Somebody Prayed for Me

24 Nov

Xpress Yourself Publishing presents a collection of heartwarming stories and poetry that are sure to touch your hearts, uplift your spirits and ignite your soul.

Allyson M. Deese opens this spiritual experience with the title piece, “Somebody Prayed For Me,” a heartfelt poem that reminds us of the importance of prayer. There are so many things we could have been in life but somebody prayed for you and for me. And now we must pray for others because prayer does change things.

In “Silent Cries,” Linda R. Herman shares the tale of a teen-aged mother who suffers abuse and rape at the hands of the person she loves. Rape is devastating at any age, but imagine a seventeen year-old girl struggling to get past the pain. With prayer, it is possible.

Tinisha N. Johnson’s “Facing Reality” opens our eyes to how much our children are influenced by our actions. A mother tries to drown her sorrows in alcohol but doesn’t realize the affect her behavior has upon her twelve-year-old daughter until she makes a shocking discovery.

Every piece was written from the author’s heart, in hopes of inspiring and reminding everyone of the importance of prayer.
