Leaders, we just completed our 2013 Women’s Ministry Forum here at Lifeway and I once again saw the importance of prayer. As the week began and plans began to fall apart, I sent out a prayer S.O.S. to a big group of friends who pray. We felt the prayers! Maybe you even remember my post a couple of weeks ago and the cute red headed gal!
Each time my heart wanted to race and panic, I stopped again to pray. The results were so far beyond what we could have possibly done on our own, and though this was not OUR “Plan A,” we watched God’s “Plan A” unfold and draw the hearts of leaders to Him! Leaders were equipped and encouraged as well as poured into by the Father through the worship, speakers, and workshop leaders.
So, let me encourage you as I’ve been encouraged, to PRAY without ceasing. If you need a plan to help your women know how to pray specifically for your church check out the post 10 Days of Simple and Strategic Prayer for Your Church, by Dr. Chuck Lawless on Dr. Thom Rainer blog. Excellent ideas!
