Abraham Lincoln said, “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

If you have children, I know you’ve spent your fair share of time down on your knees praying. Right after I had my son Paul, an elderly woman at church came up to me and said, “That baby is going to keep you on your knees.” At the time, I couldn’t begin to imagine what she meant.

Pauly has been easy to raise. I didn’t have trouble Drawing lessonwith his behavior. He was a good student and has a heart for the Lord. But, mothers worry. I worry. I’m the queen of worrying mothers.

I pray safety, protection, wisdom, and guidance for his life. I’ve been praying for his future spouse almost every day since he was born. Most of all, I pray He would always serve Jesus, no matter what, at any cost.

The Bible says, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.” Psalm 127:3

There are a lot of children who live in this world without praying parents. They are children who are not treated as if they are a reward. They need Jesus. They need love. Whenever I am out shopping or at a restaurant, I have a habit of praying for someone I don’t know. I will often pray for a child I see. They may not have anyone else praying for them.

I want to encourage you to pray, pray, and pray some more. Pray for a child you don’t know who needs you to pray. And make your children aware that you pray for them. Abraham Lincoln never forgot the prayers of his mother.

Never underestimate the power of a mother who prays.
