Prayers For Progress by Elsie Nene Obed
I was sitting in the home of dear friend a year ago following ministry at a writer's summit, when I had the pleasure of picking up a book entitled, Prayers of Progress: A Compilation of Spiritual Prayers For A Victorious Christian Life, by Elsie Nene Obed
I couldn't wait to call Pastor Elsie and let her know they'd arrived.

Over the next 20 years, she trained and worked as a pioneer church planter and pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Nigeria and North America.
