Prayer for Mother’s Day

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today as a mother, humbly seeking Your guidance and protection for my children. I know that You have entrusted them to my care and that it is my duty to raise them in a way that honors You.

Help me to be patient and loving, even when my children test my limits. Give me the strength and wisdom to discipline them in a way that is fair and loving.

Please surround my children with Your love and protection. Keep them safe from harm and temptation. Help them to grow in their faith and to develop a close relationship with You.

I pray that You would use my children for Your glory and that they would be a light to those around them.

Thank You, Lord, for the blessing of motherhood. Help me to always remember that my children are a gift from You and that it is a privilege to raise them for You.

In Your precious name I pray, Amen.
