Heartland Division Coordinator, Gayle Hadden

I LOVE our seven Heartland states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. Well, OK, maybe that’s because I’ve lived in most of them… but honestly, I love them because of the women God has planted there. Women with hearts for God. Women who embrace the urgent call to pray for our children and schools.

We’d love to welcome you and get you plugged into one of our groups! No prayer experience required. The message of HOPE that this ministry brings to women of all ages excites me. We love praying scripture and the sweet presence of Jesus into the lives of our children and grandchildren. And we love sharing the HOPE God has given us by sharing our Moms in Prayer stories with others.

Come be part of something extraordinary God is doing as we pray for the next generation!


I would love to hear from you. If you’re not in a Moms in Prayer group yet, you need to get connected!

My Moms in Prayer Story

One simple invitation from a friend changed the course of my motherhood journey. She invited me to start a Moms in Prayer group for my three children’s elementary school. What a GIFT that turned out to be! Not only did I discover more about who my God is as we praised Him each week, but I learned to trust Him more and more as others helped pray powerful prayers over my children.

Before we moved to a new state where our son would begin his junior year of high school, my Moms in Prayer group prayed with me a simple, practical prayer. We asked God that beginning the first day of school, he would have a Christian to eat lunch with. Not only did God answer THAT prayer in an amazing way, but my son also received an invitation to join a first day of school small gathering of believers! Both these things led to life-long, foundational Christian friendships for him. God wants us to see His presence in our kids’ lives and to pray about and celebrate that together in our Moms in Prayer groups!

Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel. Philippians 4:6-7 (CEV)

Married to my high school sweetheart, Terry, we’ve raised three wonderful children who are now raising our five precious grands. I enjoy playing with my grandkids, birding, boating, travel, oh… and chocolate!
