When Women Pray – 3

Her husband died. Her sons died. She said, “The hand of the Lord has gone out against me” (Ruth 1:13).

Still, Naomi prayed for the wives her sons left behind. “May the Lord deal kindly with you. . . . The Lord grant you rest, each in the house of her husband” (from Ruth 1:8-9). 

One daughter-in-law, Ruth, chose to follow Naomi’s God and is now in the lineage of Christ (see Matthew 1:5).

That’s what happens when women pray. Even when life is hard.
