Love and commitment never change, and neither does the power of prayer. This book offers inspiration to those who need encouragement in their current circumstances.
“I have no other answer to the fantastic life that followed my navy career except my mother’s constant prayer. A petition does not have to be a pious exercise seeking favors from God. It can be an honest conversation looking for favorable action from God.” In The Power of a Mother’s Prayer: The Life Story of D. Ralph Young, you will laugh with Ralph as he tells the heart-felt stories he encountered during his lifetime, cry with him about the numerous sad events he endured, travel with him to the many corners of the globe, and finally sit back to a good read as he describes his many friends, relatives, and co-workers throughout his eighty plus years of living.
D. Ralph Young was born in Kentucky in the mid-1920s and grew up on a farm in central Kentucky. He spent his years there before entering World War II and served in the Pacific Theater as a Gunner’s Mate on the USS J. Franklin Bell. After marriage and a college degree from the University of Kentucky, he and his family spent forty or so years in St Louis in between their stints in Thailand, Malaysia, Oman, Iran, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia where he practiced his career as a power engineer. He retired (several times) to Greasy Ridge Road in Central Kentucky, his birthplace, to establish an orchard. Currently, he spends his time traveling back and forth between his homes in SW Ohio and Kentucky with his new wife. This is his life story.
