Germaine Copeland, founder of Word Ministries (WMI), is a writer and inspirational speaker. As she speaks, people are encouraged by her insight on praying effectively, many experience emotional healing, and learn the dividing line of soulish and spiritual praying. They learn how prayer promotes personal change and makes a difference in the spiritual climates within their realm of influence.
Germaine’s vision for Word Ministries (WMI) is to coordinate a Global intercessory prayer network that covers every nation, tribe, people and language with prayers that avail much. This strategic prayer connection will create an atmosphere of unity and agreement between followers of Jesus.
Germaine empowers God’s agents of prayer to approach the Throne of God confidently and fearlessly. She has a passion to see believers become intimately acquainted with the Father-God, the Creator of the universe, praying that His will might be done on earth as it is in heaven. They are equipped with the necessary prayer armor learning to wage a spiritual warfare for the reclaiming of communities and nations for Kingdom purposes. Business, government, the arts, media, education, religion and family are societal areas where God wants to reflect His glory. Germaine provides coaching and prayer counseling, calling on every member of the Body of Christ to take their place in the Global Company of Intercessors. Her teaching helps the listeners solidify their identities, enables them to “repair the defenses of the city, to take a stand for God and stand in the gap to protect this land so He won't have to destroy it.” (Ezekiel 22:30 MSG).
In the 1980’s Germaine served as Associate Pastor of Word of Life Church in Smyrna, Georgia, before serving as Senior Pastor for 5 years. She travels nationally and internationally conducting prayer schools, speaking at churches, conferences, and other groups.
Germaine organizes prayer teams for the purpose of spiritual and social transformation in the nations where they pray on location. These teams receive training in the art of prayer that releases the will of God into the atmosphere of the regions. She has led teams to the Cayman Islands and to North African countries where they have spread the love of God to unbelievers and strengthened followers of Jesus who are living in the various countries. Her books and teaching help others discover how to grow in grace and knowledge and live with new power, strength and victory as God promises.
