Happy Mother’s Day to you mothers out there. You deserve more than one day of fawning over you. My wife (and mother of my 3 children) deserves a medal not just for her parenting but putting up with me. Jen, you’re the best!
Now, some people aren’t having Happy Mother’s Days today for a variety of reasons. I found this prayer, copied it, and now can’t remember where I got it. But I did not write it. Pray this today:
For the married women who desire to have children and cannot. Also, for the single women who desire children yet are getting weary waiting on a spouse. God understands your situation and we care. “In the name of Jesus, we ask that the Holy Spirit will comfort your heart and give you peace and that our Father God would grant you your petition.” (1 Samuel 1:2-17)
For the single mom. God understands your challenge and we care. “In the name of Jesus, we ask that the grace of God will sustain you, the wisdom of God lead you, the love of God encompass you, and the provisions of God overtake you.” (Philipians 4:13)
For the moms with a child who has chosen a destructive lifestyle and is in a physical or spiritual prison. God understands your concern and we care. “In the name of Jesus, we ask that the Holy Spirit would convict them of sin. We ask for the perfect laborers to cross their path. We thank God for their salvation, deliverance and restoration.” (Proverbs 11:21)
For all the moms who experience grief on Mother’s Day because of miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, or a child’s death outside the womb. For all those men and women who experience grief on Mother’s Day because of the loss of their mom. God understands and we care. “In the name of J. we ask that the Holy Spirit will comfort your hearts and give you peace. Jesus bore your grief so you don’t have to. Jesus, we Thank You for removing the grief and healing the heart.” (Isaiah 53:4)
In the name of Jesus we pray for all of our mothers on Mother’s Day. May God our Father bless you and strengthen you and encourage you. May your eyes be opened that you and others may see that your price is far above rubies and may your children rise up and call you blessed.” (Proverbs 31:10-31)
