A Very Important Message To All Moms (present, future, biological and spiritual)

A sista-friend from seconday school, Izegbuwa Aderogba sent this to all of us in our set and I cannot tell you how it touched me deep in my soul. I am sure it will do same to any woman, mother and wife (now and future) who read this and takes time out to meditate on what it truly means for all us who have been called to be 'Mothers' (biological and spiritual).

Please read and may God open the eyes of your heart to 'see' what he has in these words for YOU in Jesus name. Amen! (italics and underlining are mine)

In Luke 7, Jesus observed a  huge funeral procession in Nain. The entire town was present. He observed the young men and women weeping. He observed the pastors and apostles weeping. He observed the elders weeping. He observed the fathers weeping. He observed the children weeping. He observed the sadness on people's faces. Nothing seemed to move Him, until HE SAW THE MOTHER!

The Bible says He had compassion when He saw her and immediately raised her boy from the dead. (Luke 7:12-15). It was the cry of a mother that moved the Heart of God. Still today, Mothers who cry before the Lord for their families, for their marriages, for their homes move the Heart of God.

When Mothers stop praying their families (especially their children) perish. Satan gets a foothold and starts to destroy the home, yet when they return to their rightful place as the anchor of the home, demonic strongholds get demolished. In Psalms 17, 36, 57, 63, and 91 God's role is likenend to that of a Mother. As a Mother protects, upholds and defends her children, so does God also protect us under the shadow of His Wings . We find refuge there and can hide there until the danger is over.

A mother's role is so vital that a father cannot get his prayers answered if he dishonours/ disrespects her (1 Peter 3:7). Because, of this favour over mothers, they are also the most attacked persons in the home. The devil is terrified of Mothers (the powerhouse in the home). Yet the Lord has put inside Mothers grace and resilience to overcome any situation. Today, As the woman of the home, consider yourself blessed. Consider yourself highly favoured and consider yourself dangerous when you pray.

Need I say more? You see what you are about to read is the reason behind Pastor B's Woman Cry Out (WCO) Ministry, it is the reason behind the Joined Up Motherhood and it is the reason behind Return of the Helper (ROTH). I pray you catch the revelation in Jesus name. Amen!


I cannot shout o! Whatever you do, if you a mother, you must be a 'Pray-er'. Period.

  3. This went viral on blackberry, and contains a lot of truth. A mother's role in the life of a child is a most important one and God Himself gave us this honor. My prayer is that as mothers, we may use our influence positively, and learn to pray as God would have us do. Thanks for sharing sis.
