Soul-Lifted Sisters Prayer Ministry & Outreach
Soul-Lifted Sisters Prayer Ministry was founded by Minister Erania Witherspoon affectionately known as (Sister Rainey), under the guidance and leading of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in May 2012.
This vision shown by the Holy Spirit is to empower, encourage, help, love, and pray one for another! She shared this message with her biological sister; and the rest was history! Sister told her to not be afraid and move forward with God’s purpose for her life.
Minister Rainey began to pray for women in need of individual prayer daily, and would text prayer request to other prayer warriors to stand in agreement with her. She would also send weekly inspirational updates and scriptures to anyone willing to read it.
Just 3 months later on August 12, 2012 Soul-Lifted Sisters joined Facebook social media. By joining this social media, many doors opened to reach more women around the world. After receiving revelation, the ministry was officially birth.
On October 6, 2012, Soul-Lifted Sisters filed for registration of fictitious name. This would allow the ministry to officially use the name “Soul-Lifted Sisters”. Our ministry name was inspired by a mother’s day card received from a dear friend.
October 12, 2012 our organization received its FEIN # from the Internal Revenue Service. November 16, 2012 Soul-Lifted Sisters filed for Article of Incorporation establishing us as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and Tax Exempt.
December 6, 2012 continuing to press forward on the mission and vision to bring women together, our weekly Thursday night intercessory prayer line was birthed.
June 14, 2013 our website launched (www.soul-liftedsisters.com).
June 22, 2013 after just 1 year of Ministry we birthed our “Food for Soul” Monthly Outreach. We go out and minister the word of God, offer Prayer, care packs, and feed over 100 less fortunate men and women each last Saturday of the month. To date we have served over 10,000+ meals. Many years later we are still faithfully serving and ministering to our homeless community.
May 19, 2014 we finally had enough seeds to open a ministry bank account.
June 1, 2014 cards of encouragement was birthed. We send out cards monthly to the sick and bereaved families.
January 1, 2016 we moved into our next phase of our ministry of outreach - The birth of our Chemotherapy Care Packs! This was inspired while visiting and ministering to a young lady fighting cancer in San Diego, CA. We provide complimentary chemo care packs and ship them around the world to both women and men fighting cancer.
May 19, 2017 we hosted our first multi-day conference events.
March 10, 2018 we launched our first monthly Prayer Walk.
January 1, 2021 we launched our Volunteerism Scholarship Award
May 2022 we celebrated 10 Years of Ministry on the Seas.
God has spoken and has shown me that we are not done yet. This is just the beginning of the work He has laid out for Soul-Lifted Sisters Prayer Ministry.
Our other services include volunteering at shelters, providing support to abused women and single mothers. Workshops, Counseling sessions, nursing home visits, monthly prayer walks, prayer/daily follow-up calls to the sick and shut in.
As communicated we are not a church! We are just a group of ordinary people with a big heart to help others! We believe in the power of prayer! Since we are not a church collecting regular tithes and offerings, we rely heavily on your monthly seed support. Please consider becoming a monthly supporter to help do God’s will! It is important you all understand and believe in the works we are doing for the community.
We are continuing in the race!!
