I speak to God like a best friend using the language I would normally use as I speak to an earthly friend that I trust. God wants me to be “me” including speaking to Him in a most natural and comfortable way. God doesn’t care about flowery language. He only cares about what is in my heart so I strive to say my daily prayer for my children speaking what is in my heart.
Motherhood is my most important work
I have always felt like being a mother is a most important work that is why a daily prayer for my children is a high priority.
Daily Prayer for my Children
Dear Father, I come to you in humility. I ask you to forgive me of my sins. Thank you.
You know what is in my heart and each of my children’s hearts because that is what you look upon.
Please heal my heart and each of my children’s hearts. I pray our hearts will beat in righteousness with the desire to do your will.
Your son Jesus perfectly submitted to your will. I pray I will submit to Jesus’ will. I pray my children will follow Jesus and do His will too.
Each child is unique. Thank you for their uniqueness. They are each special to me. I love them. You love them more.
I have always felt like being a good mother is one of the most important roles in my life. I desire to be a good mother. I hope to become more like Mother in Heaven.
Bless each of their bodies to be filled with your light and love so they will be healthy and happy.
I pray each of my children will be protected by the angels assigned to them. Shield them with a perfect shield of protection.
Thank you for listening to this mother’s prayer. I know you hear and answer my prayers. Thank you for your patience while I learn. Please continue to teach me so I can be a better mother, wife, and friend. I love you. Thank you for your light.
In Jesus Christ’s name Amen.
I also often offer this prayer for light and love to be bestowed upon each member of my family.
Mother helper on earth
I understand my children really don’t belong to me. That is why it is so important to pray for God’s guidance to do my part in being God’s “mother” helper on earth. I desire to persevere each day striving to become the best mother I can be. By my small means, God can bring about great things.
Matthew 18:2-5 Bible Scripture
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. Matthew 18:2-5
