About Shirley Jenkins
Thank you for joining, “Praying Families Network”
Hi, my name is Shirley Jenkins the current creator and publisher of Praying Families Network. Praying Families Network was birthed over ten years ago as a result of a friend sharing a word she had received from the Lord pertaining to prayer for our nation. She asked me, along with several others to join her in intercessory prayer every Saturday. Standing on the scripture of, “Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; (Leviticus 26:8) “, we started distributing the topics God gave us in a calendar format to our friends and family around the world as to accomplish the goal of continuous targeted prayers of agreement for our nation. The first batch of calendars that were in circulation was under the heading, “East Coast Prayer Network”.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. (James 5:15)
After about a year or so, the original publisher felt East Coast Prayer Network ran its course. Ironically the decision was made to stop our prayer meetings and distribution of the calendars right after 9/11 when our country, more than ever, needed intercessory prayer.
I started to receive an influx of testimonies of how the calendars were helping people in their lives. People were getting healed, delivered, growing in their spirituality and relationships being restored. I was strongly encouraged to resurrect East Coast Prayer Network.
Unfortunately the original group was pursuing other passions which prompted a few people from my prayer network to rekindle the flames under the new name, “Praying Families Network”. After the passing of my very dear partner in Christ, Betty Sanders in 2003, with much reluctance at first, I was handed the mantle of keeping Praying Families Network alive.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)
