THIS WEEK’S PRAYER FOCUS: We give thanks for our mothers—for their sacrificial love, for their devotion to God and family, for their untiring work (day and night), and for their ex-ample of selfless service. We pray on their behalf for their health, spiritual blessing, guidance from God’s Word and the Holy Spirit, and for wisdom and understanding. We also pray for “spiritual mothers” who may or may not be a parent, but whose love and spiritual guidance to many has blessed those in their sphere of influence. We pray that all mothers recognize the power of their influence, and use it for God’s glory.
I am reminded of your sin-cere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. II Timothy 1: 5.
