5 Prayers Every Mother Should Pray

mom prayers

Having children makes a mother feel so vulnerable. Of course you love your child, and while we can’t control everything, we can surely pray for everything. Here are my best prayers for moms.

I recently read something from Leslie Ludy that really impacted me. She said that during busy times of motherhood we shouldn’t let our prayer life hit the back burner. She said it’s the times we barely have time to pray that we actually need prayer the most.

In fact, it’s during these times we can’t afford to not pray!

Lately I’ve been thinking about what my kids will face as they grow up and I’m determined, among the “urgency” of daily life, to pray for specific things in their future. Not just who they’ll marry or what they’ll be when they grow up (although these are great prayers) but for other less obvious things.

Here are the things I think all moms should pray for their children. 

1. Timely wisdom

The first consistent prayer I prayed with my firstborn – that God routinely answered – was for timely wisdom. I asked that God would lead me to the right person, bit of advice, tip or hunch that would help me manage life with a child. Without fail I’d hear someone offer how they did things, read a certain passage in a book, or have a light bulb moment and BHAM… opportunity to put it into practice.

I now pray God will give me timely wisdom so that I can do my best to do what’s best for each child as they grow and change. It doesn’t mean there aren’t hurdles (trouble will come… John 16:33), but that I can see God actively moving in our day to day life.
