Prayer Partners

Often CWMs write to me saying they feel lonely and isolated in their church. The idea came to me, probably from God, for us to begin prayer partners. I am just brainstorming at this point and you can help me. We could connect two women together to pray for each other's needs. They could send requests through email or talk by phone if they wish. I might need someone to help me organize all of this. So, again just brainstorming right now. What do you think and do you have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Update to this post. If you are interested in having a prayer partner. Send an email to kimberly@kimberlychastain.com with prayer partner in the Subject heading. List information about age and sex of children. I can't promise perfect matches, but will try. I will send you the email of another person wanting a prayer partner and you both can decide how to connect.

Hi Kimberly,
I have been so busy that I haven't been in touch in a while, but I really miss the company of the people from CWM. I really like the idea of email prayer partners . God Bless and keep me posted.:)

I like the idea. It would be nice to nice to link two moms who have something in common, like a hobby or children the same age, etc.

I'm also interested. I'm not sure how to organize it, but I will think about that.
I think a prayer partner would be great!

I too feel this idea is wonderful and would love to matched to someone with similarities as far as matching in regards to children (ie. I have two boys ages 6 and 9]. Since I am new to Google I am unsure of exactly how it would be set up, but I do know from my experience with yahoo groups that it would be like a database where each participant would enter specific info and then pair up that way.

Coach Kimberly said...

Glad everyone is interested. Jessica I know just a "little" about Yahoo groups. Could you explain that a little better? Would all the email addresses be listed and then you pick one? I was also just thinking of giving people an email address and letting them contact one another. Let's keep talking and figure out a way to do it. I think it would be so cool to have people praying for one another from all over the world. We serve an awesome God with sisters in Christ everywhere.

Hi Everyone! Its been a LONG time since I posted! So much has happened over the past 8 months since I posted on the site. I was a SAHM for 6 1/2 months and recently started my new job as an office manager. I would LOVE to have a prayer partner!

Jennifer,

Welcome back to posting. Hope you are enjoying your new job. There certainly seems to be interest in prayer partners. I will just have to figure out the logistics.
