Moms In Prayer
August 21, 2011
Dear MIT Moms,
Thank you for all your steadfastness to prayer for our children and school. This year I wanted to inform you of our new time and location for our weekly moms in touch (MIT) prayer meetings. We will be meeting at Bethany Wesleyan Church (BWC) , 675 Blue Mountain Drive, Cherryville, PA 18035. Their web site www.bethanywes.org contains a link for directions at the bottom of their home page. This is the location for the Blue Mountain Campus of Bethlehem Christian School.
We will have our first meeting Wednesday evening, September 7th at 6:15 PM. Classes for children will also be offered during our meeting time. You do not have to be a member of BWC for your child to participate in the program.
We have felt the Lord lead us to make our prayer time more accessible for mothers who also work outside the home and also require child care. We would also like to extend our prayer coverage for surrounding schools as well as our own.
Fawn Keglowitz, Coordinator for MIT will co-host our mom’s in touch group, and serve as our group leader once a month. We are excited to have Fawn and this is quite a blessing for our group.
Last year many of you were faithful, praying during your own devotion times for the needs of our schools and others. If you would like to be included in our prayer list, please feel free to reach out to me and I will mail this list to you for prayer. I may be reached 610-554-1202. While these prayers were certainly appreciated, we would love to see as many ladies attend personally and join us in group prayer. Hopefully moving our meeting time to evening, will enable us to connect personally. We will adhere to our start and end times faithfully.
In His Service,

“If God is calling you to do something,
you’ll be restless until you do it. “
Spoken during a testimony at my church
Last fall I was chatting with a mom after an LVC field hockey game, and through the course of conversation, a ministry called Moms In Touch came up. God had led me to this wonderful ministry a few years ago. Though moved and amazed by the fruit it had produced in His name, I had not been an active participant. Then she invited me to pray with her for BCS. Uh-oh. This was the most recent of the many times that MIT was brought to my attention. There just wasn’t time to add another thing to the calendar. But God had other plans—was I willing? Right there on the field, I told Him, “Okay, You’ve tapped me on the shoulder about this for the last time---I will go!”
What a privilege it has been for me to have met with her this past school year, to pray for our children! Not only has it been my privilege, my Lord Jesus has blessed me and has revealed Himself in new and powerful ways.
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them." ~Matthew 18:20
In our nation, we have the privilege of gathering together, and praying aloud. God spoke the world into existence! ~ Praying and submitting to Him in Jesus’ name has power like no other!
Blessing #1: For the longest time I believed the lie that this wasn’t one of my spiritual gifts—but once I said yes to going out of my comfort zone, God showed me that I was to trust and depend on Him in this area. He is actively “growing” me in prayer! I had to depend solely on Him, acknowledging before Him that this was not a perceived strength, and that I was relying on Him. As always, He is faithful!
Blessing #2: God is present when we pray. We are deeply aware of His presence as we pray for our children, parents, staff, and administrators. He knows our hearts and His Spirit leads us. Each week we focus on one of His attributes in prayer. He is drawing us into a deeper and more intimate relationship with Him.
Blessing #3: What a gift the Lord has given me in my prayer sister! Not only do we pray together, but we laugh together, we cry together, and we encourage one another! Our fellowship was an unexpected blessing, for which I am so grateful
Blessing #4: God has blessed us with His peace. To know that we are laying down before Him our concerns, large and small, to be a part of knowing personally that our children are prayed over--- “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You.” ~ Isaiah 26:3
God has revealed Himself in His leading and in answering our prayers. He has called us to “pray without ceasing.” We know without any doubt that He hears us as we praise who He is, thank Him for His provision, and cry out to Him in prayer. “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” ~Jeremiah 33:3
Would you prayerfully consider “standing in the gap for our children & grandchildren, for such a time as this?” As we pray that He strengthens and grows His Kingdom through Bethlehem Christian School? As we pray that BCS brings glory and honor to Him?
“What IF His people prayed?” ~ Mark Hall
