"I felt I was in a group of believers as I prayed. I felt God’s presence and power over me. I think that God is pleased when His people prayerfully call on Him and because He loves us so much and wants the best for us. I feel an urgency to pray more and to move the world out and God in when I talk to Him."
- Joyce

"Thank you for John Lind’s guided prayer audio. My three-and-a-half year old daughter and I listen to this and pray together. It helps me know how to pray and allows me to introduce my daughter to praying for our country. It is great that I can stop it and explain things to her as needed."
