DAY 19: MOTHERS
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Moms, you probably know this, but you’re kind of a big deal to your family. You are likely the glue that holds the family together. It can come in a lot of roles like that of chauffer, nurse, master chef, family secretary, family treasurer, and housekeeper. Consider what may be the most important role a mom could play to your family… prayer warrior. Countless testimonies of people are marked by the effects of a praying mom.
If you are a mom, pray this scripture over yourself and your child today.
If you are a dad, pray this scripture over your child and his/her mother today.
If there is no mother present, pray this scripture in hopes a mother figure will rise up for your child.
Lord, clothe me/my wife with strength and dignity; allow me/her to laugh at the days to come. May I/she speak with wisdom, and may faithful instruction be on my/her tongue. As I/she watch over the affairs of the household, may I/she not eat the bread of idleness. May
(your kid) and my husband/I be able to rise and call me/my wife blessed.
What especially hits home for you in this prayer and why? _____________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
