The Power of Prayer:  Fighting for Our Kids and Schools

 

Mom, do you worry about sending your child off to school? 

Experience the joy of replacing your anxiety and fear with peace and hope by praying with other moms. 

Join the worldwide prayer movement Moms in Prayer International, bringing mothers together to change the lives of children and schools through prayer. 

 

Christ will gather us, His army, to sound a battle cry against the spiritual warfare our children face as they go back to school.  Come, praise, worship, and turn your worries over to the God of Angel Armies. Our victory is in Christ Jesus!
