A Christian Mother’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,

On this special day, we lift up all Christian mothers, past, present, and future. We thank You for the gift of motherhood, and for entrusting these precious lives to the care of these women.

We ask that You give these mothers strength and wisdom as they navigate the joys and challenges of raising their children in Your love and truth. May they be patient and kind, and may they always seek to model for their children the selfless love that You have shown us through Your son Jesus.

We pray that You would bless these mothers with joy and peace, and that You would surround them with Your love and grace. Help them to trust in You and to lean on You in all things, knowing that You are with them always.

We pray that You would bless their families and bring them closer together in love and unity. May their homes be filled with Your presence and Your peace.

We ask all of these things in the precious name of Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Titus 2:3-5 ESV

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
