Women Praying Boldly Initiative: Will You Join Us?
I know we are in the midst of the Secrets of a Newlywed series. I also know that many of you who read my blog are not in that stage of life yet. While I firmly believe that you don’t have to be currently married to benefit from the insights in the series (and to treasure them in your hearts so that you start off your marriage stronger when it does happen!), I do know that many of you look forward to the day when you can apply these lessons to your own lives.
And I understand that longing, more than you know. When I was single, it became a very large burden on my heart to pray about finding a godly man. I truly believe that because I prayed so earnestly and brought that desire to the Lord, that he answered my prayers and wove my love story within months.
I also believe that we not only should pray these things (meaning, godly desires of any kind!) for ourselves but also for one another. Because I saw how that prayer worked so miraculously in my own life, I make it a point to continue to pray for women I know who have that same desire.
And I’d like to take this opportunity to reach out to any of the readers here who would like to share in that, as well.
Here’s what I propose: I would love to start a Women Praying Boldly initiative (taken from Candice Watter’s book Get Married) here on this blog. If you are interested in praying for a godly husband and want others to rally around you in prayer, then fill out this form here with your contact information.
Everyone who fills this form out will become a part of this initiative and then we’ll all start praying for each other. You don’t have to pray every day, but you do have to commit to intentionally praying for your fellow ladies a few times each month. I only want women who take this prayer seriously—those who really believe that it can impact lives and are willing to pray it boldly themselves—to sign up.
If you’re already married but still want to join along in praying for these ladies, then you can jump on board, too. Once I get everyone’s information, I’ll send an email out and include each woman’s first name only. Then, the praying begins.
I would love to be able to see how this commitment to prayer impacts women’s lives, so I hope that once this begins, I’ll have some testimonies to share with the rest of the group (and maybe here on this blog, as well!). We’ll just have to see what comes of it.
For now, we step out in faith and ask…
Will you ask with me?
