Women for ‘change’

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — As we approach the November presidential election, every candidate wants to be coronated the “agent of change.” Their stump speeches and television ads are riddled with the phrases “together let’s change America” and “your vote will change the direction of our nation.”

Over the last year, I’ve observed a trend that has the potential to bring real change to the spiritual climate of our nation. It can best be described as a growing women’s prayer movement that isn’t tied to large conferences, Christian celebrities or national organizations. This is a grassroots effort.

Women in local churches and in neighborhoods are being compelled by the Holy Spirit to come together each week to join their hearts and voices in prayer. They are waging battle for their children, congregations, communities, country and more.

A group of women, for example, who attend Bethany Assembly of God in Adrian, Mich., (pastored by Richard Clay), have prayed together five days a week for 12 years.

These women are agents of change.

Across the nation, many of these prayer and Bible study groups are comprised of women from different church backgrounds. They haven’t gathered to tout one church over another. They’ve been brought together by a common desire to see God move in their lives, communities and families.

Do you long to see God bring about changes in your life and in your nation? Then perhaps you should consider joining a weekly prayer group and being part of a growing movement of women who are putting more trust in the One who resides in heaven than the one who sits in the Oval Office.
