A Prayer of Thanks for Mothers

Dear God,

We come before You today with hearts full of gratitude for the mothers in our lives. We thank You for their love, their care, and their selfless dedication to their families.

We pray that You would bless them and fill them with Your joy and peace. May they find strength in You to face each day with courage and grace. May they know that they are loved and appreciated, not just by their families, but by You as well.

We ask that You would give them wisdom to make good decisions and lead their families with love and compassion. We pray that You would use their influence to point their children to You and to the hope and salvation found in Jesus.

We give You thanks for the gift of motherhood and for the love and blessings that mothers bring to our lives. All of this we pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
