Young men and getting older men can benefit from a prayer the size of a peanut.
When you pray, it doesn't have to be long winded or take a lot of time.
Asking God for help can be a small prayer with large results.
Please pray that God would move upon the hearts of men to attend "How To Be A Great Dad."
George Washington Carver found over 300 uses for a peanut. George was a praying man who found answers to prayer through God. [Being a godly man, he prayed that God would reveal to him the secrets of the universe. He told his friends that God replied, "Little man, you're too small to grasp the secrets of the universe. But I will show you the secret of the peanut."] - Legacy of George Washington Carver
The causes of fatherlessness are many, the answer to the problems caused by fatherlessness is a Father's Love.
We're asking you to prayer a small peanut sized prayer that we believe can touch the lives of countless men, women and children. We've developed a program called "How To Be A Great Dad." It teaches men how to respect themselves, honor women and be responsible for their children. God has a plan and a purpose for families - a plan that includes fathers & mothers and sons & daughters.
Your prayer might be as small as this: "God please help men attend How To Be A Great Dad. Amen." This will take you about five seconds - a small amount of time, but your prayer has the potential to change billions of lives - that's the ripple effect of a peanut prayer. If you plant them, they will grow. Have faith in the field.

“Great Dads are born as they struggle and learn from their mistakes. Teachable men have the potential to become Great Dads. A Great Dad is simply a Father who loves his children and desires to know how to love them more.”
Men aren't born with a guide on how to be great dads. A dad is supposed to love children and respect women. It's fun to be a dad. It's challenging, and it takes effort. At this conference, you’ll learn how to be a dad your kids will follow as a good role model. You’ll learn how to honor women and partner with them in raising respectful children.

To the lonely he gives a family. To the prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy.”
