Why A Prayer For Moms?
As a mom, I find myself struggling to be the right kind of role model for my children.
This is especially true on Sunday mornings as we’re preparing to leave the house for worship.
I’ve discovered in our family, that Sunday mornings are the most stressful for us.
With six people needing to eat and get ready (and one of them coming home from work not long before we need to be pulling out of the driveway), our home is not a haven of peace and tranquility.
To be honest, as we pull out of the drive, I more often than not, have my crabby pants on and spend the fifteen minute drive praying for compassion, grace, and understanding.
I would rather be singing praise music, or chatting with my family, than needing to apologize to each child for my anxiousness and irritability.
To that end, I’ve decided I need a focused plan for keeping more connected to God before joining in fellowship with others at church.
What better way than a prayer from Scripture to return my focus to the One who is in control. Who knows me deeply.
With that in mind, I thought that if I have this struggle, certainly someone else struggles with it too. So, I’m sharing the scripture and the prayer for moms who feel frazzled and out of control.
I pray this will help you this Sunday morning.
You’re not alone, Momma’s.
Something to Pray
Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life.Psalm 143:8 NIV
This morning while I balance breakfast dishes with dressing babies, let me be reminded of Your unfailing love.
Fill me with wisdom and peace; showing me the way I should go.
My life is Yours, LORD, and I trust in You.
In Your glorious name,
