Florida State Coordinator, Stephanie McDermott

Warm greetings from the Sunshine State. I am so excited that I get to share Moms in Prayer with you all! Looking forward, my goal is for every school and church in Florida to have a group of praying moms. I want Moms in Prayer to spread and grow as more women come to know about our precious prayer ministry.

My daughter was five years old when she was diagnosed with a 6mm-size kidney stone that resulted in a number of emergency room visits and hospitalizations for over six months. Because of the unpredictability of the movement of the stone, I was stricken with anxiety and would worry whenever she’d collapse and blank out; all because her pain was too great to bear. I was a newbie with Moms in Prayer and week after week, I’d cover her in a new promise from God. The time I spent with my praying sisters brought me great peace, hope and strength. God answered so many prayers on her behalf and today she is healthy and has never had another episode with a kidney stone!


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

I learned about Moms in Prayer in 2005 while living in Singapore. A precious young mother invited me to her group, and it was a blessing from that day forth. I have been with Moms in Prayer ever since and have led groups of praying moms in six countries, from Europe to Southeast Asia to the U.S. In each new place, I was blessed to find women embracing our four steps of prayer and spending time weekly to pray scripturally and in one accord.

I have two beautiful children that have been prayed for in Moms in Prayer groups throughout the world. My supportive husband encourages me every step of the way. I enjoy classical music, knitting, mentoring women and my four international cats. I hold my undergraduate and post graduate degrees in education and have taught in many different countries. It gives me great joy to have started a Moms in Prayer group everywhere I have lived and to guide them as an International Leader Developer. These groups still exist today. I am so thrilled to serve now as your state coordinator for Florida.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come,It will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3
