Let Us Pray…
This coming Sunday is Mother’s Day. This day is celebrated as an opportunity to honour and remember all mothers.
MOTHERS’ DAY PRAYER
Loving God, we pray:
for our mothers and those who are a mother figure for us;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for new mothers and the responsibilities of motherhood;
for mothers who balance the tasks of work and family;
for mothers who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for mothers whose children are not well;
for mothers who raise children on their own;
for mothers who care for the children of others;
for mothers who have lost a child;
for mothers who bless the world with the tenderness of their touch and the tears of their joy;
for mothers living not for themselves alone, but for others;
Lord God, bless all mothers and the deep and tender love they give to their family and others.
Happy Mother’s Day.
