Pray that God brings you another mom from your child’s school who will be willing to meet with you each week for prayer.

Because important life choices are made during the young adult years, Moms in Prayer encourages moms to continue praying in college and career groups.

Moms in Prayer International offers traditional groups, which pray for specific schools, as well as various Group Types, praying for preschoolers through adults. Some groups, such as military groups or career groups, adopt a neighborhood school to cover in prayer. Click here to view a list of Group Types.

Once a Moms in Prayer group is started, it is important to maintain the group for each subsequent school year. As a leader, you should seek to replace yourself if you find you will not be able to continue.

It is good to have a co-leader to lead the group from time to time. This gives you the opportunity to train another person so the group is not entirely dependent upon you. Before your children change schools or graduate, pray for and train a replacement, challenging the group members to not allow the group to disband.

A Moms in Prayer group prays for their children and matters that pertain to their school. Therefore, topics other than these must be prayed about before or after the hour of prayer. Moms with more than one child at the same school are encouraged to focus on one child each week. This allows for more concentrated and specific prayer for that child during the given time for intercession. Moms may alternate children weekly or focus on one child for several weeks or months.

If a mom has a specific prayer request for the school, she is to give it to the leader before the meeting. This will avoid unnecessary discussion during prayer time as well as give the leader opportunity to consider if it is appropriate for group time.

Moms in Prayer groups are not to meet on public school campuses nor impose upon the public school by asking for prayer requests and/or promotion of the ministry. (See Policies 5 and 6.)

A mom who knows a teacher personally and is confident that the teacher is a Christian may ask for prayer requests privately. The name of a student should never be given by a teacher who may share a prayer request.

Should a Moms in Prayer member find it necessary to go to a teacher or principal concerning a child or a school-related matter, she is to go with a gracious spirit as a concerned parent without identifying herself as being part of Moms in Prayer.

What a Mom says

I love this ministry so much. God originally brought MIP (or MIT as it was) across my path nearly 20 years ago, but for various reasons we did not go forward at that time. But when He brought it back some four years ago, I received an invitation from a local coordinator inviting me to a prayer breakfast, and in all honesty, my first reaction was; "I haven't got time for that!"

Also, when I joined a group, I was also concerned that I would not have time to pray EVERY week; I wondered if it might be a 'deal breaker'! However, not only has the weekly hour become possible, but it has become absolutely vital to me, and I now run my own group of women that the Lord has hand-picked and brought to us. I love how the Lord gives me the attribute each week, and how blessed we are when we find it is always so appropriate. I love encouraging and supporting the other mums, and we rejoice so much in answered prayer and shared testimonies together, as well as carrying one another's burdens. I have learned that it is so much more than my own little corner and this has been especially supported by MIP Switzerland. Meeting Kathrin, Jane and Cathy in England, as well as other mums from across the country and the world, has shown me what a huge vision this is, and how large God's heart is to encompass the burdens of mothers and children throughout the whole world. The beautiful, loving, self-sacrificing hearts of these mums, and their great love for Jesus have blessed me so much. All of this has given me so much joy and I now embrace it fully! I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do next! Julie, UK

What a Teacher says

I’m encouraged to know that ‘Moms in Prayer‘ moms are praying for me as a teacher, and for the school where I teach. This gives me much appreciated support.
