A Mother’s Day Prayer
God of our Mothers,
We come offering our thanks for life, love and mothers.
Through Eve, You give us the gift of life
Through Sarah, You bless every nation
Through prophets, preachers, and pastors: Huldah, Joanna, and Priscilla- You speak!
Through Mary you gave us the Perfect Revelation of Your love and grace
Let us listen as Wisdom cries out to her children
God of our Mothers, we come remembering
Oh God of our Mothers, let us walk as the Holy women of old
With Miriam let us dance and sing of your deliverance
With Ruth and Naomi let us celebrate the bonds of kinship
With Deborah let us honor those who lead and defend
With Huldah let us discern Your truth
With Hannah let us comfort all who long for children
With Mary let us weep with all whose children suffer
With Anna Your prophet, let us watch and pray for the worlds’ redemption
With Mary let us be your handmaiden- may we rejoice in Your Love
With Martha let us serve!
With Magdalene, Joanna, and Salome let us preach Your Good News
With Lois and Eunice let us pass to the generations a deep and abiding faith. Amen.
