praying for myself

13 Apr

But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.

Timothy 2:15 (NASB)

Through my child bearing years, this verse always caught my attention.   I read it again the other day, only this time from a different perspective.  I am no longer bearing children, yet I am still to “continue  in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.”

Faith: a strong conviction, firm belief,complete trust…

Love: strong affection for another, unselfish, loyal, tenderness…

Sanctity: holiness of life and character…

Self-restraint: to keep under control, to moderate…

This is not only a worthy prayer for ourselves, but also for the other women in our lives.
