The author’s first real prayer was offered when he was nine years old. That morning his father had a cerebral hemorrhage. That night he asked God to bring him home. By the time the prayer was offered his father was with the Lord. It was nearly forty years before he offered up the desire of his heart again. He chose not to seek God again, and the course of his life reflected that choice and the consequences thereof. Now he lives a life brand new, enjoying the life God gave with his wife and son in Houston, Texas, where they are members of the First Church of Christ (Holiness) USA.
