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.

Freedom Starts in the Mind: As a Man Thinketh

Release Time

To be released in 2022

The Mission of the Book

So many people walking around look as if they are free, but they are being held captive in a mental prison. The charges have been brought against them, and they have been prosecuted with condemnation, guilt, despair, shame, anxiety, hopelessness, unworthiness, depression, and suicidal thoughts—for which they are serving life imprisonment.

For those people, this book offers the key to freedom. It acknowledges that we all struggle with things that we’ve convinced ourselves we can’t escape. We have fallen victim to this false prophecy that we can’t be or do any better. Freedom Starts in the Mind: As a Man Thinketh will bring comfort and encouragement as the stories within offer clarity and strength and serve as the reader’s guide to creating their blueprint for freedom.

As a powerful resource in the pursuit of freedom from a negative mindset and limiting beliefs, the book is filled with real-life, inspirational stories from 12 authors who were once prisoners and are now set free, walking boldly and without judgement in their purpose. It will serve our readers, both women and men, to step forward with fearlessness and live a purposeful and rewarding life.

We will be taking up to 12 co-authors with an inspiring story to participate in this powerful book Compiled by Reea Rodney.  We will be doing our best-selling campaigns, publishing, and printing to release our powerful book in 2021.

Rhonda Small Peters
International Bestselling Author

I have always aspired to be a writer, but somehow, I could never take those pivotal first steps to making that dream a reality. Coach Reea helped me to bridge the gap between dreaming of being an author and actually becoming one when I got the opportunity to be one of the co-authors in her Anthology series Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste. I must say that she is amazing at what she does; her professionalism coupled with her passion really inspired and motivated me. She’s very supportive and encouraging—you almost feel as though she’s willing you to succeed. Giving up is not an option. I absolutely love her step-by-step approach to writing, which made it less challenging. Another bonus to her program is that she encourages you to tap into your giftings and abilities and explore alternative avenues to earn multiple streams of income, using your book as a springboard to financial success. To help you get started, she offers specifically tailored courses that are very detailed and simple to implement. I went from someone who wanted to write to an International Bestselling Author in less than 90 days. All in all, I would recommend Author/Coach Reea, simply because she’s amazing at what she does. In fact, if I had to use one word to describe her and her program, it would be phenomenal.

Michelle W. Fuqua
International Bestselling Author

WOW! That was an amazing experience, and I would do it again! The dedication, service delivery, and dedication that Dara Publishing provided is incredible. I want to talk about The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman anthology project and its visionary, Reea Rodney, who is the owner of Dara Publishing. When she invited me to participate in this anthology, I was not really sure what I was going to get out of it. But through Reea’s program, we created a powerful, life-changing book. She taught us the business end of the book publication, such as how to find speaking opportunities, the ins and outs of retail business, and how to turn this experience into coaching. I want to encourage you first to get a copy of the book. But then, if you have any desires to publish, Reea’s got some other anthologies coming up that I would recommend you think about getting in. If you want to publish your own book, I recommend Dara Publishing as an excellent service, and Reea is just the person to take you through the journey. So again, I want to thank Reea and Dara Publishing for everything that I learned as we created this book. I also want to thank Reea for your willingness to give and share and the love that she showed as we completed this business endeavor.

Debra Turner-Ray
International Bestselling Author

I would like to thank Reea Rodney and Dara Publishing for the opportunity to be a part of the Anthology project. Reea took 12 strangers and turned them into sisters/friends. I am truly grateful to have been able to partake in this project, which has made us not only #1 Bestselling Authors but International Bestselling Authors. I thank God for her patience and her love of God to reach such an awesome goal. I can’t wait to work with her again. To God Be the Glory!  

Tanisa Newby
International Bestselling Author

My name is Tanisa Newby, co-author, and number-one bestselling and international author. The inspiration behind The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman was birthed and came to life thanks to Reea Rodney of Dara Publishing, along with the stories of 11 incredible women. Reea is a phenomenal woman—very serious about getting the work done while exercising lots of patience. Her workshops were on time and informative, giving step-by-step guidelines to take us to the next level of our book writing and publishing journey. Being a co-author of a bestseller is an amazing feeling, and I couldn’t have gotten this far without the help of our coach paying attention to every detail. I had the opportunity to do podcasts, blogs, and other interviews to promote and share my personal story. I would recommend this service to anyone who is interested in sharing their own story, be it in the form of poetry, a journal, or a children’s book. Coach Reea has all the resources to make your book a reality. I am honored to have been able to share my story with the help of Dara Publishing, and I am looking forward to working with Coach Reea on my upcoming children book series.

Pastor Marlene Asseviero
International Bestselling Author

My name is Pastor Marlene Asseviero, and I had the privilege of working with Mrs. Reea Rodney of Dara Publishing Company on an Anthology Book Project. Mrs. Rodney was my writing coach for thirteen weeks; she was precise, thorough, and very informative with her coaching. I doubt I’d be a published author today without the training, patience, and confidence afforded to me by Mrs. Rodney. Her support, knowledge, understanding, and encouragement was unfailing, and her belief in me gave me the strength and confidence to keep on writing. I left each coaching session armed to tackle the next phase of the writing-to-publishing process. If you are writing a book, trying to land a book proposal, or struggling to finish a manuscript on time, I strongly recommend Mrs. Reea Rodney of Dara Publishing Company. Call her today, set up your first appointment, and get busy on fulfilling your dream.

Ms. Fenyx Blue
International Bestselling Author

I have published five books in multiple genres, but I must say, I have had the most enjoyable time working with Reea Rodney during her Anthology Program. Reea knows how to blend business with building relationships effortlessly. She overdelivers when it comes to content, leadership, and vision. I truly enjoyed that faith was a part of our process: The 12 ladies who participated in the program prayed together along the journey until the end of the project. We continue to reach out to one another even now. Reea was able to teach all levels of clients, from those who were new to publishing to veterans like me. We all walked away with knowledge, experience, and an amazing product. There are many anthology programs that deliver a book, but Reea’s program was a life-changing experience because it was a mastermind on changing your mindset and using your talents and assets. I fully recommend Coach Reea Rodney to any writer who wants to be a success. “If you want to be a success, work with the best...Coach Reea Rodney.

Deborah Carrington
International Bestselling Author

I’m Deborah Carrington, co-author and student of Coach Reea Rodney. I met Reea a little over a year ago, and she offered me the opportunity to be a part of her Anthology, The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman: The Power of a Mother’s Prayer. I came into this program without any knowledge of writing a book or how much work needed to be done, yet with every challenge I faced, Coach Reea was there to encourage and motivate me. She is an amazing Coach and Teacher, Friend, Nurturer, Prayer Warrior, and most of all, a Beautiful Person. I found some parts of me that I’d lost, and I left her program with Clarity, Vision, and Peace. I have so much work to do, but the tools Coach Reea has equipped me with I will take along with me on my journey. What I enjoyed the most about this program was working alongside 11 dynamic women, most of whom were strangers, but it only took us about two weeks to form a Sisterhood/Movement. I’ll cherish this experience forever, especially becoming an International Bestselling Author, which never in my wildest dreams did I think was possible. To be honest, I feel like I’ve grown a few inches taller with pride and honor. I highly recommend Coach Reea. I say with confidence that working with her will change your life in the most positive way. I am elated that I seized the opportunity to invest in myself—to do something for me—and the investment was well worth it. Thank you, Coach! You rock!

Chandele Morris
International Bestselling Author

I was an author in the Anthology, The Secret Prayer of a Righteous Black Woman: The Power of a Mother’s Prayer. I was grateful for the opportunity because I love working with Reea. This would be my second book with her. She coached me to self-publish my first book, I’m Just a Kid: A Social Emotional Book About Self-Regulation. Not only is Reea a coach but she becomes your friend. When you’re doing an anthology with her, you feel valued, and you become a part of a team. A great thing about working with Reea as a book coach is that she is also a life coach. She listens to you, and as you write, she is your cheerleader. That is not something you can pay for. It is rare, and it is what makes Reea stand out from the crowd. As you write, Reea really gets you to think. She encourages you to look deep inside your heart and truly get to know yourself—even the parts that you may not be aware of. After working with Reea, you begin to learn things about yourself, and it makes you stronger—it makes you wiser, and it makes your writing even more relatable. I would recommend anyone to work with Reea on any anthology she is doing or as a consultant if you are looking to self-publish a book of your own!

Irina Curenton
International Bestselling Author

Reea is an excellent coach who believes in producing quality material. She is all about excellence and holding others as well as herself to a high standard. Before I joined Reea’s Anthology Program, I had no idea how to publish a book or all that the publishing process entailed. By walking through her 12-week Anthology Program, I learned so much more than just about the writing process; we learned how to take our Author’s Journey and turn it into a business with multiple streams of revenue. She is an excellent teacher who gives personalized attention and offers to walk you through every step of the process with excellence. Reea’s program is perfect for those who want to write and publish their books using a hands-on approach. She delivers all that she promises and more! I highly recommend Coach Reea and Dara Publishing to any aspiring author who wants to achieve Bestselling Author and Bestselling International Author status. She gets the job done! Thank you, Reea, for all you do and your commitment to excellence! You are appreciated!

Leslieann Jack
International Bestselling Author

Coach Reea always delivers, and her Anthology Program did just that and more. One of my family members had participated in one of Coach Reea’s programs before, so going into this, I was confident in her program, and I especially appreciated the way it was structured. I’m a first-time writer, and her program made me into an Amazon Bestselling and International Bestselling Author, so believe me when I say that Coach Reea’s programs deliver. I enjoyed her sessions; she makes it fun yet informative. Her vision for each author was strategically thought out to accommodate every level of writing—from first-time writers like myself to established authors. Her program took everyone to the next level. She was accessible to her clients; everyone was treated professionally and with respect. I appreciated that because, not knowing if I had it in me to write my story, she created a safe space for a beginner to feel confident amongst those who had written books before. This program was a great experience for me, and I would recommend it to every writer—no matter your level of writing—because it can take you to the next level as an author. There are benefits in this program that are strategically placed in a step-by-step format to help you monetize your book and yourself. It is indeed worth the investment in more ways than one. Thank you, Coach Reea!
