Praying College Moms is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) religious organization that provides outreach and resources to mothers of college-aged children. The Praying College Moms local groups provide
invaluable service in their faith communities, such as mentorship, encouragement, perspective, resources and networking with others who are going through the same experiences. In addition to our
Bible study and prayer groups, we have socials and activities to deepen our friendships so our members can join together for a strength of purpose. Join us in our prayer for our college students:
"They are our future and they need our united prayers that God will strengthen them and give them the grace to stand for all that is good and true on campus."
We pray for our children who are on a new journey in their lives--may they be safe and successful, living their lives with dignity and honor, being true to the values taught by their families and
having the courage to share their trust in God with all those they encounter.
