Prayer Agreement for Women
The past couple of days we have been introducing our newest resource, The Prayer Covenant for Women. If you call our 800 number, visit our website and fill out the contact form to receive our monthly newsletter, please ask for your complimentary women’s prayer cards. We will mail to prayer cards to you, one for yourself and one for you to share with a friend. Begin by simply praying it yourself for ten days, then ask God to lay on your heart who he wants you to covenant with and gift that person the second prayer card. The cards are beautiful and make a lovely invitation to pray with and for each other.
Much of the daily burdens fall onto the shoulders of mothers. Whether they work outside the home or are stay-at-home moms, they are sometimes the spiritual leaders, teachers, housekeepers, cooks along with a host of other responsibilities. It is easy to get worn out and feel exhausted. It’s important that moms are spiritually strong so they can pour into their children and to those they serve in their day to day.
The themes of the Prayer Covenant speak of God’s character, they challenge you to make Jesus the Lord of your life every day, empower you by His Holy Spirit and equip you to share his message with those around you. The prayer is easy to use. I know some individuals who are praying it for over 100 persons on their prayer list. Others awake and partner with another in the wee early hours of the morning. It’s up to you how you put this prayer to use.
You do not have to pray the exact lines of this prayer. God will guide you and pray His prayers through you as you embark on this prayer journey.
There is no required set number of days for prayer covenants. There is freedom in how many days you choose to partner in prayer with a friend or loved one. Establishing a set number of days is a natural way to end a prayer journey with someone and begin with someone new. The importance is accountability: knowing you are indeed praying for a particular person by name—that may be your spouse, child, loved one or friend—whomever God has led you to partner with in prayer.
The prayer empowers discipleship, transformation and evangelism. When you daily pray through its ten themes—grace, love, compassion, repentance, worship, commitment, dependence, influence, discipleship and authority it disciples’ hearts. This leads to transformation—the more time we spend with Jesus, the more we become like Him—which results in evangelism—a growing desire to share his love with those we meet.
