Woman of Prayer

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- December 14, 2012

“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19

The shepherds celebrated Jesus’ birth with public praise, but Mary pondered this life-changing event in private prayer. Indeed, the heart of a woman of prayer is captured by the goodness and generosity of God. Wow, He sent His son to earth to save sinners! The joy of anticipating baby Jesus caused Mary to explode in thanksgiving to her heavenly Father. Like fine jewelry left in her care by a loved one, she treasured this precious gift.

Furthermore, the Christmas season seizes the heart of a prayerful woman with gratitude. In your daily quiet time you are quite taken aback by the Lord’s blessings: knowing Him through faith in Jesus, good health, obedient children, an affectionate husband, a fun job and a warm home. Your prayer time reminds you of what really matters, as you learn to value Christ’s values above all. As you muse on God’s gifts, truth tenderizes your heart.

“Then He [Jesus] went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But His mother treasured all these things in her heart.” Luke 2:51

Your prayer time protects your heart from becoming hardened by hurt and it stops your ego from edging God out. Your spiritual convalescence is your prime time to be loved by your heavenly Father; an unloved woman cannot love well. If you always give without receiving, you are a candidate for chronic exhaustion. Like a camouflaged coiled snake, bitterness is waiting to bite your sweet soul. But intimacy with God immunizes your heart.

If you are married to a woman of prayer, thank God and thank her every day. If your mother or grandmother is a woman of prayer, ask them how you can pray for them. A woman of prayer moves men to pray and love Jesus. A woman of prayer is the Lord’s mouthpiece to mankind. Listen to women who pray and ponder their words in your heart!

“They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.” Acts 1:14

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the women in my life who pray for me daily.
