Would you like to know how to pray for your family? Welcome to Day 3 of our 7 day prayer challenge. Since Heather and I are both moms, our conversation about prayer drifted to a question a lot of women ask: How can I pray for my family? You don’t have to have a husband or children to wonder how to effectively pray for those you love. In our own home, Jeff and I are about to send JoHanna back to college for her sophomore year, and Jacob is about to start his senior year of high school. I’m motivated to be in prayer for them both!
In EVERY season of life, we want to know how to pray for our loved ones. We would love for you to listen in to today’s devotional conversation about how to pray for your family.
How to pray for your family
Jules – When I became a mom, I had no idea how much it would drive my prayer life. At every stage, I’ve found myself crying out to the Lord for patience, wisdom, direction, and intervention over things I can’t control. My mama-prayers have swelled up early in the morning, in the midst of nap time, or deep in the night. Motherhood motivates me to pray!
Since children have a way of filling our hearts, how can we pray for our families?
Heather ~ Motherhood does change us, it challenges us and sometimes we think we are in over our heads. In the trenches of motherhood, God taught me he hears my cries, my groans, and my “Oh no’s!”
Key Verse: Isaiah 30:19 says, “How gracious He will be when you cry for help! As soon as He hears, He will answer you.”
