~A Mother's Thankful Heart and Prayer~

**Last day to get your name in the drawing for a very powerful prayer book..."Everyday I Pray For My Teenager" by Eastman Curtis. You don't have to have a teenager to find this book a very powerful tool when praying for your children, nieces, nephews or grown children. It is all about praying the Word of God over them. Please leave me a comment on this post or the one that I posted yesterday...celebrating one year since God spared my son's life. There is power in prayer...never underestimate it!!!**

I posted this prayer back in May '08 after writing about the "Pain of a Mother's Breaking Heart". This post gives more background into the battles both in the physical and spiritual realms that we have encountered with Brandon over many, many years.

Satan has tightened his grip on Brandon but if he thinks this mama is going to roll over and let the enemy have her son...he has got another thought coming. I am just now getting started good in my battle. Satan is a liar and a loser because the war has already been won. Jesus took the keys to death, hell and the grave when He died on the cross for our sins. The final chapter has already been written but I guess, Satan hasn't read it yet.

Heavenly Father:

I thank you for the precious life that you entrusted me with 22 years ago (now, almost 23). I know that I have not been the perfect mother, I have asked Brandon to forgive me for my shortcomings and repented for where I failed you as a mother. But you know, Lord...the one thing that I have never failed in is my love for Brandon.

Father, I thank you for your hand of protection that you have had on his life, as you have spared his life...not once but twice. Once in the ocean when he was so near death, but he cried out to you and you saved him and his dad. I know without a doubt that your hand of protection was on him that dreadful night in March ('08)...Your hand shielded him from death because Satan intended on taking his life that night.

Father, I thank you for the Blood of Jesus that had been prayed over Brandon so many times...Your Blood is what saved his life. I know that you have a special calling on Brandon's life and your have great and mighty things in store for him. He will be your voice to the lost and hurting young people of this world.

Father, I thank you that you knew Brandon before he was formed in my womb and you had a plan for him even then...that plan has not changed. I love you and I thank you for all that you have done for Brandon and will continue to do for him and through him.

In Jesus Name...Amen

God hears our prayers and He welcomes our thanks and praise!

**If you are interested in having your name in the drawing for the drawing...mention it in a comment here or on the post below.**

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. Hang in there my friend! You are so right. I once heard a lady say, "Satan is butt naked and doesn't own a toothbrush so why should we fear him?" That just about sums it up nicely!

  2. God bless you sweet friend. I look forward to hearing the praise report of Brandon's salvation.


  3. amen amen amen..praying in agreement with ya sis..Matthew 18:18-20..I have a prayer that I say each day over my children. It's ALL scriptural and in it, I also pray about asking God to forgive me for my short comings, any hurts that I may have caused my children. I add hubby's name in there too. I pray this each morning during my devotional time with our Father.....

  4. Amen, Mama Bear! I am praying for Brandon, too, my friend.

  5. There!! Take that, Satan!!!

    Hugs from TN!

  6. Still praying for Brandon...The power of a praying parent...satan will be defeated.

  7. Jenn,

    I had someone tell me today they 'paused and prayed' for my daughter. I want you to know I just paused and prayed for your Brandon.

    Big hugs to you my sister.

  8. Jennifer, Every time you speak or post the victory God gave you in sparing Brandon's life, is a kick in satan's face! The Bible says, he is beneath our feet, so keep giving God the praise!
    Your prayer over your son is powerful and God is answering it now. Love and prayers, Carolyn
