Prayer For Mothers

Heavenly Father, I kneel before You grieved in my spirit and with deep pain in my heart, due to the loss of my son, whom I loved so dearly and who has been taken from me so cruelly.

Father I know that he is in Your presence now, but I have been left with a gaping hole in my life that is hard to express and impossible to explain.. and yet I know that You grieved over the death of Your dearly beloved Son, Who gave His life as a ransom for others so that we might believe in Him and be given life everlasting and in my heart I know that there is no-one who understand the loss of a son like You and there is no one who can comfort the heart of those that are grieving more than our heavenly Father for You are the God of all comforts, Who comforts us in all our afflictions and pain.

Lord I know that there are others also who are going through this same, deep sadness and loss of their sons too, and I want to lift each and every one up to You and pray that You would comfort every mother and father who has had to go through the devastating loss of their son.

Thank You that Your grace and pity is beyond our understanding and that Your peace can calm each aching heart and still the troubled mind of all who are grieving.. and we pray that in a wonderful way You would meet the needs of each one at this time of loss, and draw them into a closer walk with Yourself - this I ask in the name of Your own, dearly beloved Son Jesus Christ my Lord,


Heavenly Father, we praise You and we thank You for the gift of our mothers, through whom You give us life and through whom we experience love.

We thank You for Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, a mother so gracious and a woman of example in motherhood for all of us.

Lord Jesus Christ, we pray and we lift up all mothers today, believers and non believers alike in Your name. Motherhood is a beautiful journey, caring and nurturing a life from God and seeing it grow into a part of humanity.

We pray that mothers today everywhere do take a moment to think of this beautiful and gracious gift from God in their livelihood.

We thank our mothers, giving thanks for all the pain, suffering and commitment in raising us as children. We thank them for the sacrifice of their time, pleasures and interest to give us a life of contentment.

Heavenly Father, we pray that they are highly favored and, in Your heart of Grace, they have a wonderful place in existence.

To the Moms who are struggling, to those filled with incandescent joy.
To the Moms who are remembering children who have died, and pregnancies that miscarried.
To the Moms who decided other parents were the best choice for their babies, to the Moms who adopted those kids and loved them fierce.
To those experiencing frustration or desperation in infertility.
To those who knew they never wanted kids, and the ways they have contributed to our shared world.
To those who mothered colleagues, mentees, neighborhood kids, and anyone who needed it.
To those remembering Moms no longer with us.
To those moving forward from Moms who did not show love, or hurt those they should have cared for.
Today is a day to honor the unyielding love and care for others we call 'Motherhood,' wherever we have found it and in whatever ways we have found to cultivate it within ourselves.

I said a Mother's Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you've shown me through the years,
for the closeness we've enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you've done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!

There are times when only a mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.
There are times when only a mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.
For a mother's heart and a mother's faith
And a mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the angels
And sent from God above.

Good and Gentle God,
we pray in gratitude for our mothers and for all the women of theory who have joined with you in the wonder of bringing forth new life. You who became human through a woman, grant to all mothers the courage they need to face the uncertain future that life with children always brings.
Give them the strength to live and to be loved in return, not perfectly, but humanly.
Give them the faithful support of husband, family and friends as they care for the physical and spiritual growth of their children.
Give them joy and delight in their children to sustain them through the trials of motherhood. Most of all, give them the wisdom to turn to you for help when they need it most.

Loving heavenly Father, You were the one who created mothers to be the one that bring children into the world.. but through the introduction of sin there is often suffering and pain at childbirth but we know all to often there is much more pain and suffering ahead, as the children they bear, change from the sweetness of infancy and the fun of childhood into rebellious teens.. and adult children that cause their parents much additional pain and heartache.
We lift up all those who have had to watch helplessly as their child has become rebellions and disobedient.. or has become attracted to the wrong company; been involved with addictive behaviours or engaged in some other destructive conduct. And we also know that many mothers have had to watch helplessly as their child has been overtaken with some incurable disease or been killed by a freak accident or some unknown cause.
Lord, we lift up this group of mothers whose children have caused them to go through so much suffering and pain for whatever reason, and we pray that You would touch their hurt and heal their hearts. Bring back the prodigal; heal the sick; help the afflicted; deliver the needy; comfort the hurting heart and give them hope we pray.
Lord there is probably not mother that has never had to suffer pain through the children they have bourn and so today we lift up all suffering mothers, and pray that You would draw near to each one and make this a day when many mothers discover a peace that only comes from You as they draw closer to Jesus, in Whose name we pray,

Loving Lord, what a joy to have twin babies and we praise You for both these little lives. We lift up their mother and her precious duo in prayer and ask that Your grace and blessing would be poured out on them all in rich abundance.
Lord it is a double blessing to have two babies, and we praise and thank Your for the joy that these twins have brought to their parents and to all their wider family and friends. We pray that You would care for them and protect them throughout their lives and keep them free from all danger and harm.
Father how we thank You for the lives of these little twins they are a blessing from above and the work of Your hands and we pray that they will be brought-up to know and love the Lord Jesus and to come to trust Him as their Saviour.
We ask that You would give strength and grace to their Mom as she prepares to adapt her life and routine to care for these two little ones. We pray that You would uphold her with Your righteous right hand, equip her with the wisdom and understanding, and provide her with the sufficient grace and patience to gently teach and train the precious twins in the way they should go in Jesus name we pray,
