Into the Throne Room {welcome! and GIVEAWAYS}

If we were standing in front of each other face-to-face, I would be doing that annoying happy dance with you. Well…with you. In front of you. Either way. It’s just that God has multiplied my excitement as I anticipate what he has in store for this space, and for us as his daughters.

But before we dive into what’s ahead, I wanted to give a brief word of explanation about what’s behind us here at Million Praying Women (MPW).


From Where We Came

First, we are a ministry under the banner of Million Mighty Men (MMM), founded by author and international speaker, Bill Perkins. He originally launched Million Praying Women in 2003 with a vision that women would come alongside the men in their lives through prayer.

Over these last ten years two women, Patsy Cadwell and Eva Gibson, faithfully wrote on this site, inspiring many to seek the Lord through prayer. And to them we say a heartfelt, “Thank you!” for laying the foundation.


Join the Million Praying Women movement. We're encouraging women in ever-deepening communication with their Maker. #MPW (Great prizes during launch week!)


Last year, these two precious ladies sensed God leading them to step down. So Bill began to pray for wisdom regarding the site. And through that time of prayer, the Lord led Bill to me. Proof of God’s grace.

Bill asked if I would pray about possibly heading up a re-launch of MPW. And to be honest, I wasn’t interested. I had other projects on my project list. But I agreed to pray. And as I did, God surprisingly pierced me deep for this ministry. Deep.

Long story…longer…I knew I wasn’t supposed to go at it alone. I envisioned a group of women walking this journey with me. And God faithfully raised up a powerful team that exceeds all my expectations. Every day this week and next, you’ll get to meet each of the ladies that God has led to be a part of MPW and hear how he has grown and directed and transformed her heart for prayer.


Where We’re Going

So where are we going? Into the throne room. Literally. That’s our prayer. That’s our vision — that you and I would hold hands and walk together into the throne room of the Almighty God.

To those in Christ, he beckons, “Enter in.” To those who walk by faith, he assures, “My promises are yours.” To those who stand under the banner of his grace, he whispers, “Believe.”

We’re walking together into the presence of the Lord — humbly, boldly, faithfully, and powerfully.

We as a team are humbled by the vision that God is unfolding for MPW. We believe the Lord stands ready to deepen the worship of his children, which naturally includes a deepening of his daughter’s intimate communication with him. Click here to read more about the site.


But the Lord sits enthroned forever;
he has established his throne for justice,
and he judges the world with righteousness;
he judges the peoples with uprightness.

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
And those who know your name put their trust in you.
Psalm 9:7-10


The Practicalities

Just so you know what to expect on a practical level, Lord willing, we plan to have new posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We also have a Facebook page and Twitter account that offers multiple daily inspirational quotes, prayer challenges, and more.

Also, don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter. The newsletter will arrive in your inbox on Sunday mornings and will contain a brief synopsis of and links to the prior week’s posts, as well as exclusive news and offers available only to newsletter subscribers (i.e. 5-day weekly prayer focus, prayer room invitations, and more). Subscription is easy and free and you can unsubscribe at any time. Click here to sign up.



Now for the GIVEAWAYS! Because you can’t launch a new website without giveaways. We will randomly choose 3 WINNERS — one for each of the three bundles. Entry deadline is Friday, February 7th. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 10th.

Drumroll, please.

We as a team here at MPW look forward with anticipation. We believe that worship and prayer is the catalyst to revival. So let’s press into our God — worshipping him, listening to him, believing him, and calling forth his promises into our lives and into the lives of those around us.

Today’s Prayer

Lord God, you alone are worthy of honor. We praise you as the King of kings and Lord of lords. Use this ministry to draw more and more women into your presence. Stir up your daughters to deep places of worship in the dailiness of our lives, for your great glory and our blessed good. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

I would LOVE to win either the first or second bundle. I have heard a lot about the Jesus Calling book! However, at this point or season in my life . . . I could benefit greatly from reading the books in The Marriage bundle. Praying God’s Word for Your Husband has been on my wish list and I am a huge Kathi Lipp fan. I am trying to be more intentional in all areas of my life and that includes my marriage and prayer. I listened to the music samples on Christi’s website – her music is beautiful! Thank you for the opportunity to win such amazing giveaways. I can’t wait to read and pray with all the women who support this endeavor.
