Visualizing the

Shape of Prayer

—— Dr. James R. Kok

The vision of the Care and Kindness Campaign that Jim Kok teaches is to awaken people to how simple it is to make the world better.

How possible it is for every single person to do things that make a difference to the people around them.

When you think about it, why do you suppose we continually make things more complicated than they need to be? Why does it seem so easy to overlook the simple things?

You can do the simple things—most people can do the simple things. Actually, EVERYBODY can do the simple things. So why do we scoff at things that are simple?
In our culture, I fear that the word ‘simple’ means something that is easily overlooked or dismissed.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t have to BE monumental to have a monumental impact. You don’t have to go to a third-world country! You don’t have to be another Mother Theresa! You don’t have to organize another soup kitchen in your community! Those things are all wonderful, and it is necessary that some people do those kinds of things, but if they’re not in your nature, or in your calling, don’t despair. Don’t feel like a ‘second best’ citizen.

Gentle offers of kindness, in a myriad of little ways, affect others deeply. So, let’s be kind! Simple things make a difference. They very often make a BIG difference.


Dr. James R. Kok has written a definitive resource detailing the key essentials in becoming a more caring person in his latest book, “The Miracle of Kindness” (available on, in either paperback or Kindle edition.) A handful of basic tools —wrapped in courage—are the secret to changing the world through intentional acts of kindness.

As the Koach Of Kare, Dr. Kok was pastor at the Crystal Cathedral for 29 years as head of the Care Ministry department. He is the author of six books and numerous articles, and he is the founder of the Conference on Care and Kindness.
