Tamera Mowry-Housley sporadically shares prayers with her fans on social media and her latest one has to do with encouraging people about their current circumstances in life.

Mowry-Housley, the 37-year-old actress and co-host of "The Real" talk show, took to Instagram to share a prayer that she found on motivational speaker Lloyd Barker's Instagram page.

In a short letter that begins with, "Dear Self," Barker speaks about people not rushing God's plan for their life.

"Since He touched it, He blessed it, so there is no need to worry," he wrote. "Simply understand and believe that you are right where you ought to be and that God is not finished with you yet. Added greatness is in store for you."

After she shared Barker's message, Mowry-Housley captioned the image by writing, "Amen .. Stay encouraged guys."

The wife of Fox News correspondent Adam Housley has shared publicly about her Christian faith for some time and took to Instagram to prayerfully reflect about some of her parenting goals for 2016.

"Time flies by so fast in the midst of the blissful chaos of parenting. This year I'm learning to soak in every sweet moment and take a picture of it with my mind," she wrote. "Lord, thank you for the lil blessings you've given to me. Help me raise them according to your word and your glory. I'm so grateful for them and the family you've given me."

The actress knows firsthand just how much prayer can impact things in her daughter's life and revealed that one of her prayers concerning the infant has already come true.

"You have to watch what you pray for!" Mowry-Housley told People. "Ariah's a big girl, but I love the fatness. I love to show off her rolls and I dress her in rompers for summer. She has the chubbiest legs!"

After naming their daughter Ariah, the Housleys realized they had given her a faith-based name.

"It wasn't until after we had decided on Ariah Talea Housley that Adam and I learned the origin and meaning of both names — they couldn't be more appropriate for a family like ours whose faith is so very strong," Mowry-Housley previously wrote on her website.  "Both Hebrew names, Ariah means Lion of God and Talea means one who resembles the morning dew of Heaven. We couldn't have found names with a better meaning if we had tried."

Ariah was born at 2:54 p.m. on July 1, 2015 with a weight of 10 pounds, 2 ounces and 20.5 inches, according to People magazine. She joins 2 ½ year old son, Aden John Tanner Housley, as a member of the family.

The pair first spoke to People about how blessed they felt to welcome their second healthy child into the world.

"We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl. Aden already made a welcome video for her," the Housleys said in a statement.
