“Our time on earth is so short, but our prayers are eternal.” What an impact we can make through prayer and through encouraging moms to pray! Today we complete our Moms in the Bible series, looking at the life of Elizabeth. Listen in as Stacy talks with Sally Burke, President of Moms in Prayer International, about the gift of godly mentorship. We all need women like Elizabeth in our lives, but where do we find them? You won’t want to miss a moment as Sally answers this question.
Scripture on Elizabeth found in Luke 1
At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” Luke 1:39-45 (NIV)
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17 (NLT)
