My sweet friend, prayer warrior and fellow Proverbs 31 speaking sister Luann Prater is a bundle of Jesus, she is!

I love to glean wisdom from her and more than anything, I love to hear Luann pray. Her deep connection to our Lord just spills over in every aspect of her life.

Here her heart on Encouragement Cafe’.

Luann, tell us,in a nutshell, how Encouragement Cafe was birthed.

Doing an interview one Saturday at a local Christian radio station for Proverbs 31.

The station manager and producer asked me to prayerfully consider doing a talk show for women because every time I was on, they had a surge in call-ins and comments.

I said I would pray about it.  I went home and asked my husband.

He said, “You didn’t open this door, God did. You need to walk through it.”

I asked my pastor the next day to pray with me about it.  He said, “You said YES didn’t you Prater? You didn’t open this door, God did.  You need to walk through it!”

Monday I called Lysa TerKeurst.  I said, “I want to make sure I’m in step with whatever the ministry is doing.”

She said, “Oh my sweet Luann, this is an answer to prayer! We have been asking God to open new doors for our speakers and writers that only He could open.  Walk through it my friend.”

So on Tuesday I called the station and said yes, without really knowing what I was signing up for yet understanding that God had a plan.

You gals sure seem like you have a blast serving Jesus. Tell me one thing you love about each of the women you lead with at EC.

Only one?? I love that I serve with women who understand the power of prayer in our every day lives.  We begin each day with prayer individually and corporately.

  1. My favorite place to read is Proverbs. I was the youngest Mother at my church for 6 years and Wing of Silver was a gift to me. It is a book all about proverbs. That gift helped me in so many ways as a teenage Mother. I still have it and refer to it often. I am now 55 and it especially is helpful today.

  2. I enjoy reading my Bible on my deck, early on a summer morning while sipping a cup of coffee. Everyone else is either away at work or asleep and it is so peaceful! I am looking forward to summer for that reason!

  3. HA! With technology and all, lately I have been loving reading my Bible via my cellphone! NO MORE EXCUSES! It even beeps at me to remind me I have not read my Bible that day! Before this, I read my Bible at my desk at home. Blessings

  4. Thanks for this opportunity. I enjoy reading my Bible and studying on our screen porch. Living in the Deep South, most days are sunny, breezy and the smell of the magnolias and honeysuckle will take your breath away. The lake is rippling and the birds are chirpping. I feel like everything is alright in God’s world and my little corner of it. In the midst of all this beauty, how can one doubt the existence of God?
