Many women in history have contributed their success and many achievements to the power of prayer. Although African slaves worked the cotton fields picking cotton, many times they could be heard singing hymns of praise and prayer despite the hardship from working “sun up until sun down” on different slave plantations. Regardless of their sufferings, trials and tribulations they believed in the power of prayer.
Historically, African-American people have been known to be very spiritual. From the old Negro spirituals sung during slavery, to using prayer as a catalyst for divine intervention during the civil rights movement.
Do you believe prayer is divine intervention? How has prayer sustained your well being or those women from your generation?
