Today we pray for mothers to know love and joy.
And for orphans, comfort.
For not-yet mothers, hope.
For single mothers, grace.
And for those who are lonely, family.
We pray grace today
For the mothers of prodigals,
For those who’ve lost children,
And for those who don’t know where their children are.
May the embrace of grace displace shame
For mums in prison,
For those who can’t feed a baby,
For those who miscarried,
And those who had an abortion.
May those who never held their own child,
For whom today is sadder than it is happy,
Know the joy of parenting sons and daughters
Within the family of God.
