Several years ago, without realizing the scope of such an effort, I decided to email a group of my verse prayers to some randomly selected church leaders in the United States and a few other countries. Subsequently the favorable unsolicited feedback received motivated me to begin what became a horrendous undertaking. After two years of on and off daily mailings I surprisingly learned I had sent more than ten thousand copies, one by one, to American and foreign locations - some forty percent of which had been returned as undeliverable because of outdated email addresses.
Surprisingly however, I had also received more than two hundred complimentary returns from pastors, priests, evangelists, deacons, ministers - even an army chaplain. They arrived not only from across the United States (including Hawaii and Alaska), but also from England, Australia,, Scotland, Romania, Mexico, Africa, India and the Philippines
I was told that verse prayers had been used in sermons, Sunday schools, church bulletins and publications [even during a communion] as well as having been posted on several computer sites. The revelation made me feel that I was in a sense part of hundreds of services here and abroad. I felt greatly blessed, even experienced a bit of pride for which I felt some guilt and hope to be forgiven.
Several contained requests that I publish these and future verses in a book. Eventually I decided to have a small quantity of professionally printed. paperbacks done. I'm of the opinion that if they are acceptable to the Lord and He cares to have additional copies printed and distributed that will somehow be done I trust that you enjoy them and find a few that speak to your heart in as much as they are praise and prayer statements that emanated from mine.
