She Calls Me Mom

Good morning Lord,

I ask you this morning for help in raising my stepdaughter who, in my heart, I have dropped the  word step. She is so much more than stepdaughter she is just like my own daughter. I know I didn’t give birth to her but in my heart I have chosen to love her as my own.

Lord, I need Your guidance and wisdom. I need to be able to help her to grow, not just emotionally, but in her relationship with You. Let me be that light that she needs in this dark world. Help me to understand her better as to what her own personal needs are. I want to be strong for her Lord. I want to model Christ-like behavior at all times. I want her to see the peace and love that only a strong relationship with You can provide.

I know she looks up to me Lord and that is a very honorable thing that brings me joy. It also brings me a deep sense of extreme accountability.

Lord, let the words of my mouth be Your words. I know Lord that with Your guidance through me I will be able to help her to be the lady she needs to be. This is serious business to me Lord Jesus. I want to be pleasing in all I do and say with all of my relationships, but Lord right now I need Your help with this one.

Let me rest in the security of Your loving arms. Knowing that You have said You will never leave me or forsake me and also that You will go with me and even before me preparing the way I should walk in. You have placed me here and given me this beautiful place in her heart. I am honored to be called mom by her. I know that she trusts me some just because of that. Help her to trust me even more. Let her eyes be opened to see the love that I have for her.

Lord, let me give her a godly example to follow. I want to lead her right. Lord, let me be doing and saying good things for her to model after. Let me always remember there are beautiful eyes watching me and learning from me. Let me show Your love, mercy and goodness.

Your word says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Your word  also says that You love to give good gifts to Your children.  Lord, the wisdom I need is…. all that I have prayed for in my relationship with this beautiful young lady who calls me mom. Let her see and know that this lady she calls mom loves her and always will.

I beg You for more of You living in me, speaking through me. Help me Lord to honor You in this most blessed calling of Your daughter being her stepmother. Praise You and thank You Lord for her and for Your great love.

In Jesus name.

Your servant,

Donna Marie
