National Prayer Garden
August 15, 2011

According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, the National Prayer Garden has ZERO ASSETS & ZERO REVENUE. This organization has a Post Office Box in Welcome, MD, yet it does not own any property and as a Blog it cannot solicit donations.

According to the Maryland Tax Assessment site, Edak Eyo and Kayode Peter own a $699K home located at Mason Springs Road! Where did they acquire this amount of money? Donations to the Prayer Garden or from "fellow Nigerians"????

From the NPG blog:

“We thank God for the corporate donations that have made this possible. Through faith all things are possible”


Just WHO are those “corporate” donors? Construction Resolutions? The Faux Group? Lawrence Abell and Associates? Steve Scott Law Group? Cleaners of America? Kenneth Copeland Ministries?

Why are "corporate donors" even interested in this event, unless they have future "plans" for the RESORT COMPLEX??

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Have conducted extensive research of this organization

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close the P.O. Box and stop trying to portray itself as a charity, which it is NOT

General Member of the Public & Resident of Charles County.

National Prayer Garden

YET AGAIN, ANOTHER EXAMPLE of a "Prayer Garden" RESORT supporter who is either UNWILLING OR UNABLE TO ANSWER ANY OF THE QUESTIONS OR ADDRESS THE FACTS...

DOES THE "PRAYER GARDEN" ORGANIZATION HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE?

WILL ANYONE FROM THE PRAYER GARDEN ORGANIZATION ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?

1. WHO IS PROVIDING THE MONEY FOR THE PRAYER GARDEN TO MAKE THE MONTHLY $100,000.00 PAYMENTS FOR THE LAND??

2. Is the Prayer Garden receiving "donations" from a foreign investor or a televangelist?

3. Since the Project Manager for the Prayer Garden is a LOCAL DEVELOPER who "happens" to live in Charles County, I wonder if there's a "financial incentive" for him personally to insure this resort is built?

4. IS KAYODE PETER REALLY A CHRISTIAN -- OR IS HE A MUSLIM?

5. IS THE "PRAYER GARDEN" A MUSLIM ORGANIZATION DISGUISED AS "CHRISTIAN" so as not to raise "suspicions"?

6. IS THERE A NIGERIAN "CONNECTION"?

If the organization is unable or unwilling to provide answers to these questions, why would anyone donate?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Have not received answers to these questions from the organizations' leadership.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Reconsider its' plans for what is obviously a commercial business rather than a simple, innocent "Prayer Garden".
