My secret weapon as a mom

It’s not my ability to multitask, not my natural scent that can mask how many days it’s actually been since I’ve showered, not the way I can grocery shop with my eyes closed, not my cooking skills- unless you consider mastery of the crock pot as genuine skills, nor is it my ability to carry both children along a diaper bag, toddler backpack, and my purse successfully to the car. Nope.

My single most effective and powerful weapon is PRAYER.

My mom was and still remains my greatest example of what it means to pray for your children. And not just pray, like a little here and little there. But faithfully, consistently, passionately pray believing and trusting God with everything that life can throw our way.

So with that, I wanted to share the scripture have been praying for my daughter for the past 3 years. Psalm 1:3 ( I always insert her name as I pray this scripture over her life)

Lord may Charlie be like a tree planted by streams of water, bearing fruit in every season, not withering but prospering in every way.

I fight for my daughter’s health and future through prayer. I ask that God would cause her to be strong like a tree and plant herself in a thriving relationship with Jesus, the giver of life and all things good. I ask that God would help her to bear fruit; I pray the fruits of the spirit- that she would have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control (Galtions 5:22-23). And that she would never wither- mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, spiritually- but that she would always prosper in every way!

So, won’t you fight with me this week? Let’s pray!
