Mother’s Day Prayer

We conclude our PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 festivities with a little prayer in honor of mothers everywhere. Please pray through it with all your :

LOVING FATHER:

We pray for our mothers,
who cared for us
when we were helpless,

who comforted us
when we were hurt,

whose love and care
we usually took for granted,

as we often take
your love for granted.

God our Creator, we also pray:

for new mothers,
coming to terms
with new responsibility;

for expectant mothers,
wondering and waiting;

for those who are tired,
stressed or depressed;

for those who struggle to balance
the tasks of work and family;

for those who are unable
to feed their children due to poverty;

for those whose children have physical,
mental or emotional disabilities;

for those who have children
they do not want;

for those who raise children
on their own;

for those who have
lost a child;

for those who care
for the children of others;

for those whose children
have left home;

and for those whose desire
to be a mother has not been fulfilled.

Bless all mothers,
that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children
to know and do what is good,
living not for themselves alone,
but for God and for others.

AMEN
