Happy Mother's Day

I hope all you mothers have had a wonderful day! I’m lifting you all up to the Lord with a prayer that I wrote many years ago. May God bless you with His love and peace!
                       A Prayer
Lord, help me to be a formidable force,
One who will act for Thee.
One who fights the way you fought
With compassionate words, gracious and free.
Lord, help me to be a patient person, 
One who will endure with ease.
One who awaits tender times
With helpful, perservering peace.
Lord, help me to be a wise woman, 
One who knows you and reveres. 
One who reads, studies, and prays 
With quiet lips and open ears.
Lord, help me to be a forgiving friend,
One who ceases to blame.
One who tries to forget the wrong
Of trials that can bring shame.
Lord, help me to be a loving lady,
One who brings good cheer. 
One who will share the sunshine
With those that are and aren’t dear.
Lord, help me to better personify You,
With wisdom, patience, and grace.
Loving and forgiving with all Your strength
Until we come face to face!
DDC - January 1987
Now as our special day comes to a close, may we together as mothers focus on the following prayer for our children and families.
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Ephesians 3:14-21(NKJV)
