today we pray for mothers--
our own mothers, and mothers everywhere,
who have made such a major contribution
to the good qualities we have.
Lord, please bless our mothers for their sacrifices on our behalf
as they often gave up or deferred their own dreams
so that we could have ours.
Most of all, Lord,
bless our mothers for their unconditional love,
for loving us no matter what.
Lord, please bless our mothers mightily.
Strengthen them, soothe them,
wrap them in Your infinite love
and shower them with blessings
too numerous to count, too magnificent to describe.
We love them, admire them, respect them,
and we pray that You would give them back
many times the good they gave to us.
In Jesus' name we pray; Amen.
