Praying For Special Needs Children
Pray with other moms who understand the unique challenges that come with raising a special needs child.
Dear praying mom,
The past several months might have felt like a desert or valley of darkness for you and your family members. I’ve found it very reassuring to look at what God’s Word says in Psalm 23:4 (AMPC):
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
In this season, I’ve had to rely on the LORD more since my routines have been upended, and I do not know if or when things will ever get “back to normal.” However, I’ve realized that often I’ve been too focused on exiting this valley with the Good Shepherd’s assistance when I could be finding pleasure and joy in taking this journey with Him! He has been using some particular Moms in Prayer friends to heighten my awareness of this during Thanksgiving time in our prayer meetings, sharing sweet God sightings from their own journeys.
You might find it helpful, as I do, to gather with other moms for prayer to re-focus attention on our Good Shepherd and His Word, to give thanks for His guidance and protection, and to pray for one another’s children and their schools.
Love and blessings,
Special Needs Praying Moms Liaison
See Prayer Calls Below
Our Moms in Prayer Special Needs team conducts prayer meetings via conference calls specifically for moms who have a child with ongoing special needs.
Here is information about our July calls:
|Day||Start Time||Facilitator||Facilitator email|
|9:45 AM Central||Martha Littlefirstname.lastname@example.org|
9:00 AM Pacific Time = 10:00 AM Mountain Time = 11:00 AM Central Time = Noon Eastern Time
The calls are listed according to the time zone which each facilitator considers “home.” However, you are welcome to participate in any of the above calls, regardless of which time zone you live in. If you notify the facilitator of the call you intend to join, she would be glad to send you a prayer sheet.
I am praying that this month, you will reap joy and pleasure from traveling with our Good Shepherd. I am also asking the LORD to provide you with other moms to pray with. Please let me know if you’d like assistance in finding or starting a Moms in Prayer group!
