As we study the lives of praying women in the Bible, we find important truths that God wants us to grasp. They lived in a different time we live in, but we find ourselves facing the same issues they faced.

Yet even more, these women show us there is a God who sees us where we are and loves us for who we are. He is the one who hovers over all the pages of the Bible, shaping lives, rescuing hearts, healing sicknesses, raising what was dead to life, and assigning high callings to those who choose to follow him and have faith in him.

The Bible is filled with powerful, strong, women of faith, praying women, who made an impact for us today. There are so many powerful praying women in the Bible who was honored by their faith. We will always remember the lives they lived, the prayers they prayed, and the faith they exhibited.

Strong women are our examples. Our mothers, grandmothers, some who has gone before, praying women, strong and courageous women of God, women of faith, and examples for us today.

While plenty of women in the Bible were strong, capable women, these ladies did not sit around waiting for someone else to get the job done. They feared God, lived faithfully, and was faithful in prayer. They did what they needed to do.

Eve was given the promise of a Son. (Genesis 3:15-16)

Hagar was seen by God and given water when she was thirsty. (Genesis 21:15-19)

Deborah was a judge for the nation of Israel and led the men into battle. (Judges 4:1-9)

And God chose a young woman, Mary, to bring the Savior into the world. (Luke 1:26-38)

There are many great examples of strong women of prayer in the Bible to learn from. Women who play a powerful role in God’s story of redemption throughout Scripture. Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah, Miriam the prophetess, Deborah the Judge, Huldah the prophetess, Abigail, who married David, Rahab, and Esther, all these women were examples for us today.

Who Was a Praying Woman in the Bible?

All throughout the Bible, we read stories of praying women who was strong in faith, and women of prayer. They had faith to believe that God answered prayer.

Here are some praying women of the Bible who made an impact on the women of today.

Let’s look more deeply into their lives and see the evidence.

Eve

The first woman God created was Eve. The story of Eve is famous because of what she did. She sinned by going against God’s will and eating fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil – something God had forbidden them to do.

From there, sin and all the things tied to sin, entered the world. Though it is important to talk to your children about the origins of the Fall, there are a few more things we can glean from Eve. 

  1. Eve was made in the image of God. This knowledge reminds us that girls and women are image bearers of God. Why is this important? It reminds us of ladies of our inherent value. This statement is not just for your daughters, your sons were also made in the image of God. Teaching your children about how they are image bearers encourages them to respect one another in how God made them.
  2. Eve was created as a helpmeet or an ezer. The Hebrew word ezer means ally or rescuer. It means strong helper. Eve was made to be complementary to Adam. Not subordinate to Adam, but an ally with different strengths that helped Adam in the garden. 
  3. Eve was the first mother on earth. She was the first woman to give birth and have a child. Though there is pain in childbirth, there is beauty in God’s creation of human life in Eve’s womb. He continues to create life today in the womb of women around the world.

The Lord created women for a unique purpose. Sharing this with you children helps show them God’s beautiful design.

“The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living” (Gen. 3:20).

Sarah

Sarah, Abraham’s wife, was one of two women mentioned in Hebrews 11 who showed great faith in God. Though Abraham and Sarah were unable to have children for many years, God promised them a son. It is hard to imagine all the pain and uncertainty they must have endured as the years ticked by and they tried to hold on to God’s promise.  Although Sarah made many mistakes, God kept his promise. 

At first, Sarah doubted she could become pregnant in her old age; the Bible tells us that she even laughed at God Genesis 18:12. But over time, she chose to believe God and trust in His timing and faithfulness.

And even in her old age, this beautiful, strong, faith-filled woman gave birth to her son Isaac, fulfilling the word of the Lord spoken years before and becoming a mother of a nation and a descendant of Christ.

Sarah’s story is such a powerful reminder to us today that when God speaks His promises over our lives, He will do what He says He will do. Nothing is too difficult for Him.

Rahab

Rahab was also one of the two women mentioned in the “Hall of Faith passage.” Though we don’t know all of Rahab’s circumstances, we do know this: God took the brokenness and shame of this courageous woman and turned it around for great good (Joshua 2; 6:22-23).

As a prostitute in Jericho, Rahab lived at the edge of the city, right on the wall. When the Israelite spies sought refuge, Rahab chose to hide them. This brave woman believed that Israel’s God was a God she could fully trust in, even in the face of possible death.

God rewarded Rahab, providing protection for her and her entire family, and even appointing her to be in the lineage of Christ. Though Rahab’s past sought to hold her down, she chose to rise above her situation and allow God to work a miracle in her and through her. We still have so much to learn from this brave woman today. She was so very brave. She put others before her own life.

Related: The Story of Deborah in the Bible

Deborah

Deborah was the only woman judge of Israel. She was a prophetess, advisor, and wise counselor for her people. And when called on to lead, she bravely stepped up to accomplish what others were afraid to do.

She not only led her people into battle, but more importantly, she influenced them to live for God (Judges 4).

Her life and service show us how important it is to be concerned for the welfare and spiritual condition of those we have been given to lead, and not just look out for our own success.

This courageous woman’s life reminds us that God can accomplish great things through those who are willing to obey His leading.

The Bible is clear that God calls women to follow Him and to lead His people. He did then, years ago, and He does still today. May we be found faithful to walk in His guidance, to lead well, and to live strong in His promises of protection and faithfulness over our lives.

Ruth

A woman of deep loyalty and grace, Ruth was determined to remain faithful to those she loved, even when it meant a potentially more difficult path. This popular verse has been recited by many throughout the years, pledging their loyalty and love: 

“Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay, Your people will be my people and your God my God” (Ruth 1:16).

Ruth showed discernment in following God’s lead and being willing to listen to the wisdom of her mother-in-law, Naomi, as they walked through uncertain times. She worked hard and took initiative when she could have just run back to an easier life or complained about her difficulties. And God brought her to Boaz, her kinsman-redeemer, who was a blessing far beyond what she had ever expected. She even became an ancestor of Jesus through Boaz’s family line.

“But Ruth replied, ‘Do not urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God’” (Ruth 1:16).

Hannah

After many years of longing for a child, Hannah knew that God was the only one who could hear her prayer. She trusted His ability to work on her behalf, even when she did not understand her painful circumstances. And when God answered her prayer, she gave Him praise.

“Then Hannah prayed and said, ‘My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord, my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance. There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you, there is no Rock like our God’” (1 Samuel 2:1-2). This beautiful, anointed prayer of Hannah’s continues for another eight verses.

Her story reminds us of the great faithfulness, power, and wisdom of God. There are never accidents in God’s timing and purpose.

“It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the Lord will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the Lord will judge the ends of the earth” (1 Sam. 2:10).

Abigail

Abigail is mentioned in 1 Samuel. Though Abigail was in an unhappy marriage, she is able to act quickly to prevent a battle and bloodshed from occurring, saving many lives through her courage.

And yet somehow, she was able to look at a story much larger than hers and find strength in the storm. She made a wise move. God honored her courage, and she played a pivotal role in his larger narrative.

Related: Characteristics of Esther in the Bible

Esther

Often, we read this story and only think of Esther’s beauty and her royal position as queen. But we forget where she came from.

Life had not gone Esther’s way. She was orphaned and had suffered great loss, even at a young age. She was then whisked away from everything she knew and taken to the king’s palace. Yet even when gifted with such a royal position, she still encountered hardship. Her people faced tragedy and destruction. She surely felt alone. She endured trial after trial, yet we see hope woven through every part of her story.

God is always at work even when we cannot see the whole story. And that sets the stage for great things to happen: “…And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)This courageous woman faced a difficult situation with God’s wisdom and grace. She did not rely on anything or anyone except God Himself. And He acted powerfully on behalf of Queen Esther and her people.

Mary (Jesus Mother)

Mary was chosen by God to bring His Son into the world. Even at a young age, her obedience and courage to do whatever God asked of her was amazing. The Bible says that she “found favor with God.” And though her mind must have wrestled with many of the “how’s” and “whys,” she answered His call by saying, “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as you have said” (Luke 1:26-38). When Mary visited Elizabeth, she burst into a powerful song of praise to God, which is widely known today as “The Magnificat” (Luke 1:46-55).

God’s word tells of Christ’s birth, his early days, and how Mary “treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19). And just as this strong, loving mother watched her baby take his first breath, the Bible reveals that she also watched Him suffer and breathe His last. Held by a Mighty God, she was entrusted to raise the Savior of the world. And she fulfilled her purpose with such strength and grace.

The Lord God will give Him the place where his early father David sat. He will be King over the family of Jacob forever and His nation will have no end.’” (Luke 1:26-33)

Elizabeth

The Bible records that after years of not being able to have a child, this close relative of Mary’s had become pregnant with her son at a crucial time in history. We are reminded through Elizabeth’s story that God’s timing is always perfect, though it may often seem “off” to us. For her son, John the Baptist, was destined to be the forerunner of Christ Himself.

When Elizabeth was visited by Mary, and heard her greeting, the Scripture says, “the baby leaped in her womb,” the Holy Spirit filled her, and she praised God, offering up blessings over Mary and her son (Luke 1:39-45). Elizabeth’s life is characterized by her continued faithfulness to God, even when she may have wondered what God was doing or why He was not answering her prayers for a child. What a wonderful example of giving worship and praise to God for accomplishing in her life what He alone could do. 

Mary Magdalene

In the story of Jesus, she was also prominent. She was a great witness of the Savior’s miracles.

In her life alone, Jesus delivered her from seven demons (Luke 8:2). That was her turning point in life. She became a supporter and close follower of Jesus in His ministry.

Her dedication can be seen in her presence in the most historical time of the Redeemer’s life. She was there when Jesus was crucified (John 19:25), and she had the privilege to first see the risen Savior after His resurrection (John 20:15-16).

She was the first bearer of the good news of which, until today, we, Christians, are spreading to the world: Jesus has risen!

Hagar

Hagar experienced many hardships in her life. “She was Sarah’s servant and when Sarah could not have children, she gave Hagar to her husband in the hopes Hagar would conceive. When Hagar became pregnant Sarah grew jealous and threw her out of their home,” the article on GuidePosts.com writes.

In the end, though, an angel met Hagar in the desert and blessed her with a child named Ishmael.

Miriam

Miriam was a prophetess and Moses’s older sister.

She helped to save Moses when he was only an infant. Moses’s mother left him in a basket to protect him from being murdered by Pharaoh due to his being a Jewish baby. When Pharaoh’s daughter found Moses and had mercy on him, Miriam devoted herself to Pharaoh’s daughter in order to raise him so that they could remain together.

We can credit Miriam with instilling Moses with a devotion to the Lord that manifested itself in later days, which enabled his openness to divine encounter with the one true God and his moral conscience which guided Israel all the way to the promised land.

“Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing. Miriam sang to them: “Sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. Both horse and driver he has hurled into the sea.’” (Ex. 15:20–21)

Ruth

Ruth the Moabite was an example of unwavering faith bravery in the Bible. After being widowed early in life, she stuck with her mother-in-law and followed God for all her days, believing he would provide for her.

Anna

Anna was a remarkable woman of prayer. Her name, which means “grace,” defined her well. She was a precious gift from God. After the death of her husband, she chose not to remarry, instead engaging in a 100% focus on eternal matters. Prayer, fasting and gratitude to God was the outflow of her devotion. However, her worship through the night and day demonstrated bold love by pointing people to Jesus. She anticipated the coming of Christ, by speaking of Christ! A praying woman has the credibility and caring spirit to speak of Jesus. People listen to pure love.

The Bible says to pray “at all times” and “without ceasing.” This often becomes a challenge in the mundane reality of life. Perhaps no one knew this better than prophetess Anna. She spent most of her life as a widow. God led her to pray for the coming Messiah, but after decades of waiting and praying, He had not arrived. Still, Anna continued to pray for the Messiah and for others. We can infer that the more she prayed, the more she learned about God and His plans. Consistent prayer will do the same for you.

A praying woman is important because she keeps that armor strong – even for those who may not be saved or may not pray as much.

The Importance of a Praying Woman

Not only does God tell us to pray, but He also gives us examples of people who pray, prayers to copy, and even a formula for prayer straight from Jesus. 

Prayer is important in everyone’s life. One of the great things about praying is that it reflects the heart of God. And when a praying woman prays, she reflects the heart of God. She has God’s heart. Prayer is so important; it stops the attacks of the devil. A woman who prays is prepared for spiritual warfare. She is striped in the Whole Armor of God. She will go into daily battles for herself and those around her – friends, family, co-workers, and church members. She puts on the full armor of God so that she can resist the enemy’s forces against those she loves. Whether you are a prayerful woman, or a woman looking to increase your prayer life, spending time in prayer every day will increase your faith walk.

When Jesus taught His followers to pray in Matthew 6, He gave us a pattern to follow. Most of us are very familiar with the Lord’s Prayer and many of us have Matthew 6:9-13 memorized. But have you ever noticed that the pronouns in the prayer are plural and not singular? 

Prayer is simply a conversation with God. Just like you are talking with a friend. When talking with God, you do not have to use BIG words. There are no special words or phrases. God hears our prayers, no matter how simple or eloquent.

When we are not sure what to pray, we can always know that when we pray the Word of God, our prayers align with the will of God. Commit a few verses to memory and start by praying those aloud each day.

What Happens When a Woman Prays?

Prayer can take you where nothing else can. As a woman of prayer, you can pray the power of heaven on earth. The impossible becomes possible. The need is provided. Prayers are answered. Prayer is not a list or a formality, it is, at the core, an engagement with God. Prayer changes the trajectory of life.

“For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)

“They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus.” (Acts 1:14)

There is something amazing when a woman prays. Her prayers are so powerful as it moves mountains.

 If you have ever longed for the opportunity to connect heart and soul with someone … We are better praying together.

We are not meant to walk this journey alone. We crave the companionship that is found in the fervent prayer of those who seek Him together.

Confess your faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. – James 5:16

The tremendous power of earnest prayer is dynamic and effectual both in power and in its ability to restore our broken hearts.

When women pray there is a connection with God. They are one with Him.

There is just something so freeing when we gather in prayer, it is necessary to be intentional.  As we come together in prayer, we are united as one. All those things that keep us back from community, from connecting, and from celebrating each other is left at the door of prayer.

Women who pray together are breaking down barriers that have been erected by years of hurt and decades of deceit.   Covering their families in the blood of Jesus as they pray for them.

Praying for those God-friends to come and walk alongside each one of you today, to speak into your hearts the gift of love and friendship that God has ordained when women pray together.

It helps us focus on God and eternity instead of the temporary things of this world. It’s a powerful weapon that God has given us to fight against the enemy.

A prayerful woman is capable of doing great exploits for the kingdom of God in this world.

Praying women hold their families together.  They know that it is God who started the institution of marriage and family. And He is the only one who can hold it together. 

This is what ties together each of these praying women of the Bible.  When these women prayed, they got results. They received answers to prayer.

The Power of a Praying Woman in the Bible

How powerful is it?
The power of prayer should not be underestimated. James 5:16-18 declares, “…The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again, he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.” God most definitely listens to prayers, answers prayers, and moves in response to prayers.

The Word of God is full of accounts describing the power of prayer in various situations. The power of prayer has overcome enemies (Psalm 6:9-10), conquered death (2 Kings 4:3-36), brought healing (James 5:14-15), and defeated demons (Mark 9:29). God, through prayer, opens eyes, changes heart, heals wounds, and grants wisdom (James 1:5). The power of prayer should never be underestimated because it draws on the glory and might of the infinitely powerful God of the universe! Daniel 4:35 proclaims, “All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: ‘What have you done?'”

Prayer + The Word go hand in hand. If you want to become a woman of prayer, then here is my challenge: Become a woman of the Word! The Bible fuels a prayer life. It shows us how God worked in the past and reminds us how He can work today. Do not limit God through unbelief. The same God who parted the Red Sea, brought down the walls of Jericho, and raised Jesus from the dead is the One who hears You. When you are immersed in God’s Word, then your prayers will come from a deep well of faith.

We are required to pray. Despite the fact that God foresee our needs before we even think to ask Him. We can trust that God, in His providence, will meet our needs – but we are still required to pray.

If you want to learn how to be a praying woman, a woman of prayer, spend time in the Word of God, Meditate on it day and night. Surrender completely to the Holy Spirit for instructions and directions.

But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future]. JOHN 16:13

We only have to look at the example of Jesus if we want to learn how to become a praying woman. While Jesus was on earth, he spent a lot of time praying.

  • He prayed in the early mornings.
  • He prayed at night.
  • He prayed before he performed miracles.
  • He prayed for strength.
  • He prayed on the cross.
  • He prays for us even now in heaven.

There is power when a woman prays. All through the Bible, powerful prayers of women are recorded. There are many women in the Bible whose example we can look towards when we think about how to pray. A praying woman reflects the heart of God. Never underestimate the power of a praying woman.

Never, ever, ever underestimate the importance of prayer—your prayer. As we read in James 5:16, “The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.” And once you have prayed, keep praying . . . yet do not worry. You may not see instant results, but trust that God is faithful—He is working.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 commands us to “PRAY CONTINUALLY” and I was ready to become a woman that prays regularly and powerfully.

Praying Women of the Bible Made and Impact on the Women Today

God’s Best is Worth Praying For! Prayer is a force that brings the power of heaven to earth. I want to encourage the praying woman reading this to pray bold prayers. If you have a desire or vision, pray it into existence! If you have a longing, take it to the Jesus. We partner with God through our prayers to bring about the will of God in our lives. God’s best is worth praying for!

Scripture Quotes about Women in the Bible

“Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.” ~ Titus 2:3-5

“The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.” ~ Proverbs 14:1

“Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.” ~ 1 Timothy 2:11-15
