Welcome Friends!

My name is Brooke McGlothlin and I'm the girl behind Warrior Prayers.

If you've already been following the ministry of Warrior Prayers on Facebook or Twitter, you'll be thrilled to know that we now have a permanent home!

The Warrior Prayers blog will bring you a weekly prayer theme consisting of seven prayers (one for each day of the week). Each prayer will be based on specific scriptures designed to help you intercede for your boys in the areas they need prayer the most.

My heart, as a mother of two boys myself, is to walk through this together petitioning the King of kings and Lord of lords on behalf of our sons.  Raising godly men.  To learn more about the heart and passion behind Warrior Prayers, or how the ministry of Warrior Prayers got started, click here.

I hope you'll continue to join me in the Warrior Prayers conversation daily on Facebook and Twitter, through my weekly Twitter chat (#WarriorPrayers) and now once a week (Thursdays) on this blog (subscribe?)!

But there's more!

Warrior Prayers Exclusive Art Collection
Allow me the honor of introducing you to the brand new Warrior Prayers Exclusive Art Collection!  What a joy it is to bring you the work of my friend and artist, Michelle Pendergrass.

Michelle has slaved over the last weeks to bring you this exclusive line of her art derived from the heart of Warrior Prayers.  Each piece, hand-painted, brings to life the individual parts of the prayer that started it all (found here).  Pick the piece that grabs your heart. Share a piece with a friend who has boys for Christmas.

...and help a worthy ministry...

Ten percent of each purchase in the Warrior Prayers art collection goes directly to meet the needs of
