I thank you for the gift of life. From You flows the source of all that is good and wonderful in this world. And today we celebrate this gift through our mother’s. In honoring them we pray that they would have faith, hope and love.
We pray their faith would be glorifying to God and grounded in the truth of Scripture. May they be like Mary and magnify the greatness of God (Luke 2:46).
We pray that they would be filled with love from above and below. May their families bring them honor, favor and blessing as Mary received comfort of her relatives and the early community of faith.
And lastly we pray for all women, whether a physical or spiritual mother, to multiply Your blessings to the next generation. May they realize the influence and impact they have in the kingdom through both mundane and magnificent works of service. May they help us all to see the beauty of selfless service and sacrifice, which is fully displayed for us all in the Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory!
