How to Fix the Monotony of Motherhood

Did you know…

The average mom changes 2,008 diapers per year…
Washes 192 loads of laundry every year…

She generally provides the majority of the meals her family eats, is in charge of homework, plans the family outings, keeps the family schedule, and in many cases, is in charge of the spiritual health of her family. We’re not trying to knock the role of dads. In a lot of homes, he shares the burden in significant, deeply meaningful ways. The point is that moms often find themselves doing the same things over and over and over and over and……….. you get the point.

This monotony can be a source of stress, frustration, and boredom. But it can also be the perfect place to deepen your relationship with God, and use the time He’s given you to pray for your children.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to be a praying mom.

The other day I was talking to a friend of mine…a mature woman of God whose life and ministry I hold in high esteem…about prayer. I was telling her about Million Praying Moms, and the work we’re doing here for the Kingdom. And in the middle of our time together she stopped me and said, “Brooke, I have to confess that I struggle with prayer myself. I want to pray. I just don’t often know what or how to pray.”

You might think I was shocked. I wasn’t. Over the years I’ve heard this same confession many, many times. Enough times to know that many, many moms struggle with knowing how or what to pray. I struggled in my own motherhood for several years. In the beginning, with two young boys born 23 months apart, the only thing I knew to pray was, “Help me, Jesus!” Turns out it was enough to point me in the right direction and start a lifelong love of inviting Jesus into the moments of my day.

I wish I had possessed a deeper prayer well, if you will, but God heard those cries for help sure as He hears yours, mom, and He specializes in taking nothing and making it into something. All it really takes to invite the holy into the mundane is a mom who will ask, or, if you’re like me, beg.

With the Everyday Prayers library, “I don’t know WHAT to pray,” or, “I don’t know HOW to pray,” or even, “I don’t know WHEN to pray,” become challenges of the past.

We’ve broken down the ages and stages of a child’s life from infancy to adulthood, and created a resource you can use throughout the moments of your day to help you make prayer your first and best response to motherhood. It’s like having a library of prayers for the every day moments of your life as a mom at your fingertips. In fact, that’s exactly what it is. You get:

  • Everyday Prayers for Infants and Toddlers
  • Everyday Prayers for Preschoolers
  • Everyday Prayers for Grade and Middle School
  • Everyday Prayers for High School
  • Everyday Prayers for Young Adults
  • Everyday Prayers for Adult Children

Each stage (10 prayers per stage) is individually priced at $2.99. Buying the entire library (60 prayers) saves you almost 50%. Yours for just $9.99!

With these verses, you don’t ever have to wonder what to pray for throughout your day again. You don’t have to reach the end of your day and feel disappointed because you didn’t even think about God once. This is your starting point. Print out these prayers, cut them up, and tape them in various places and spaces throughout your home. Write them on sticky notes (that’s how I started), or begin memorizing them. When you have the time, read the scripture references and seek to understand what you’re praying. But just pray, ok?

We’ve tried to give you thoughtful prayers that represent the heart of a mom—her concerns, fears, questions, and every day tasks—in your particular stage of motherhood. We promise you that it will make a difference. We make that promise because we’re living proof. And there’s nothing special about us that God would withhold from you.
