Prophetess Rose Mary Blackwell is Founder-Director of Rose Blackwell Ministries-Standing in the Gap, which focuses on Intercessory Prayer.
Rose was called by God while she was in business as owner of a Harold's Fried Chicken Franchise. She heard a voice call her by name and told her what He wanted her to do. Rose closed the business and went into full time Prayer Ministry, praying for things as the Holy Spirit directed. It was the HOLY SPIRIT that told her to go to TV 38, where she served for several years on the staff and where she was first established as a formidable "Prayer Warrior".
Prophetess Blackwell and her sister, Evangelist Margaret Harrison were greatly influenced by their mother, Evangelist Lillie B. Harrison.
Rose's life was also greatly touched by the anointing of the late Bishop H. W. Goldsberry, Founder and Pastor of Faith Temple Church of God in Christ and leader of the Sixth Jurisdiction, Churches of God in Christ.
Rose received a miracle healing when Bishop Goldsberry prayed for her. Doctors had told her that she would not live without a blood transfusion. When Bishop Goldsberry prayed for her, God gave her a miracle of healing and blood transfusion and healed her completely.
Rose stayed in Bishop Goldsberry's home and Bishop and Mrs. Goldsberry became her spiritual parents. She remained in the Goldsberry home for many weeks and often prayed with them. Her faith began to grow until it was her desire to be just like Bishop Goldsberry, a woman of prayer. It was this faith that led to the founding of ROSE BLACKWELL MINISTRIES, "Standing In The Gap"over 24 years ago. The Intercessory Prayer Ministry now reaches out to feed the hungry and clothe the naked and to teach young people and adults Godly Principles and self-esteem. She prays for young people, visits hospitals and helps senior citizens and the less fortunate. Isaiah 61:1-3
Prophetess Blackwell is a graduate of the Morris Cerullo School of Ministry, based in San Diego, California. Ordained as an Elder, she is a member of the Board of Elders with Morris Cerullo World Evangelism. She is a graduate of Kennedy King College in Chicago. Hundreds of lives have been touched and changed through her effervescent personality and zeal for the Lord Jesus Christ.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy Nation, A Peculiar People; That ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light"
Jeremiah 1:12 says, "I will hasten my word to perform it,"
Isaiah 55:11, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it,"
In conclusion, Rose learned from Bishop Goldsberry that faith only moves in one direction. It is never shaken by delays or circumstances.
Take God's word and confess the word over the situation, because God's word is the final authority. God said it; I Believe It; and that Settles It! Amen!
