A Homemaker’s Weak Prayer Life

Good morning, dear readers. I hope you have had a lovely week, and have a blessed weekend ahead of you. You all mean so much to me.

Stepping into the weekend, I usually have more time to reflect. Time seems to slow as my obligations during the week are over. I’m able to focus more on God and on the vision He has given me as a wife, mother, and homemaker.

I know that I need to read my Bible, but sometimes prayer isn’t the first thing that comes to my mind. I do pray throughout the week as my mind goes to it. I pray for guidance when dealing with a defiant child, or when I feel simply overwhelmed by everything that needs to be accomplished in my home.

But rarely do I set large chunks of time aside for prayer. Rarely do I go to a quiet place to pour out my soul to Him.

Scripture teaches us that prayer is a sign that we belong to God. Zechariah 13:9 says “They will pray in my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘You are my people,’ and they will reply, ‘You, LORD, are our God!'”

Prayer is a lifeline to our Father. It is seeking Him, and acknowledging that we need Him. It is a way to draw close to Him.

Seeking God is something we must never forget to do.

  • “I love those who love me, and those who diligently seek me will find me. Proverbs 8:17
  • But from there, you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29
  • ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

While short and simple prayers are important, I really want to dedicate myself to more than that. He deserves all of me, not leftovers that I give Him after doing everything else.

As a wife, homemaker, and mama, I need Him. I need Him greatly! I believe that devoting ourselves to prayer is a way of showing that we have faith in Him. We believe in His promises, and we know that He will deliver.

Not that life will be “perfect.” It rarely is. But we can know that the Lord is in each and every moment, gently teaching us to be more like Him.

What a blessing.
