“Survival of the fittest” once the norm in the animal kingdom has now encroached the modern world. The one who gives a tough fight and wades over all odds will survive till the end. Woman is generally considered the weakest of gender. But woman who have tided over untoward situation to prove themselves in life have depicted that strength does not relate to muscular power alone. Strength does include emotional power to be able to change unfavorable situations into favorable ones.
In Proverbs 31:28 we read that women should clothe themselves in strength and dignity. Where does this strength come from? Prayer is the most powerful weapon one can ever invent. Prayer can revive a dying being. Prayer can traverse through a heart of stone to bring life. Prayer can protect you in a tough situation. Prayer can guide you, when lost. In total, prayer gives you the strength to face life’s situations. So a woman on her knees is the strongest force. A praying woman can move God to command an army of angels to protect her. A praying woman can move God’s heart to change the misery of their life. Hannah asked God to change her tears into praises. Goa answered Hannah’s prayer and changed her situation of mockery. Deborah, a praying woman led the army to receive the God-given victory. Though prayer we women can clothe ourselves with the strength and dignity that we need to face life.
As Christian women, let us pray to God that he may provide the required strength for our life. On this Women’s Day, let us pray for other woman to be clothed in strength to face their life. We read in the Bible that when Job prayed for his friends, God changes his imprisonment. So, pray and be clothed in strength.
