About Will ford

Will Ford formerly served as Director of the Marketplace Leadership Major at Christ For The Nations Institute, in Dallas, Texas and is a  graduate from Morehouse College.  Many know him internationally, however, for his family heirloom, and it’s connection to slavery and prayer for freedom.

Will is the owner of a kettle pot used by slaves in his family for prayer. Forbidden to pray by their slave master, Will’s ancestors would pray underneath the kettle late at night to muffle their voices. Turns out that they were not praying for their freedom after all, but the freedom of the next generation. Will uses this prayer bowl as a catalyst for gathering groups together for prayer and teaches on intercession, revival and societal transformation. He believes that it was the prayers of a godly remnant of African American, Native American and White Christian abolitionist that birthed revival in America and brought the demise of slavery. Will teaches that since his ancestors were Christians, not only is this part of his heritage but every Christian, because of our unity in Christ. He also believes that were it not for revival’s influence in the marketplace, slavery would never have ended.

Will has traveled the globe speaking in churches and conferences on intercessory prayer, influence in the marketplace and societal transformation. Will has been featured on The 700 Club and also in Charisma and other Christian magazines. His recent  book co authored with Matt Lockett is  “The Dream King:  How The Dream Of Martin Luther King Jr. Is Being Fulfilled To Heal Racism In America.”  He is also co author with Dutch Sheets of “History Makers: Your Prayers Have Power To Heal The Past and Shape The Future,”  Will is also a recent recipient of the “Mantle of Destiny Award” from the King Family Legacy Foundation and is currently pursuing his Master’s in Leadership from Dallas Baptist University.

Will and his wife Dehavilland live in Fort Worth, Texas.
