A Prayer for Mothers
We Praise You and we thank You for the gift of our mothers, through whom You give us life and through whom we experience love. We thank You for Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, a mother so gracious and a woman of example in motherhood for all of us.
Psalm 127 : 3 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward”
Lord Jesus Christ, we pray and we lift up all mothers today, believers and non believers alike in Your name. Motherhood is a beautiful journey, caring and nurturing a life from God and seeing it grow into a part of humanity. We pray that mothers today everywhere do take a moment to think of this beautiful and gracious gift from God in their livelihood.
Proverbs 31:25- 27 “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness”
We thank our mothers and we thank them for all the pain, suffering and commitment in raising us as children. We thank them for the sacrifice of their time, pleasures and interest to give us a life of contentment. We pray Lord that they are highly favoured and in Your heart of Grace they have a wonderful place in existence.
Lord Jesus, we pray for those who are separated from their children. You know the heart of mothers and how they are connected to their children in mind, body and blood. Whether they are near or apart, a mother never forgets her child and she always prays for the safety and well being of her child. May they continue in prayer as they lift up their concerns and hurts of heart and seek for You Lord to be their children’s guide. In Your perfect timing and in Your will, may forgiveness and reconciliation be part of their life and in joy unite with their children and savour motherhood to the fullest.
We pray for those who have lost their way as mothers. Help them remember that there’s always time to turn back and become a better person in life. Their old bitter and bad ways could be left at Your feet and in Your love and forgiveness they are a new being. Help them believe that though situations and circumstances may not be fit, they can make a difference and change if only they believe.
May our prayer warm the hearts of all mothers today. May they know that they are loved and precious. May they know they are worthy in their call. May they know that there’s no failing so great that cannot be forgiven, forgotten and renewed in You Lord Jesus. May mothers today all over the world feel in their heart the joys of being called a mother and in all their goodness and all their failings, be blessed in Your love and forgiveness. We pray in Grace they belong close to You Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
