My child, obey your father’s godly instruction and follow your mother’s life-giving teaching. Fill your heart with their advice and let your life be shaped by what they’ve taught you. Their wisdom will guide you wherever you go and keep you from bringing harm to yourself. Their instruction will whisper to you at every sunrise and direct you through a brand new day. – Proverbs 6:20-22 (The Passion Translation)
Lord God Almighty I come before you today to praise You. Indeed you are the God who started motherhood by giving us Eve through whom all mankind came to this earth. God you are a really caring God so You showed it through mothers and other women. God you love us so much and gave us mothers to show us how to be loved. Thank you, thank You so much my Lord God.
Lord we have set today aside to remember the love, devotion and sacrifice of mothers all over the world from the smallest hamlet to the largest mansion. Lord once more we thank you for mothers and motherhood. We owe so much to the hand which rocked the cradle and guided us through life. We also thank you that you have provided mothers in different situations in life so that they have come to us in various shapes from natural mothers to adopted mothers. Lord we thank you for mothers who have gone on before us, we pray that you continue to keep and bless all those who play the role of mothers in our lives. May you also help those who have struggled with this responsibility and have not lived up to it to do better. Amen (5/14/17)
