How Does "I Lift My Eyes" fulfill its Ministry Statement?I Lift My Eyes Prayer Ministry The prayer ministry reaches thousands per month, who come along our way to learn how to become more effective in their own prayer lives. Others wish to develop a deeper intimacy in their prayer walk. I have written several practical articles on prayer that have been used in local churches across the world. As of January 2015, we closed our prayer board on this website as this area of our ministry site was under utilized. Most people now post prayer requests on Social Media sites.
As time goes on, and I see the need, I add new articles to encourage others along their path of prayer and intercession.

Who Is Behind the Ministry?
Hello, I'm Katherine Walden. As you surf through the pages of this site, hopefully you will gain insight into myself, the founder of I Lift My Eyes Web Ministries. I am a Christian, and my life is found in Christ, so His name is sprinkled through out all these pages. I live with a neurological disorder called Charcot Marie Tooth Disease, but I have not allowed my disability to stop me from living an active, productive life. I worked with Youth With A Mission for 13 years and finally settled in Alberta, Canada. As my disability has progressed to the place I can no longer work in the regular workforce, I decided, upon the advice of my doctors, pastors and family to hang up the traditional work hat.
However, someone once said, "You can take the minister out of the pulpit but you can't take the ministry out of the minister." When I discovered the internet in 1994, I had no idea how the Lord would begin to challenge me to continue ministering around the world without taking a step from my apartment. Thousands are blessed by the daily quotes I send out, thousands of visitors visit the ministry's websites on a daily basis and thousands find encouragement through the devotionals. I am actually reaching more people on a daily basis than I would have ever imagined reaching when I was a more traditional missionary!
I welcome donations to help cover ministry expenses such as software, internet fees, web hosting and education directly related to my ministry work. Although I self-publish the archived devotionals in an ebook format, at present, I actually swallow the costs of self-publishing and have yet to break even. However, writers must write, and write I must! I am truly grateful and blessed beyond measure when I receive the occasional donation, no matter what size that donation might be!
I am an active member of Harvest Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Alberta, Canada and have been a member since 1992. I serve the local body through overseeing our emergency prayer line, mentoring several younger women, providing a listening ear and wise counsel, and of course, prayer!
From my earliest years as a Christian to the present day, I have gleaned wisdom and spiritual subsistence from many Christian streams and denominations. I was led to the Lord at the age of 10 by two Baptist ladies who held a Sunday School class during a hospital stay. I never saw the ladies again but am grateful for their influence. Looking back over the years, I see the fruit of the seeds they planted so long ago. I deepened my walk, committing myself to Christ through the mentoring of a born-again priest in my last years of high school. I attended a Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada church for a few years before I joined Youth With A Mission. During my 14 years in missions, I fellowshiped in local churches around the world, gleaning wisdom and truth in diverse denominations, such as: Baptist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Anglican and non-denominational. I worshiped while sitting on bamboo mats in refugee camps and while sitting on plush padded pews in mega-churches in the United States.
I have been profoundly blessed by teachers, pastors and writers from just about every stream of Christianity. I will never deny the basic tenets of my faith such as: Salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, the deity of Christ, His physical presence and ministry on the earth, His death and His physical resurrection. I worship the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I am not a Cessationist. Although many of my influences happen to come from denominational streams that believe in this teaching, I am, in fact, a Spirit-Filled Christian who not only believes the Holy Spirit is active and moving on the earth today in signs and wonders, I have been honoured to see evidence of His power displayed on the earth, first hand.
