Although Truman Capote’s last, unfinished novel offers a devastating group portrait of the high and low society of his time. Tracing the career of a writer of uncertain parentage and omnivorous erotic tastes, Answered Prayers careens from a louche bar in Tangiers to a banquette at La Côte Basque, from literary salons to high-priced whorehouses. It takes in calculating beauties and sadistic husbands along with such real-life supporting characters as Colette, the Duchess of Windsor, Montgomery Clift, and Tallulah Bankhead. Above all, this malevolently finny book displays Capote at his most relentlessly observant and murderously witty.
In 1992, God had placed a vision in a grandmother's heart that if I would come to Johnson Street and teach the Bible to children His Word would supernaturally change their lives. She did not know when she asked me teach that one little boy in the first Bible Club would name the ministry Keeping Hope Alive, and it would become a non-profit Christian organization. The ministry would travel the world teaching children in orphanages and in the slums of Kenya about God's love, seeing over five-thousand children give their hearts to Jesus and touched by God's Presence. She did not know that when children start to pray that murders stop, parents get off drugs, and families are restored. The vision of one grandmother, Virginia Barbee, changed the world for Jesus. This book tells the stories of how God came and answered the prayers of the children with supernatural healings and miracles.

Slim, blond, stylish, Faith has a life many would envy. Overcoming a childhood marked by tragedy, married to a successful investment banker and having raised two grown daughters, Faith has enjoyed her role as mother and wife, and the good life that emanates from their bustling Manhattan town house. But every step of the way, Faith has carried within her a secret she could divulge to no one. And with it, she has kept an even more painful secret from herself. For Faith, it is the sudden death of her stepfather—a man who, like her husband, Alex, always remained just beyond her reach—that will touch off a journey of change and revelation. At the funeral, painful memories flood back—and an old friend reenters Faith’s life. Faith is greeting mourners, when she hears a voice behind her and a single word that brings a quick smile to her face: “Fred.” Only one person aside from her older brother, Jack, called her that. Brad Patterson was Jack’s best friend, a long, lanky boy who teased, tormented, and protected Faith when they fancied themselves “The Three Musketeers” as kids. When Jack died years later, Faith and Brad came together again in their common, inconsolable grief, then lost touch once more amid the demands of families and busy lives a continent apart. Now a lawyer in California, Brad has reentered Faith’s life just as she is making a decision that plunges her marriage into crisis. Determined to fulfill a long-held desire for a career of her own, Faith applies to law school against her husband’s wishes, igniting a barrage of anger and recrimination. Faith’s only solace is the correspondence she has begun with Brad, a man trapped in an empty marriage of his own, a friend she once lost and has found again. Soon e-mails are flying between them, bridging three thousand miles, sharing much-needed friendship, support, laughter. And as these two childhood friends rediscover each other, something extraordinary is beginning to happen. In the safety of their friendship, Brad will find the courage to make a decision he should have made years before. And Faith, too, is changing, beginning to believe in herself—and in her right to grab hold of her dreams. Gathering a strength she never knew she had, Faith is finally ready to face the most painful step of all: of sharing the secret that has long been haunting her, and truly opening up her heart for the first time in her life. With unerring insight into the hearts of husbands and wives, lovers and families, Danielle Steel tells a wise and moving story of the secrets that wound and the choices that heal—and of the second chances that come only once in a lifetime.

Prayer is a two way communication between man and God. Christians commune with God through Prayer, but most Christians complain that they don't receive answers to their prayers. The KEY TO ANSWERED PRAYERS is very simple and it has only one name, it is called COMMUNICATION. It is not your length of prayers that matters, what matters is are you communicating? Imagine picking up your cell phone to make a call, the only way for you to be able to communicate with the person on the other side is to ensure that you have a dialing tone, and that there is a communication link available, to signify you have access to the receiver, without these in place you can't communicate nor even get a response. In this book you will learn the art of effective communication, the proper channel to link heaven directly and get rapid answers to your prayers. You will also learn how to walk under an open heavens every second, every minute, every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and continually till Jesus comes.
God presents Himself in the Bible as being open and interested in hearing whatever concerns His children (James 5:13; 1 Pet. 5:7). He wants to hear whatever interests us, even the smallest, most insignificant details of our lives. Consequently, we should feel free to unburden our hearts and tell God anything and everything. He is, after all, the friend who sticks closer than a brother. Why do we not feel at liberty to converse with Him just as casually and comfortably as we would with our most intimate acquaintance? To address this important phenomenon of talking to God, I felt the leading of the Lord to confront the matter of getting answers to our prayers. Unless you are a Pharisee standing in the marketplace, no one prays just to hear himself praying or to receive glory from man. No one prays not to receive a response. No one asks, not expecting to receive. Rather, prayers are prayed to be acknowledged and answered. Especially prayers without ceasing are made for responses, acknowledgment, and answers, without ceasing. Time and maturity have taught me that to pray without ceasing basically refers to recurring prayer, not nonstop talking. Thus, it is to be our way of life, as we should be continually in an attitude of prayer.
As I was being led to document and share the miracles, signs and wonders that the Lord our God in heaven had allowed me to witness throughout my life, I wondered . what was the first miracle that God had allowed me to be a witness to? Then I remembered, my aaka ("aah kaa" is an Inupiaq word meaning mom, but is used by many to reference a grandmother). If it wasn't for the intercession of praying aaka's (grandmothers) and the grace of God answering their prayers, where would many of us grandchildren be? I give God all the glory for what he has done for me and my family. I believe one of Gods desires is for us to achieve the purpose that he created us for. May God Bless each and everyone of you.
