Mom's Day of Prayer Takes Place in Paragould

January 21, 2006 -- Posted at 2:48 p.m. CST 

 

PARAGOULD, AR -- Women across the world are joining together to pray for children.  Christian women from 33 churches in 18 states and four countries are taking part in this-- the 8th annual Worldwide Mom's Day of Prayer.

 

“This day actually started with a native of our church in Paragould.  Her name is Kathy Payne Coleman and she was supposed to attend today but her mother is very ill so anyone out there who would like to say a prayer for her please do,” said Linda Davis.

 

The day of prayer began in 1998 and has grown by leaps and bounds since then.

 

Church member Cindy Rose says that our prayers are important for the future of our children, “There are so many outside forces who are trying to draw our children away from the word and love of God and so this is a special day when we can all join our hearts together in prayer to God.”

 

Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts, and friends of children in the community are praying for all children… especially those who are never prayed for.

 

“The other children in the community that maybe we think are bad influences on our children -- they don't have someone praying for them.  The best way to gain a new friend is to pray for an enemy,” said Rose.

 

The Bible says that God listens to all prayers but when a two or three are gathered together he is in their presence.

 

“Our society would be so much better if we could just reach out and love and pray for each other,” said Rose.
