A Mother’s Day Prayer

Lord, God; Mothers come in many different forms, and today we celebrate them all!

Everyone here is either a son or a daughter.
Thank you God for my mother!

For those women who have joined God in Heaven and whom we miss dearly here on earth. 
Thank you God for the mothers of the past.

For every woman who is working day and night to raise her children right now.
Thank you God for the mothers of today.

For all the women who are expecting, but aren’t quite mothers yet!
Thank you God for the soon-to-be-mothers.

For the women who took in others’ children through adoption and foster care.
Thank you God for the mothers with hearts so big.

For those women who have lost a child to death and must carry on.
Thank you God for the mothers who are so strong.

For all the women who have desperately wanted to have children of their own, but instead have become mothers to everyone else.
Thank you God for the mothers in spirit.

We thank you, Lord, for the women who have influenced our lives in so many ways. We pray that we will honor them in everything we do. 
Amen.
