THE GODLY MOTHER

Mother's prayer

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

MOTHER: Multi-Occupational, Talented HER.

HER role is pivotal in the life of her children. HER influence emanates through the life of her child from birth to death—and throughout eternity. When a God-fearing mother is that influential presence, Proverbs 22:6 can be fulfilled. Father and mother are both the responsible trainers in their children’s lives, but the mother has the initial bond internally in child-bearing and continues to be the child-bearer in many ways throughout the life of her daughter or son.

“Being a mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your  children do.”     (Author Unknown)

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”  (Washington Irving)

A praying mother is a powerful presence, moving through time with her sons and daughters.
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”  (Abraham Lincoln)
A praying mother has no boundaries of space, traveling ahead of her children with protective prayer.
“If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.” (Robert Brault)

God gave mothers a special place in His plan. A human mother bore the Savior of us all. Mothers bear the children who have the potential to become the followers of Jesus and carry on His work here in His church and throughout the world—if properly trained, if earnestly prayed for, if devoutly reared by a Godly mother.

May we be mothers who carry forth the plan God designed for us. God, help us faithfully nurture and raise children who will know the Way to go and never depart from it. Amen.
