Iowa Rachel Raih State Coordinator

Rachel Raih
State Coordinator

I have been involved in Moms in Prayer for 25 years and I cannot imagine my life without it. I first heard about the ministry on Focus on the Family when Dr. Dobson interviewed Fern Nichols, Founder of Moms in Prayer. I was a young mom with preschool age children and my heart was stirred. I knew I wanted to be a part of a Moms in Prayer group because I could not raise my children in my own strength and I needed God’s help! Moms in Prayer has helped me grow in my knowledge and love for my Lord and Savior and it has helped grow and stretch my prayer life. It continues to give me a wonderful group of women who are my dear friends and sisters in Christ.

My husband Darrel and I are blessed with 4 grown children, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law and three precious grandchildren. It is my greatest joy to spend time with my family and it is my prayer that my daughters and daughters-in-law will all be involved in Moms in Prayer one day.

One of my favorite Scripture passages is Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV) because it always points me to God and how amazing He is and that it is only in His strength that I can carry out this role of state coordinator:

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever! Amen.
