MomsHooPray began in 2010 when several Northern Virginia moms of recent high school grads felt the call to continue in group prayer for their kids heading off to UVA. After all, we prayed them through their formative years from kindergarten all the way to their high school graduation. Why would we stop praying now?
Word of mouth led many local moms of UVA to gather bi-monthly for one hour to pray for their Hoos.
And what an hour it turned out to be. Following a simple format of 1/2 hour of sharing while others took notes, followed by 1/2 hour of prayer, we quickly found that our sharing time led to many conversations after we ended our prayer time. So many connections for Moms and their students were made, information shared, rides offered, and friendships forged!
Our roster connects over 160 praying moms of UVA students. Though many cannot attend in person, they remain faithful to send in requests, pray for emergency requests, share a ride, or make a delivery to a HOO in need.
Most importantly, we’ve been awed by incredible answers to hundreds of prayers, bringing us and our students much joy and the Lord much glory!
