A Prayer for Mothers

We thank you Lord for the great gift of motherhood.
It is within our mother’s womb, that we began life.
It is in her embrace that we have known safety and comfort.
It is through her encouragement that we grow and mature.

Lord, bless our mothers.
Draw close to them and hear their prayers for their children.
Give them the grace of surrendered love –
a love that images the love of our heavenly mother, Mary.

May all mothers find daily
the strength to love generously,
the patience to endure graciously,
and the grace to live their vocation of motherhood joyously.

We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ,
