A Mother's Prayer


If you're not familiar with Pour Your Heart Out go HERE.



This is my heart today, and I'm pouring it our to the Lord.


A Mother’s prayer


Father God I ask you this morning to come into my home and make your presence known. Lead me in my tasks today. Guide me as a wife, mother, friend, daughter, and sister. Most importantly, Lord, lead me as a woman after your own heart. Lord, let everything I do today be a result of your guidance.

Father, I feel far from you, and far from your plan.

I ask forgiveness for my distance. Lord, forgive me for letting the things of this world interrupt my relationship with you. For I know that I must seek you first in order to have a peace about anything in my life (Matthew 6:33), and I have been putting you on the back burner. Forgive me for not making my time in your word and prayer a priority. Forgive me for seeking people over you. Lord, I ask you this morning to change me. I ask you to create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me (Psalm 51:10). Father, I know that you will answer my prayer this morning. You tell me in your word that if I ask it will be given to me, seek and I will find, knock and the door will be open (Matthew 7:7).

Father, answer my prayer for a renewed spirit.

Father, I pray that I would be the mom you have called me to be, and teach my boys to love you with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their strength(Deut 6:5). Lead me in teaching them about your son, who has given us life. Lord, help me reconnect with your son through prayer and study. Help me know him better. Give me the discipline to spend time in study, prayer, and worship. Help me build my relationship with Jesus, the one and only. Because of Him, I am me, and thank you for your gift of ever abounding grace.

Father, I ask you to equip me to be a refuge for my family. Help me to be a safe haven for my husband, and build my house according to your will (Proverbs 14:1). Help me to tap into the power of the spirit you have given me and not waste it. Lord, you have given me a spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control (Galatians 5:22-23). Thank you, Lord, and help me use these gifts of grace to your glory. For I know it is to your glory that we bear much fruit (John 15:8).
I know that is your will for me, and ask you to help me become your plan.

Lord, this morning I pray that I would be a mother who glorifies you and shines a light in the world for your son, Jesus Christ. I pray that I would begin in my home through the way I act, speak, and make decisions. May everything about me be emptied and exchanged for everything about you. Let the words I speak be your words and the tasks I complete be your tasks.

Father, help me to meet with you daily and begin my day right with me you. I know the peace I have after committing my day to you cannot be compared to anything. Once I meet with you, my day has purpose and direction. When I put off meeting with you my parenting is off, my attitude is weak, my endurance is low, and my patience is thin. Help me to be the wife and mother who has her priorities in check!

Lord, I pray that you would bless my husband and his work. Bless his health, body, and mind. Help him to reach out to you. Give him peace when he begins to feel stressed.

Lord, bless my children today. I thank you for them. I thank you for the gift of motherhood. Please give them healthy bodies, and healthy minds. Help them make Godly choices, and give them a desire to know you and seek you.

Lord, I cast all my anxieties on you for you tell to me to in your word (1 Peter 5:7). I will pray about everything and worry about nothing (Philippians 4:6-7), and commit my day to you. For I know it will be a success in doing so (Proverbs 16:3)

Thank you, Lord for your grace and love!

I pray all of this in your sons’ name, Jesus Christ.

This is a beautiful picture of your open heart. Minus the motherhood part, I could totally echo it. Also, thanks for stopping by and commenting...I really wish my Publix took RR's but I haven't found any in my area that accept WAGS as a competitor. :(

We must be kindred spirits! You would probably be interested in Family Camp. Check out "Places" on my blog if you haven't already. (They have them in 10 different state, I think there is one in yours.)
