The Most Powerful Tool for a Mom's Health
Being a mom is the hardest job and requires us to be healthy, body and mind. Today, I welcome The Better Mom contributor, Clare Smith, to share a special prayer for moms. -XO, Ruth
One of my top tips when I speak with my health clients is to tell them to pray about their health. Some look at me like I'm a crazy fool, while others are like, ummm, how exactly do I do that? I believe that if there is anything threatening your peace with God, your daily focus, and is an idol of the heart, it is worthy of a prayer or two!
The problem I find is that many of us focus on the control it has over us and everywhere we are going wrong, instead of WHO will be our Healer!
Prayer is powerful because prayer changes us. It shows our reliance on Him, and helps us to really discern our own hearts. It's also a way for us to use the Sword of the spirit to slay the chains of bondage we have. May this prayer below be of encouragement to you!
"Lord, may my spirit, soul and body be kept blameless until I see you. It's such a tiring process but I know you are using this aging body of mine to sanctify me--to make me more like you--and although I don't love it, I trust you.
You are a God of peace and you alone will be the only way through this process so help me to cling to you and not any personal trainer, workout plan, or diet. (But, thanks for providing such great resources to help me while on this earth!)
Thank you for your promise to complete the good work in me that you started even BEFORE my physical body made it to this world. You are faithful and you are good.
In Jesus name, Amen!"
