In search of answered prayers

  • September 6, 2007

Roman Catholic journalist James Risdon is launching a Canada-wide appeal for examples of answered prayers. He hopes that people will write to him with their testimonials, which will serve as material for the book he is writing.

The book’s tentative title is Answered Prayers: Listening to God and His plan for our Lives.

Risdon, who lives in Bathurst, N.B., says he is “looking for faith in action.... When God answers a person’s prayer, that can change their life regardless of whether or not there’s been any sort of sign.”

Risdon is not just looking for miracles. Any example of answered prayer will do. He hopes his book will inspire and encourage people to live prayerful lives.

Risdon is currently contacting dioceses across Canada, looking for people who will write to him with their stories. Anyone who would like to do so is asked to write to: Answered Prayers, PO Box 330, Bathurst, N.B., E2A 3Z2. For more information call (506) 545-7192.
