One of the things that has most influenced my passion for prayer is the way that prayer has been the basis for every major revival or Great Awakening, prayer before-hand and prayer to sustain it. My wife, Georgette, & I have been active in Walk to Emmaus, and one of the things that makes that such an effective ministry is constant prayer throughout the weekend. This is also true of other similar movements.
Influences include Richard Lovelace, Don Mostrom, David Bryant, Bill Brownson and Peniel Bible Conference in Lake Luzerne, NY.
I am ordained, have served as a pastor for a number of years, and am now regaining my health after an illness and looking forward to whatever comes next.
