Anointed by Christ's prayer partners employees are anointed for ministry or preaching, teaching, prayer and intercession and dedicated to the kingdom living.
One ordinary spring day in 1990, God moved in an extraordinary way. Three women sat reminiscing about their youth and adulthood; of roads traveled and paths not taken. They spoke of where their lives were at the time, as opposed to where they thought they would be; unaware that God was listening as they quietly spoke of the shattered fragments of their broken lives. Unbeknownst to them, God had a plan for their future.
Anita, as a divorced mother of five with responsibility for protecting and providing for her children, was forced to find refuge in the Lord.
Brenda, as a single, sensational, successful, yet not satisfied woman, became aware that life without Christ would not last.
Carol, the mother of two daughters, was filled with a desire to set a positive example for them to follow. Fractured by the death of her father, and an impending divorce, she realized that Christ was the only way.
The Potter took the pieces of their broken vessels and molded a special kind of ministry, “ABC” (conceived of by the initials of the founders’ names) -- Anointed By Christ. This would become a prayer ministry anointed to heal the hearts of broken women. Jesus became their Lord and the best friends became partners in prayer.
Lifelong dreams and plans were changed. The reality of present day life and events were the springboard that launched them into a life of prayer. Like the Israelites, they were between a rock and a hard place. The Egyptians were behind them, and the Red Sea was in front of them. It seemed as if there was nowhere to go; they were trapped. Israel cried out to God. Just like God moved and made a way for Israel, he moved in the hearts of these three women as they cried out to him in prayer. The road that seemed un-crossable (their Red Sea) became an anointed avenue for change. “In the same way, I will not cause you pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:9b).
They bonded in praying for one another. Faithful to their commitment to pray, God moved on their hearts to meet in prayer also for others. This was the start of the ministry. A few years later they were led by the Spirit to have a prayer retreat where broken women could find release from their pain.
The anointing is resting strong on each of them as a Pastor, Minister, and Teacher of God’s Holy Word. To this day, many women with shattered plans are still being re-molded by the Master’s hand that is upon these three women of Anointed By Christ Ministries.
