Heavenly Father, we thank You for our mothers who untiringly love and care for us with every passing day, but today Lord, on this important “Mother’s Day”, we specially want to lift up all mothers throughout the land. Thank You for the very special role they play in the lives of their children.
Thank You for the selfless love they so often show and for the grace and encouragement they are able to give us, as well as their correction, wisdom and counsel. Thank Your for the role model they so often provide to us and to others, and for the many sacrifices they willingly make on account of their children and families.
We pray that the influence that they exercise over their children would be godly wisdom, seasoned with salt and bathed in prayer. We pray that You would provide the necessary health and strength they need to care for their families in their demanding task, and that You would grant each one multiplied grace, as they seek to carry out the many roles and responsibilities each within their own homes. This we ask in Jesus' name,
