Happy Mothers Day

Prayer for Mothers

Loving creator, you called upon your servant Mary to bring your Son into the world. 

We give thanks for her, and for all mothers who bear witness to your love. 

Their generosity and strength have blessed generations.
Please bless our mothers. 

Ease their worry for the families you entrust to them, 

guide them in times of doubt, and hold them close when they are overwhelmed by both joy and sorrow. 

May they know our deep gratitude for giving us life and love.
In union with Mary, we ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.

For mothers who are no longer with us

God of tenderness, we honour all women who cooperate with you in bringing life to the world, and we remember especially those mothers who have passed from this life and now rest in eternal life with you. We offer gratitude for the gift of their lives and for the ways they blessed their children with life and love. Trusting in your deep love and providential care, we ask you to bring comfort and peace to all children, young or old, who mourn the loss of a mother. May your own mother, Mary, watch over these children and guide them with her tender care. Amen.
