A Mother’s Day Blessing for Mothers
A Mother’s Day Blessing for Mothers:
Bless, Oh Lord, mothers-to-be, who are about to bring new lives into the world, blessed children, your gifts from heaven. Be the strength of their strength and at birth protect both mother and child from all harm. Bless all mothers as they continue to love, nurture, and nourish their children in all the many ways that children need to be cared for. We thank you for the strength of their love, which mothers must receive from heaven. There is no other explanation. Make them aware that you are always with them only a prayer away and that they can call upon you in any time of trouble, you will deliver them, and they will glorify you. We thank you as well for mothers who have fulfilled the full measure of their devotion and who now reside with you in heaven. We thank you for them and all the blessings which they bestowed upon us their children, blessings that we can never repay, but you O Lord, can reward abundantly for ever and ever and ever. Amen.
