Pray for the Godly Mothers
When God has a purpose a child is born, not an election held by men.
Godly Mothers are the most unappreciated, abandoned, unsupported, ordained of God teachers of young men and women and children segment of America.
While the women that suffer from acute narcissism are glorified and excused from molesting and aborting the children of our Creator.
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith,
in charity, in patience.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers
of good things
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their
husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to
their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works in
doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Sound speech, that cannot be condemned that he that is of the
contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of
Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to
please them well in all things not answering again
Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity that they may
adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we
should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous
of good works.
These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority.
Let no man despise thee.
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers,
to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle,
shewing all meekness unto all men.

I have hesitated to reply to this post, because what I have to say isn't the most interesting thing to say on a forum. Especially when some have no children.
But, here goes.
I was praying for my children one morning and a thought came to me, 'That's mothering'.
You know what, it is.
We take for granted, cooking, cleaning, washing etc, all the things that a mother is known for.
But, what about their souls, who cares, or mothers, their souls?
Who prays, and cries and weeps for where they will spend eternity?
If the mother doesn't, or the father, then who will?
We know, not all children have both parents, some are orphans.
But if we do not bother, with the children God has given us, satan will find good use for them.
Children are our heritage from God, Ps 127.
Don't neglect them.
They are worth the fight. Every last tear is worthwhile, for God's glory and for their salvation.

I read Eddie's post a couple days ago and appreciated his words. I thought, 'That's what I have, a wonderful, godly mother who has given her life for her children to raise them in the fear and admonition of the Lord.'
And Enid, your post so aptly describes my parents. How grateful I am for their prayers! What a precious heritage it is to have a father and mother who pray for you and weep. I'm so thankful to God for this heritage. It is something I greatly treasure.
