It is essential to use prayer to fight your daily even mundane battles. I didn’t always know this I struggled everyday with most things and didn’t rely on god to fight my battles. That was a big mistake it is so much easier going through life with god. What helped me get through my struggles when changing a habit or schedule was making a point to pray before I did anything and everything. I found that I was able to push through that task most of the time with a very eager heart. It helped me associate what I was doing was for god.
When doing housework or parenting or anything really you should be doing it for god. I find when I do it for god I feel so much more happy about doing the task at hand. Remember “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, Philippians 4:13”. If I need motivation or patience, or even some grace I just go to a quite place and pray until I feel ready. If I’ve been too hard on my kids and yelled and I need forgiveness to help my mood so I don’t stay in a bad mood the whole day. If I need to do the dishes but I just feel like sitting and looking at Facebook. If my kids are being wild when we are doing our homeschooling work and I might just fly off the handle.
I used to think things like this weren’t important enough to pray about like in the bible everything was really struggles. As I have grown in my strength I have learned that god wants us to lean on him even with the little stuff. Let god help you get through you day, when in doubt pray it out.
