Mother's Day

Sunday, May 13, 2018


Let us give thanks to all the Mothers on this special upcoming day: 

Let us pray for....


For every pregnant mother, who still cradles her little one safe inside,

For every mother of little ones, who never has a moment alone,

For every mother of grown ones, who misses the commotion and chauffeuring,

You are loved!


For every one who has stood beside a hospital bed, and for everyone who still tucks a child into bed at night,

For everyone who has brought a child to the baptismal font, and for everyone who has stood at a graveside,

For everyone who grieves from a miscarriage loss, and for everyone who rejoices in the gift of adoption,

You are loved!


For the one who is heartbroken by another negative pregnancy test,

and for the one who wonders how to feed another mouth,

For every grandmother raising her grandchildren, and for every young mother doing it on her own, 

For the single mom working two jobs and pinching pennies, and for the stay at home mom, who's counting the cost,

You are loved!


For every woman who longs for a child, 

For every woman who prays for a child, 

For every woman who loves a child,

You are loved!


For every woman who is single, and every woman who is married,

For every woman who prays for a child, with a child, and over a child,

For every woman, precious and beloved in God's sight,

You are loved!
