Honoring Women And Children In A World At War #14


I started to share these devotionals or readings from "Prayers for Crown Jewels" yesterday here which I found as a Bible Reading plan at You Version, however Karen Deits Carlson shares them also each day at the "Prayers for Crown Jewels" website, but it's #14 for today over there, the website corresponds to the day. The You Version link (YV) above goes to the current day reading, as will any daily link, the link is the same. Now that I understand this or know a little more of how this works, I've decided to read on "Prayers for Crown Jewels" website and so I skipped ahead from Day 2 on my YV plan, which I shared yesterday "Access to Scripture", which is #1 in Topics, to #14 

these are the scripture readings chosen
  • Jeremiah 46:11
  • Matthew 18:21-22
  • Hebrews 12:15
  • Matthew 5:44
  • John 14:26
  • Galatians 2:20
  • Lamentations 3:22-23

I just love the prayer given at "Prayers for Crown Jewels" and I hope you will join us today and pray this:

"Millions of women and children today need You, O Comforter, as they struggle to make it through the day. Unbelievable horrors have been levied against them, who are made in Your likeness, who are reflections of Your glory. Wrong after wrong, year after year, they have hung on by a thread. Multitudes do not know that You are the Balm of Gilead, the only One who can soothe, heal, and restore.

Jesus taught to forgive those who harm and shatter everything near and dear. Remind them how much You have forgiven them. You know the abuse each one has faced and/or is facing today. May Your Holy Spirit bring to mind any unconfessed sin or person to forgive. In faith these women and children will resist the roots of bitterness, rage, and hopelessness to be planted in their spirits. You stand ready to gather these precious souls into Your arms enabling them to forgive their enemies or their families for their part in this abuse.
Because of the enemy’s lies, some may even blame You. Many women have regrets over choices they made. Encourage them to forgive themselves. As each one reaches out in the power of the Holy Spirit to forgive, may You overwhelm them with peace and joy in their spirits. Only You can make that exchange. Use this in their lives to show others around them the difference of Christianity, which is Christ in them.
We acknowledge that Your loving-kindnesses and Your compassion never ceases or fails. They are new every morning. Even though many circumstances cloud that truth, we believe that Your faithfulness is great. It is hard to understand that these women and children are blessed because You will embrace them in a way most of us will never experience. "Karen D.Carlson

Please continue this

I feel today's prayer can be prayed for many of us!

If I do continue to link each day ... I will no longer be sharing the prayer but asking/hoping that you follow either the link to You Version or continue daily at "Prayers for Crown Jewels" HOME.

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
