    So you know how we make a point not to talk about politics on this show? Well, today we're dedicating an entire episode to it (two, actually if you count part 2)! Political tensions seem to be at an all time high, and conflicts between well-meaning, Bible-believing Christians seem to be on the rise. With instant access to news in real-time and social media providing everyone with a platform to express their views, it's no wonder. So this week we're going to take a look at the role of prayer in politics. Even we were surprised at some of our conclusions!

    This week on the podcast we got to talk with author, missionary and host of the Hearing Jesus podcast, Rachael Groll. We discuss her newest Bible study called "She Hears: Learning to Listen to Jesus," where Rachael takes an in-depth exploration into the lives of six women Jesus knew. Rachael talks about some common struggles women face such as feelings of insecurity or unworthiness, allowing mistakes in our past or where we've come from disqualify us from the future God has for us, and the challenges (and joys!) of pursuing a two-way conversation with an invisible God. Rachael also teaches how to use the "color method" of bible study to deepen your understanding of scripture, and in doing so deepen your relationship with God.

    233 Engaging Kids in Faith and Prayer with Valerie Ellis

    Find out what your unique prayer personality is (and receive prayer tips tailor made for you!) at www.prayingchristianwomen.com/quiz today!

    In this week's episode of the Praying Christian Women podcast Valerie Ellis joins us to talk about her passion: engaging with kids through everyday moments to point them toward a deeper relationship with God. We talk about the importance of making space to talk with the children in our lives about important things, even (especially!) in the busy world we live in. Valerie opens up about the very real fear of being forced or awkward in the ways we bring up faith with our kids, and shares some of her own experiences of pushing through the awkwardness and finding rewards on the other side. If you have children anywhere in your sphere of influence, you won't want to miss this great conversation about engaging with them in fun, meaningful ways to bring Christ front and center!

    Valerie would like to thank Erin Loechner from whom she first heard the "could not should" idea in a 7-minute MOPS video called "Changing the Rules."

Hopeless Inbox ,

I just listened to the episode with Nancy Hicks

I appreciate the existence of Praying Christian Women Jamie and Alana and when I have a mountain I can’t climb, sometimes I am prompted to go to their list of episodes to see if anything addresses my issue. I literally feel like this episode has given my first glimmer of hope that my vortex of pain has not removed me from God. The confusion that I get from well meaning Christians that make me want to get away from those I think I am supposed to call brothers and sisters. My rage. My bottomless fear that I had made God up was all addressed in this podcast. I want to share it with my “inner circle” and say I am not the only person who acts like I do! Thank you for this ministry and thank you for Nancy being asked to share. I am not a digital person. My world does not revolve around social media, podcasts or webinars. But I stumbled on Jaime and Alana and this has been life saving during the Covid isolation and the coming out of isolation to people that have “known me” but not been with me for 2 years……and the loss of no longer being “known” had only compounded my losses. But God used this episode to show me there will come a day where I will smile again and God has not left me. He is not appalled at my intensity. I do have a future in Christ. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAVING MY LIFE WITH GOD.

I stick to podcasts without sponsors/ads

I imagine there must be a need for them for some producers but there are fortunately so many excellent ones without them.

Passionate about prayer

I love how God has called Alana and Jamie to teach us all about the importance of being praying women, whether that’s for ourselves, our families, or those around us. They have incredible women as guests on the show that share their passion for prayer. I highly recommend you give it a listen!
