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.
