The Women’s Prayer Group meets on the fourth Monday of each month. We share prayer requests and spend the majority of the time praying. We loosely follow the format of praise, confession, thanksgiving, and intercession that was shared during the Women’s Retreat in 2011. We keep a written record of our prayers in journals and just recently we spent one of our times together praising God for all of the answered prayers over the last year of meeting. At one of our prayer group times, you might see crying, laughing, and Bible pages flipping as we turn to just the right scripture to pray at that moment.
Below is a list of books that we shared with each other at the February prayer time. They are books that we either use in our individual prayer time or in the group time. Andrew Murray is one of my favorite authors on prayer of all time. Most of his works were written in the 1890’s. (If you have a Kindle, they would be free as those works are now in the public domain. Any of his works written after 1910 cost about 99 cents on the Kindle.) The Women’s Prayer Group has been using the 31 Days of Prayer and 31 Days of Praise books over the past year. We were able to obtain free copies of these books for the prayer group as the 1687 Foundation has a mission to provide these books free to anyone who needs them as long as they are given away, not sold. All of the books on the list have touched at least one or more of us in special ways. Maybe one of these titles might bring joy to your life.

Throughout the experience of the prayer group over the last year, I have been constantly asking God to teach me how to pray. Being a part of this group has been one of the best blessings that God could ever have bestowed upon me. We have been vigilant in watching God at work and we would love to have you become a part of our prayer group. Please contact me, Andria Donnelly (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Canyon Lukasiak (email@example.com), our hostess, for more information.
