A Prayer For Moms - A Prayer While Waiting - Psalm 27:14 - Wednesday, May 4, 2016

To honor moms during the Month of May, I'm posting a prayer especially for moms! The plan will be to pray through a different Psalm each week. I pray it ministers to you in a special way! Thank you for all you do! This week here's a prayer for you through Psalm 27:14.




Psalm 27:14

Heavenly Father, I ask that you instill your truth in my heart as a mom and as Your Daughter as I read Your truth and pray through it. I thank You and praise You for Who you are,  for loving me unconditionally and for being my strength through the good and the bad days. I need You Father! 

Wait for the Lord; 

You call me wait on You and trust in You. Please help me to do this through your strength. Help me to wait on You and Lean Upon You when:
...when I'm stressed out
...when my vision is unclear
...when my kids misbehave
...when there are dishes to be done and homework to check
...when there are bills to pay
...when I haven't grown how I want to grow or have too high of expectations on myself
...when I'm up at 3 am with a sick child, again... and I'm very tired
...I face many more circumstances (insert here)

In all circumstances help me to wait on You and trust in You. 
Help me to always look for and expect Your greater reward as You are my / our provider!

be strong, and let your heart take courage; 

I confess that there are times when I fear for my child's/children's future.
I confess that there are times when there seems like too much month at the end of the money and I'm not sure what to do.
I confess that I'm angry toward my kids and sometimes it's because I'm totally spent.
I confess that sometimes I feel like I don't have purpose, that I'm unworthy, that I'm not valuable and much more. Help me to read Your Word especially during these times as Your truth dispels the fear and the truth...Your truth causes the lies I believe about myself to disappear.
I know You understand all these things and nothing is a surprise to You...

So I ask that You would be my strength. 
I ask that You would help me to be strong.
I ask that You would help me to have courage especially to do what is right.
I ask that You help me to give my child's/children's future over to You as you know it already.
I ask that You continue to guide me through sound financial planning and that You'd continue to provide for my family. 
I ask that You help me daily to be good example (Not perfect) for my child/children. 
I ask that You help me be patient with myself and my child/children.
I ask that You would help me understand who I am in Christ.
I ask that You help me learn more and more about the great purpose You have for my life and that I'd walk in it including the gift of being a mom.
I ask that You help me understand and remember that I am worthy because of Christ.
I ask that You help me understand that I am of great worth as Your daughter.
I ask that You help me remember that I don't have to have it all together because You are my strength and sufficiency. 
Help me to carve out daily time with You where I can seek You and hear from You through Your Word and Prayer. 

wait for the Lord!

In all things, again, please help me to wait on You as I cannot do this alone.
I thank You and praise You and I ask all these things in Jesus Name, Amen.

In Christ Alone,
