Let us pray together on this Mothering Sunday
Dear God, thank you that you have comforted us as your children. You have led us with cords of kindness and bands of love. You have provided many good things for us and cared for us when we have had little. Thank you for being like a mother to us. Amen.
Lord, we thank you for the women you put in our lives who have cared for us. For mothers and carers of every type, aunties, grandmothers and the many women who helped raise us. Where we miss them may you comfort us. As we pray for each other, we recognise that sometimes mothers are not perfect like you. Where we are hurt, may you restore us. Amen.
We pray for children who are currently not with the mother figure or parents they need or are facing uncertainty and instability. Would you pour out your love, comfort and peace. Amen.
Help us to each follow the model of motherly love that you set in your Word and in our lives. May we reflect that goodness into the lives of all we meet. Amen.
