The latest issue of Simple Grace features an in-depth interview with Melissa Joan Hart. Melissa opened her heart to us about being a mother and how God loved away her doubts
Melissa grew up praying at meals and at bedtime, but she says that over the years, her prayer life has evolved into a passionate and amazing journey with the Lord. “I’m constantly having conversations in my head with God,” she says. “When I talk to myself, I believe I’m also talking to Him!”
Melissa says she experienced the true power of prayer through a young mom named Katherine Wolf, who after surviving a devastating stroke, started a ministry and blog about how hope heals. “I was so inspired by Katherine’s story that I joined a group of moms who were covering her with 24 hours of prayer,” Melissa describes. With a new baby of her own, Melissa chose the 2 am prayer shift…where she says the most amazing things happened between her and God. “It was such an experience to hold my newborn while everyone else slept and prayed for a solid hour over a woman I’d never met. It was very special to realize how all of our prayers surrounded her, bathed her. It drew me closer to God…it really changed my life.”
