When we launched the Power Of Prayer, we never imagined the impact the series would have. Back then, as today, the idea for the series was pretty basic. Our goal was to examine the role faith and spirituality plays in the lives of East Texans.
Our reports were never designed to examine the origins or validity of faith, rather, how those who do believe make it the essence of who they are. We choose prayer as a center piece because of its universal appeal.
Prayer is the one that seems to cross almost all religious, denominational, racial, social and ethnic boundaries.
Our stories sometime focus on the miraculous, but more often they center on how East Texans use their faith for strength in facing the task of day to day living. Our stories are not designed to judge or dismiss but simply share.
Share the heartfelt, intimate and personal stories of what faith has done in the lives of East Texans.
If you have a story you would like to share look for the comment box at the bottom of this page. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions and thanks for visiting our Power of Prayer page.
