About

My books, Made To Pray and One-Minute Devotions On Prayer, are helpful guides to developing a satisfying and fruitful prayer life. My experience as a Prayer Warrior, Missionary, and Speaker for over 15 years has prepared me to help Christians turn their ineffective prayer lives into exciting experiences that increase their hunger for God’s presence and achieve incredible results through the most powerful tool available, prayer. I’ve appeared in Charisma Magazine, Extant Magazine, the Christian Post, and the Centre Daily Times, and serve on the National Committee of Mission America Coalition.

A recent survey showed that 75% of people are unsatisfied with prayer. This growing problem of unsatisfied prayer lives is destroying the Church from the inside out. Like a cancer that goes undetected until it is too late. One major indicator that this cancer has infected a church is if the prayer meeting is the least attended meeting at the church.

Individuals see the symptoms and try different cures but most of teaching on prayer today is made of platitudes, sugar-laden sentiment, or guilt-inducing directives which either gives a temporary rush that quickly fades or adds to the feeling of being unsatisfied. Made To Pray goes to the root of the problem and identifies a proper cure based upon each individual’s need.

Most people know their personality type and may know their most prominent spiritual gifts, but do you know your best prayer types? In Made To Pray, I identify 12 different prayer types and help people discover the ones that are most effective for them. With this knowledge they can begin their journey to an enjoyable, effective, and fruitful prayer life. We all know that when the Body of Christ comes together in joyful prayer, God listens and miracles happen!
