A mom is a warrior who fights for her children on her knees.
No one holds the power in prayer that you, the mother, have been given.
Heaven moves and hell shakes when an ordinary mother fights for her children's destiny on her knees.
All other activities should cease or diminish in the light of the power that is yours as a solitary woman on your knees.
When you hold your newborn baby in your arms, pray that he or she would accept Jesus into their heart at an early age.
Thank God that nestled inside this little life is the strategy to change the world at this moment in history!
When your children are small, start every day with prayer.
Pray as they are brushing their teeth that they would be obedient and that the Lord would protect.
Pray at every meal and teach them to be grateful not only to God but also for the hands that prepared and provided the food.
Pray with your children if they have an altercation with a sibling, if they are facing a difficult test at school or if they are suffering from rejection or a broken heart.
Pray with your children every night at bedtime whether they are newborn babies or just days away from college.
This is the prayer that I prayed over my children every night that they were under my care and my roof,
"Jesus, thank You for my child. Give them happy dreams and happy sleep. Keep them safe and healthy and strong so that they will grow into a man/woman of God who will serve and love You all the days of their life. And always let them know how much their mom and dad love them. Amen."
If your children are grown, always remember that our adult children can run from our words but never escape the power of our prayers.
Our strategy as our children grow up is to talk less and pray more!
As a mother, your most powerful and victorious position is on your knees!
Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God!
~ Philippians 4:6
