A prayer for moms

Dear Lord, I pray your blessing over mothers today. Mothers like me, who need your hand on us. I pray healing over the mothers who grieve, patience over those who are frustrated and discouraged , rest over those who are weary, joy over those who are sad, peace over those who worry, courage over those who fight, wisdom over those burdened with decisions, direction over those who feel lost, discernment over those who feel confused, protection over those who are endangered, endurance over those who suffer. Give Christian mothers victory over the devil's schemes and grace to grow, in Jesus' name. Keep us from striving for perfection . Stop us from damaging emotional spirals. Strengthen us in our spiritual walk. Bring us laughter. Help us catch every moment. Make us prayer warriors. Hold us up when our children disappoint or when they hurt us deeply. You understand. Gather us under your wings. We need you, and we worship you, Jesus. We--the mothers of the world--are so blessed by
