The Power of Prayer in Making Life Choices
How he did it and how you can, too.
William Ray Houston was twenty-six years old when he knelt by the side of his bed and prayed aloud. He addressed his prayer to the Holy Spirit, firmly believing that Jesus Christ had ascended to the right hand of the Father and that He had sent a Comforter to be within those who had accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. Having been born again at a young age, William learned that including God in his decisions and allowing the Holy Spirit to direct his path often opened doors that he could not have known about. From where he lived and worked to choosing the right wife, William always called on the Lord and was often led in simple, but sometimes almost miraculous, ways. Part Two of He Prayed is a deliberately simple explanation of how he did it and how you can, too!
George E. Winters describes himself as a “simple” man who has led a quiet life. Those who know him describe him as a man with a true heart for helping people in ways that make a difference. His caring, godly spirit touches people in ways that not only bring peace and hope but can be truly life changing when they have “ears to hear.” Now he shares his autobiographical outline of the life of William Ray Houston to demonstrate the power of a prayer-filled life that belongs to Jesus Christ.
Mr. Winters graduated from Southern Methodist University (SMU) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration. He is retired and lives with his wife in North Texas.
