Frank Pratley

Profession: Scientist (Radiochemist)

Frank is a workaholic scientist, who despite spending many years around the theological world did not believe in the possibility of having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Frank raised his daughter from an early age on his own. He has been suicidal and survived three near death experiences.

He found the Lord in 2006 in a nuclear scientist’s office and subsequently attending a Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship Dinner Meeting in Warrington. He soon became a member of FGB. Whilst critically ill with a brain infection in hospital in December 2007, fellow FGB Members came and prayed over him in A&E. During one of these prayer sessions, Frank had a vision of Calvary. This vision has been commissioned as a painting and was launched in 2010 as Easter cards. He is convinced that the power of prayer saved him from death in that hospital bed.

One of his greatest regrets is that he did not find the lord 50 years ago! Although life is still tough on occasions, he now finds that his faith in the lord, with mentoring from his FGB brothers, gives him real peace.
