Moms in Prayer Leads On-Campus Event on National Day of Prayer
A strong turnout of almost 30 women endured the cold drizzle of the morning to walk PCA’s campus in prayer for our children, families, teachers, school, community, and nation. Seven topics were covered in prayer, including: government, military, media, businesses, education, church, and family. Made up of mothers, grandmothers, and friends, the group first read 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Acknowledging that our country’s Pledge of Allegiance includes “one nation under God,” and our currency boasts “In God We Trust,” the group pressed into their time of prayer together.
The women moved as a group to seven different spots on campus as they covered the seven topics of the morning. At each prayer stop, one woman read specific scriptures and led a prayer for that particular topic, followed by members of the group praying spontaneously for that same topic before moving on to the next location.
One of the women commented: “This was such a powerful morning. Standing shoulder to shoulder with other women—moms, grandmothers, and people I didn’t know—who want to see God move among our children and in our nation made me realize the power of making community prayer a priority.”
The morning ended with a time of “prayer tailgating” over homemade pastries and coffee where the women had the opportunity to get to know each other or reconnect with familiar faces. In the end, the group agreed that even in the face of the chilly, damp morning, this Prayer Walk is an event that they want to make an annual feature in our community calendar!
