We moms do know that the enemy is out there desiring to have and destroy our children. Peter warns us that our enemy is like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
Well, did you notice that one four letter word? He is "like" a lion. It doesn't say that he IS a lion.
Moms, remember, you pray to the one who IS the lion. (Revelation 5:5)
When you pray, it might help to picture it this way—
The enemy dressed in lion skin is barring his teeth at your child's face.
But standing over your child, prepared to pounce, is a huge lion growling at your child's adversary.
If I were an artist, I'd draw you a picture, but let the words do that in your mind.
Your fervent righteous prayers joined with those of other moms will work mightily to thwart the plans of the loudmouth counterfeit lion.
Remember James' words? Here is my own paraphrase of James 5:16b.
The earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer of the righteous
make tremendous power available—
the power of the Omnipotent One—
to work wondrous things!
