Housewife's Adventure with God, A: The Continuing Story of Jessie McFarlane and Prayer Chain Ministries
1 in stock
Jessie McFarlane wanted to have a deeper, more real Christian life - "teach me to pray" she begged God continually. She had been inspired by hearing Donald Coggan say at his enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury, that "whether you're a housewife baking a cake or being crowned as archbishop, it is all for the glory of God."
Her relationship with God grew stronger and she began meeting her sister and a friend as a prayer triplet. There was plenty to pray about and soon she was organising a 24 hour round-the-clock prayer meeting for a Luis Palau mission in Glasgow. Soon, her influence had spread to England as she spoke to women there. Many of them became part of a new movement, a prayer chain for the nation. This has now developed into an international movement called 'Prayer Chain Ministries.'
You cannot fail to be encouraged by this story of dedicated prayer, or to be challenged to make a difference for God in your surroundings and experience and to do all for the glory of God.
