Greetings and God bless; I pray my words will find you well. I am grateful to live in a country where Jesus can be worshiped freely.

Forbidden Prayers is a fictionalized story yet based entirely on actual events. (Formerly known as Desert Found Faith)

After a tortured and fearful life in America, Olivia is anxious to escape an abusive and destructive husband. In a desperate attempt to rid herself of him, Olivia makes a naÔve alliance with his family who lives overseas. The family has heard the disturbing news about their sonís illegal activities, his problems with the government, and the numerous warrants issued against him. Olivia agrees to take her husband to Malta for a wedding; once there the family will take her husband back to his homeland and she and her children will be free to return to America.

In her weakened state, Olivia becomes violently ill and is unable to protect her children. She watches helplessly as her children are used as pawns and their beauty and America heritage further her husbandís quest for power and lust for money.

However, once she enters foreign soil she is tricked into entering an oppressed Islamic society. Held in Libya against her will; Olivia tries to escape numerous times and each time she is caught and punished. Heart broken and dejected one evening while in the Sahara Desert, Olivia calls out to her God and surrenders her life and will back to the God she had known as a child. But in doing so she fears her death is imminent; Olivia fervently teaches her children about Jesus using stories and songs she had learned as a small child. Even her exotic and beautiful children know the dangers of mentioning the name of Jesus in an Islamic society; to pray to any other God besides Allah is forbidden. Olivia and her children pray and learn about Jesus in hiding realizing that at any moment they could be caught and punished, or even worse.
