Overview

My book, “Are You Ready,” contains six topics which I believe would help as the clear preaching of God’s Word, at least in our nation, grows colder and colder. Hopefully, it will motivate all readers to search all the scripture, study it, hide it in their heart, meditate on it, obey it, and live by it.

On further reflection I discovered one very important topic was left out. That is God’s desire to hear our petitions (prayers) and answer them in accordance with His perfect will. He is our Father; we are His sons. I am convinced we do not receive many of the blessings He offers because we don’t ask or really believe He will answer. We know He can, we just don’t believe He will. When we do get answers we won’t give God the credit and glory that he richly deserves. We shrug it off as coincidence.
