Moms In Prayer
May 13, 2020

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day!  All I really wanted was a day to do nothing – (AND ALL THE MOMS SAID… AMEN!!) – as that is sometimes a difficult request to fill. However, my beautiful family did shower me with great love and appreciation, and I am so thankful for that!

Everyone knows that being a parent – especially a mother – is a challenging and daunting task.  One of the most powerful tools we have is prayer. Through prayer, we receive guidance, strength, and empowerment.  It is also the place where we bring our overwhelming problems to a BIG God. Then, we can watch God do what we could not do, in and for our children.  The following scriptures state:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” 

~ Philippians 4:6-7

“Oh, Lord GOD! You have made the heavens and earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for You!”

~ Jeremiah 32:17

Private prayer is important, but praying in agreement and unity with another person is also another immensely powerful way to pray.  Moms in Prayer International is an example of a ministry for praying and connecting with other parents to intercede for children and schools. They are in Poway, California, and have established prayer groups in over 140 countries.  Founder Fern Nichols said, “Moms in Prayer exist because one mom felt a burden to pray for her children with another mom… and has grown into a global movement of prayer.”

I am a part of a Moms in Prayer group in Cleveland County N.C., and our team has had many quick answered prayers and victories for our children, schools, and families. It truly is remarkable!  Both my husband and daughter tell me often, “please have moms in prayer pray for us,” because they see the incredible results.  Jesus encourages us to pray together.  In Mathew 18:19-20, he states:

“Again, truly I tell you, if two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them.”

“Lord, thank you for the gift of motherhood. I pray for myself and all the amazing mothers that you created. As we love our children unconditionally and serve tirelessly, I ask that you refresh us and bless us.  Father, encourage, strengthen, and equip us for everything we need to do. Help us to find other believers who we can agree with in prayer. I pray we will experience an abundance of faith victories and miracles!  In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”
