Equipping Mothers

God intends that parenting responsibilities are shared between the father and mother., wherever possible. Mothers have a significant role to play in the life of every child and so do fathers. As a mother, I want you to know that you are raising a valuable, worthy and honourable resource on this earth - new human beings. Today, the success of the next generation is your hands. How are you preparing the next generation? 

Williams Ross Wallace in his poem cconfidently declared that a mother occupies a prime position in the life of her children. He states: "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Is The Hand That Rules The World." Today, your child might be so tiny without a voice, you might be raising a king, a priest, a president, a prime minister, or more. 

The scriptures below are meant to stimulate your motherhood instinct in the face of challenges. I implore you to influence and speak positive declaration into the lives of your children , and God will help you as you take your rightful place in the life of your child. The first nine months that provided the first habitation for your children provides a template for significant relationship between mother and child. Please take some time to read and reflect on the scriptures below.

Psalm 127:4-5

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents.

Proverbs 31:1-9

Mothers in the Bible taught their children unforgettable lessons that helped them to know their worth, value and honour. For instance, King Lemul's mother taught him to do the right things in position of power.

King Lemuel's made a positive contribution to the life of her a King and a whole nation. She made a clear distinction between her son that she holds in high esteem and the rest.

Proverbs 31:1; Songs of Solomon 8:2

I would lead you and bring you to my mother’s house she who has taught me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the nectar of my pomegranates (Songs of Solomon 8:2).

As a mother, you have a powerful influence over your children 

2 Timothy 1:5

One of life's greatest blessing is to live a godly life that is worthy of emulation by your children.


My mouth is a wellspring of life declaring positive things into the lives of my children. I affirm that my children are eternal excellence, joy of many generations. My children are for signs and wonders; above only and not beneath. Kings shall come to the brightness of my children's light.

I speak fresh life into every troubled child in Jesus' name, Amen.
