This new series is one i have felt led by God to start for a while and recently decided to stop saying No to it and obey. Since becoming a mom, i feel like i have a new heart towards children especially when i see them in pain or discomfort. It is definitely hard watching a parent struggle to help them kids fight cancer or lose their child. I cannot even imagine what it feels like. Hence this new series, the only thing i know how to do in situations like these is to pray to the one who sees it all, our heavenly father. Children are our next generation and the enemy is fighting violently against this happening. We need to stop folding our arms watching, lets fight together in Prayer.
This will be a weekly series where i share a blog post once a week about a particular topic for kids and include some prayers to it. This way, we can join hands in prayer regarding the topic. You are welcome to comment on the post, share or even reach out to me if there is a topic or child you would love us to pray about.
The vision for this series is to provide an avenue to come together as Women of God and pray for children. It is not limited to your own children alone, in fact, the intention is to look around ourselves and see other children and families in need besides ourselves. Too many times as women, we are quick to feel upset over issues going on around us. We look in the papers or on social media, see the evil going on, shake our heads and say “this is so pathetic” “God is their strength” blah blah. However, how often do you actually take a step towards making a positive change? I recently started reading a book called Lioness by Lisa Bevere. It has really started opening up my eyes to what God intends for us as women. He needs us to be Lionesses and to be confident in who he has called us to be. We need to rise up and stand up for each other rather than being so comfortable in our own lives.
Day in day out, i see so many children fighting various sicknesses, rape, abortion, child abuse, financial struggle and so much more. This series is an opportunity to stand in the gap for all these children and also to ask God to show us how we can be voices for these children. I remember reading the book Lioness, she mentioned when she prayed to God to help her be a voice for some girls and he made a way. I decided to ask God to help me be a voice for Children and he finally gave me this vision of using my blog to share weekly prayer series.
My prayer is that as we come together to pray as Lionesses of God, that we will impact the world for Christ. That we will overthrow the kingdom of darkness and break the chains that the enemy has on our children worldwide. I also pray that through this, many more women will become voices in various ways the Lord wants us to be used.
- Lord, we ask you to use this series in a way that only you knows how to.
- We pray that you make us voices in various areas of lives for your kingdom.
- Give us the confidence and strength we need to obey your will
- We pray that you lead us to children that need to be prayed for.
- We pray you open up our hearts to love on others.
- We pray you give us eyes, mouth, and ears that only you have and help us to see the world around us the way you see it.
- We pray you make us a community of Lionesses for you.
- Lord, if there is any woman here waiting on you for the fruit of the womb, we join our faith with them and ask that you bless them.
By God’s grace, i will be posting the series every Tuesday, latest Wednesday if life gets in the way.
