3. Prayer never fails

PRAYER NEVER FAILS is a gripping legal drama about an up-and-coming high school basketball coach on his way to a record number of wins when he is fired after he risks everything for a player suffering at home. From Writer/Director Wes Miller, and starring Nick Lashaway (IN TIME) and Minister and Actor Clifton Davis (ANY GIVEN SUNDAY), this story follows the journey of a coach destined to claim his God given calling. Wes Miller chronicles how from termination to redemption, the single act of prayer leads to the realization that one man will do anything for the students that mean so much to him and that same act will redeem another man who has lost his way.
