As we approach Mother’s Day, I wanted to find a prayer that could truly honor my Mom, and all the Mom’s out there. This one struck a note with me, and I invite you to pray it on behalf of your Mom, too.
A Mother’s Day Prayer
I thank you, Creator of us all, for my mother.
I thank you that she gave me life and nurtured me all those years.
She gave me my faith, helping me to know you and to know Jesus and his ways.
She taught me how to love, and how to sacrifice for others.
She taught me that it was okay to cry and that I should always tell the truth.
Bless her with the graces she needs and which you want to give her today.
Help her to feel precious in your eyes today and to know that I love her.
Give her strength and courage, compassion and peace.
Bless her this day with your love.
