A Mother’s Prayer
It’s such a hectic day
with little time to stop and pray.
For life’s been anything but calm,
since You called me to be a Mom.
Running errands, matching socks,
building dreams with stacking blocks.
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes and
other things that children lose.
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week’s mail to read,
where’s the quiet time I need?
Yet, when I steal a moment Lord,
at the sink or ironing board,
to ask the blessing of Your grace,
I see then, in my little one’s face,
that You have blessed me all the while.
And I stoop to kiss that precious smile.
I Said a Mother’s Prayer for You
I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you’ve shown me through the years,
for the closeness we’ve enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you’ve done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!
A Mother’s Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, to you I pray…
On this day called, “Mother’s Day.”
Let all mother’s on earth give praise,
To you…for the children that you gave.
For you have blessed them from above,
with little souls to nourish and love.
Let them mold each one with care…
And teach them to be kind and share.
Forgiveness is the special key…
Start early on, to help them see.
Their fragile minds are easily impressed.
Please teach them ways, so they’ll be blessed.
Sow godly seeds into their minds.
With careful pruning, you will find…
Young adults with such strong roots,
all through life, will bear rich fruit.
And then have faith for God to show…
Them all the rest they have to know.
Remember they’re His children too.
For they were only lent to you.
A Prayer for New Mothers
God our Creator, we pray:
for new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for those who are tired, stressed or depressed;
for those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;
for those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for those whose children have physical, mental or emotional disabilities;
for those who have children they do not want;
for those who raise children on their own;
for those who have lost a child;
for those who care for the children of others;
for those whose children have left home;
and for those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled.
Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children to know and do what is good,
living not for themselves alone, but for God and for others.
Mother’s Day Prayer
Lord, thank you for all mothers.
For the new ones, who endure sleepless nights with infants in arms.
For the busy ones, who juggle the pressures of home and family life.
For the steadfast ones, who nurture and care for our special vulnerable children.
For the patient ones, who always seek to forgive and engage with their pre-teens.
For the persistent ones, who cleverly find new ways to connect with their mini-adults.
For the mother aunts, who step in to cradle and care for nieces and nephews.
For all grandmas, who love and support their precious grandchildren.
For the foster mums that are called to gather and cover the fragile ones.
For the Sunday mums who care for our children and lead them in faith.
For the mums who give far beyond their own resources, who overcome disability to cherish and love.
Thank you Lord for all our beautiful mothers. Help us to support them and keep them in our prayers. May you bless them now on this their special day.
Funny Mother’s Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity to keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I’m pretty sure I’ll lose my mind.
I pray I find a little quiet
Far away from my family’s riot.
May I lie back and not have to think
about what they’re stuffing down the sink.
Or who they’re with, or where they’re at,
or what they’re doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself
(did I just hear something fall off the shelf?)
A silent moment for Goodness sake
(was that the window I just heard break!)
Yes now I lay me down to sleep
I pray my wits about me keep
But as I look around I know,
I must’ve lost them long ago.
Your Mother is Always with You
She’s the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street, she’s the
smell of certain foods you remember,
flowers you pick, the fragrance of life
itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow
when you’re not feeling well, she’s your
breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.
She is the sound of the rain that lulls
you to sleep, the colours of a rainbow,
she is Christmas morning. Your mother
lives inside your laughter. She’s the
place you came from, your first home,
and she’s the map you follow with every
step you take. She’s your first love, your
first friend, even your first enemy, but
nothing on earth can separate you. Not
time, not space… not even death.
