Mothers' Day Prayers - Collection

Mothers’ Day Prayers

1)    Every Mother's Prayer

I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

I pray she finds your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where you are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her with your grace
Give her faith so she'll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

2)    A blessing and prayer tribute to all mothers

"Blessed be all mothers
Who have come into our lives
Whose kindness, care and loving
Remain with us to guide.

Your inspiration in us
Made us strive in every way
Especially to remember
Helping others makes our day.

Mothers, this little tribute
Flows directly from my heart
You are so loved and cherished
Invaluable, one and all, you are.

as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so you watch over your Church.

Mother's Day Prayer

I love you, Mom. I love your aliveness,
your joy in living, your understanding,
your giving.
And what I love best of all
is that you love me.
God of all Mothers,
thank you for my mom!
- by Gaynell Bordes Cronin
From the book Friend Jesus: Prayers for Children

Most Gracious Heavenly Father,

We thank You for our mothers to whom You have entrusted the care of every precious human life from its very beginning in the womb.

You have given to woman the capacity of participating with You in the creation of new life. Grant that every woman may come to understand the full meaning of that blessing, which gives her an unlimited capacity for selfless love for every child she may be privileged to bear, and for all Your children.

Watch over every mother who is with child, strengthen her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and for her unborn baby. Give her courage in times of fear or pain, understanding in times of uncertainty and doubt, and hope in times of trouble. Grant her joy in the birth of her child.

To mothers You have given the great privilege and responsibility of being a child's first teacher and spiritual guide. Grant that all mothers may worthily foster the faith of their children, following the example of Mary, Elizabeth, and other holy women who follow Christ. Help mothers to grow daily in knowledge and understanding of Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and grant them the wisdom to impart this knowledge faithfully to their children, and to all who depend upon them.

Assist all "spiritual mothers", those who, though they may have no children of their own, nevertheless selflessly care for the children of others -- of every age and state in life. Grant that they may know the joy of fulfilling this motherly calling of women, whether in teaching, nursing, religious life, or in other work which recognizes and fosters the true dignity of every human being created in Your image and likeness.

We beseech You to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to all mothers who sorrow for children that have died, are ill or estranged from their families, or who are in trouble or danger of any kind. Help grieving mothers to rely on Your tender mercy and fatherly love for all your children.

We ask your blessing on all those to whom You have entrusted motherhood. May Your Holy Spirit constantly inspire and strengthen them. May they ever follow the example of Mary, mother of Our Lord, and imitate her fidelity, her humility, and her self-giving love. May all mothers receive Your Grace abundantly in this earthly life, and may they look forward to eternal joy in Your presence in the life to come.

We ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

7)    “A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts”. --Washington Irving

8)    Mothers have a special way
Of saying ‘I love you’
A love that God has given them
A love that will hold true
For Mothers sacrifice so much
Providing for the home
Creating there an atmosphere
That reflects God's love alone.

I just want to thank the Lord
For a Mother such as you
You were there throughout the years
Whatever I went through
And I just want to say that I
Love you so very much
And am praying that the Lord
Will shower you in love.

I am praying to the Lord
That He will bless your day
And that you’d find a quietness
When to Him you come to pray
I pray you’d know how much you’ve meant
To me through all these years
For you have been there on your knees
Sometimes with bitter tears
God has seen your Mother heart
And answered your heart pleas
And Mum because of your strong faith
I also now believe.

May God bless all the Mothers
That give of themselves
And tend to their household needs
Before the needs of ‘self’
For they are there with comfort
For each child’s broken heart
Bringing them to God in prayer
With His love to impart.

Mum I just want to say
How much you mean to me
And how I do appreciate
Everything you’ve done for me
I pray that God will bless you
In an even greater way
And that His presence will be with you
Especially more today.

May God’s blessings be on you
Today and every day
For you have more than been a blessing
And shown others the way
I just want you to know today
How much you’ve really meant
And that I love you very much
A Mother heaven sent.

We pray you’ll know God’s love
More abundant in your life
And know how much you’re valued
As a Mother and a wife
We want so much for you to know
We’ve appreciated you
And pray you’ll have a wonderful day
In all that you may do

May God’s many blessings
Be yours forever more
And may you know you’re valued
And loved by the Lord
Especially on this day
That we have set aside
To show our appreciation
To the Mothers in our lives

We pray that God would touch you
And fill your life afresh
With His grace and mercy
So you’ll know that you are blessed
For you deserve some time out
To relax in God’s love
And reflect on Him with thankfulness
For His blessings from above

We pray that on this mother’s day
You’ll have some time for ‘You’
To be able to do those special things
You’ve always wanted to
We pray you’ll feel the closeness
Of the Lord God above
And know how much you’re thought of
And how much that you’re loved

© By M.S.Lowndes

May you know the love of God
More and more each day
And know how much He values you
In every little way
Today we want to let you know
We appreciate what you do
And we want you to know that we
Are thinking now of you

© By M.S.Lowndes

I just want to let you know
How much that I love you
As a Mother and a Grandmother
You’ve shown what love can do
For you are a true example
Of how a Mother should be
Demonstrating a Godly faith
That you’ve passed down to me
