Oh God of our Mothers’
God of our Mothers,
We thank you for life, love and mothers.
Through Eve, You gave the gift of life
Through Sarah, You bless the nations
Through the prophet Huldah, the preacher Joanna, and pastor Priscilla- You speak!
Through Mary you gave us Jesus: the Perfect Revelation of Your love and grace
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 family
With Deborah let us lead and defend
With Hannah let us comfort
With Anna let us look Your Salvation
With Mary let us be your handmaiden-
With Martha let us serve
With Magdalene, Joanna, Salome, and Priscilla let us preach the Gospel
With Lois and Eunice let us pass the faith to the coming generations. Amen.
