Prayer... Life giving, Love giving.... NEVER ending PRAYER

Managing Real Estate Broker

I am reading a most incredible book given to me by a most incredible woman with a heart overflowing with love. The book that I am just getting into is by River Jordan, Praying for Strangers. Funny thing about it is that through the years I have done this on a much smaller scale and not sure why I was doing it. My heart just led me that way and I followed.


Many times when I am going down a street or Pier Park or running... anywhere there are other of God's children I will offer up a quick prayer for the people I see. It makes you feel so uplifted and because I believe the prayers and thoughts are not in vain....there is power amazing power in that moment.


This spirit packed author made a Resolution to pray for a total stranger each day and the results of that are in small but SOUL LIFTING stories filled with compassion and great love. I am already touched in the first few chapters and can hardly wait for the impact that the completion of the book will bring. I suspect it will be one more affirmation that there is something so much bigger than us and that we have a far greater impact on each other than we can imagine. After all we are all formed and created from the same energy source.


Please do yourself a favor and get this book and don't stop there get another one or two or three for friends or better yet.... Strangers.


To give you a taste of one of her thoughts that set my soul singing... here it goes. "And I wonder what my life would look like if I lived this way, walking and breathing out prayers. Blessings and peace and prayers and wonders and miracles for all that I encounter. I wonder what the city would look like if we all did that, if the world was one big cup of prayer for one day. Only one day. I wonder." River Jordan.


I don't want to look back and regret that there are so many people that I could have learned from along the way if I would but slow down!!! Maybe tomorrow or maybe right now I can do that and change the rest of my life into a more purposeful and meaningful life that will pave the path for a more prayerful life.


Thank you Ellen for taking the time to bless me with this book!! What a difference you made in my life and how many others as the chapters unfold. Prayer prayer wonder working LIFE giving LOVE giving prayer!!!!

It sounds like an amazing book.  The one thing I have added into my 2012 business plan is the reading of spiritual, positive, inspirational books daily. I will put this book on my list of ones to pick up.  I have not yet picked up any, so this is exciting for me!  Thanks.

Sounds like my kind of book, I'll be adding it to my reading list for the new year.
