    Testimonies

    Fadila* had already waited seven years to marry the man she loved. They were engaged young, while he was still in school. Although jobs are hard to come by in their North African country, culturally it’s expected that the man will have a steady job that provides a good wage before marriage. It’s also customary for a couple’s...

    Issues Women Face, Testimonies

    Scripture tells us that “… we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12 (ESV). 

    This month we are praying for the women in West and Central...

    Ephesians 6:10-12 says:

    "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil...

    Testimonies

    Marriages are fragile and all too easy to break. Our loved ones fail us constantly, but Jesus never fails to hear the prayers of his church. Women in every country are going through the unfortunately familiar pain of failing marriages, and many are finding their refuge in TWR Women of Hope ministries.

    “After listening to your Women of Hope...

    Praying for Women in West and Central Africa

    West and Central African countries are rich with diamonds, gold, oil, uranium and other minerals, but the people are among the world’s poorest. The abundance of natural resources often becomes a curse rather than a blessing to the local people. The misuse of these resources results in...

    Issues Women Face, Testimonies

    This month as we pray for the women in East Africa , we are confronted with the painful and traumatic circumstances they face. We learn this is one of the poorest regions in the world and that women live in poverty, political unrest and economic instability. They share common challenges such as illiteracy, forced marriages, polygamy and domestic...

  • When God Says No

    Devotional, Women of the Bible

    What do you do when God says no?

    For most of us, this is hard. We desire something with all our hearts; we pray fervently for it, but it doesn’t happen. Maybe it’s a wayward child you want to come back to God. Maybe it’s a career you dreamed of but never had. A broken relationship. A sick parent. A difficult marriage. An...

    Peggy's Update

    King David is often described as "a man after God's own heart." What does it mean to be a woman after God’s own heart? How are we continually giving up our hearts to God as we enter prayer together each month?

    We see in 2 Samuel 7:18-22 that David prayed with great humility:

    “Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and said,...

    Praying for Women in East Africa

    East Africa is one of the poorest areas in the world. In addition to extreme poverty, many women across the region face common challenges such as illiteracy, forced marriages, polygamy and domestic violence. Also common are health issues such as teenage pregnancy, female genital mutilation, uterine...

    Devotional, Women of the Bible

    A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Jesus answered...
