A Mother’s Prayer

Here is a prayer I said every morning and every night for months. It really helped me remember my connection to God while I was struggling to find some peace and recovery:

God, I give thanks to you forever (psalms 31:12)
You cover me with your feathers;
    Shelter me beneath your wings. (Psalms 91:4)
Your promises are my armor and protection (Psalms 91:5).
You are my strength and my song —
     You give me victory! (Isaiah 12:2)

Christ makes His home in my hearts as I trust you
My roots grow deep in your love,
     You keep me strong. (Ephesians 3:17)
Christ lives in me, and you assure me that I share
     in His Glory (Colossians 2:27b).

I pray that you continually grow me
     to use my freedom to serve others
     in love. (Galatians 5:13).
I pray and thank you that I share in your abundance
     as you send one blessing after another (John 1:16)

Thanks to Jesus for revealing God to us (John 1:18).

God, I lift up my children to you.
Love them.
Protect them every day,
And draw them closer and closer to you.

I pray for the resources to provide a home for my family.
And above all, that your will be done.

Send your Holy Spirit to all who long to know you
     and to all who suffer.
Renew our spirits, God.

Amen.
