Mothers Day Prayer

Devanthree Pillay created this prayer to honour mothers for their tireless work. It’s a great prayer to use on Mothers day at your church or school. We’d love to hear your feedback on this prayer.

Father God, thank you for all the mothers throughout the world.
Thank you for making them patient and kind and for the joy and closeness we share.
Thank you for making them women of discretion and virtue.
We are grateful for their words of encouragement and affirmation that makes us feel loved and valued.
For home-cooked meals and the care that went into preparing them.
For helping us with our homework, listening to our troubles and telling us what we need to hear and not always what we want to hear.
When they are stressed out from working hard at their jobs or in the home – refresh and revive their souls with your word.
Help them to remember that you are the source of their hope and their efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Even though they may have dishpan hands from washing dinner dishes, a few wisps of grey hair or their clothes are fitting more snugly these days, help them to realize that they are beautiful and that they are loved.
In Jesus name. Amen
