    "My prayers started to change" - Demetrie's story

    "My prayers started to change" - Demetrie's story

    "The catalyst, the breaking point, of me changing my life was me sitting on the side of a road one day and telling God that I accept this is going to be my life because you won't answer my prayer. "
    Demetrie grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Hear him describe how, in recovery, his prayers started to change from telling God what to do to asking for God's will to be done, and how he's found the transformation he was always looking for.   
    Produced by Will Kapfer and Vic King. Music is Fifteen Street by Blue Dot Sessions and Thank You by Walter Hawkins.
