31 Days of Prayer for our Girls

"Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?" Corrie Ten Boom

Life as a mother can be overwhelming. Each day our girls face heartbreak and joy. There is drama and there is peace. There is success and there is failure. Many times there are big questions about navigating the waters of life situations and/or how circumstances fit into the big picture of faith.

And all of this happens quickly. In fact, if your home is anything like mine, it seems to snowball each day and then get thrown at you all at once.

How do you respond?

If you are anything like me your mind can spin in the intensity of the moment looking for a response that honors Him, encourages her, and promotes peace. And, if nothing comes then you offer up a quick prayer hoping for an immediate response.

But this is admittedly NOT the best approach. I need to start each day bathing my children in prayer so that I experience the comfort in knowing I'm being directed by God's Word and responding to every situation in His strength rather than my own. It makes for less stressful parenting.

Like anything in life, our responses are born out of habit and I'm thrilled to tell you that MODSquad is here to your rescue, helping you to place your daughter in God's hands first everyday with their new October series - 31 Days of Prayer for our Girls

MODSquad is an awesome community of moms walking along side one another to raise girls with intergrity and hearts for the Lord. It's been my honor to be a monthly writer for this group of moms who are so honest about everything from the issues of motherhood that make us want to pull our hair out to moments that make us smile so hard our face hurts. It is such an uplifting, encouraging space to be real and grow.

I hope you'll join MODSquad for this incredible month of posts. Each day will have a topic, bible verse, and a prayer. You can subscribe, have the posts emailed to you, or follow on Facebook. All the important details are here.

As today's post reminds, "The effective prayer of a righteous {mom} can accomplish much." James 5:16
