As moms with kids to take care of, dishes to put away, laundry to fold, and groceries to buy, it’s not always easy to remember to make time and just sit with the Lord. And even if we do remember, sometimes we’re just too exhausted to pray.
I have found that doing a quick devotional every day has helped me to focus my quiet time with God on a specific topic, such as my relationship with my husband, finding joy and contentment in Jesus, or cultivating more patience as a mom. When I have a prompt or guidance in some way, my time with Jesus is much richer and more fulfilling.
I’ve written 10 simple prayers for moms to pray daily to hopefully help you enjoy a little bit of quiet time with Jesus every day.
