“Let Your Light so Shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.” Jesus in Matthew 5:16″
Thanks for stopping by. There are no accidents in God’s Kingdom, and neither is your reading this. Since coming to Christ in a jail cell in 1996, my mission of being in the center of God’s will for my life has taken me down many ministry paths. A former jockey nearly killed by gangsters after a botch fixed race, tens of thousands have either read my bio, “Ride The White Horse: A Checkered Jockey’s Story of Racing, Rage and Redemption,” seen or heard me relate it on numerous TV, radio shows, blog casts, and in the 45 prisons where I thus far spoken. It can be viewed here or on my popular end time prophecy YouTube channel, Eddie Donnally The Power of One. That is also the name of my weekly Christian TV Show that airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. EST on the easy downloadable app, Preach The Word. I believe that you in Jesus and Jesus in you is the power of one.
I have been an award-winning newspaper writer, horse racing TV show host and now an ordained minister with a Doctorate in Ministry and a hospital chaplain. I also raise funds for permanently disabled jockeys. Feel free to email me at email@example.com. I welcome the chance to personally correspond and pray for you.

Eddie Donnally has lived a most unusual life.
He is the only professional horse jockey to have won an Eclipse Award for Newspaper Writing and one who has been a television show producer, racing show host, professional fundraiser, ordained minister, and hospital and hospice chaplain. A jockey for 20-years, he rode in over 10,000 races at 54 tracks, winning an estimated 1,200. He was once indicted for sports bribery after a botched fixed race and threatened with death by Boston’s notorious Winter Hill Gang led by Whitey Bolger. In 1996, he was charged with Assault and after a miraculous conversion in a jail cell in Los Angeles County jail, was released and began his ministry career at the Los Angeles Dream Center. There, in less than five years, he became a licensed Foursquare Minister.
A former Eclipse Award winning journalist at the “Dallas Morning News,” he’s published over 100 articles in other newspapers and magazines, was an Associate Pastor at two Los Angeles Foursquare Churches and is an endorsed chaplain. He served as Director of Development for the Race Track Chaplaincy of America for eight years, and helped start several racetrack chaplaincy ministries that are active today. At RTCA, he founded the “White Horse Award,” given each year during Breeders’ Cup week to an underserved racing hero. He earned a Certificate in Fund Raising from UCLA, is an ordained minister with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, and holds a Doctorate of Ministry. In 2014, he and four other former jockeys founded Jockeys and Jeans, which to date has raised over $1.6 million for permanently disabled jockeys.
His story has been published in Wikipedia, ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Donnally numerous magazines, discussed on radio shows and he has appeared on many TV shows with his testimony featured on “The 700 Club.” He is a frequent speaker in churches, recovery conferences, and rehab centers. He shares his life as a checkered jockey, his sibling sexual trauma, and battles with an addiction to crack cocaine and same-sex promiscuity, and of course the supernatural jail cell miracle that put him in full-time ministry for 24-years. As a disaster chaplain he provided spiritual care following the earthquake in Haiti, tornados in Northern Alabama and Joplin MS, and on Staten Island following Superstorm Sandy. He and his wife Sandi live in Clearwater Florida where he works as a professional hospice and hospice chaplain and produces and hosts his weekly TV Show, “The Power of One.”

Freedom from Addiction
I believe Christ’s forgiveness can set anyone free from any addiction. I was once addicted to alcohol, marijuana, coke, crack cocaine and same sex encounters. God set me free from all. Much of it started in my youth when a relative abused me sexually. It’s all in my bio.
I was teaching a class on Healing from Sexual Abuse to a small group of prisoners in Texas when an inmate broke down in tears. The inmate I’ll call Tom began crying as he told his story of abuse. He had been kidnapped at nine, kept locked in a closet for months, only to be let out by his capturer to go to the bathroom, eat and be sexually assaulted. A Christian friend in the classroom explained that Tom had outbursts of temper that often ended in fights and they had worked to protect him. He and others walked to Tom and gave hugs; yes hugs in prison. We laid hands on Tom and prayed he would find healing.
Tom said it was the first time he had told his story. He had taken a dramatic first step, one that virtually all those abused sexually must take to heal. I arranged with the prison chaplain to counsel him and the chaplain said he would also have another professional provide counseling.
The training in 30 Texas prisons resulted in some 80 speaking of their abuse for the first time, an incredible breakthrough.
As a sexually abused youth, I too wound up in jail. Actually there is no greater indicator of incarceration; with some studies reporting up to 50% of men and 80% of women underwent sexual abuse.
I went back to school in my 60s to obtain a doctorate because I wanted to know what happened to me; divorce, substance abuse, inability to maintain relationships, depression and even a suicide attempt. All are predictable outcomes of sexual abuse. It is a subject I understand experientially, psychologically, and most of all spiritually. Christ healed me and He can heal you.
Feel free to download my teaching video on Healing From Sexual Abuse and share it with others who have been abused.
A written outline of the training I wrote on the healing I’ve taught in churches and to some 600 inmates can also be copied and printed.
Feel free to use both in helping others heal, and I am available to train you on how to teach this well proven, God inspired program.
You can also visit the Lindell Recovery Network (https://lindellrecoverynetwork.org/ where I am a “Hope Match” and will use my background and experience as a professional counselor to provide pastoral counseling to former addicts like myself. You are free to email me if I can be of help and I can in most cases provide counseling by phone and suggest and help through appropriate referrals.
Jockeys and Jeans
In late 2014, I and four other former jockeys founded Jockeys and Jeans, (https://www.jockeysandjeans.com/) an all volunteer group that raises funds for the some 60 jockeys who suffered catastrophic career ending injuries, with 40 no longer riding racehorses but wheelchairs. Our fundraising event this year is on Sept. 11 at New Jersey’s Monmouth Park Racetrack where some 17 Hall of Fame Jockeys will gather to honor seven of their fallen brothers and sisters. We have raised over $1.6 million with all proceeds going to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. (https://pdjf.org). See an example of our efforts click here.
Since our first Jockeys and Jeans Fundraiser in late 2014, the all-volunteer group founded by five former jockeys, including myself, has raised $2.6 million for the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund which pays a monthly stipend of $1,000 to some 60 former jockeys, including 40 who no longer ride racehorses but wheelchairs. We took the name Jockeys and Jeans because our first event was held in an open sided area at Tampa Bay Downs with picnic tables decorated with vinyl red and white checkered tablecloths and held during a rainstorm. Our 2023 event will be held in Las Vegas Caesars Palace and we anticipate that what has become the most successful fundraiser in Thoroughbred racing will put us over $3 million. At least 15 Hall of Fame Jockeys will be there to honor 10 of their fallen brothers and sisters. Tickets will be available beginning in March at www.jockeysandjeans.com
