Ellen Chaksil began receiving messages from God after her initiation into a Catholic Charismatic prayer group. Nearly 30 years ago, the words, "When they are threatened with the loss of all this, only then will they turn to Me," sprang into Ellen's consciousness. She had a vision of chaos surrounding the steps of the Vatican's St. Peter's Basilica. She felt instinctively that humanity was threatened and she needed to share what she experienced with church officials.

Her quest led her from her home in Peckville, Pennsylvania to the Vatican. After numerous attempts, she was able to make contact. In 1992, she met Pope John Paul II and in 1996 she received official recognition that he had read her letter detailing the prophecy.

Seeking a way to prevent a future disaster, Ellen contacted Boguslaw Lipinski, Ph.D of Harvard Medical School. He provided hypothetical proof that when people gather to pray, energy is emitted. Armed with this scientific evidence, Ellen views her book as an instrument to educate people on the power of prayer. Only when the world is united in prayer can a power be generated great enough to forestall catastrophe and enable humanity's continued existence.
