There’s Nothing Like a Praying Mother

Remember all those times when the worse could have happened… the worse should have happened – but it didn’t?

And even when the worse did happen, and we thought it was the end of the world, there was one constant source of unwavering faith and encouragement that kept us going.

A praying Mother.

In this clip from MONSTER on Netflix, Mrs. Harmon (Jennifer Hudson) continues to inspire hope, encouragement, and faith in her son Steve (Kelvin Harrison, Jr.), reminding him that no matter what happens in life, the Lord will be his refuge and strength (Psalm 28:7):

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
    my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
    and with my song I praise him.

Give Thanks for Praying Mothers

This Mother’s Day weekend, be sure to give thanks for all of the prayers, encouraging words, and tears from our mothers – prayers that God answered covering us from dangers seen and unseen.

Thanks, Mom!
