Fullness of Joy is a ministry founded by Elder Cyndy VanZandt former known as the Downtown Houston Prayer Warriors. The ministry was birthed Downtown Houston in the United Methodist Church at the 12:00 lunch hour.
I noticed many women attended the Chapel using their lunch hour for prayer. Overtime God drew our hearts and desires to pray into a combined effort. My initial desire was to be there and pray but God had other plans. The prayer group began to grow, and I was setup by God to establish this group as “Downtown Houston Prayer Warriors” (DHPW). Women and men from various denominations and backgrounds became a part of this life changing ministry.
Women and men from various denominations and backgrounds became a part of this life changing ministry This newly established ministry became a powerful gathering of women of “God given destiny” and designed. This ministry became a place of encouragement, inspiration and motivation where we learned to recognize and ultimately reach our destiny and purpose. We were on track to fulfill God’s Word as stated in (Jeremiah 29:11). “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
The Women of God tremendously and we had yearly Retreats, Prayer Conference, Shut-in even gave donations to family in need. I am so amazed today to know that many of the women are in ministry, entrepreneurs, authors, praise dancers and motivational speakers.
The Word of God says, “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2). The Downtown Houston Prayer Warriors we were a force to be reckon with. We fasted, prayed and sought the Lord with our whole heart. Today, we are Fullness of Joy Ministries.
