Obedience Brings Blessings By Tami Crowley

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him. Luke 1l:13
Several years ago, a handful of mothers got together once a month to pray for their children. They prayed all the typical things that mothers hope for; good health, good grades, good choices in friendships, safety and that they grow to love the Lord. They did not only pray for their own children, but prayed for each child in several classrooms by name. The children at school would even write prayers on slips of paper and leave it for the praying moms group. It was a sweet time where the mothers met and their friendships grew out of the common bond of motherhood and love for God.
Through the years together, these women became comfortable to pray out loud, to cry out to God for little broken fingers and sometimes broken hearts. They prayed for pets who died, sick grandparents, and children who had troubled home lives. These women grew to know the details of these children’s lives and prayed for them for years. Eventually, the children went to different high schools, colleges and ultimately had careers of their own.
These women stayed together. Year after year, these women got together a few times a year to catch up and say a little prayer. A bond had been formed, with Christ as the center. They had the certainty of knowing that God hears the pleas of mothers, and the faith that all things are possible through Him.
What started out as seeking good for the children and being obedient in prayer on behalf of their children, ended up being a blessing for these moms. A friendship was forged, where women felt safe to state their joys and concerns. They watched their children grow up, and they have aged as well, hitting significant birthday milestones.
These women got more than they asked for, and when God is honored and placed first, God always give more than can be imagined.
God poured out his blessing of FRIENDSHIP.
I Corinthians 2:9 What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived, the thing God has prepared for those who love God
