Military Families

Wives of husbands in the military, or moms serving in the military, join together to pray with other moms for their children and schools. Praying in a Moms in Prayer group provides great encouragement as you gather once a week with like-minded moms.

I heard about Moms in Prayer, but didn’t have the opportunity to get involved with a group until my family was stationed in Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. I found a group of women at the church I was attending. They were military spouses and wanted to pray for their children. I was in! It was life-changing for me.

I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, a wife of a retired Army officer, mom of three sons (a.k.a. military brats), and come from a long line of military service. Moms in Prayer helped me realize that wherever we were stationed, I could find a group of praying moms, even if I didn’t know anyone personally at first. I loved it! I could just jump right in, knowing that these women were standing on the same Moms in Prayer core values and that we were going to pray for our children and schools. As a military family, this was a lifeline since we carry additional burdens unique to the dynamics of a military lifestyle.

That’s why I am excited about the role of Moms in Prayer Military Family Liaison. I can minister intentionally to our military community, connecting active duty families and seeking God together on behalf of our children and schools. I am energized about the vision that God has for Moms in Prayer and how it will change lives on every military installation in the U.S. and abroad!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

In each new town He has given me at least one great prayer partner! Sometimes I had to introduce her to Moms In Prayer, but most times she was already there, waiting for me, and ready to pray. My closest friends in each new town have been through Moms In Prayer!”

As a military mom, Moms in Prayer helped me with tremendous prayer support when we moved back to the states with three teenagers. It was a hard move and the large schools were overwhelming after living overseas in a small community. I’m grateful for other moms praying with me for my kids and their school.” — Marine wife
