A friend of mine gave me this website and said: It’ll change your life. In my head and at that moment, I thought… What’s so great about it?? Until just a few moments ago. These last three years have been horrible. Since 2011-2013, I have lost three family members and a friend. My friend decided that suicide was the answer. Although, I don’t blame her for doing what she felt was right for her… I guess, I getting off subject. The point is this… Thank you for being available through via web.
Last night was horrible and I found myself wondering if God is actually seeing/hearing with what is taking place in my situation? So, I remembered… This website my friend suggest I listen to. I found it to be most comforting to my mind, body, and soul. It seems I’ve found a place to simply rest. Thank you once again.
Angie wrote us again, leaving this comment yesterday in the comment section of Meditation #2 – Find Rest O My Soul:
Once again, I found myself attending another funeral service just this last Tuesday. A very near and dear friend left this world to enter his Rest. He and his wife have been my friends for nearly over 20 years. My heart is overwhelmed to say the least. However, What gets me is the tremendous weight of Dave’s passing.
Right before receiving the news of my friends passing… I, myself was experiencing something heavy and hurtful. This and the news of Dave’s passing and knowing that his wife, Christina, would be in my human eyes… alone bent me backwards. So familiar death is to me. Down right bummer.
This morning I woke restless over many things that has surrounded me in these few weeks, months,and years even. I cried quietly… I need rest. At the moment your website came to the forefront on my mind. I scrolled down and saw this meditation which brought much comfort my way.
Thank you, thank you so very much, Ricky.
Thank you, for ministering to myself and countless others who simply need REST!

I am so glad I found your website. I have been through a period of ill health, which I still have, and the loss of my oldest son. I have been a Christian for over 30 years and have known the power of God in my life. But in recent years I have found it increasingly difficult to maintain my prayer life, both because of the way my ill health affects my ability to concentrate and also because of a sense of distance and grief since losing my son.
I have been using this morning meditation (#4 [New Every Morning]) for a couple of days now and have found it such a help. It helps me to concentrate on God and experience his healing presence. After the meditation I feel refreshed and find myself going on to into intercession. but this intercession is so different from the usual intercession. It comes from a sense of peace rather than a sense of striving.
