“I’m exhausted! I’ve tried everything. I don’t know what else to do, but pray.”
Sound familiar? You are not alone. We love our children, but let’s face it, “training them up” is hard. God is so eager to help you. God will meet you right where you are. When you are at your wits end, you will find He is Able. When you are lost, your Shepherd will guide you. When you are weak, He will be your Strength. God knows our children even better than we do and trust me; God called you to Moms in Prayer.
Experience another mom praying for your child and the joy of seeing God at work in your child’s school.

My Moms in Prayer Story
As a new mom with a toddler, the Lord called me to pray for children, so some ladies from our church started a prayer group. We struggled to maintain it, talking more than praying, letting our feelings lead us. Then by God’s providence, I was given a Moms in Prayer Booklet. I knew this was what God had called me to do.
I began wanting God to fix everything, but instead, God gave me Himself. He would often speak through other moms. One of my favorite times happened recently when my oldest son at 22 confessed serious doubts in his faith. It threw me into a tailspin. Satan’s fiery arrows came hard and fast. We met the next day to pray and before I could even share my concern, I looked at the prayer sheet. The Moms in Prayer group leader had chosen the attribute, God is our Finisher. That was exactly what I needed to hear. I could trust that, “He who began a good work in my son’s life would be faithful to finish it until the day of Christ Jesus” (from Philippians 1:6), so I prayed thanksgivings instead.
I share with you the Bible verse that has been significant in my life, John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
