Gracious Heavenly Father, on this day we thank you for the gift of life you gave us through our mothers. We thank you for providing them to love us, care for us, and share Your word with us. Bless mothers everywhere with love, patience, wisdom, understanding, and strength so that they can raise their children to love and honor You.
On this Mother’s Day, some people yearn for their mothers who have died. Others hearts are broken because they have wanted to have children, but have not been able or because of the loss of a child. Give them strength to focus on You, keeping You first in their hearts. Your love alone can satisfy all their longings. Be with them and comfort them.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
(Prayer by Pastor Matthew Moldstad)
