Shree Skanda Mata Devi
holds you in her lap and provides

The fifth form of Durga is known as Skandamata. As Devi Durga is the mother of Ganesha and Skanda (more known as Muruga or Kartikeya), She is referred to as ‘Skandamata’. She is fair, has four arms, holds her son Skanda in her lap and is mounted on a lion. 
Skandamata is the Mother who gives the power to vanquish all negativity. By holding Muruga, She is not only holding Him, She is holding all of us. 

If we sincerely – like a child - ask Her to let us sit in Her lap, She will also hold us and do everything for us.
