I wrote these prayers when I was a young adult growing up in Miami. As with any big city, drugs, sex and violence were part of everyday life.Becoming a teenager in our ever-changing world is a challenge for parents and children alike. In many ways, both are trying to discover each other and, above all, themselves. Temptation and evil is everywhere, and without a solid foundation of God and morality, everything can rapidly spin out of control.I was blessed to have gotten to know God at an early age. I went to youth groups, retreats, and helped out at our local church, where I also attended school. Everything changed when I became a freshman in high school. Morality and fun collided. Girls, parties, hangouts, fitting in, and everything else that goes with growing up began to take root.This collection of prayers is a reflection of those thoughts and experiences. They helped me come closer to God when the world around me was telling me to run in the opposite direction. I hope and pray they give you guidance and help bring you closer to God.
