Heavenly Father, on this Mother’s Day, we thank You for our mothers through whom Your gift of life begins and through whom we are nurtured into great human beings.
We lift up all mothers to Your love and care. We pray for them, for their needs of strength and support to continue to nurture a family of love, in honor and love for You, our God.
Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon Your blessed name to bless all mothers today and every day. Extend Your hands of grace over them.
Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God will give you.
We acknowledge that it’s hard, conscientious work and effort and we ask You, Lord, to bless them for all their contributions toward family life and it’s growth.
Grant that they may be joyous in their ordeal of being a mother and proud in raising the family You gave gifted.
Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.
Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
Mothers who are ill or have been led astray
Oh Lord, we earnestly pray for those in illness, grant them Your healing and restoration, for those who are abused and abandoned, that You grant them healing of their hearts and mind and that they are restored in hope for a better future.
We also pray for mothers who have been led astray into bad and sinful habits, grant them Lord Your forgiveness, relief and deliverance from their captivity of evil.
Ephesians 6:1-3 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise – “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Praying for single mothers on Mother’s day
Lord Jesus, it’s not easy for a mother, especially if she is single. Even more so, if she was disabled or affected by a major illness. We lift up these mothers today that in You they may find light and hope for a better future.
Bless them with the fruits of the Holy Spirit, to become women of God overcoming the troubles of life in perseverance.
Let them stand proud and tall of their achievements, of the families they have raised and above all, women of excellence who have gained Your favor in fear and obedience. AMEN!
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She is clothed with strength and dignity. She can laugh at the days to come.
With wisdom, she speaks. Faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting. But, a woman, who fears the LORD, is to be praised.
