Moms in Prayer has been in existence since the mid 1980’s. The following is the story of how it came into being from its founder Fern Nichols. I’ll never forget the day in 1984 when I sent my two eldest sons off to junior high school. Fearful thoughts formed when I considered what they would be facing. I knew the school would be a battlefield for their hearts and minds. I prayed for them, but the urgency remained. “Oh Lord,” I prayed, “there must be one other mom who would take time to pray with me.” My desperate prayer was answered. Who could have foreseen God’s mighty plan? Today, tens of thousands of women gather in all 50 states and in more than 130 (now over 140) countries to pray for their children and schools. Will you join us? Consider praying this simple prayer, “Lord please bring one other mom to pray with me.” –Fern Nichols, Founder and President Moms in Prayer International.
We are fortunate to be able to send our children to a Christian School, one that has a rich heritage of praying for our children. The mission of Moms in Prayer International or MIPI is simple:
“Moms in Prayer International impacts children and schools worldwide for “Christ by gathering mothers to pray.”
