Ann McNeals, Author

Ann created this site to share the power of prayer with Christians around the world!  She’s published hundreds of prayers on Grace and Prayers, published a book of prayers, and started a faith-focused clothing line. 

When she’s not writing, you can find her spending time with her husband, two sons, and her cat. 


Ann McNeals created Grace and Prayers in 2022 with a simple mission: help people connect with God through prayer. 

But her path to Jesus wasn’t a straight line, as is the case for many Christians. 

Ann wasn’t raised Christian and struggled with substance abuse throughout her teens and 20s.  Through a friend, she found a connection to prayer and that was the first time she truly understood His presence. 

She then decided to make Christ her passion, her love and her career. Ann pursued a BA and eventually a Master’s in Theology at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colorado which is near her hometown of Silverton. 

Ann has leveraged her personal experience with God and her education to create prayers that everyone can read and engage with. 

She’s also published a successful book of prayers and created a clothing line of prayer-focused clothing to help others connect with our God.
