The Power of Prayer for Mothers

Praying is the best way that we can connect to God. We talk to Him, let Him carry our burdens, as well as tell him our wants, and our needs.

Praying for our mothers is just another way we can connect to God, and it can also help us feel more connected to our mother.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
