Every mother prays, even if only, “Lord, give me patience!” Just as children need our love at every age, so too they always need our prayers. Challenged by her children’s school principal asking, “If not us, who; if not here, where; if not now, when,” Julie Cragon began praying specifically for each of her children. Just as children need our love at every age, so too they always need our prayers. Cragon provides prayers for every stage of their growth, beginning even before they are born and going all the way to the point when they are becoming moms or dads themselves.
Julie Cragon is the mother of six children. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she and her husband manage St. Mary’s Bookstore.
