When a man accomplishes great things, there is usually a good woman standing by his side. Standing by the
side of Bishop Powell is our beloved First Lady, Beverly A. Powell. First Lady Powell is Bishop Powell's
"Diamond," Stenneth, Jr. and Joshua's mother, an anointed singer and a powerful intercessor. She hails
from Jersey City, New Jersey and was saved at the age of 15 and filled with the Holy Spirit at the age of 17
under the leadership of Pastor John Knight of the Heavenly Temple COGIC.
First Lady Powell offers a word to all First Ladies -- "You must love people! You will not be an effective First
Lady if you do not love people because you are in the people business. You won't always understand them
or agree with everything they do but you must always love them. Above everything else, be an intercessor.
That is my sustaining force -- standing in the gap for my husband and the ministry that God has birthed in
him. Future First Ladies must have a relationship with God for themselves and not depend on their husband's relationship with God to get them to where they need to be. I want to be an asset to my husband and I encourage other wives and First Ladies to be the same to their husbands. Stand by his side, although there will be things you will not understand. You should not laugh at your husband's vision, no matter how unachievable it may seem. Love your husband through the difficult times, even when you do not feel like it. All you need is God leading and guiding him, and your own prayer life with God."
