TODAY WE PRAY FOR ATTENDEES AS THEY MOTHER

This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him (I John 5:14-15). My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him (Psalm 62:5). Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving (Colossians 4:2).

May Dayle, Kathryn, and Wendy derive much joy and encouragement from the interaction with other women who “get their life.”

Moms will be moms no matter what country, adopted kids or biological. Their heart’s cry is that their children have an intimate, personal walk with the Lord. Often the journey there is fraught with mistakes, pain, consequences and anxiety, made harder to bear by the distance. Second guessing hard decisions made when kids were young (due to ministry location, educational options, or even just answering the call to be a missionary) is not uncommon. Lord, teach each woman how to intercede for their children. Help them to not blame themselves for things that go wrong in their lives. Redeem mistakes made, and release them from guilt. Give them strength to forgive their kids for anything they have done to hurt or disappoint them. Empower them to forgive anyone who has hurt their kids in any way. Enable them to forgive themselves for any time they feel that they have not been the perfect parent. Grant them faith to believe and patience to wait for the answers. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
