About the Book

Prayer is communication with The Father, fundamental in Jesus’ life on earth, and to ours too, as christians. To live the christian life we need to be in touch. The author has been concerned to deepen and broaden our prayer life, and thus promote our relationship with God and our christian service.

The book does not give a method for prayer, rather to extend horizons, as each reader finds their own way to pray for the churches and the community, and themselves.

Doing God’s Will is not our trying, but our responding to his prompts. God understands us; we need to understand how He is working. Then we will be productive servants. The Lord’s vineyard is our world and it is to everyone’s advantage, christian or otherwise, to prosper it.

About the Author

Jim was born in a village in the heart of England. As a young man three happenings shaped his life: he became a christian, he went to Tanganyika as an Education Officer, there he and his wife found each other.

They worked in Ethiopia when it was breaking free from the feudal system, which trapped people in extreme poverty, and landowners in their life-style.

They were in Botswana when Mugabe’s war veterans set up camps along the borders and later worked in Zimbabwe under Mugabe’s administration, which regarded Jim as a british spy.

Together they did a prayer plus study tour of Israel and visited churches in South America. They retired to live in Spain, and ran aid work in Nepal. Then the Lord gave Jim a new life, alone, in a village, in an area enjoying a mix of spanish, arab and jewish cultures.

Throughout Jim has done extensive Bible study and organised study groups. Jim’s interesting life has given him his particular perspective on christianity and christian living.
