What is Prayer Sisters?
Prayer Sisters™ consists of small groups of women across the nation who are committed to support one another in prayer, friendship, and spiritual growth who meet regularly to pray.
Prayer Sisters™ nurture three essential needs of every woman.
Prayer Sisters™ are comrades through life’s challenges, both in prayer and practical ways.
Loneliness disappears for a Prayer Sister; she instantly has friends to enrich her life. Whether with old friends or new, when women become Prayer Sisters they enter into a more meaningful level of friendship.
In the safety of confidentiality and trust, Prayer Sisters™ help each other grow deeper in their faith and stronger in their inner being.
What’s The Point of Prayer Sisters?
- Encourage women to connect in commitment to support each other through prayer, friendship, and spiritual growth.
- Assist churches and/or women’s ministry directors launch a fresh ministry that helps women connect with each other and grow in their faith.
- Provide each Prayer Sisters™ group with on-going support through helpful resources, prayer tools and Prayer Sisters™ events.
The first Prayer Sisters™ group began several years ago in Parker, Colorado, when a small group of friends began to meet regularly to pray. As mothers of teenagers, they originally met to pray for the growing concerns of their adolescents. Over the years, they widened the scope of their prayers and found themselves walking one another through a variety of personal challenges and family crises. Eventually they began calling each other “Prayer Sisters” because these friends had grown as close as sisters and knew they could count on one another for prayer.
These first Prayer Sisters™ began to recognize the powerful value of praying, laughing, and crying together in a safe place. Inspired to help other women share in the same enriching benefits, under the leadership of one of the Prayer Sisters, Kathy Groom, they established Prayer Sisters™ Intl — a nonprofit ministry designed to create and support other Prayer Sisters™ groups.
As many of you know, I’m passionate about prayer. What I love about this program is that it is easy to implement. All the groundwork is already in place. Our church, Living Water, is starting a group. If you live in the Denver Metro area and would like to participate, please contact me.
