A Prayer for Mothers’ Day 2017

Mothers’ Day Prayer
Almighty God our heavenly Father,
of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
whose beloved Son did share and enjoy
the blessings of an earthly home in Nazareth:
Bless, we beseech you, the homes of our nation
and especially this day hear our prayers for mothers everywhere,
that they may grow in Christian love and understanding;
pour down on them all the riches of your grace
that they may reflect and share the true and pure love of God
to their children and families;
to the honor and glory of your Holy Name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
