#12prayers for you and your kids
Moms, if you are like me, you a) don't have hours to pray throughout the day, b) would love more resources to teach your kids about prayer, and c) love Instagram.
Enter Rachel Baxter from Being Made Beautiful. This woman is a mom of five and also an amazing woman of prayer. She started an online community of women who pray (not just moms!) with her #12prayers movement. Twice a month, Rachel and her team write 12 prayers surrounding one topic, and this community of hundreds of women pray Scripture-based prayers throughout the day. Rachel posts the prayers on Instagram, and the idea is to take just 3-5 minutes each time one of the 12 prayers pops up, to pray on the topic.
Today the ministry that I work with and absolutely love, Thrive Moms, has teamed up with Rachel and the #12prayers community to pray through 12 Prayers for the Armor of God. Rachel has written some beautiful prayers based on Ephesians 6, in order for us as moms to pray over ourselves and our kids that we might put on the full armor of God. She's included prayers we can pray with our kids, to teach them about God's armor and also how to pray through "putting on" that armor. What a great resource.
Will you hop over to Rachel's Instagram (@makesomethingbeautiful) today, or to Rachel's blog, and take a few minutes throughout today to pray with us? The easiest way to follow along is on her Instagram account, or searching #12prayersforthearmorofGod on Instagram. We'd love for you to join us!
