Today, we pray for our mothers
Lord Jesus, on this day we bring to You our mothers and mother figures – those precious women who carried us in their wombs, nurtured us, prayed for us, corrected us and loved us, even while punishing us. May her every tear, prayer be answered by You, Almighty God, especially the ones for her family. Help us women become good Christian mothers who put you first and family second. Lord Jesus, help us mums become more like Mother Mary and Saint Anne. May we love and honour our own mothers who brought us painfully into this world, until that last breath leaves our nostrils. A special prayer for the motherless and the childless – that all the saints in heaven will comfort them today. Amen.
