Southeast Division Coordinator, Marcy Russo

Marcy Russo, Southeast Regional Director

We welcome you to join our growing army of praying moms in the Southeast states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina!

We listen and genuinely respond to one another as we pray in our Moms in Prayer groups. We lovingly pray God’s word over our children and schools, keeping what we pray confidential, trusting God to work because He is faithful. Though most of our groups are two to five people, we call ourselves an army because each week we battle in the heavenly realm, not with weapons of this world, but with mighty weapons. God’s Word is powerful to bring down strongholds (2 Cor. 10:3-5). We get to witness and celebrate one another’s wins in our children and our schools and also trust God through times of persevering through trials, knowing His Word always accomplishes what it was set out to do.

Jesus tells us why praying scripturally is an effective way to pray, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.” (John 15:7, NIV). God’s Word is woven throughout the Moms in Prayer hour in each of the Four Steps of Prayer: praise, silent confession, thanksgiving and intercession… that’s why we see powerful results!

I would love to hear from you. If you’re not in a Moms in Prayer group yet, you need to get connected! Experience another mom praying for your child and the joy of seeing God at work in your child’s school.

My Moms in Prayer Story

Life-Giving! That’s what Moms in Prayer (MIP) has been to me over the years. I’ve been praying in a MIP group since my children were 3, 6, and 8. We’ve prayed through every age, stage and situation, and now my kids are married with children of their own. Hard to believe!

When my daughter attended her first public school dance as a freshman in high school, she came home saddened with what she saw, burdened for her classmates, resolving never to go to another dance again. Students arrived intoxicated and had smuggled alcohol in which contributed to the degrading atmosphere and conduct.

My MIP group began to pray specifically that this would also burden the new principal. We prayed God would give him a strong resolve to change the atmosphere of future dances through a creative solution and that he would not back down even if opposed by others. A year later when I met the principal and thanked him for his leadership, he told me that he was so bothered by last year’s dance that he awoke at night with a plan. He would change the atmosphere of the dances by breathalyzing the students as they entered. He told me that many opposed his idea, but that he wasn’t going to back down.

Moms in Prayer was my best parenting tool because it brought me peace, taught me how to pray, and changed my responses by growing my love for the Lord and His word.
