Prayers for Mothers
we thank you for the love of the mothers you have given us,
Whose love is so precious that it can never be measured,
whose patience seems to have no end.
May we see your loving hand behind them and guiding them.
We pray for those mothers who fear
they will run out of love or time, or patience.
We ask you to bless them with your own special love.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord.
Blessing for Mother's Day
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so you watch over your Church.
Bless these women, that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor and appreciate them
with a spirit of profound respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
