already have recommended this book. A Great and easy read.
