A Mother’s Day Prayer for Courage
By Jessica Van Roekel
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” - Deuteronomy 31:6, ESV
I remember the sleepless nights when my grown-up babies were babes in my arms. Their cries for comfort or hunger filled the midnight space, and I stumbled down the hall to scoop them up. I sat in a rocking chair and hummed a little song as they snuggled close. Then the years went by, and they grew from baby to toddler and child to teen. My nights became my own again as I slept night after night, knowing they were tucked in safe and sound down the hall.
