Good Shepherd Church is forming a Mother’s Prayer Group. Based on the model established in 1995 by the group called Mothers Prayers of the Solace Community, the group will meet monthly beginning Tuesday, October 2 at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary.
In 1995, two grandmothers in England, Veronica and her sister- in- law Sandra, felt led by the Lord to start Mothers Prayers and to pray in a special way for their children. Since then, the group has spread around the world and is in over 100 countries, having the approval, support and blessing of Christian leaders of all denominations.
If you would like to be part of this forming ministry at Good Shepherd Church, please see Mrs. Gwen Martinez. She may be reached by text/phone at 504-481-5118 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the Mothers Prayers website (www.mothersprayers.org):
Lord Jesus, we come before you as mothers, wanting you to bless our children, and all children throughout the world.
We thank you for our children - they are a precious gift to us. Help us, always to remember this, especially when they are in difficulties
Lord, they live in a troubled world - a world that does not always acknowledge you, - a world that may sometimes cause them to be laughed at if they admit to belief in you.
Help them to be strong, Lord. Helps us to know that you are always with us - sharing in the joys and in the sorrows, joining us in the laughter and weeping with us in the pain.
Please give us all the graces we need, to fulfil your plans for our lives and for our duties in our families. You are Almighty God. You can change things.
So we turn to you in faith and love knowing that you will answer our prayers. Lord let us always remember how much you love us and our children and how you urge us to come to you with our problems.
