The stress of being a mother often seems unbearable for even the “average mother”. Now, just imagine being jobless, homeless and living in a shelter! It would be safe to say that most mothers at Lydia House have or are experiencing some kind of stress.
Stressed Mothers’ Prayer:
Abba, please give your special peace to the stressed mother. May she have clarity of thought, discernment and wisdom today.
