Prayers, Verses, and Moments with God for Intentional Moms

Updated: Jan 12

A Quick Note from Val

As I pray for all of you intentional moms, God often gives me words of encouragement to share with you. This is a few of those thoughts, prayers, and verses from my heart to yours. You can check back in on this post every few months as I'll add more prayers and thoughts to the top.

Walking this worthy journey of motherhood right along with you,


An Intentional Mom's Prayer in the Complexity of Life

Dear Lord, Compel me according to YOUR will to speak or be silent, move or stand firm, take action or hold restraint. Help me to identify YOU at work around me and then JOIN YOU in YOUR work. Purify my heart of MY perspective motives agenda to make room for YOUR perspective motives agenda.

Give me the courage and wisdom to stand with YOU no matter what the cost.

In the precious, holy name of Jesus the Christ. Amen (let it be so).

An Intentional Mom's Morning Prayer

Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

When God calls us to step out in faith it brings a mixture of exhilaration and fear. It feels exciting that the God of the universe is allowing little ol' me to be a part of His plans, but it is equally frightening to think of failure and humiliation that could follow such a "risky" move out of my comfort zone.

With each step forward is another step of choosing faith over fear.

Living intentionally doesn't mean we have it all figured out or that we feel confident about our steps. Being an intentional follower of Christ means I choose the next step even though I feel the bridge shaking and I see the open expanse below my feet. I step again and trust again and step again until pretty soon I recognize that the fear is just the enemy's attempt to keep me from God's best, which is a sign that I'm pursuing God's miracle-level life for me. Keep calling me, God,and I'll keep stepping because the swinging bridge suspended above the expanse holds a beautiful view that didn't exist in my comfort zone.

Identify the God Moments in Your Child's Day

God is Your Redeemer

Motherhood is not an easy path. It requires a strength that is beyond description. It's greatest rewards are not easily acquired. We can long for peace and time alone while simultaneously feeling lonely. Our resources seem ever meager while we feel an overabundance of non-essential clutter.

God says He will strengthen you. He says He will never leave you alone. He says that He will go before and you can follow Him. He says that you will have everything you need. And He longs to be your salvation. Mom Friend, rest in His strength, in His guidance, in His resources, and in His redemption today.

Your the Master Gardener of Your Child's Heart

Find Refuge in His Salvation

This verse is Psalm 27:1. I'm sharing it for the mama who feels she has nothing left to give. You may be feeling broken and alone. Intentional Mom, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The Lord is your LIGHT and your SALVATION! He is the stronghold of your life. You do not need to fear. The Creator God of the Universe, all powerful and all knowing, all resources are at His disposal. He is at work in your life, working all things for the good of those who love Him. Surrender your pain and brokenness to Him today. He will give you the strength to do everything He wants you to do today. Then He will do the rest. Jesus said in John 16:33, "I have told you these things so that in me (Jesus) you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I (Jesus) have overcome the world."
