WHO IS THE PRAYING WOMAN?

The praying woman reflects the heart of God.

Beauty and strength root her in the character of Christ. She commits to His ways and holds tight to His promises.

Commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders
— Deuteronomy 11:18

The powerful praying woman prays…

Father God, thank you for your words of life, your words of wisdom, your words of instruction. Grant me understanding with the help of the Holy Spirit. Reveal to me all that you have promised. Teach me, Lord. I want to learn!

A praying woman is prepared with the Word of God.

She goes to battle not only for herself but for those around her—family, friends, co-workers, church members.

Put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil.
— Ephesians 6:13

The powerful praying woman prays…

Lord, I dress in your armor today. I wear the helmet of salvation to protect my renewed mind. The breastplate of righteousness protects my heart. The belt of truth buckles around me so that I may be steadied when the day gets rough. I wear shoes of peace for those I will encounter. I carry the shield of faith to deflect what the enemy will throw at me. The sword of the word allows me to slay lies, doubt, and fear. Go before me, my commander in chief, and I will follow.

The praying woman is aware that just as God pursues her, so does the enemy.

She surrounds herself with an army of women who speak into her life, provide wise counsel, and hold her spiritually accountable.  

If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience.
— 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

The powerful praying woman prays…

God, I pray for a spirit that is teachable, a heart that is soft. Keep me from thinking highly of myself. I invite the Holy Spirit to correct me, prick me when my motives are out of line. Plant in me a spirit of awareness and discernment.

WHAT DOES THE PRAYING WOMAN DO?

The praying woman celebrates life in Christ.

She exalts the one who forgives, the one who rescues, the one who restores. She shouts his praises and worships his glorious name!

Yours, Oh Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength.
— 1 Chronicles 29:11-12

The powerful praying woman prays…

All praise to you my God, my Savior, my King! You are healer, redeemer, and friend. All things are possible with you. There is nothing we cannot do together. You are bigger than any struggle I have. When I see no way, you carve a path. Blessings and favor you pour on me. Thank you for the open doors of opportunity and for the times you’ve asked me to wait. Praise to you for who I am, where I am, and what I am today!

The praying woman invites others to live in Christ.

Her heart is to see other women experiencing joy and freedom, to see them winning the day. 

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
— Romans 10:9-10

The powerful praying woman prays…

Heavenly Father, may I be a witness of your saving grace to others. I want my life to be a testament of your forgiveness and mercy so that they may choose life with you. Let what I say and do reflect your will, not mine. May they see you, not me. 

HOW WILL YOU KNOW THE PRAYING WOMAN?

It is the praying woman who makes a difference in the lives of others.

She encourages, enlightens, and edifies.  Her life is evidence of Christ’s realness, His closeness, His desire to know us intimately.

Let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
— Galatians 6:9-10

The powerful praying woman prays…

Father God, allow me to pour into the life of another woman. Give me words of life for her. Allow my heart to ache for her pain and to celebrate her victories. May I stand at the gate for her. May I guard her heart and influence it according to your will.

You will know the praying woman not only by her love but by her fruit.

It is her desire to build the kingdom of Christ.

And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
— Romans 10:14-15

The powerful praying woman prays…

Almighty God, here I am. Send me. Use me in the lives of others. I am a willing and able vessel. Make me a disciple of disciples according to the call of the Great Commission. By the power of the Holy Spirit and the authority that is mine in Christ, I will go!

To every praying woman, thank you. You are valued and appreciated.

If you are not this praying woman, you can be. These prayers will get you started!
