Catastrophe is just around the corner for them, a total smashup, their lives ruined beyond repair.
God has gifted me with one of the best, Godliest mother's out there. I esteem her today and give her my thanks for all of her prayers and sacrifices throughout the years, so that I could learn from her and grow in the love and grace that God had in mind for me. Thank you Mom and I love you so much!! You have given me the confidence to walk toward any goal that I feel God is calling me to....even to this day you encourage and bless me! It is my hope that I can give back to you just a little of what you have given to me in the years to come.
Thank you for the gift of motherhood. Thank you for those mothers that have had their season of work and are now in their "golden years". Reward them for their labor of love and for all of the sacrifices they have given along the way.....those that we recognize and those that we aren't even aware of. Thank you for those mothers who are in the middle of their parenting season as well. May you grant us the knowledge and patience to consistently provide Your wisdom and love to the children that you have given us the privilege to call "ours" for the time that You will allow us to have them in our care. Give us courage to follow Your voice in all matters relating to mothering these precious charges.
And Father.....one more thing.....for those women tonight who are wanting to become mothers, please bless them with children. Speak into their hearts tonight and supply them with confidence to know that You have heard their request and will give them the desires of their hearts. Restore their heavy hearts with a spirit of joy....and bless them with a child as you did Hannah in 1 Samuel 1-2. Help them to persevere in their request to You, as she did....1 Samuel 1:12~As she kept on praying to the Lord......16~I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.
And after Hannah received from the Lord....here is part of her prayer....
