Raised in a church-going family, the author was familiar with prayer: at bedtime, at meals, in church services, at the request of others, hoping it would help, but never actually seeing or experiencing specific, tangibly answered personal prayers, nor did he expect to. But late in life, that changed, and by age 62 he had discovered there is so much more in what Jesus taught his disciples than he had known. He sought and accepted that something more, followed by distinct changes of direction in his life, which he recorded. One major change was receiving answers to personal prayers. What kind of prayers? How were they answered? What helps? Based on his documented personal experience, this book presents the results of his search for patterns in answered prayers
