The Power of Prayer...

I'm ashamed to say I've never read The Power of a Praying Wife till now, written by Stormie Omartian. There is a section in there about the prayer of a mother for her children. What she's seen happen if the mother prayers and what she has seen happens if she doesn't. I LOVE this quote and have now made it my goal to pray this among other things daily for my family. May this also be a charge for you if you don't do so already. If you already do, keep up the good work. I firmly believe prayers are what has and will sustain me and what will sustain our children and our husbands.

"I've observed that people who have had actively praying parents seem to find their life's work early. Their careers may not take off immediately, but they have a sense of purpose and destiny that propels them in the right direction. They don't live with the frustration and aimlessness that the others do. While many parents have an agenda for their children, not enough seek out God's plan for their lives. When a child's life is left to chance that way, a kind of vocational wandering can result."

I have a God who can move mountains. I will put my trust in Him alone.
