Our Father in heaven, we thank you for our Mothers, this Mother’s Day. Thank you for their love, care and self-sacrifice of service for our sake because of their love.
Gracious God, we’ve heard from your word this year in Genesis 3, that because of sin entering the world – there is no pain in childbearing. And so we pray for those with pain this Mother’s Day, be it physical or emotional pain.
Show your grace to those who have lost their mothers. Please show your grace to those who would like to be mothers but for some reason cannot be. And show your grace to those who may have had a troubled relationship with their mother.
We pray that you would care for those in the various circumstances that people find themselves in when it comes to our mothers.
We give thanks for our mothers, who have brought us into the world. And we thank you that Jesus was born into the world so that no matter our circumstances, we may be born again, have a fresh start, and know your love for us.
We pray in the name of the One who has adopted us all into a new family, forever, in Jesus name, amen.
