of Praise was
established in 1970 when Merlin Carothers began receiving
letters in response to his first book, Prison to Praise.
Merlin believes his calling from God is to get free books
into every state and federal prison in America, and into
as many city and county jails as possible.
The list of Foundation
of Praise activities
extends on to include:
Military personnel, hospital patients, crisis centers,
and missionary projects around the world.
Each year, the Lord increases our outreach. The opportunities
are great, and we rejoice to do everything we can to be God's
With God's help we will continue to reach those for whom
He gave His Only Son, Jesus.
