A Woman’s Prayer Changed the Course of History

As a woman, do you struggle to pray, feeling that God is more attuned to the prayer of Christian male professionals and religious male elites? If you are a woman and struggle to pray with confidence or hope, the following thoughts from Scripture are written to encourage and inspire you.

Why Men are Better Men When they Listen to Women: The Case of Mary of Magdala

 

I am a better man because I listened to my Christian sisters, female disciples who’ve met Jesus. Jesus’ disciples – His future leaders – were better men because they, too, listened to a woman – Mary of Magdala. Do you want to be a better man, a better follower of the Savior or leader of His people?

 

Or, due to a religious bias, are you in the habit of downplaying or even dismissing what your Christian sisters have to say? You are missing an opportunity for growth that Jesus has sent your way. Jesus sends women to speak to groups of men, even His leaders. Jesus’ disciples were better leaders because they – as a group – listened to a woman who listened to Jesus and obeyed Him. I’m better because I listened. You’ll benefit in the same way.
