One of our main ministries as mothers is to pray for our children continuously. I think it was Billy Graham’s wife, Ruth, who, when asked how she had managed to raise five children with her husband being away so often answered, “On my knees.”
When I felt like a failure I needed to realize that no matter how many times I blew it, or rather, blew up, God sees my heart and its desire to raise Godly children, discern for them while they are young what His vision is for them, and enable and encourage them to discover their gifts in Him. This can only be done through prayer and reading His Word.
