Dear Lord, you know the complex range of emotions on mothers day. It is a tender day, a reminder of the mother we’ve lost, the mother grieving the loss of their child or the aching for the unfulfilled role of mother – a role not yet held or one that may never be held. Dear Lord wrap your arms around them, cover them with the knowledge of your faithfulness. You are their refuge and strength.

Dear Lord, thank you for the women in this church. whether we are mothers by definition or not. We give until it hurts and receive so much that we might break. We are always in ‘labour’, always loving, because there are people growing all around us and because of us. Lord, sustain us, remind us to kneel before you and receive our strength from you alone. We pray for our children as they watch and depend on us. Give our children hearts for you Lord Jesus, reveal yourself to them in powerful ways, that no matter how loud and broken the world is, let Joy live loud in our souls. I pray that we know we are your beloved, thank you Jesus … amen
