Sermon: 1997 – Magnificent Mother
Pray Over This
“And she said, ‘O my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to the Lord.’”
Abraham Lincoln said, “All that I am, or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” I talked and prayed with the past President of the United States, George Bush, about his personal salvation, his relationship with Christ, and he looked me in the eyes and said, “I want to tell you, my mother was the most godly person I’ve ever known.” He told me about the influence his mother had on his life. Augustine, that great believer and theologian, was a renegade boy, but he could not escape the prayers of his mother, Monica. John and Charles Wesley, out of whose hearts and minds came the Methodist church, had a mother whose name was Susanna.
If you want to know who the mother of Methodism is, it was Susanna. She raised those children for Jesus Christ. And I’ve read what Dr. Billy Graham had to say about his godly mother.
There is nothing greater than raising a baby for Jesus Christ. Never underestimate the power of a mother.
- What is the most significant impact your mother has had on you?
- What impact might you be having on those closest to you, whether or not you are a mother?
Take time in prayer to thank God for your mother or someone else in your life who pointed you toward Him.
