A Little Blessing for Mothers

A Prayer for Mothers

Lord and True Giver of Life,
We ask your blessings on the mothers of the World;

Mothers who are with us, and mothers who are no longer;

For those who have borne children, and for those who have opened their hearts to children borne of another woman’s body, known or unknown;

For those who wish for children, (for they are mothers also, as mothers themselves are born and not made) and for those that wish they had not;

For mothers of animals, both wild and tame;

For mothers who have borne children but cannot keep them;

For the numerous “other” mothers of our children -
teachers, scout leaders, coaches, pastors, doctors, and nuns;

For single mothers, step-mothers, and fathers who are both father and mother;

For tired mothers, depressed mothers, frustrated mothers, and cross mothers;

For radiant mothers, patient mothers, loving mothers and expectant mothers;

For mothers to one, and mothers to entire communities;

For grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and Godmothers;

We praise you for these strong, courageous, and loving women in our lives.
