Prayer is fundamental to the life of faith. At the heart of prayer is intimate fellowship with God. Yet many seem to view prayer as just another religious activity to engage in, not really knowing whether God will answer or not.
In this book, Pastor McClinton E. Porter provides many thought-provoking insights and practices that will create a desire in you to develop a lifestyle of consistent communion and fellowship with God. The contents are presented in a conversational tone and practical manner that makes prayer “doable” and perceives God as approachable, not austere and condemning.
Some of the topics addressed in this volume are:
- Prayer and Faith
- The Covenant Names of God in Prayer
- Prayer and Worship
- Prayer in the Spirit
Use this book for yourself and then with a small group, encouraging others to find this place of prayer. One of the disciples who observed Jesus’ prayer life asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…” With God’s help, Rev. Porter is doing just that and you can continue to do likewise for others. The anticipated result is a “Fruitful Prayer Life.”

I have long felt proud (and lucky) to be an American Citizen. One of the sources of that pride had been America’s reputation for the wholesome administration of justice. However, long after I qualified as a senior citizen I was shocked to discover what I identify as a “Widespread and Callous Indifference to the Realization of Justice among those Responsible for the Administration of Justice” in my own world. Our Scales of Justice are Out of Whack!
My late-in-life education relating to this serious social disorder followed from my extensive personal engagement with justice administration operatives ranging from an unranked police officer through to a State Supreme Court Justice while touching every station in between. I am persuaded that my fellow citizens should become aware that this sorry situation can be real. That’s what this vigorous book is all about.
I seek with this book to expose shortcomings in justice administration practice that l have personally observed to be neither uncommon, nor insubstantial, nor generally acknowledged within the justice administration culture, nor widely recognized outside it. My ultimate goal is to motivate or provoke (or embarrass) justice administration practitioners into more seriously contemplating the unfortunate impact of justice administration indifference on the actual realization of justice and to promote justice administration practices that better foster the realization of justice. My book includes several simple specific proposals for re-tuning justice administration practice.
How My Mission Started — Late on Christmas Eve, 2002 a huge thug who hated my guts with a passion broke into my standing car (with me in the driver’s seat), robbed two traffic control cones I was transporting and, in an ensuing tantrum, assaulted my car with the cones he robbed. Unbeknownst to me at the scene the thug induced the abusive, gullible, responding police officer, with whom he had negotiated two hours earlier, to ultimately charge me with hitting the thug with my car. That rogue policeman gave me no hint of that intention at the scene and forcibly prevented me from engaging witnesses at the scene.
My Continuing Education — That was the first in a systemic series of five justice system breakdowns, all instigated by the same thug, that introduced me, late in life, to that “Widespread and Callous Indifference” I cited above. This awareness followed from my extensive personal engagement with justice administration operatives ranging from rogue cop to State Supreme Court Justice.
My Remedial Proposals — My exposures and assessments thereof ultimately led me to propose to Connecticut’s nine-judge Rules Committee of the Superior Court some very simple modifications to judicial administration practice that I’m persuaded would significantly reduce the likelihood that other socially competent but judicially naive parties would have their welfare compromised by justice administration shortfalls as did I.
However, I encountered a dedicated indifference in all parts of the system, conspicuously including the robed contingents, assignable in my judgment to what I have classified as the Royal Priesthood Syndrome. My specific relevant experience took place in the State of Connecticut but I sense that the cited Syndrome is cultural and, to one degree or another, impacts the administration of justice throughout the nation.
A Stunning Discovery — My associated research has exposed the startling fact that the very organization of Connecticut’s judicial operations is INconsistent with the state’s constitution even though Connecticut claims, on its auto license plates, to be the “Constitution State”!
But nobody seems to givadamn! My personal exposures have convinced me that remedial measures will never spontaneously arise from within the system, itself. System folk seem content with their lot with no one wanting to rock the boat. Improvement will have to be provoked from outside the system.
About the Bio
About Me — I am, by inclination, education and long-time practice, an engineer (BSME MIT 1946) with a passion for precise, lucid, technical reporting. I have spent the bulk of my professional life in the space and defense business, contributing significant literature to the technical trades, and I’m proud to be responsible for several significant technical innovations in the field (I hold an Air-Force sponsored patent on a Space Vehicle Landing Gear).
Late in my professional career I “switched gears” and served for a quarter century as the engineering half of an Architecture & Engineering partnership.
Throughout my career I’ve had a passion for precision and virtue and I have here sought to apply that disposition to communicating an important story to my neighbors with readable prose backed up by extensive, verbatim reproductions of actual relevant correspondence between myself and justice system parties.
I pray for your serious attention.$19.99 Select options
Have you ever wondered how we age and why we get sick? Trafficking, the third book in a trilogy that includes Hazing Aging and Rejuvenation!, exposes the chronic inflammatory underworld and how it does its dirty business to transform end organ interstitial spaces into a sea of diseases. The book clarifies how this transition is evoked, how it disables the signaling apparatus of the protective capillary cells, and then proceeds to dismantle all of the cells within the interstitial space that capillaries are friendly to. In the end, after mission accomplished, the interstitial space footprint now belongs to chronic inflammation and the anti-organ. In this final apocalypse, capillary cells have long since stopped dancing, and their feedback loop signals to the allied partners have been replaced by rogue influences. White blood cells, cytokines, platelets, and immunoglobulins within the darkened corners of end organ interstitial spaces now belong to chronic inflammation. The interstitial spaces becomes barren and lifeless as we no it. A perfect backdrop for disease venues, pain, fatigue and aging. It is not too long afterword, that the end organ takes a slit to the throat.$2.99–$35.82 Select options
