The Christian Working Mom Blog is designed to be a place of support and encouragement for Christian Working Moms. Come join us as we support one another.
I constantly find myself praying that I won't "screw up" my kids. It is kind of a back door way in which I catch myself worrying! As I confess my shortcomings to the Lord - the enemy then chooses to show me how my sins are "going to" affect my kids. It is that Mommy guilt thing I think we all struggle with as working moms. I pray for their safety at school, and for the energy to give my family the devotion that I give to my 9-5!!!
Hi Shelley~Thanks for sharing. The enemy loves to attack us with guilt. Every Mom, I think if they are honest, is afraid on some level of "messing up" their kids. Yet, we serve a Sovereign Lord who will work in our children's lives in spite of us. He is working in their lives and ours as well. Your devotion to praying for your children and family shows that God is all ready working in your family's life. God is faithful even when we are not. Praise God for that!!Thanks for sharing your thoughts Shelley and know that you are not alone.
Hello Kimberly, I came across your blog early this morning. It is refreshing to see a place that supports Christian Working Moms.All to often over the years I have heard remarks in church when referring to moms that work in a negative way. Sometimes it was very hurtful.As a working mom of 5 children, it is often my prayer that God will sustain my strength not to just give my family the "left overs" of me after leaving such a demanding job everyday.I literally have to pray for supernatural energy everyday as part of my prayer. I believe my family deserves the best of me.Thanks for being an encouragement to working moms Kimberly
Hi Dee~I couldn't agree more about praying for supernatural strength for each day. God promises to give us that strength.Thanks for sharing and your kind words.
I pray for continued health and strength. I thank the Lord for blessing us with great resources - He always helps us find a way. But mostly I am just grateful that my children are as healthy as they are. And happy. Oh yeah, and more patience :)
In regards to having time to pray, I pray first thing in the morning, and before I step my foot into work, and during my lunch hour, and about 30 minutes before I go to bed.In regards to prayer topics, I pray that I am first a mighty Disciple of Christ, secondly a godly wife, thirdly a godly motherand fourth, a godly homemaker.
I try to start my day at the office with about 30 minutes of: prayer, Bible reading and writing in my journal.
My prayer is that my 15 month old son will come to know the Lord as his Savior early in life. I pray that God will reveal my son's purpose for him clearly. I ask for protection, joy, and health for my baby boy. I pray that he will have the fruits of the spirit.
Sadly, I can't remember the last time I prayed. Thank you all for the reminder and push that it is so important to do so. May I return to the blog with a different answer soon. God bless.
This is my first blogging experience, I was just feeling a little overwhelmed looking at another night with only 4 hours of sleep. Most times I don't have the time to set aside and read the word or pray, and worst when i am busy and overwhelmed i don't feel like taking the time, but i thank God for the holy spirit when ever i feel like this songs and scripture pour into my head, mind and heart and pushes me along.
