Prayer is something that all Christian mothers know is important, but we do not always live like it is important. I think that if we were better at it, we would do it more!
But I am afraid many of us feel like we are not really good at praying.
When our prayers are answered, it is an awesome thing to experience! But when the prayer seems to go unanswered, or God does something different than we would have hoped, we begin to get discouraged and sometimes even give up praying.
Many Christian writers have written classics on prayer, such as With Christ in the School of Prayer, by Andrew Murray, and more recently The Power of a Praying Woman, by Stormie Omartian. These are wonderful resources that teach about how prayer is a discipline in our lives, and we all know that discipline does not come easily!
Developing a discipline only comes as a result of practice.
I recommend another book as the BEST resource to learn about prayer – the Bible! Reading the Bible, all of it, helps us to learn who God is, how God works, and how God answers prayer.
The more you read the Word of God, the more you will trust God in your prayer life!
How to Pray for Your Children and Grandchildren
I have also learned much about prayer from faithful women, both mothers and grandmothers, as well as those who do not have children of their own. In fact, some who do not have biological children have a tremendous knowledge of God that has grown in their hearts through the years.
With Moms in the School of Prayer is the first part of our How to Pray for Your Children and Grandchildren series. If you were not part of the Harvesting Home family last year when these morsels of great advice were given from several of our friends, take the next few weeks and read through their encouraging words of wisdom.
Beginning May 1st, we will start an intentional focus of praying for our children. You can download the printable and join us in this challenge.
This is a wonderful FREE resource to help you practice praying for your children and grandchildren:
