The picture above was taken in 1973 while out cruising country roads and drinking in Oklahoma. The one on the right was taken just a few years later in Iowa. The Bottom picture on the right was taken when I made this CD in Henderson, Tenn.
I lived a fast, and sometimes dangerous life, traveling around the world and across the United States and Mexico. My family and friends may have thought I was doing fine, but l was good at hiding my hurts and feelings. There were many times all I could think was just wanting to end it all. I drove fast and lived on the edge and taking chances I shouldn't have. During this time, I had a gun misfire at point blank range & was almost killed in a bar room fight after being cut up and stabbed.

Covenant of Praise
By Harry Claytor
These songs were written, not with the intention of being published or shared, but the decision to share my testomonies in song were with hopes of helping and encourage others.
A while back I felt the urge to give a CD to a co-worker I just met. He called the next day and said my CD brought tears to his eyes and encouraged him. He had a alcohol and drug problem, lost his family and was living in his old truck just prior to that job. He is doing OK today and still calls me from time to time. On another occasion, I sang at a church I never been to before, and at alter call, there were several that came up for prayer. As we were leaving, one of the guys that went up for prayer came up to me and thanked me for my song. He was in drug court and had a problem with drugs and alcohol and said my song witnessed to him.
