Praying Our Fathers: the Secret Mercies of Ancestral Intercession

Your beloved dead care for you just as much now as when you could embrace them in life. And when your heart aches and the stresses of this life swirl about, you can be connected with them through the precious bond of prayer. This book empowers you with the knowledge of how to draw upon the love that never died from the hearts of the dead.
In this book you will learn that more than three thousand years ago, a man dropped down upon the graves of his ancestors and uttered a simple prayer. It was a prayer of desperation while he was facing a crisis in his life. But the style and type of prayer he offered then faded into near oblivion over time.
