A Mama's Prayer

I tried to think of a little something to give you on this special day. Now, that would take a big, big budget. Which I don't have. But I did come up with this idea. It's a mama's prayer that I often offer for my family.

I'd like to share it with you:

Abba, thank You for the ones that You have given to me. Thank you for choosing me me to be their mama. There's no higher calling. They are the greatest blessing that I could ever receive.

Protect them by the power of Your name--the name of Your Son, Jesus.

Protect them from the evil one.

Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.

May our family live as one just as You and the Son are One so that the world may know that You sent Jesus.

And so that the world may know that You love them even as You love the Son.

I pray in the name of Jesus. His precious name.

I based this prayer on Christ's prayer as recorded in John 17. These words calm me. They give me peace when I'm anxious and apprehensive about my family.

May they do the same for you.

Happy Mother's Day, sweet girl!

  11. I love this prayer! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!!! Your kiddos are very blessed to have such a wonderful mama!!!

  12. Hi, Deb! I'm here a little late, but your words are timely. Your prayer is so beautiful and so rightly spoken for me.

    I hope you are well. Take care of yourself!

    Much love,


  13. Such a lovely prayer, dear Deb.

    I am praying it for my own family, too.

    Thank you for sharing.


  14. Is it wrong to steal a prayer? Because I think I'm printing that one out and praying it over my family. Beautiful, Deb! ;0)

    I miss you terribly. I'm going to call you tonight or tomorrow. Hopefully, we can squeeze in a conversation amidst all the busyness. Love ya!

  15. Thank you so much for sharing this prayer. It is beautiful.


  16. thank you Deb...for this....It is beautiful...

  17. Hi Deb,
    I know I am totally late, but I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day yourself. I have been away from blogging for a bit to spend more time with my family. I figured everyone would still be around when I got back, and they were!

    Hoping you have your hubby close this weekend, thinking of you,

  18. I'm late in catching up on reading blogs but I did make it to yours and very much enjoyed this mother's day wish. I hope your day was blessed and that this week has been a good one for you!

  19. Thank you for the prayer to cover my special ones this ordinary day. It is so easy to forget to pray for them on ordinary days...but the discipline to do so is priceless....I've been focusing on the "Sanctify them with your Truth!" As a family we are studying what a Biblical worldview is based on the truth of God's Word. I want them to fully understand and let such things transform their lives...sanctify them to be more Christlike! Thanks for the prayer. A perfect mother's day post!

  20. Deb,

    Please help me spread the word of a sister in Christ who so desperately needs help with a limited amount of time left.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
