Mother’s Day

At  church yesterday, there was this prayer in the bulletin.  I thought it was nice so I am sharing with you.

Expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;

New mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility;

Mothers who are tired, stressed, or depressed;

Mothers who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;

Mothers who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;

Mothers who children have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities;

Mothers who have children they do not want and those suffering the results of a miscarriage;

Mothers who raise children on their own;

Mothers who have lost a child;

Those who “mother”the children of others;

Mothers whose children have left home;

And for those whose desire to be a mother has not fulfilled.
