(By Rev. Tim Schwartz) — As we rejoice in the good news of Jesus’ resurrection, and we are reminded of the women who first heard the glorious news spoken by the angel, let us pray for all of the women in our Region.
Let us pray for women pastors and associate pastors, youth ministers and leaders, Sunday School teachers and deaconesses that God would guide and direct them as they serve in our churches.
Let us pray for the American Baptist Women’s ministry in our Region, and the president, Barbara Westfall, and all who serve in leadership roles that Christ would unite their hearts and minds in mission as they continue to serve faithfully in new and vibrant ways. Let us thank God for the many mission projects that they have funded and worked hard on throughout the years, including White Cross and so many others!
May we also pray for our young women that the Holy Spirit would fill them with enthusiasm as they become the next leaders to share the good news of Jesus Christ!
As the angel proclaimed in the scriptures, “And go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee...” Matthew 28:7 (NASB)
