I am both honored and humbled to write this foreword for my son’s book, Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life. This book is evidence that prayer truly does work.
Horace Jr. probably doesn’t remember that I, along with seven other women, also wrote a book. My chapter was on prayer. Prayer has been the mechanism God has used to tug on me since I was in grade school. I grew up watching women of God meet every Tuesday morning to do nothing but pray for many hours. They knew how to cry out to God.
This wonderful gift that God has given us is how the Designer of hearts turns man to His will. As Solomon says in Proverbs 21:1, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, like rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wills.” 1 I believed that if God could turn a king’s heart, surely Horace Jr.’s was no match for Him either.
Horace Jr. fought against the hand of the Lord for many years, but now God is his delight. It is truly amazing how the Lord orchestrates our lives to His honor and glory. God says that He knows the plans He has for us in Jeremiah 29:11. Writing has been a passion of Horace’s since he was in high school. What a blessing to see God use this passion to advance His kingdom.
To all the mothers, fathers, and grandparents reading this book, don’t ever give up on your children. Pray, pray, pray, and leave the rest to God!
