Wake up, Deborah

Laura Edwards is the founder and director of “Wake up, Deborah,” a ministry she created while a missionary in Brazil. The ministry’s focus is praying for children. One story Laura shares is about some “Deborahs” on their way home. As they waited for the bus, they were accosted by a group of teenage boys. One of the boys recognized the “Wake up, Deborah” bag one woman had. His response was, “Oh, no! My grandmother is a “Deborah!”

Wake up, Deborah” offers the opportunity for all women in a local church to pray for children, even those like me who have no children. I have, however, four great-nephews that are in my prayers daily. Praying women can make a difference.
