 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
Since the beginning of time, every man and woman has prayed -- with millions of prayers sent out from all corners of the earth every day. Why, then, are only a handful of them answered? What role do luck, chance, and fate play in our lives? How can we discover and live our destiny? These are the questions explored in this delightful, heart-tugging fable. Joseph Hutchinson is a man who knows the reality of tragedy all too well; his life has been filled with misfortune and adversity. A widowed father of two, living on a farm that is about to be taken from him, Joseph embarks on an unexpected journey that will bring him face-to-face with his greatest fears, and ultimately with his greatest discovery -- a mysterious wooden box hidden in his attic more than one hundred years earlier. This box, the Prayer Chest, contains the Three Secrets of Prayer that will change his life and the lives of everyone around him.
