{S8-E2} Why Does Prayer Matter, with Sandra Peoples

“Prayer is a matter of the state of your HEART, not the state of your LIFE.”

Inside of Praying Mom: Making Prayer the First and Best Response to Motherhood, are 7 common challenges that keep moms from a vibrant prayer life. About half of them relate directly to the state of a mom’s life.

  • Too busy.
  • Too overwhelmed.
  • Too many little children.
  • Too difficult a diagnosis.
  • Too many loose ends.

And these life circumstances are 💯 reality for moms. They are. We get it. But just as true (or even truer) is that behind the state of our lives is the state of our hearts.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it” (Proverbs 4:23).

Yes, life may make it easier to neglect the things that feel like our greatest priority…until we come to see that prayer, or simple relationship with our Creator, IS our greatest priority. That’s why every chapter of Praying Mom goes beneath the story to the heart of the matter, helping you take a biblical look at what’s really keeping you from praying (and giving you the tools to overcome it).

Today, Brooke McGlothlin is interviewing Sandra Peoples on the podcast. Sandra contributed the story of her son’s Autism diagnosis and how the state of her life affected the state of her heart in chapter one of Praying Mom (you can read it when you pre-order the book). In the interview, Brooke asks her to share why prayer matters to her, and her answer is profound and 💯 worth the 20 minute listen. Go find it anywhere you listen to podcasts!
