Praying For Mothers by Jewels From The Word

Mother’s Day cards show up on store shelves April 1st through Mother’s Day, describing the most wonderful mothers of the world, but what about those mothers who don’t live up to the rosy sentiments on greeting cards?

How can we reconcile those? Isn’t a mother’s love the closest there is to God’s love? Isn’t a mother supposed to put her baby’s life before her own, just like a mother bear would give her life for her baby bear?

When a mother addicted to drugs neglects and abuses her children, it offends our sense of right and wrong. That’s not how it’s supposed to be.

Where is God when mothers mistreat or neglect their children? His angels are watching over the children all the time but act when a human being makes a move to prayer.

God has called us Christians to pray. When we see these things taking place, such as in a store somewhere, we are not just to click our tongues and criticize the mother. “How can she act like that to her children? Isn’t that a shame? Someone should do something.”

Yes, someone should. And that someone is you. Stop and pray. You don’t have to make a big deal about it. Simply say under your breath, “Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask that you will send someone to take care of those children. Stop her from harming them. As Psalm 91 says, ‘No evil will befall them, because you have given your angels charge’ over those children. Amen.”
 Pray this: "No evil will befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling, For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways." Psalms 91:10-11 KJV

No one else needs to know you prayed. If the opportunity opens up, you can speak to that mother, “It’s hard to raise little ones. Maybe you might check to see if your church has a Mother’s Day Out Program where you could leave them while you shop.” Then if she says she doesn’t have a church, there is your opening to invite her to your church.

God is looking for ways to intervene in the lives of those who need Him the most. And He will use you if you’ll let Him.
