On Wednesday I had the privilege of meeting for the first time Fern Nichols. She flew in from San Diego to Houston to speak.
Fern is the founder of Moms in Touch International (MITI).
She shared with us about leaving a Legacy of Love for our children. The way to leave a legacy of love is by praying for them. I can even be praying for future generations of my family right now and those prayers will outlive me.
Prayer is such a powerful tool....from that first prayer of surrender to God when we give our life to Him and know we have no hope for eternity without Jesus and his saving work on the cross... to the daily prayers we lift up interceding for others and offering praise and thanksgiving to God.
As Fern reminded us that God shapes the world through prayer and Intercessors can shape history.
If you are a mom go to the Moms In Touch website and see if there is a group of moms praying at your child's school. There are groups all over the world.
I know you probably pray for your children on a daily basis, but just meeting with other moms and hearing them pray for your child will mean more than you can imagine.
At Moms In Touch they reassure Moms that: When you pray God's Word you pray God's will.
That is why at MITI we use scripture to pray for our children. We simply insert their name into a scripture.
For example: a prayer to be safe from harm....
God Most High, I ask that You would command Your angels concerning ____ to guard____ in all his/her ways (Psalm 91:11)
Me and a couple of my praying mom friends along with Fern:
