In today’s world, people appear to get lost in the every day shuffle. Too often, we forget what and who is really important to us. Life didn’t just happen.
Praying for women that are moms is essential in our walk with Christ Jesus. We know that the nurturing and care a child receives during the first few years of their life helps mold the person they will become. Moms need prayer so they can gain the strength needed to overcome obstacles and kiss away the “boo-boos” that children so often have.
