A Mother’s Day Prayer
When someone believes in us, when someone is in our corner, we feel strengthened. We feel encouraged. We feel confident. We believe we can make it, and we experience victory! When that someone is our Mother, we are even more joyfully confident.
Dear God, thank You so much for the gift of our Mothers. Thank You for their faith in us, their hopes for us, and their love for us. They mirror Mary’s love for Your Son Jesus, standing behind us in our hopes and dreams, as she supported Jesus, and standing next to us in our trials and struggles, as she stood by her Son at the cross. They rejoice with us in our successes, as Mary rejoiced with exceeding joy in her risen Son.
Through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary, we ask You to bless all Mothers with the gift of Your love this Mother’s Day. May each of them feel Your love in their hearts, Your peace in their minds, and Your joy in their spirits.
O Lord, we ask this in your Holy Name. Amen.
