JESUS Bids Us Come
Knowing that God takes delight in the prayers and unity of His people, the Women's Prayer Summit (WPS) seeks to reflect and gather a diversity of churches, denominations, cultures, and ethnicities. We gather to pray in support of the body of Christ and the multitude of ministries that are carrying out the commission of Jesus, knowing that our God answers the prayers of his people. We need and expect a harvest of prayer.
If not now, then when. If not us, then who?
United in Prayer
Our intentions are simple. We believe that prayer and unity create a powerful combination of change and transformation, starting with the body of Christ and extending to those around us who are so desperately in need of Him. You can join this initiative by continuing to follow us, inviting women from your church, your ministry, and your region to view the extraordinary virtual event that took place on October 3rd 2020, and by joining us for upcoming prayer webinars and virtual events. Stay connected and we will keep you posted.
