Mayday-A 30 Day Devotional Journey of Prayer

1 samuel 1:27

27For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him.

Hannah. The quintessential intercessory mother, starts our journey. As we prepare our hearts to come alongside the lost and broken youth and their mothers take a moment and think about your own journey of life bringing. Whether you have physically birthed, or adopted, or been a step parent or a surrogate Grandma, Aunt, Sister, or Mother to the lonely, you have cared for life.

Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate. --Charlotte Gray

Please take a moment and visit the Sojurn Community where the prayer wall will be posted and drop a note about your own mothering journey and say a prayer for us, here is my prayer for you:

Abba, I come to you in this Holy moment. I ask you to visit us in power over these next several days. Would you speak to us of your mothering heart for the broken, the lost, the naked, the shamed, the lonely, the ones unseen? Give us the words to pray and declare life into our communities and over your children. Help us to carry the burden of prayer with diligence and passion. Turn the children of this nation into lovesick warriors of your Son. We love you and we thank you for the power of a praying heart. In Jesus Name, Amen
