The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman: The Power of a Mother’s Prayer

Release Time

Published on August 29th, 2021

The Mission of the Book

It takes a lot of courage to share our deepest parenting worries, but worry is what we do as parents. Many do not realize the power we have available to us when we take our authority in prayer and learn how to surrender it all unto God. The truth be told, there would be no such thing as doubt, fear, or anxiety when it comes to our children because we would be on our faces before God, storming the heavenly realms in battle with the darkness and evil forces in our world for them.

Unfortunately, all Black mothers live in a state of deepened emotions. We feel joy each time we see our child smile, excited watching them learn to tie their shoes, proud when they graduate the different levels of their academic journey. And we feel fear. Black mothers carry a fear that the part of them that goes out into the world every day could meet harm. 

In the United States alone, police brutality is among the leading causes of death for Black men and boys, and racism has been linked to poor mental health outcomes. This fear is not a 

hypothetical for mothers of Black children—it is a daily reality, and not just for those of us with sons but for mothers with daughters too. The mission of this book is to bring hope, enlightenment, and meaningful cultural transformation to many mothers from our complex and intersecting stories.

The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman: The Power of a Mother’s Prayer will be a powerful resource, providing wisdom, comfort, and prayer for Black moms all over the world. The real-life, inspirational stories and powerful prayers within will bring peace, lightening the weight of unwanted burdens and worries that Black moms have been carrying since the day they learned of their conception.

The Mission of the Book

This book is a powerful resource for those seeking to develop the ability to think outside the box, stretch outside their comfort zone and beyond their imagination, and experience courage, compassion, strength, and faith. It will ignite the imagination to take the road less traveled and succeed beyond expectations.

This book positions the co-authors as experts and influencers who dare to be vulnerable and allow their followers to see how leaders cope in challenging times and circumstances. It will serve our readers to step forward as women and men in a more empowered and purposeful way. As times continue to be even more trying, people worldwide are experiencing collective trauma due to the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. 

We dare you to challenge your negative thoughts. Reframe the situation and see what positive outcomes are possible. Choose to see the glass half-full—find optimism in a time of the pandemic. We can’t always choose what happens to us, but we can choose how we respond. Difficult times sometimes bring out the best in people. If there is a modicum of hope in our current circumstance, we are also collectively experiencing a period of growth and resiliency, which has the potential to push us toward a more optimistic outlook.

Release Time

To be release during the first quarter of 2023

The Mission of the Book

Deep down, something in us wants completeness. God has “set eternity in the human heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11), and we long for him and the whole life he promises. However, trauma leads to unhappiness, and unhealed or emotional wounds cause pain and anguish on a deep, psychological level.

Reactions to trauma may include lack of emotions, depression, substance abuse disorder, fear, anger, sadness, guilt, shame, eating disorders, anxiety disorder, learned helplessness, and post-traumatic effects such as trauma-related physical health issues, sleep disorders, gastrointestinal issues, etc. All of which prevent us from living the life God has designed for us. Through faith, self-introspection, self-discovery, and acceptance, readers can discover the purpose behind their trauma and be transformed by renewing their minds and healing from their emotional wounds by reading and applying the tools within.

Faith and trauma can have a complicated relationship, as a traumatic event can disturb a person’s confidence and cause them to question the existence of God. But we also know that many people can heal from trauma because of their faith; this is our mission. In You Were Meant to Be Here: Healing From Past Trauma and Finding Inner Peace, Reea and fourteen dynamic authors share their personal stories of living through a traumatic time in their life and how they overcame and healed. This book is filled with real-life, inspirational stories from fifteen authors who are survivors of a traumatic experience that had them living a life of emotional pain at one point. This book will serve our readers, women, and men, to step forward with fearlessness and live a purposeful and rewarding life.

We will take up to 15 coauthors with inspiring stories to participate in this powerful book compilation. We will be doing a best-selling campaign, publishing, and printing to release our powerful book in 2023.
