Mother’s Day

A Prayer for Mother’s Day:

We pray for those who are mothers,
and for those preparing to become mothers;

We pray for mothers grieving lost children
and for those whose wombs ache with longing;

We pray for those grieving lost mothers,
and for those who never had a mother.

We pray for those who are separated from their mothers,
and for those with strained mother relationships.

We pray for step-mothers and mother figures,
and for spiritual mothers who show us the love of Jesus.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine on you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” (Num 6:24-26)
