“This excellent introduction to successful Christian writing gives the beginner an intimate glimpse into the life of a genuine pro.” Sherwood Wirt, Author and Editor, Decision Magazine

This handy guide for public prayer is more than just a book of prayers to memorize. It is designed to help the speaker set the tone of the prayer as well as give him or her the proper thoughts. Shown before each prayer is a delightful cartoon of the positive character, Kit-Cat, to bring a smile to your face and set the mood for a lighthearted exhortation. Not only are the prayers thoughtful and unique but this self-guide is very organized and easy to use. After all, one may only have a few minutes warning before being sent “on-stage.” And it’s just the right size to fit in a brief case or purse.
