Psalm 116:1-8
The Prayers of the Falling

I Love the Lord because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,therefore,will I call upon him as long as I live.The sorrows of death compassed me,and the pains of hell gat hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;yea., our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

What are we about?
Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Rev. Alan Chris Parker, the founder of Hedges and ByWays of life Ministry in Richmond/Henrico, Virginia and Vicinity where we are spiritually called to help, assist and provide the necessary dynamics that will cause positive change in an individual’s life and in the community.
Hedges and ByWays of Life Ministry exists to become not only an information center for many in the community but will enable others to gain access to programs that will help them to become whole and important to themselves, their families and a valuable asset to their community and this city. Hedges and Byways of Life Ministry also will help in providing needed services and develop programs that will include meaningful solutions to an individual’s life, causing them to become more responsible and productive.

Too often those who are seen less productive and without hope are the many who for many reasons began this malingering of being less competitive in a society which requires an act of determination in order to achieve successful results.
Many impoverished communities must also reach an awakening level of independence and self reliance. To do this they will need the help of Hedges and Byways of Life Ministry along with others who provide a hand up instead of a hand out.

It is increasingly important that those who have lost hope engage  in meaningful conversation that will cause a different attitude and outlook on their present situation and condition. In order for one to leave a situation of lack they must make a conscious effort to move forward toward a situation of empowerment which will permanent change their life and situation.

Through our Help/Save program at Hedges and ByWays of Life Ministry we will help many to understand that we are responsible for actions and the choices that we make. . The world  which we live, does not mandate a status quot society, but instead we are given a set of choices that causes both negative and positive results.

At Hedges and Byways of Life Ministry we will help those who have made bad choices understand that all bad choices can be reversed as long as there is a commitment to change.
As we forge forward in this ministry we are forever reminded what Paul told the church in Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me".

Welcome to Hedges and ByWays of Life Ministry.
