About the Book

The glaring question here is what does Prayer have to do with whatever Scoutmaster is. This book is the effort to show that they, indeed, are one and the same. From the Oath, “On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country” to the last point of the Scout Law being Reverent, Williams examines the in’s and out’s of the intricacies of prayer: How to listen, how to help others listen and the temptations that have plagued mankind from the beginning to look elsewhere for his answers when, indeed, they are as “close as breathing and nearer than hands or feet.” One may have little knowledge of the Boy Scouts of America, but what you see in this definition of prayer will either confirm your faith or challenge you to grow in the exercise of the same.


About the Author

The author holds the Master of Divinity degree from Duke Divinity School and the Silver Beaver Award in the Boy Scouts of America. After serving thirty-four years in the ministry of the United Methodist Church, the author and his wife Beverly have retired to live in a small modest home in Greensboro, North Carolina, where they deeply enjoy their little hideaway. He is an avid sailor, and on Monday’s, he can be found on the nearby lake hoisting the sail and manning the jib with his wife. The author’s goals are to continue to hike the Appalachian Trail, finish several writing projects, and shoot his age in a round of golf.
