Prayer 475- Mother's Day
O Lord, we thank You for love made manifest in relationship with you and each other. As our Mother, You have created us and nurtured us, O God, and made us a home in your household. We thank you for mothers, and for all the women who have mothered us.
We thank You for mothers who have tended to our pains and soothed our fears.
We thank You for mothers who have sacrificed to make us who we are.
We thank You for mothers who love us even when they don't understand us.
We thank You for mothers who have answered a thousand questions with patience and humor.
We thank You for mothers who have done the best they could with little, to make us the best we can possibly be.
Help us to always treasure our mothers and those who love us, and never take for granted all that our mothers do for us.
Hear our dreams, prayers, and wishes, our fears and our concerns, O Loving One, and draw within your embrace those we name.
