Prayer Calendar Reflection: May 2013

The Prayer Calendar has sometimes been called a storybook. This is because it tells the stories of the work of missionaries nationally and around the globe.
This month as we celebrate Mothers Day, Deaconess Sonia Cruz from San Antonio, Texas, shares the story of women who have made an impact in her life:
Who has influenced your life and put you in the path that has led to this moment? The first person who taught me to pray was my maternal grandmother. My mother taught me the importance of education. My aunt taught me to have faith of a mustard seed. Members of my local organization of United Methodist Women taught me the importance of mission work. All these women have been my supporters, prayer partners and role models in mission service.
Excerpt from Prayer Calendar 2013, week of May 12.
Take a moment and reflect:
- Who are the women who have made a difference in your life?
- Who are the people around you who are not able to reach their God-given potential?
- How can we become women and men of good news in our communities?
