Mothers’ Day

Greetings to all our mothers who are preparing to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend. This is a wonderful time to honor our mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, adoptive mothers, mother-like figures in our lives, and guardians. We pray for eternal rest and a happy repose to all our mothers and grandmothers with whom we are united in Spirit during the joy of the Easter season. Special prayers for all our “mothers of desire”, those who have always wanted to share in the joy of childbirth but never received that blessing, and to those who lost children during pregnancy. May the Lord send his finest blessings on all our Mothers this weekend!

Prayer for Mothers

Thank you, Lord, that you fill a mother’s heart with love,
That you have instilled in her very being
the need to protect her children if at all possible,

Thank you for giving her the gift of nurturing her children,
of teaching them, of comforting them, 

for feeding them and making a safe place for them.
For guiding them to be all that God has created them to be.
Fill every mother with love, wisdom, and endurance,
with strength and patience and joy.
Give them the ability to forgive again and again.
Enable her to rely on You and call upon You
because You will give her all she needs.
In Your precious and all-powerful name. Amen
