A New Mom’s Prayer Advice

I listened as a new mom told our very pregnant friend: “Taking care of a baby leaves little time for formal prayer. I’m learning to pray all the time; when I’m nursing, when I’m changing diapers, when I wake up at night.”

She also said, “I ask for wisdom to raise my baby boy because James 1:5 says, ‘If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.‘”

Waiting for the Storm

My father-in-law* sat in his Florida home, waiting and watching for Hurricane Irma to arrive.

Every time I spoke with him he quoted Philippians 4:6-7. “In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds.”

He found this to be true.

So can you.

*His home and neighborhood, though buffeted by winds, were virtually unharmed by the storm.
