Grateful for the Gift of Prayer

happy birthday jesusAs Women in the Window just celebrated our 1st anniversary, and we look forward to celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior next week, our hearts are brimming with gratitude to God!

We are especially grateful that we can bring all of our requests, both small and large, to the Lord in prayer.  We invite you to support our ministry through your fervent prayers for us and the women in the 10/40 Window by using the topical prayer guide below.

And remember, we are praying for you, too: “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy…” (Philippians 1:3-4).

Merry Christmas!
