New Wineskin

Evangelist Edwards describes herself as a “new wineskin” and has a passion for prayer and intercession; for it was at a prayer meeting at the 1992 Church of God In Christ International Women’s Convention that God healed her of debilitating migraine headaches that she suffered with since she was six years old. She is truly a testimony of God’s healing power!

Evangelist Edwards much loved scripture is:

I Timothy 2:1-4 (KJV)
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth”.
