A Mother’s Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, on this Mothers Day, we thank You Father for our mothers through whom Your gift of life begins and nurtured into a human being. We lift up all mothers to Your love and care and 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 everyday and to extend Your hands of grace over them. 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.
O 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 be 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.
Lord Jesus, it’s not easy for a mother in her journey of family, especially if she is single, and 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. Through You be they blessed 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.
She speaks with wisdom, and 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.
