My love story with Moms in Prayer began in the fall of 1990 when I began leading a prayer group for my eldest son’s elementary school; he was entering first grade at the time. Two years before that I had heard Fern Nichols on the radio talking about moms praying together for their children and schools. I knew immediately that’s what I had to do! I prayed and asked God to send me a prayer partner and, eighteen months later, He sent me Kate. It was a long wait but it was worth it!
What a joy it has been to pray with moms through all the years as we have carried each other’s heavy burdens for our children. There is nothing I love more than sharing the hope we have through prayer as I meet and encourage moms to pray for their children and schools.
Through Moms in Prayer I have grown to know my heavenly Father intimately, to experience the deep assurance of belonging to Jesus and to enjoy sweet fellowship with the Holy Spirit through one accord prayer. Praying weekly with my sister-friends in our Moms in Prayer group has been a blessing beyond measure in my life. We have fallen in love with each other’s children, prayed them through the storms of life and rejoiced together in God’s unending faithfulness to hear and answer our prayers.
I am passionate about seeing moms grow in their relationship with the Lord and I am so thankful that Moms in Prayer provides a wonderful way for them to get there. Praying through our format of the four steps of prayer each week has empowered us to trust God and wait upon Him with unshaken faith.
As New York state coordinator, I joyfully anticipate the day when every school in New York State, from Niagara Falls to Montauk, will experience the blessing of a prayer covering. Is anything too hard for the Lord?
My husband, Steve, and I enjoy life together on the east end of Long Island. We have raised three children and are absolutely delighted to be watching our family grow. So far we have welcomed a daughter-in-love, two precious grandchildren, and a future son-in-love. God is faithful.
