Prayer4UKToday 11 Mar 18



Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name ‘Y@HOVAH RA’AH LORD our Shepherd Ps.23:1 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be Our done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

A Prayer of thanksgiving

As a mother protects her children, watching over them day by day,
alert to danger, and ready if necessary to sacrifice herself for their sakes,
so you Lord protect,
your arms constantly encircling us,
your hands delivering us from harm.

For the intensity of your love,
Lord Jesus we thank you.
Loving God, we thank you for mothers – for all they mean
or have meant,
for the love they have shown
and the care they have given.
We thank you for the qualities of mothers –
their patience,
their kindness,
concern and understanding.
We thank you for the part they play in our lives,
and we thank you for this day of saying ‘thank you’
this opportunity to say what we so often mean to say
but so rarely do.
For mothers and motherhood,
for children and families
we bring you this day our grateful praise.

Prayers for those for whom Mothering Sunday is a difficult time

Loving Father, we pray for those for whom Mothering Sunday is a time of heartache rather than celebration.
We pray for those who have never known their mother or whose mothers have died.
Heavenly Father, bless them with your love

We pray for those who long to be mothers but as yet have not had their own children.
Heavenly Father, bless them with your love

We pray for those who struggle with the way their children have chosen to live their lives.
Heavenly Father, bless them with your love

We pray for those who have a difficult relationship with their mother.
Heavenly Father, bless them with your love
May they have the comfort of knowing that your love for them is constant, your understanding is perfect, your compassion is never-ending. Amen

Mothering Sunday Blessing

May the Lord who brought us to birth by his Spirit,
strengthen us for the Christian life.
May the Lord who provides for all our needs
sustain us day by day.
May the Lord whose steadfast love is constant as a mother's care,
send us out to live and work for others.
And the blessing of God Almighty.
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be with you and remain with you always. Amen.

Please pray and share with your intercessors, Bible Study Groups, Prayer Groups, Church Prayers, Men & Women’s Groups. Thank you
