There are those anticipating the birth of their first child, step-moms wondering what their place is, those who have lost their mother and are faced with grieving on Mother’s Day, there are moms who encounter feelings of hurt because their children have turned from God, and those overwhelmed with pain from loss of a child. No matter what you face this Mother’s Day, you can turn to God and experience peace and healing through prays.
Let’s Pray: Dear Father, we approach your throne on behalf of the mothers whom you have entrusted with the care of your most precious little ones. We thank you for creating each mom with a unique combination of gifts and talents. We thank you for the sacrifice of self each mom gives for her children.
We thank you for the gift of time moms give for their kids, whether it’s stay-at-home moms, working moms, and moms who have some combination of the two. I thank you for the flexibility of moms, for their tirelessness, their perseverance, and their devotion.
We Pray for single moms, who must lean solely on you for the fathering of their children. We thank you that you’re big arms surrounding children who may never know their earthly father. We also pray for mother who never had the honor of bearing children, but whose nurturing extends to the many poor and needy who crass the threshold of their lives.
In Jesus Name Amen.
