Moms’ prayers matter

With the academic year back in full swing, many school-aged kids spend much of their day outside of their homes.

Because complex mental, social and spiritual tests face our students and schools many moms have decided to unite for a common cause. These moms gather to pray.

Moms In Prayer International (MIP International) are women who gather regularly to pray God’s will over their children and the schools they attend. There are groups in over 145 countries. The vision of MIP International is simple: that every school in the world be covered in prayer. MIP International impacts children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering moms to pray. They believe that where they gather, Jesus will be with them, as Matthew 18:20 says. They also believe that if they ask anything “according to His will,” they will be heard, as John 5:14 records.

Pauline Pope was drawn to MIP International in 2002. After the adoption of two children, prayer played a key role in staying resilient. She loved the discipline of prayer and has gathered to pray with other moms weekly since then. Pauline is grateful to the faithful women in her group who have journeyed with her through challenging seasons of life by consistently pointing her to the cross.

After seeing the impact MIP International makes in people’s lives, Pauline stepped up to serve as MIP International’s South Texas Coordinator. She loves seeing the benefits of prayer flood into the home environment and the community, not to mention seeing the difference it has made in the lives of individual students. In one such community, a student named Keely was directly impacted by the persistent prayer of these moms. Keely’s heart and life were in turmoil due to bullying at school and she began cutting her wrist to cope with the stress. Her mom’s MIP International group came together on her behalf. Through prayer, counseling and much love, God restored Keely’s life. Those who so fervently prayed for her healing were amazed to see their answered prayers.

Keely’s story is just one of many. There are well over 600 MIP International groups impacting the lives of students and schools in Texas alone. Among those are 37 here in San Antonio, including two Spanish-speaking groups and one Korean group.
