This book has changed my prayer life. Raybon writes with shocking honesty about her own foibles, but the hope she generates for a powerful prayer life is the result.

Raybon learned, though, that prayer isn't so much about what we get as about who we become.

In "I Told The Mountain To Move", Patricia writes about her spiritual journey. Each chapter is a lesson, and yet the book reads somewhat like a diary, where Patricia is both describing the events from her life and going over what she has learned, what she is working on, and where she's still experiencing challenge, praying for help, as well as forgiveness where she felt short. And while describing her spiritual struggles, challenges and victories, she also quotes Richard Foster, Andrew Murray and other authors.

I Told the Mountain to Move. My daddy wouldn’t say n. o, you can’t be a writer. I’ll write for life, I told myself-never dreaming I’d just chosen a kind of heaven. My First White Friend. No, you can’t climb a mountain. No, you’re a brown-skin girl in a color-struck world. So go for something safe. Or a certain hell? Giving your life to something tough and crazy is, for sure, a wild and rocky journey. So Daddy tempered it. He mixed in Jesus. Instead, he piled us in the Dodge and drove us to a little Denver church where Daddy sang in the choir and Mama taught Sunday school.
