Moms in Prayer has been a lifeline to me when I have felt overwhelmed by the stresses of having a child (now grandchildren) in public school. I cannot go to school every day with them and I cannot filter everything the secular teachers are saying to my grandchildren. But I can send them off (their parents do in reality) knowing that the greatest teacher, the Holy Spirit, goes with them. I can trust in a Loving Father, that loves them more than I do, that will guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. I can know that my praying grandmas will be lifting them up before the throne of grace, praying Scripture over them and loving them. So for all the "i cannots", there is one "best" can, I can pray!

I found Moms in Prayer as a young mom. My boys are in high school and college now and I can honestly say it is the best thing I do for my boys. I have complete confidence in Moms In Prayer leadership. This ministry was built from the most faithful Christians I have ever met. They seek the Lord in all they do. They are frugal with every dollar and follow the Lord’s direction. I am still amazed how many women across the globe that God calls-not only to pray weekly in groups for children and schools, but women who will eagerly spend their own money on gas, airfare, hotels and materials to share it with others. So now they run an international ministry on much less than my large church on the corner of town. I encourage every woman to not only join the ministry in praying for your children and schools, but to financially support a ministry that is changing the world!

Moms In Prayer International is MORE than moms who pray together. It is a lifeline that CONNECTS, EQUIPS, and DEVELOPS praying moms in their communities to pray TOGETHER. Grounded and rooted in Christian principles, I see the commitment of Moms In Prayer International to equipping a generation of moms how to pray fervently and effectively for their children who may or may not know GOD. In my MIPI group, i have witnessed the power of praying one accord with young moms who were weary and questioning their faith in GOD. When i heard a praying mom (that did not know me) cry out for my son just as hard as i do, i was compelled to take my prayer life to another level!

My mantra, “Pray before your child’s first breath until your last” is what connected me to Moms In Prayer International. Even though i connected to MIPI when my son was in high school, i was not a stranger to prayer. I am a fourth generation intercessor, I HEARD my Great-Grandmother, Grandmother and Mother pray for me. I say that not to brag but i realized how i took the precious GIFT of intercession and the POWER of a praying mom for granted. I have always been covered and saturated with prayer. As the Mother of three black males, i am reminded DAILY of the privilege given Moms to cover and saturate their children in prayer with the POWER of HOLY SPIRIT that dwells in me. Moms In Prayer International connected me to praying moms that i would not have known were there if i had not been COMPELLED by my friend to join her MIPI group. My prayers are global...yes GLOBAL because of my international praying moms.

The impact of praying one accord in community is exactly what is needed for such a time as this. Moms In Prayer International employs me to take my faith beyond my home and the church walls (my comfort zone) for where it is needed most (e.g., local schools) for those who need it most (e.g., administrators, educators, support staff, students). It is an honor to be apart of this fine international organization and serve the Kingdom of GOD here on earth.

Moms in Prayer trains and encourages women to live a life of grace filled courage. This ministry practices what it preaches. The leadership of Moms in Prayer lovenly demonstrates God first, Family second and Ministry third. All members are devoted to a weekly hour of prayer for children and schools worldwide! There are many opportunities of leadership for those that are called by God to grow His Kingdom through faithful praying moms. It has been a delight to witness numerous answers to prayer and to guide others to also experience more of Heaven here on earth!

I have been associated with Mom in Prayer since 2002. As I have taken on various leadership roles I am continuously impressed on how Moms in Prayer remains true to their mission. Mission statement: Moms in Prayer International impacts children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray. When the moms gather they do not study or talk about prayer they actually do it; they pray scriptually in one accord. Each member is called to prayer by our Heavenly Father.

Moms in Prayer International has changed my life. I have personally met the current President and her predecessor. Both passionately lead this organization in its original mission-to teach mothers to pray for their children and their schools. And to impact the next generation for the Kingdom through prayer. I appreciate that MIPI has one mission and sticks to it, not trying to diversify to other areas.

This ministry has probably had more impact on my life than any other. The most in fact. The premise is simple. One hour of prayer per week with other like-minded mothers. Being able to build a strong fellowship with other believers has been a mega blessing. Lifting my children up to the Lord with Scripture is a fantastic way to pray. And hearing another mom pray for my child is the best thing ever.

This ministry is run with nothing but integrity from the ground up. The vast majority of the leaders are volunteer. Christ is at the center of it all.

Moms in Prayer has transformed my life. I am a better wife, mother, Church member and just over all better Christian. My faith and confidence in Christ has blossomed. I have learned by staying connected to the True Vine in Prayer, all things really are possible. I am in the navy blouse in the picture with my MIP sisters at a prayer event.

I have only began being part of this ministry, but I see a difference in our life already. When I filled out the form to find a group in my area, Cyletha Smith from Bowling Green called me. However, there was group in my area of the state. God was able to surprise me again in a couple of ways. I am now being encouraged by God to lose my insecurity and lead a group in Owensboro but also Ohio County needs someone to get them started. Also, the day CeCe called I was having a down day both physically and mentally. I had been praying that day that God would take this burden from me. That is what he did through CeCe. At some point during our interaction I begin feeling better. That feeling has not returned to the way it was. I praise God for helping me, sending Moms In Prayer in my life and for CeCe who has been an answer of many prayers.

Like many people, I heard sermons on prayer and knew that it was something I was supposed to do regularly, but why was I falling asleep while praying? Why did it seem like a list of requests to recite? Then I got involved with Moms in Prayer International. My first child was in Junior Kindergarten and there were things happening at his school that I was alarmed about. What to do? I looked on the Moms in Prayer website and found the Ontario Provincial Coordinator (in Canada). She encouraged me to order a booklet and to pray for God to send one other woman to join me in praying for my son and his school. 3 months later, I found another Christian mom to pray with. Wow! I was amazed at using this method of prayer! It is so uplifting and perspective-changing to praise God using verses in the Bible. And then it is so cleansing and freeing to confess my sins to God and know they are forgiven. The time of thanksgiving reminds me of the ways God has already answered my prayers. The intercession time - sometimes I feel like I have had a workout by the end of our prayer time. Using scripture verses, praying for one person at a time, and one subject at a time, allows us to focus in on the need like a skillful surgeon with a scalpel. I am in a different group now in a different province, and I know I have been changed by Moms in Prayer International. I am sure my prayers have made a difference too - but I may never know the extent of this until I reach heaven someday. I am now an Area Coordinator with this ministry, working to tell others about Moms in Prayer International, and encouraging women to learn how to pray and then form groups to pray for 1 hour per week. Give this ministry a try - you have nothing to lose and so much to gain! You will be changed and your prayers will change not only your children's lives, but their schools and communities too!

Love this organization and thank God for the impact they have made on countless families! It's fun to gather with other mom's in unity - in prayer for our children, teachers and staff. This organization is comprised of the most genuine, professional and God honoring women. I count it a privilege to stand with them.

I have been involved in this ministry for about 28 years now. I have had many roles that has taught me about how to treat people and how to be a godly leader, the list goes on. But the most important work that I have ever done is be involved in a Moms In Prayer group and weekly pray with other moms for my kids. I will keep praying till my dying breath, trusting God for my children and grandchildren!

A wonderful ministry that provides support, resources, and encouragement to all of its members. Efficiently run on a bare-bones budget, with such dedicated and caring volunteers at every level--from group leaders all the way up to national directors. It has been life-changing to serve alongside moms from all over the world, lifting our kids up in prayer!

For the last 27 years I have been praying for my children in a Moms In Prayer group. Some of the women and I have prayed the entire time together in groups from elementary school through to our college and career group. The sisterhood of Moms In Prayer has been a lifeline for me and others in our group. We have shared the heartaches and the blessings and become "forever friends". I cherish all the relationships I have throughout the Moms In Prayer community. So blessed!!!

I love Moms In Prayer. I am in my 10th year of being a leader/group member of MIP. I started a group for our school when our oldest went to kindergarten. God provided two other moms to pray with. I immediately felt God's peace and hope praying each week for our kids and the school. God continues to overwhelmingly bring me peace and answer prayers: safety, godly friends and teachers, healing, encouragement and faith building experiences! Praise God for his goodness through Moms In Prayer! I try to share it with as many moms that I can! I believe Fern Nichols said this, that our prayers are not only impacting our children, but hundreds of others. It is a ripple effect!

Moms in Prayer has been the Titus woman in my life. This ministry has guided me as a mom to love the Lord with all my heart and to trust in His ways. Being part of the MIPI ministry has helped me become a better mother, wife, and follower of Jesus.
Praying with other moms has taught me to keep my eyes on Jesus as I raised my children. Now that I am in a college/career group, I see how God has been guiding my children through the years. I lean on the Lord's promises as I wait expectantly for my children to make Jesus the Lord of their life.

I've been in Moms in Prayer for 24 years. There is no better feeling than hearing other Moms praying Scripturally and specifically for my children. I've been in and have started many Moms in Prayer groups in 3 states and 5 cities. These women are so dear to me. I love Moms in Prayer Ministry!

I was anxious about sending my oldest daughter to Kindergarten last year (2015) and I felt burdened to pray for her with other moms. After a quick search online I found Moms in Prayer and got connected with their area coordinator in my state. Lets just say the rest in history and I am on my second year leading a Moms in Prayer group at my church. The blessings of praying each week with other moms for our children, schools, teachers, and principals is truly life changing. The resources and trainings offered by Moms in Prayer are amazing.

It has been a three year journey with Moms in Prayer; so far. My heart was selfish for my children at first. However in Christ, there are no boundaries for love. Setting aside time to pray everyday and to plan a prayer sheet every week helps me to see God's vastness, glory, and great mercy more than I have ever experienced before. Other mom's heart felt prayers somehow seem to touch spaces in my soul I had not known as they cry out for the lives of their children and mine. Because, week after week not only do we love, but we see God's provision. How blessed to witness the journey of many faithful lives. How blessed to see God's handiwork unfold before me. Moms in Prayer has strengthened what I was taught from youth, and its scriptural base is refining me everyday. Moms in prayer provides a way to tear down denominational walls and grows my hope in unifying Christian moms to work together for God's Glory.
