A Mom Call to Prayer
Please join us in a National Call to Prayer tomorrow, December 19, at 9:45 a.m. Central Time, as we lift up the families who have been devastated by the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Specifically, we’d like to pray for the moms whose hearts are broken, that they will feel God’s arms surrounding them during the difficult days ahead. We’re also praying for families across our world, whose hearts are filled with fear as they consider these events.
A message from MOPS CEO Sherry Surratt:
My heart hurts as I grieve today with the families in Newtown, Connecticut. The questions of "why?" and "how could this happen?" swirl in my head as I try to make sense of such a horrific tragedy. My head and heart are overwhelmed when I think of the loss and pain these families are facing and I desperately want to help. I know you do as well. While we can’t undo what has occurred, we can join together and do what moms do best: offer unconditional love and support, and an unshakable foundation of strength and courage in the face of pain and loss.
I’d like to invite you to join MOPS International in a National Call to Prayer for moms, by moms. Please join us this Wednesday, December 19, at 9:45 a.m. central time, to observe a moment of prayer as we lift up the families who were devastated by this shooting. Specifically, we’d like to pray for the moms whose hearts are broken, that they will feel God’s arms surrounding them during the difficult days ahead.
I’m also praying for families across our world, whose hearts are filled with fear as they consider these events. None of this makes sense, and fear feels close and crippling. On behalf of moms everywhere, I’m calling out to the God who holds each of us in his big comforting hands. I’m crying out for the moms, who even this day, dealt with fear and anxiety. I’m praying this verse on their behalf:
Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you. I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. (Psalm 61:1-2)
God truly is our rock of comfort and strength, even when nothing around us makes sense. At our Denver MOPS office, we’ll be gathering this Wednesday at 9:45 central time (8:45 mountain) to join hands and pray. We’ll be crying out to the rock that is higher than us on behalf of the dear families in Newtown and for moms everywhere. Will you join us?
