Item description for 101 Stories Of Answered Prayers by Jeannie St John Taylor & Petey Prater...
Overview God answers thousands of prayers for every believer who calls out to Him. Think of all the little ways we shoot requests heavenward throughout every day. Protect my daughter as she plays soccer. Help me get over this cold. The problem is, though God answers when we pray, we often fail to recognize His work. Or else we pray such vague prayers we can't prove God did anything. Occasionally we pray specifically enough that we can see His answers. Other times, God opens a window into His workings so we can actually understand how He responds to our prayers, or He enables us to perceive obvious answers we don't usually notice, and our faith is increased. This book contains true accounts of times God allowed pray-ers to see answers. We offer these stories as praise to God. Written in ink, on paper, they won't be easily forgotten. As you read them, you will not only be encouraged to pray more; you may ask God to open your eyes to His answers. And He'll do it, of course.

More About Jeannie St John Taylor & Petey Prater
Jeannie launched her writing career in 1998 with a co-authored children s book
from""Multnomah Press that was a finalist for the Gold Medallion Award"." Since its release, she has signed contracts with eight publishers, and her writing has appeared in several magazines and short story collections. You can find fourteen books by her adult-level books on the subject of prayer, children s picture books, and a youth novel in bookstores around the world. Three more books are already completed and waiting at the publisher for a 2006 release and she is currently preparing to fulfill another six book contracts.
In 2003 Jeannie s focus took an unexpected turn when two publishers asked her to illustrate for them. Her first written "and" illustrated children s book "Am I Praying?", Kregel, August 2003, was a finalist for the 2004 Gold Medallion Award. Kregel featured a miniature golf course based on the book s characters at the 2004 Christian Booksellers Convention in Atlanta. Jeannie has illustrated eleven books and is currently working on her twelfth.
Early in 2004, a series of brief radio spots on prayer that Jeannie wrote and recorded began airing on an American Family Radio station in Dothan, Alabama.
Gifts she designs for Mt. Baker Trading Company can be found in Christian bookstores and on the Internet. Her Prayer Stones have been reordered several times and all royalties from them go to an orphanage in Mexico.
In February 2006 she wrote and illustrated "No Ordinary Woman", a make-you-cry booklet intended to convince women of their incredible value. Because she self-published it to keep costs low, it is available only by contacting her directly.
A professional artist as well as a writer, illustrator, and teacher, Jeannie s paintings have hung in several galleries in Oregon and even traveled to Texas for a special museum show. Jeannie travels around the states speaking to women s groups and schools. She also teaches at writers conferences and works as a freelance editor -- most recently editing eight books for Kregel and a two fantasy novels for AMG Publishers. In her spare time, she works as a private investigator for Taylor Made Financial Investigations, a company owned by her husband Ray, a retired Federal Criminal Investigator.
Born and raised in the Midwest, Jeannie earned a degree in Elementary Education from Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois, then moved to Oregon to teach art and English in the small town of Yamhill. Jeannie s education continued in Portland, Oregon with a Masters Degree from Lewis and Clark College as well as an extra year of art credits from Portland Community College and Portland State University. She lives with her husband of twenty-nine years, ten minutes from downtown Portland, Oregon on a five-acre cattle farm surrounded by subdivisions. She and Ray have three grown children.

encouragement to pray and see God's answers even more! Jul 24, 2007
I picked up this book in our church library and loved the true stories of how God has answered the prayers of the family and friends of these two women. More than anything else, this book encouraged me to pray in exact terms for the needs I or my loved ones had and then to trust Him and watch to see how He would answer and meet the needs. I loved the book so much that I e-mailed one of the authors, Jeannie, and shared with her some of my own answers to prayer which in themselves were pretty amazing. I have to admit I also questioned the time element of one of the stories and after several e-mail exchanges between us with her thinking I must live in South Africa as many of her readers live there, we found that we lived less than a mile of each other and have since met and have prayed for some of each other's personal needs. This author doesn't just write about answered prayers, she models it in every e-mail when she writes out her prayer for me in the need I just shared with her or when she just takes time to visit and talk about the Lord and knowing Him through prayer. I highly recommend this book for a healthy dose of faith boosting!
Uplifting Mar 15, 2006
This book gave the stories of answered prayers. When I got discouraged in my prayers, I picked up this book and read a few of the stories. It uplifted my spirit and gave me hope to continue to pray.
Build Your Faith Feb 10, 2004
This book is a real faith-builder. Although we believe by faith that God answers prayer, it's great to have a resource like this that helps our faith by relating wonderful stories about God's loving hand in the lives of the faithful.
The accounts are beautifully written to bring out the reality of God's design and to emphasize the spiritual impact that each story deserves.
My family has used the book for our devotional times. It helps our children see that God takes notice when we fall to our knees in prayer.
inspirational Dec 5, 2002
The short stories in this book are encouraging, and heart warming. The author has the ability to condense very powerful true stories into just a few pages, making it easy to read and a great gift book. We laughed and we cried.
