Embracing the ministry of being an "Older Woman"

(My Beth Moore Scripture Memory verses for May 15)
Titus 2: 3-5 NIV
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.
Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and
to be subject to their husbands,
so that no one will malign the word of God.

Ephesians 5:33 NIV
And the wife must respect her husband.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I praise you that You are my Heavenly Father.
I repent of my sins.
I acknowledge that You are guiding me in Your ways and giving me Your peace.
(intercession) I am praying for my daughter as she is finishing up her first year at OBU, and
preparing to go work at Falls Creek all summer. I pray that you will give her
energy and knowledge and keep her safe.
I pray for Josh, Adrianne and Madasyn as they move into their new home.
I pray for Jase, as he is so devoted to being your servant.
I thank you for and pray for Jeff in all that he is doing to provide for our family.
I pray for our parents and all of our family members.
Dear God, I pray for our friend, Josh Murphy and his parents, as Josh is
rehabilitating and recuperating from a terrible accident.
(supplication) Dear Lord, I pray that you will show me Your will for my life. I pray that
will be able to minister to others for You.
(equipping) Dear Lord, please equip me to do everything you want me to do.
Please help me to be the best wife, mom, friend and worker that I can be.
In Jesus' Name I Pray,
