Proverbs 16:32 says, "Patience is better than power, and controlling one's emotions than capturing a city." 

This verse grabbed my attention because I like to be in control. In fact, most of the time when I lose control of my emotions it's because I feel out of control in some way. 

I lose my power over a situation to make it be what I think it should be, and it doesn't feel good. 

But my ability to control to this degree is an illusion anyway. 

This week, on the Million Praying Moms podcast, we're talking about how a mom can learn to control herself, letting go of her need for power and doing battle in God's power instead. Tune in now!

This episode is a reading from day seven of  Everyday Prayers for Patience.
