Women’s Group Issues Inauguration Day Call to Prayer
Challenge also issued to women to pray for President-Elect Trump daily during his first 100 days in office.
The Global Christian Professional Women’s Association (GCPWA) announced it will hold a call for prayer on Inauguration Day. Women around the world are invited to participate. The prayer will take place this Friday, January 20 at 8:15 a.m. CT.
Members will pray for a successful transition of power and that President-elect Trump and other political leaders will “have the mind of Christ and the wisdom of Solomon.” They will also pray that Christians from all political leanings will unite to support the new president.
“The book of Corinthians says that we are the body of Christ, we each have a role to play, we are one and we must always be united,” said Dr. Grace M.A. Stephens, founder and president of GCPWA. “Many Americans are facing rifts in their families, places of work and even churches. It’s critical that we pray that rifts are mended, bridges are built and wounds are healed.”
GCPWA’s mission is to “educate, encourage and empower Christian professional women to live their best life,” according to their website. GCPWA connects approximately 20,000 women through their organization, providing assistance for spiritual, personal and professional success.
“As professional women, we have been blessed with so much,” said Dr. Stephens. “To whom much is given, much is required. The upcoming presidential term presents us with an opportunity to help facilitate conversations between those that have differing opinions, demonstrate and model compassion and leverage love to combat confusion and the enemy’s attempt to divide.”
She added, “This is an opportunity in our nation’s history to both fortify our faith and help lead others to Christ by our example.”
To take part in the prayer, call (712) 770-4700 at 8:15 a.m. CT Friday, and enter #263896 when prompted.
