Looking for a book to lift your soul and your spirit? Reverend Dorothy Pierson has compiled such a work. Dorothy’s self-published book, Keeping Close in Prayer, is a compilation of her articles which have appeared in her and her husband’s Prove Me Now ministry newsletters over the past few years. The Piersons began their Prove Me Now ministry after leaving their ministry in Sacramento, California, and relocating to Bremerton, Washington.
They were seeking a way to keep in touch with the many dear ones to whom they had ministered in their Sacramento TV show ministry—dear ones that Dorothy often refers to as her and Phil’s “family.” Through a Spirit-orchestrated connection, the newsletter ministry came into being and Dorothy’s desire of “keeping close in prayer” with the “family” was a reality. Dorothy’s articles are fascinating vignettes of events in her and Phil’s life where a spiritual principle is fully manifest. These little stories span events from their former ministries in Hawaii through Sacramento and Seattle and culminating in their return home to Unity Village.
Those who know Dorothy personally can hear her voice as one reads each article. Most of the articles are accompanied by a poem which relates to the spiritual principle that Dorothy has awakened in your heart. Yes, there is a poet in Dorothy and it comes out loud and clear. The book has several pages of photos of those who have been connected to the Piersons and their ministries. There is even an index of “who’s who” for those of us who “know that face” but just can’t quite recall the name.
Ahhh … sweet memories. That is what this book is all about and it is about connection—connection to all those in our lives who have made a difference. After all, we are only a prayer away to keep close.
