40 Days of Prayer - Day 9

Women: Virtue

Proverbs 31:10

Who can find a virtuous woman?  For her price is far above rubies.

Abigail Adams, a Patriot during the American Revolution, understood what makes a woman great: 
“Adhere to those religious sentiments and principles which were early instilled into your mind, and remember that you are accountable to your Maker for all your words and actions.”


Lord God, forgive us for being women who have traded righteousness for our own self-indulgence.  Draw us unto You.  Take us under Your sheltering wing and flood us with the truth found in Your Word.  Make us women of virtue.  May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable unto Thee oh Lord.  May we become a light in a dark place, a treasured wife, an honored mother and a respected citizen.  Show us our strengths and let our weaknesses be made perfect in You.  For without You, we are nothing.  Make us strong in spirit and truth, that we might glorify Your Holy Name in all that we say and do.  In Jesus’ precious name we pray and ask, Amen.
