A MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER
Loving God, we know your love
because we have mothers.
We thank you for the mothers who
carried us in their wombs,
nourishing, protecting and
bringing us into the world.
We thank you for the mother
who did not give birth to us,
yet loved us just the same.
With gratitude we remember their
words of encouragement when we
have felt unsure or afraid;
we thank you for their kindness when
the world has treated us unkindly;
we thank you for their soft,
comforting arms and the gentle way they
kissed away our tears;
we thank you that they protected us with
the fierceness of a lioness protecting her cubs;
we thank you for the times when they
corrected us rather than
letting us continue down wrong paths.
Help us to live so that their investment in us might not be in vain.
We honor our mothers with lives
of service to you
In the name of the Risen Christ,
for it is in his Name we pray. Amen.
