“Confidence is not so much that God makes ME strong, but that I become strong IN God, WITH God, and BECAUSE of God.” Lisa Freyschlag, Moms in Prayer Colorado State Coordinator, shares with us how different her life used to look when her confidence wasn’t in God. Just wait until you hear what the Lord is doing in and through Lisa now as she stands upon the solid rock of confidence that is our God! We can walk in bold, faith-filled confidence because of Who our God is!

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 NIV
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Lamentations 3:22-23a NIV
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV
For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught. Proverbs 3:26 ESV
For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh. Philippians 3:3 ESV
In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge. Proverbs 14:26 ESV
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 1 Peter 5:6-10 ESV

About our Guest
Lisa was first invited to a Moms in Prayer group in the 1990s and grew in her prayer life as they faithfully followed the Four Steps of Prayer. The group became her favorite hour every week as she sometimes arrived in a panic, yet always left in peace. God’s promises are true and when we bathe our children in His Word, our hearts are refocused on the God Who is bigger than our problems! In 2016, she began serving as the Moms in Prayer Colorado State Coordinator. She and her husband have three kids and eight grandchildren with a ninth on the way!
She says, “The Lord answered prayers for my children in such unique and reassuring ways. When my children became adults, I looked back at my prayer sheets and realized that He worked many of the specific attributes I prayed for each child into the fabric of their individual characters and personalities. I remain awestruck and humbled by the power and privilege of praying God’s word into their lives. Now it’s my privilege and honor to pray for my new little loves—my grandchildren!”
