A Prayer for all Mothers

Thank you, Lord, that you fill a mother’s heart with love,

That you have instilled in her very being the need to protect her children if at all possible.

Thank you for giving her the gift of nurturing her children,

of  teaching them, of comforting them,

for feeding them and making a safe place for them.

For guiding them to be all that God has created them to be.

Fill every mother with love, wisdom and endurance,

with strength, patience and joy.

Give them ability to forgive again and again.

Enable her to rely on You and call upon You,

because You will give her all she needs.

In your precious and all powerful name. Amen
