Blessed Father God, we thank You this day for mother's that You have uniquely designed in wisdom for children. We recall that Jesus' mother was called, "highly favored and blessed," and we desire to convey to our own Mom on this day that she is also exactly that to us.
Whether it is a birth mother, an adopted mother, a step-mother, a spiritual mother, or a family member that stepped in to raise us, we thank You that You have placed that special one in our life.
May You, O Lord, propel us beyond the prayers today to action in displaying our gratitude for Mom.
May we be mindful of the many sacrifices she made to see that we were taken care of throughout our formative years.
May we be grateful that she went the distance to continue to fulfill our well-being needs as we grew.
May we treat her as blessed on more than this occasion today.
May we understand her as she has understood us.
May she know that she did her very best in guiding us to the point that we are now at.
May she be comforted in the knowledge that she produced a child who is now a responsible and decent person.
May You, O Lord bless and keep this special Mom under the shadow of Your wings.
Might she always rejoice in the knowledge that she was chosen by You for the highest calling in womanhood, and that to be a wonderful Mom to me. We pray for her, through Jesus Christ, who honored and elevated the role of women. Amen
