Proverbs 31:28-29 says, “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.’”
Daily Prayer for Today 1st June 2022 MESSAGE
That first moment of seeing those two lines on a pregnancy test and a woman’s life is changed. The journey of pregnancy and carrying a child (or children) in the womb leads to the first meeting at birth. The difficulties faced during pregnancy change to new challenges of raising and taking care of a child in this sin-filled world. Motherhood is a blessing, it is a calling, and it is a sanctifying process. Just like Jesus loved and honored his earthly mother Mary, we are to honor our mothers and show gratitude for the love and sacrifice they have made.
Today’s verse reminds us, that God values mothers. He blesses them. He honors them. We acknowledge that many women struggle to have physical children or never marry. However, we are all called to invest as mothers into the next generation. Whether a biological mother or a spiritual mother, all women who are pouring out their lives for the sake of the gospel to children are mothering and we are grateful for their service of love.
Daily Prayer for Today 1 June 2022 | PRAYER POINT BELOW
I praise You for the reminder that you value mothers. Thank you that children rise up and call their mothers blessed. Even when moms do mundane and often unseen tasks, help them to remember that they are always recognized and noticed by You. Thank you that even if not in the moments of discipline or the “Nos” that eventually children grow and realize the protection, care, and support from healthy parents.
Thank you for those who recognize us as mother figures in their lives. For those whom we are able to mentor and train up in the ways of God. For the spiritual children You have entrusted to us. Thank you for purpose in raising up the next generation of believers. Thank you for valuing and honoring women who are unable to physically carry babies, but step up in other ways like ministries, adoption, fostering, and mentoring. You are the God over every story and You give us purpose in life.
Thank you for husbands who work alongside mothers to parent and model healthy relationships to kids. For the men who love and honor mothers so beautifully. Who speak highly of their wives and model Your love in the home. Thank you for supporting and being a Husband to the single mother who works so hard to raise her kids and love them well. You value her and walk the journey with her. You care for her every need.
Lord, we pray over mothers to realize their great worth today. That in moments of chaos, their souls find rest in You. That in the tiredness of parenting, they can be refreshed by Your presence. That in the moments of tears and pain, they can remember that You catch their tears in a bottle. Help them to see that they are valued and have a beautiful calling in this life. Enable their lives to overflow with gratitude and joy. Give them wisdom in boundaries and clarity in decision-making. Help mothers not to stay isolated, but press in to community. Give them Your grace for themselves and their children.
“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you.” (Isaiah 66:13) Lord, thank you for a mother’s comfort. Thank you that You are our Comforter and You will always be there for us. Even mothers themselves need to be held and safe. Please meet moms and show Yourself as their Comforter today.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 says, ”And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” God, help mothers everywhere to take this command seriously. Help us to diligently teach your gospel and Your Bible to our children. Help us to regularly incorporate Your Word into our everyday lives so that our young ones can learn about the purpose of life and Your salvation.
Thank you for entrusting mothers with the mission of teaching their children about Jesus’ salvation plan and witnessing to the next generation. Amen.
