Happy Mothers' Day

Mothers' Day Prayer

God of Love, listen to this prayer.

God of holy people,
of Sarah, Ruth and Rebekah;
God of Elizabeth, mother of John,
God of Mary, mother of Jesus,
listen to us and bless the
mothers of our families.

Bless with the strength of your Spirit,
the mothers who taught us to stand and walk,
who continue to be strength for us
as we walk the journey of life.

Bless with the melody of your love,
those who showed us
how to speak,
how to sing,
how to pray to you.

Bless with a place
at your eternal table
those who fed and nurtured our life
as it was formed within them.

Bless our mothers today
with good things and with health;
with joy, love and laughter,
and surround them with many good friends.

May they be carried one day to your divine embrace:
there for all eternity to rejoice with their family and friends.

Hold gently in your love our mothers who are now with you.

This blessing and all graces, we pray,
descend upon the mothers of our families:
in the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
