Warrior Prayers: Day 12 (Peace)

Today we pray for Peace (page 29).

Peace!  What is that?  I don't know anymore.  Ever since I had children, peace is not a word I use or have very often, but it's something that God desires for us to better moms.  And we need to pray for our sons to have peace.

From Laura Lee Groves:
Motherhood has many demands, but I can’t do everything. In fact, I don’t need to. There’s One who knows better than I do and He’s waiting to catch me and my son when we stumble. He gives me grace to do all I can each day … then His grace provides for all I didn’t get to, as well.

It’s hard to believe anyone loves my son more than I do. But He does.

Knowing that, I can “Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” (Psalm 105:3,4)

And I can help myself to peace--from above.

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee; because he trusteth in Thee."
~Isaiah 26:3 (ASV)

Laura Lee Groves wrote an outstanding book for mothers of boy which I have read and reviewed:
I'm Outnumbered!: One Mom's Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys
by Laura Lee Groves

Question for Discussion:
*What are some ways you promote peace in your home?

Tomorrow (9/18) we pray for Patience (page 30).

Sometimes when my son is acting really crazy, I try to sing a soothing song that is peaceful.
