Tennessee State Coordinator, Patti Walker

Welcome to Moms in Prayer! I live in Chattanooga and I am wife to my encourager husband Chris and mom to four young adult children. Praying in a Moms in Prayer group has taught me that we serve a God who is good and faithful to work out His plan for His children.

This year I pray our students and teachers will rise up with God-confidence to share Christ, resulting in thousands coming to faith through Him. In unison, may God transform every praying mom, teaching her to fix her eyes on Him alone. May we all overflow with hope.

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

As my oldest was starting kindergarten, I was invited by another homeschooling mom to a Moms in Prayer group. Loved it! However, as that school year was ending with the birth of our fourth child, I put corporate prayer on hold.

Fast forward to fall 2011 when we placed all of our children in traditional, Christian school. As I walked into the gym for parent orientation, Andrea stood smiling at a Moms in Prayer (MIP) table. I hadn’t thought of MIP in years, but immediately knew I had to get involved. My girls had recently begun struggling with peer pressure and self-identity. After praying week after week, I realized that only God could save my children and turn their hearts toward Him.

The God of hope now fills me with all joy and peace as I’m learning to trust Him (from Romans 15:13). The moms I pray with hold my hands up when I can’t. We share our deepest concerns with one another and know our hearts are safe.

Chris and I were married in April 1994. Our daughters are now on their own in the working world, one son is in college and our youngest graduated high school in May 2021. I enjoy walking, playing games and knitting—and I really want to learn to play the piano.
