  1. This is the first time I watched your awesome and inspiring trailer. Thank you Chris Heinz for your prayer assessment it will be beneficial to all that come across this site.

  2. From Jack:

    You are right on target regarding prayer. If everything seems good we don’t pray. If we are to busy we don’t pray. If we don’t read the bible, we don’t pray. Prayer has been diminished greatly due to happiness, success at work, etc.

    I have found a great way to start back your prayer life. I am reading a chapter a day from a Max Lucado book. I read the chapter, pull out the salient points and pray about the points. This can be done with the bible as well. Choose a book a read a chapter a day and then pray over what you learned and your own thoughts and needs. I keep a diary on this for future reference.

    Takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. Oooopppps! There is the problem. Who can give up 30 or 60 minutes a day in this hectic life. Well, everyone has to search for something to cut out in order to do it.

    The easiest for me is the first thing each day.
