Sharon Gamble, USA National Director for Moms in Prayer International, is a frequent speaker on the subject of prayer at ladies’ groups and conferences. She loves to share from both personal experience and from the Word of God on the value and necessity of prayer.
Some of her topics include Prayer: A Living Legacy for Your Children; The Delightful Discipline of a Daily Time with God; When It’s Hard to Pray; The Four Steps of Prayer; Sitting at Jesus’ Feet; and Lord, Teach Us to Pray. Sharon writes a weekly blog on the Moms in Prayer website called Monday Love. She has also published a booklet for those going through challenging circumstances entitled Comfort From a Friend.
Sharon is blessed to have a Christian heritage and to have come to know the Lord at an early age while growing up in Massachusetts. She graduated from Gordon College with a BA in history and has taught both middle school and high school. Sharon and her husband, Ray, were married in 1979 and have two daughters, Kathryn and Mary, two sons-in-law, Brandon and Angel, and three little grandsons. She and Ray are looking forward to more grandchildren in the days ahead. (Ask to see her pictures!)
While their children were young, the Gambles moved frequently due to Ray’s active duty military service, and Sharon served widely in churches and chapels both here and abroad. She has been a women’s retreat speaker in both Germany and the United States, has served in a prison ministry and on several outreach teams, and has led many Bible studies over the years.
When the Gambles returned to civilian life, Ray started a second career as a history teacher. Sharon started a Moms in Prayer group at the school where Ray taught in New Hampshire, which was also the school their children attended. As she prayed each week with her group, Sharon’s love for prayer and for the Lord grew. A desire also grew not only to pray for her children and their school, but to mentor and teach other moms to be persistent, powerful intercessors.
