Prayers for our Women

Grace looking back

by Maryanne H.
My Mom and I have a favorite expression. We call it “grace looking back,” to describe the process of looking back on life and discovering there God’s mercy and grace.

Isaiah 63:7 aptly describes the manner in which we should remember God’s mercies to us:

I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us– yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
-Isaiah 63:7

This December, as the calendar years draws to a close, may you have opportunity to remember all that God has done for you in 2014. Maybe He met you in joy and in resolution. Or perhaps you saw Him in pain and in conflict, in the difficulty of being drawn to Him by suffering.

We are praying that you can look back and see His goodness etched into your life. And we hope that you are able to tell others of His faithfulness. Would you join us in prayer for one another this month?

The women on your Women’s Ministry Team are committed unreservedly to praying for each other, for the ministry as a whole, and for the individual women that make up our church. If you are a member or regular attender of ECPC, know that one of the ladies on the team has a card with your name on it–maybe stuck in the pages of her Bible or favorite devotional, perhaps taped to her bathroom mirror, or stuck to the window above her kitchen sink where she’ll see it often. And you are being prayed for, by name. Each month, our Prayer Coordinator provides us with a verse to pray for our women. We pray for specific needs within our body as we are aware of them. If you have a specific prayer request, please contact us at, or reach out to one of the members of your Women’s Ministry Team.
