Aerospace Engineer Transformed after Praying to Jesus: Alex Jacob’s Story

For Alex Jacob, a highly successful Aerospace Engineer, life couldn't look better: A successful career, loving family, good friends, but below the surface loneliness and a feeling of disconnection was pulling him down.

Despite having given his life to Jesus at the tender age of 12, Alex felt that something was wrong. He felt discouraged, despite his faith, despite his material blessings. For Alex, this gaping void had lasted decades.

But one day, while watching 100 Huntley Street, Alex felt God leading him to call into the prayer lines — a prompting that would forever change his life for the better. From that day on, Alex started calling regularly. "I called in for many things, and there have just been many changes. God has been working. It's been amazing!" The one thing keeping Alex from living a meaningful life was a real relationship with Jesus. Alex tells Greg:


"The fundamental shift within was not by only hearing about God's teaching, but by understanding who Jesus is."

Alex began to know Jesus through the support of Crossroads/100 Huntley Street Prayer Partners.

With over 100 dedicated Prayer Partners and an average of 1,700 calls pouring into the prayer center daily, the prayer lines have become the beating heart of Crossroads, and a source of solace for suffering souls, like Alex's, in need of prayer. Alex Jacob is more than a case study — he is a strong validation that the power of prayer is alive. What touches callers the most is how much the Prayer Partners listen and ask questions.
