So Thankful for Moms in Prayer!

By Tami Brown
 About 22 years ago, I
heard Fern speak on Focus on the Family, As she spoke, I remember the Lord
speaking to my heart that, “He wanted me to PRAY for my sons!” I told
Him I was, and He said, “NO, I want you PRAYING for your sons!” Like
I didn’t understand the depth of what He wanted to do in and through them.  That week, God sent another mom at the
football game, to come and speak to me about a group she was in, it was called,
“Moms in Prayer”.  I began the
next week, and began to weekly pray the word with other moms for their
children, my four sons, and their school, Delano High School, in Minnesota.
They went to a Christian school before this, and this was
their first experience at a public high school. 
I was a little nervous, and so appreciated these loving, caring friends,
coming alongside me in prayer for my sons! 
We laughed and cried, and shared our lives together!
In the midst of all of this, confidence came, and we
began to pray bold Ephesians 3:20 prayers! Our sons wanted to help students
know God, and so began weekly Bible studies for the students. Then, God began
to raise up a group of young men who wanted to worship and pray every Monday
night, it started small, in a coffee house, and soon outgrew it!  Our principal, during this time, came to a
salvation play at our church and gave his heart to Jesus! God then opened the
door in the high school auditorium, for worship every Monday night! Our four
sons, Jon, Dan, Matt and Tim all helped with this.  Students came from all different high schools, and different denominations, 200 – 400 students, to worship and pray
every Monday night in the high school auditorium, for 2 and a half years! Students
were saved, healed, and trained to reach their campuses! All birthed through
prayer.
 

Our oldest son, Jon, and his wife Janet, and their 3
little girls are youth pastors of 400 students at Journey Church in Kenosha,
Wisconsin. They are training their daughters and students to pray for and share Christ
in their different high schools!  Our
next son, Dan, and his wife Sara, and their four little ones help with our
family business. Dan
runs the event side of the business, doing sound and lighting for mostly
Christian events across the United States. 
Matt and his wife, Michelle are evangelists, expecting their first
little one in September! Their ministry is www.Thinke.org,
and they also started www.EmergingEvangelists.com
to encourage young evangelists.  Matt
also started www.IgniteLive.org to
train students how to share their faith, they are doing this in cities across
the United States.  Our youngest, Tim, is
finishing his last semester at college, and has started his own web design
company. We are truly in awe at all God has done, and
we love God, and His word and prayer so much!  I am so very grateful for Fern and Moms in Prayer! It has been a HUGE gift to
our family! 

Tami and her husband Mark, have been married for 38
years. They have four amazing sons, and 8 adorable grandchildren! She is the
National Prayer Coordinator for www.CampusAlpha.us,
and has been a youth leader for 25 years. She is a joyful, prayerful,
revivalist and everyday evangelist who loves Moms in Prayer.
