The pain a mother feels when her child experience challenges is excruciating. She is a praying mother watching her child experience life. Feeling helpless but knowing God is near. Feeling hopeless but knowing God never disappoints. One could ponder about the pain Mary felt watching her son die of an despicable death. Heart wrenching, but knowing God is in control. The effective, fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much. There is power in a praying parent. Hope does not disappoint.
