for mothers and those serving in mother-roles

For mothers, those who live in the role of mother, and those who love them…

Heavenly Father, we give thanks to You for mothers everywhere. We give thanks for their love, care, concern, and compassion. We lift up to You especially those who have struggled in their roles as mothers, where the path has not been smooth. We pray for those whose mothers perhaps failed in any way. Bring hope in the midst of their lives, whether as mothers or as children. For those relationships that are strained, grant reconciliation. Where there is pain, bring the healing of Your grace and mercy. For those who have not had their own children, but share their love in mothering roles that is invaluable to the Body of Christ, sustain them as they minister in Your kingdom. As we reflect may our own hearts of love extend to all mothers everywhere; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen
