How We Started: 2011
We were a team of praying people that heard the call of God in 2011 when I asked them to join with me and pray for our cities and counties in California.
At that time we represented more than 14 different churches. We had several Pastors and ordained ministers on the team, although we consider every person on the team a Minister of Prayer.
Just about everyone on the team had been serving the Lord in their local church and in other outreach ministries. We’re still an active bunch who are dedicated, mature, and willing servants who are under the Lordship of the Head of the Church: Jesus Christ!
And Jesus is Lord over this ministry!
The Call of God
January 4, 2011
I had awakened that morning quite agitated with all the negative reports about California. The Lord led me to His Word: Isaiah Chapter 40.
Verses 3-11 were lit up like a light bulb and began this ministry!
I sent out an email to people of prayer that I knew and asked them to join me in praying for the counties of California, a state which has a population of over 40 million people,; 15 million are Christians!. I divided California's 58 counties and gave each Intercessor several counties to keep in prayer.
We pray for: The Church, The Lost, and Elected Officials. We have found it helpful to use a map of the state when we pray.
Since that time, the Lord has led us to pray for the entire nation. Isaiah Chapter 40 is still our foundation for prayer.
How We Started PrayerwithPurpose.org
In the beginning of 2013, the Lord led me and my husband to expand the outreach of Prayer with Purpose by going online with this website.
For the Intercessors
Each year the Lord has added additional subjects to the website, always having this goal: to edify, strengthen, and encourage the Body of Christ through His Word...even more so now as we get closer to Jesus' return.
Stay ready Saints!
It’s quite marvelous to think about how powerful prayer is. The effective prayer of the righteous continues to work to save the lost in our cities.
2023 will be our greatest days...Revival is here!
I want to hear The Master say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
My prayer for you:
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
