In 1990 I read a brochure that introduced me to “Moms in Touch,” now Moms in Prayer. I began to pray with a mom whose son was in my daughter’s elementary classroom. As the school year progressed, God began to answer many of our prayers and to enrich my spiritual life through the Four Steps of Prayer. Five years later, my husband’s transfer to Germany opened new doors for women to meet in my home to pray weekly. Our Moms in Prayer group provided great support, encouragement, and comfort, especially during the time that my son was hospitalized for 26 days. The praying moms in our group came faithfully to meet me for prayer in the hospital chapel.
Upon our return to California, I discovered a large faith-based Slavic community of women in Sacramento where we settled. With my own Slavic background, I attended a Moms in Prayer conference in 2004, where several Slavic Moms in Prayer groups were formed. This began my journey with a passion in my heart to see further groups birthed among women in this community. During this amazing time of shared intercession through scripture-based prayer, we found a freedom from fear, with thankfulness.
