A Mother’s Day Prayer

A Prayer for Mothers

Today we pray for moms

We pray for the moms who bake cupcakes, wait in car lines, pack lunches, juggle sports schedules and preside over petty playground squabbles.

We pray for the moms who struggle to feed their children, worry for their safety and hope for a better tomorrow.

We pray for the moms who give up their children and the moms who lovingly make those children their own

We pray for the moms who stay at home and those who also work outside the home. May they all be excellent jugglers with infinite amounts of patience.

We pray for moms who wonder what they could have done differently and those who know exactly what they should have done differently

We pray for the moms who have lost their children and children who have lost their mothers

We pray for reconciliation for moms who are estranged from their children

Today, we thank God for moms

Thank you for moms who hug and encourage and guide us along our way

Thank you for moms who keep us from doing something stupid or dangerous or insane—even when it makes us angry

Thank you for moms who have paved the way for future generations of women

Thank you for moms who have raised men and women who make a difference every day.

Thank you for all women who have acted as a mother to us over the years when we needed them the most

Thank God for moms. Amen.
