The Gift of a Praying Mother

 from Herald of His Coming

When David Talmage, the father of the famous preacher, T. DeWitt Talmage, was an eighteen-year-old boy still living at home with his brother Jacob and his sister, one night the three of them were going to a party.

Their mother, who was an invalid, just before they left, called them to her bedside and said, You are going out to a festive party; but I want you to know that I shall be on my knees praying for you until you return.

They went, and on their return passed their mother’s door at two o’clock, catching a glimpse of her still kneeling by her bed.

Instructions for a Godly Woman

The following article is a transcribed message from a ladies' meeting where Helen Leibee was speaking. It is often technically difficult to print these transcriptions and still maintain the flow and spirit of the actual meeting. However, many ladies have testified that this meeting was very beneficial to them, so we felt it would be a blessing to put it into print. May the Lord add His blessing. ~Bro. Dean

Emotional Freedom

For Young Ladies

As young ladies, we are created with a need for emotional fulfillment. Though the desire for marriage is a God-given gift, the Lord has also supplied abundant grace to live happily without a life partner, for as few or many years as He should choose.

The Wisdom of Work

Dear Mother Friends,
It seems so long since I have chatted with you. I am a grandma now twice, and my little band of followers has become much smaller. The oldest two are married. One daughter is often gone to help other mothers cope and survive, and our son is out on his lawn-mowing job. Once again our children at home daily are fourteen, twelve, nine, seven and four years old. How quickly the ten years have passed since the last five were that age! How many lessons we have learned.

The Longing Prayers of a Sister

"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I." Psalm 61:1-2


Oh God, make me a woman…
who has God first in every area of my life; wholly devoted to the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Make me faithful…faithful in prayer; faithful in times of fasting; faithful in Bible reading; faithful in memorizing and meditating on His word; faithful in rising early to give Him the first part of my day; faithful in praise. Make me obedient…instantly obedient to the clear direction of God through His Word and Spirit; that the Lord Jesus Christ might be manifest in my life, to the glory of the Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit; daily seeking God’s direction.

Young Ladies and Their Thought Live



It is the end of a long day, and you are beginning to feel tired. Alone in your room, there is one last thing to do before getting in bed. Holding a letter in your hands, you turn on the lamp and sit at the desk. In this quiet moment, when the day is over and night is drawing close, you slide the paper from its envelope once more.

Beyond Obedience

As a child Growing up in New York City I heard nothing about submission. I was married when I was thirty-two, and it was around that time I first started hearing about the idea of obeying your husband. I thought, “Oh, okay, I’ll obey him.” But I had no idea how unsubmissive I really was. It was not until later that the Lord showed me my attitudes, my controlling spirit and other destructive areas of my life.

Because of my past, it may seem like I would be the wrong one to be sharing on obedience. But the Lord has changed me, and where sin abounds grace much more abounds. Today I can say that I am filled with grace on this subject because I have made many mistakes.

A Quiet Place to Stand

“ quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. In returning and rest shall ye be saved....” Isaiah 30:15

“Be still, and know that I am God....” Psalm 46:10

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him....” Psalm 37:7

“...He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul....” Psalm 23:2,3

“Come ye yourselves apart...and rest awhile....” Mark 6:31

We live in a land full of hustle and bustle, noise, commotion, and coming and going. There is something to do, somewhere to go, and someone to talk to every minute of the day. Gone are the quiet woods, the peaceful countrysides, and the long winter evenings by the fireside.

Many, many of us mothers struggle with how to use the fragments of time that we have. We become discouraged because we do not have whole days or hours of time to offer God.

Our days are fragmented. Our quiet time and prayers are often interrupted along with our sleep. Often we become frustrated. We long for time to read our Bibles and pray without interruptions. We wonder when we will have a whole night’s sleep again. We wish to be able to finish a sewing project or scrub a floor without having to stop, and yet this is seldom the case.
