As mama to a special needs girl with a rare metabolic disorder, MPS, the road of special needs parenting can be a lonely one. Sometimes I want to tell God that he chose the wrong mama for Taylor. But he didn’t- his plan for Taylor included me- so I’m giving you the best advice I have for those times when you just don’t have answers, or you are frustrated beyond yourself. Or you just feel like you can’t keep going. Pray. Just pray. Because as CS Lewis tells us, “Prayer doesn’t change God. It changes me.” This is how I began to see the one God chose for the job- me. And maybe you will too. Mamas to the one with special needs? Let’s pray together.

A Prayer for Special Needs Moms

Dear Heavenly Father:
Before the world could ever know,
You created my precious girl and
Crafted a beautiful blueprint for her life.
Having special needs and even disabilities
Provides a different kind of normal for our family,
But we are determined to praise you in the storm.
While I’m so blessed to be her mama,
We have our good days and our bad;
Yet you guide us through each one,
Providing mercy and grace in exact measure.
Now we come before You, simply asking,
That you measure out for us once more.
That you who calms storms with your voice
Would calm the storms of our hearts with your presence.

    Oh my this was just what I needed to read today. Had a rough mothers day with our daughter with special needs but we got thru it. She is 17 and that alone tops it off but having other issues can sometimes really be hard. God has placed me in this role of mother for a reason. Going to print and put this in my bible. Thanks so much.

    1. Bless you, Jan. We have our good days and bad days, don’t we? Today was a bit of a rough one for my girl with 4 seizures. But God sees us through!!

  2. Beautiful prayer… I really felt a strong anointing in it that tears ran down as I read it. God is so good and so perfect. He has chosen such a perfect mom for Taylor. Bless you Rachel.

  3. Beautiful thoughts and prayer Rachel!

  4. After just finishing my quiet time with the Lord and not knowing exactly what to pray over my children with special needs; I was blessed to land upon your prayer. It is easy to feel like a failure, like I can’t do this because I keep missing the purpose, it’s too difficult for me and for them but God knew all this in advance. We always make it to the end of one more day through the power of prayer. Thanks for being part of that today! 🙂

  5. Good morning! Thank you for heeding God’s voice and writing such beautiful prayers that I know bless many. I tried linking up this morning but it is not showing so I’m not sure if it is in cyberspace or what happened. I will check later but here is my link http://passagethroughgrace.com/what-i-learned-from-my-third-graders
    Thank you for the weekly link up.

    1. Ooops! It’s there now! Have a wonderful Wednesday, Rachel!
