When life gets chaotic and I feel crushed by defeat

I remember I am a woman of prayer.

 

When fear envelops me and I succumb to thoughts that disable

I remember I am a woman of prayer.

 

When money is scarce and I become entrapped in worry

I remember I am a woman of prayer.

 

When my heart grieves over the cruelty of this world and wonders if love has perished

I remember I am a woman of prayer.

 

When hopelessness lingers as sickness invades our frail bodies

I remember I am a woman of prayer.

 

When God’s grace eclipses the realities of this world

I remember I am a woman of praise.

  9. Love this! We tend to forget at times we are women of prayer. We have great power on our knees before God earnestly seeking him for others and our self. May he ignite a fire and passion in us to seek him I’m all things.
