Are you a woman of prayer? Do you wonder if God answers your prayers or if he listens to women? Throughout the Scriptures, women have played an important role. We see mothers raising godly children who are changing the world, and sisters doing dangerous jobs to help out while at the same time working with friends and neighbors who share God's love.
Embedded in the culture of these heroic women of the Bible is the discipline of prayer. Today we take a closer look at the 19th century.bible prayer womenthat changed the world.

The meaning of a woman who prays
Why is a praying woman so important?
The Bible asks us to pray almost 400 times. God not only tells us to pray, but he also gives us examples of people praying, imitation prayers, and even a prayer formula directly from Jesus. Because? Because prayer changes things.
When a woman prays, she literally strengthens the armor of God around her, her family, and everyone else she prays for. This is important because the enemy is looking for a way to get into every corner.
A woman who prays is importantbecause it keeps that armor strong, even for those who don't get saved or don't pray as much.
What happens when a woman prays and believes?
After turning my life over to God, I began to read the Bible differently. It was no longer on my to-do list, but my devotional time was a place to find and know God.
The more she got to know him, the more she trusted him and believed that he would act and respond.
Believing in God changes everything about prayer.
What happens when a woman prays?Do you really believe that God will answer you? He picks it up and she sees it because she's watching him.
"Will you keep the perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast(Eyes are on God),
because they trust you." Isaiah 26:3 NIV (emphasis mine)
This connects each of these prayer women in the Bible. Even when we imply that they prayed, we imply it because her lifestyle confirms it. Each of them does not have a chapter or verse where we see prayer, but that is because prayer is primarily a secret act. Let's dig into his life and see the evidence.

Who was a woman praying in the Bible?
Throughout the Bible we find stories ofWomen who stood strong in their faith and prayedfervently, even when it seems that your prayers have not been answered. They knew that prayer was not just asking for things, but having a permanent conversation with the Father.
Here are some women of prayer from the Bible who really changed the world.
- Mary of Bethany
- Maria Magdalena
- Mary, the mother of Jesus
- Anna dies prophetess
- the canaanite woman
We could not have a list of women praying in the Bible without mentioning the first woman who prayed. To be honest, there are days when I envy the beauty of Eve walking and talking with God. Eva was a woman who undoubtedly changed the world, if not for the better, she is the mother of us all!
“They heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day,” Genesis 3:8 ESV(Video) The Complete History Of Ruth - One Of The Greatest Women In The Bible
I find it interesting that Sarah is the next woman of prayer mentioned in the scriptures. We don't really know Noah's wife and/or other ancestors, but we assume they prayed. Because? Because her children could pray and those are things that are transmitted mainly by mothers.
However, Sarah is referred to as a woman of great faith, and although we do not have a prayer written in Genesis, we see in Hebrews that her faith was great. A believer doesn't get there without prayer, and Sarah is one of many praying women in the Bible.
"By faith, even Sarah herself was able to conceive, beyond her life, considering him faithful who promised." Hebrews 11:11 NASB
Something that fascinates me about our God is that he is not racist or sexist or any other "is".
He loved the people of Israel, sure, but he also loved others in the world he created. We see a nice picture of him in theHagar's life.
Sarah and Abraham did not treat Hagar with dignity or respect, but God did. God saw her, spoke to her, and blessed her. Her prayer was so powerful and in it we see the first name given to God; the god who sees!
"Then she called on the name of the Lord, who said to her: 'You are a God who sees'; for she said: 'After I saw you, did you still live here?' Genesis 16:13 NIV
Jochebed (mother of Moses, Aaron and Miriam)
I used to assume that mothers teach their children, and while this is conjecture, there are many Biblical heroines that support this theory. Jochebed is someone who lives the faith of a mother.
At a time in history when loving children was dangerous, she stepped out in faith to protect Moses.
Not only do we see the result of his prayer life - God saving his son from certain death - but we see all of his children becoming great faith leaders in Israel. Their prayer lives from him certainly fueled yours and changed the world!
Jochebed is one of the great women of prayer in the Bible.
“The woman conceived and gave birth to a son; and when she saw that he was beautiful, she hid him for three months. But when she could hide it no longer, she took a wicker basket and covered it with pitch and pitch. So she placed the child in it and placed it among the reeds on the bank of the Nile. Her sister stayed away to find out what would happen to it.” Exodus 2:1-10 NIV

From an early age, we see Miriam emerge in faith (which I see as a clear sign that she had a faithful and prayerful mother). Furthermore, we see her rise to a position of respect and leadership within the Israelite camp as they journeyed to the promised land.
Miriam is one of my favorite characters in the Bible because she led when we see few women leading and because she was not ashamed to praise God publicly. That guidance and confidence helped Israel praise God as they struggled in the wilderness.
“Sing to the Lord, for He is exalted;
He threw the horse and its rider into the sea. Exodus 15:19-21 NASB
Another of the Bible's leading women of prayer during the Old Testament period was Deborah. Her closeness to God shines through when we read her story in Judges. She submitted to her leaders, but always to God first. The righteousness of this prayerful woman from the Scriptures transformed her life in her circle and helped save the nation.
“And Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam sang that day, saying:
"That the leaders in Israel led,
that people volunteered
Praise the Lord!" Judges 5:1-9 NASB

Rahab's story is another story that touches my heart. Here was a strange woman who trusted God and changed the world. Her loyalty saved the lives of the spies and then she changed the world through her lineage. Matthew 1:5 introduces her as the mother of Boaz, which brings us to David and then to Jesus himself.
"Now, before they lay down, she (Rahab) came up to them on the roof and said to the men: "I know that the Lord has given you the land and that his terror has come upon us, and all the inhabitants her. the earth has melted before you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the waters of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt. Joshua 2:8-10 NIV
how should i knowRahab was a woman of prayer, one of the many women of prayer in the Bible? Boaz was a just man. Rahab saw Jericho collapse around him and only God saved his family from him. Seeing God leads to a faith that makes powerful prayers and passes them on to his children!
But Joshua spared Rahab the harlot, and her father's house, and all that she had; and she lives in the midst of Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers that Joshua sent to spy out Jericho." Joshua 6:25 NIV
Naomi is a biblical woman who I can relate to and like. Her life was difficult for her as her husband made difficult decisions that led to a more difficult life than any she had ever known. Widowed and grieved by the death of her children, she returned to Israel.
Why didn't she just stand still and turn to the gods of Moab?Naomi was a faithful womanthat she loved and trusted God, which means she was a woman of prayer. Through her faithfulness, Ruth also entered into Christ's lineage! Talk about changing the world!
"And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law: 'Go, take each of you to her mother's house. May the Lord be good to you as you were to the dead and to me. May the Lord give you rest, each one in the house of her husband." Then she kissed them and they raised their voices and wept." Ruth 1:8-9 NIV
We only look at Naomi's life and we see that she was faithful and that meant that prayer was part of her daily discipline. Ruth decided to leave her family and her culture behind to succeed Naomi. She accepted Jehovah God as her own God and followed her ways.
About:Who is Ruth in the Bible?
Ruth is certainly one of the many women of prayer in the Bible. How do I know? The culture would not have allowed for anything less, of course, but there is more. Her children and grandchildren demonstrate a faith that would have been passed down. A world changer indeed!
"But Ruth said, 'Don't pressure me to leave you or move away from you, for where you go I will go, and where you sleep I will sleep. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you will die, I will die and be buried there, so the Lord does to me, and worse still, if something other than death separates me from myself ". Ruth 1:16-17 ESV
In Esther's life we see not only prayer but also fasting. She was a woman positioned by God to change the world in powerful ways. Thanks to her loyalty, prayer and courage, the entire race was saved from a holocaust. It wasn't the first or last time someone tried to wipe Israel off the face of the planet, but God intervened through this praying woman and her influence!
“Then Esther commanded them to answer Mordecai: Go, assemble all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me; Do not eat or drink, night or day, for three days. I and my maidservants will also fast in the same way. And so I will enter the king what is not according to the law; and when he perishes, I perish." Esther 4:15-16 NASB(Video) Bethel Redding & Modern Apostles: A Biblical Analysis

I imagine whenever you find a man who is faithful to the scriptures, he has a praying mother, but Ana far outshines the others. Her self-denial in prayer and her sacrifice in sending Samuel to the temple to be raised up as a priest changed the direction of the priesthood.
God used Samuel mightily through preaching, prophecy, and exhortation. It all started with the prayers of a grieving mother that made Anna one of the many women of prayer in the Bible.
Then Ana prayed and said:
“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
and my horn is exalted in the Lord,
My mouth speaks boldly against my enemies,
Because I rejoice in your salvation." 1 Samuel 2:1-11 NIV
Mary of Bethany (Martha and the lazy sister)
The Bible seems to be full of Mary, which can be confusing. Três Marias entered the list of women who pray in the Bible. RealiseMary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene are different women.
“But the Lord answered her and said: Marta, Marta, you worry and worry so much; but only one is necessary, because Mary chose not to have her good taken away from her." Luke 10:38-42 NASB
Mary of Bethany was the sister who chose devotion to Jesus, talking with him and listening to him teach. She was blessed to speak with him face to face and we believe that she continued to practice after his death.
Be sure to read it in full.Story of Mary and Martha.
“Then Mary took a pound of pure spikenard perfume, very expensive, and anointed Jesus' feet and dried them with her hair; and the house was filled with the sweet smell of perfume.” John 12:3 NIV
The next Mary is Mary Magdalene. She again came face to face with Jesus. He healed her and she followed him with love and devotion. This would have continued after her death.
“Shortly after that, he began going from town to town, proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God. The twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of demons and diseases: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had come out. Luke 8:1-2 NASB
It fascinates me that there are disciples of Jesus. This is something I wasn't taught growing up in the church, which is just one more reason I urge you to read your Bible for yourself instead of just knowing Jesus preached from the pulpit. Ministers just don't have enough time to teach everything, but you can read and learn and grow in your faith for yourself.
“But Mary was weeping at the tomb; and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the tomb; she saw * two angels dressed in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been. And they said to her: Woman, why are you crying? She * answered them: “Because they took my master and I don't know where they put him.” ... Mary Magdalene * came and announced to her disciples: “I saw the Lord” and that He told her these things. John 20:11-18
Have you ever noticed a common thread in the lineage of Jesus Christ? These women prayed, had a lot of faith and courage to change the world. Elizabeth is no exception to the remarkable women of faith we have seen thus far. She was faithful and just before God.
“Both were righteous before God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord. But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both very old." Luke 1:6-7 NIV
If you have struggled to have children, you know the hours you have spent in prayer crying out to God to see you and help you. We see that her husband prayed, but we know as women that he wasn't the only one praying! Elizabeth is another of the many women of prayer in the Bible.
“But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zacharias; his prayer was answered. Your wife Isabel will give birth to a son, and you will name him Juan. Luke 1:13 NIV
Mary, the mother of Jesus
Of all the women of prayer in the Bible, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is the one whose prayers I wish were best recorded. As Jesus grew in wisdom and knowledge, we know that Mary passed on the faith from her. The angel says that God favored Mary and we know that this speaks of a relationship in which she prayed regularly and with vulnerability. A prayer is recorded for us in the Gospel of Luke.
And Maria said:
"My soul glorifies the Lord,
And my spirit rejoiced in God my Savior." Luke 1:46-55 NASB
Anna dies prophetess
It is very rare to see women ministering in the temple, but Anna the prophetess is one of them. She dedicated her life to the service of God.
Prayer and fasting were disciplines that he practiced. God blessed his prayer life and allowed him to bless his only child.
“And there was a prophetess, Ana, daughter of Fanuel, from the tribe of Asher. She never left the temple and ministered day and night with fasting and prayer. At that very moment she approached and began to give thanks to God and she kept talking about him to all who were seeking salvation. Luke 2:36-38 NASB

the canaanite woman
Matthew tells of an interesting woman who spoke face to face with Jesus. The Canaanite doesn't even have a name, but her story has a place in the Bible. She had enough faith to beg God's mercy for her daughter.
“And a Canaanite woman from that region came out and began to cry out, saying: “Have mercy on me, Lord, son of David; My daughter is cruelly possessed by demons." Matthew 15:22 NIV
After seeing the wonderful love of the Son of God, we can assume that his faith grew more and he dedicated himself more to prayer. If he has ever seen God move in the life of his children, he knows that he creates a deep desire to see him again.
So I know this is one of the many praying women in the Bible.
“Then Jesus said to her: “O woman, great is your faith; so it will be done with you as you want.” And his daughter was healed immediately." Matthew 15:22 NIV
Throughout the New Testament we see people ministering in pairs, and it is often difficult to tell if the names are masculine or feminine. Priscilla is one of the top female leaders of this era. We see them mentioned in Acts 18:2-3, Acts 18-19, Acts 26, and Romans 16:3-5.
Priscilla guides and teaches others to follow Christ. Although no prayers from her are mentioned, we know that she was a woman of prayer because of her powerful ministry. God blesses those who pray.
“and he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him more fully the way of God. Acts 18:26 NIV
Another strong woman who was a leader in the New Testament was Lydia. She is described as a worshiper of God and we later heard that she led a church in her house. Although no prayers are listed here, we know that she was a woman of prayer because God used her and blessed her ministry.
“I was listening to a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple cloth and a worshiper of God; and the Lord opened their hearts to hear the words of Paul.” Acts 16:14 NASB
