Long for your prayer life to be revitalized? Join Barbara Thompson, author of Equipping the Church for Kingdom Prayer, and host Karen Hodge as they unpack what it means to align our prayer lives with the truths in God’s Word and the multiplied blessing that is ours when we pray His truth corporately.

About the Speaker:

Barbara Thompson

Barbara and her husband, Mark, are moving from Louisiana where they have lived for most of their lives to Mississippi. Their desire is to finish well unto the Lord, living near their son and his family. Caregiving for Barbara’s parents is a ministry priority and a God given severe mercy for growth in grace.
Barbara’s great joy is to, as she defines it, “sit on the bleachers” for women – praying, listening, connecting, and rejoicing as these women grow in grace. She’s a proud “spiritual mother” and rejoices to have a part in God’s work among us, through us and in us.
