PRAYER TALES is a collection of twelve straight-to-the-heart short stories. The settings, characters and adventures differ radically, but prayer plays an essential role in each. There are plenty of twists, turns and surprises just ahead---because not all prayer is equal --- so the outcomes will vary greatly! Let the expeditions begin as we... Share the perplexing trials of an exotic young man, Observe the worshipers of a misshapen rock, Sit in on a bizarre executive placement interview, Join the desperate attempt to flee a dying planet, Sit down to a business luncheon at the Country Club, Cheer for our team in the NCAA football championship, Discover the fate of an ailing pornographer, Sit at a blocked railroad crossing with two frustrated trashmen, Go fishin' with a boy and his special little sister, Learn the life and death decision of a grieving widow, Take a once-in-eternity chance on winning The Prize, and Visit an older couple with grass too long to cut. As you navigate PRAYER TALES, I hope you'll be stirred to pray. As you pray, I hope you'll receive answers long sought. As you receive, I hope you'll welcome the One whose heart uniquely fits your own-the One who hears and answers all your prayers.
