Short Prayer for Mother’s Day
Buying a gift or making a card for your mother is a good thing. Every mother will appreciate this, especially when they are gifted by small children. But the ultimate reward is time spent with your mother and a short prayer for a mother. Say short prayer not just for Mother’s Day but every day of the year. A short prayer will be welcomed by any mother and you mother really deserves it.
Dear Lord, I approach you to give thanks to all mothers who so generously and freely give love, comfort, and guidance to their children every day. I ask you, Lord, to give them strength to carry on doing their work. Give them patience and let them see that they are loved, appreciated and respected. I thank you for the sacrifice each mother makes every day. And I pray you bless them and touch them with your Grace. I pray this is your mighty name. Amen.

Praying for Mothers
The book of Proverbs has some verses that define a mother. Proverbs 31:25-30 is perhaps the best.
Proverbs 31:25-30 (New International Version):
She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Mothers are the primary caregivers to children, even grown-up children. We celebrate and honor their love, kindness, and patience that is so generously provided without questioning. Mothers can include stepmothers, mothers-in-law, and grandmothers, for some many will include their spiritual mother.
The work of a mother is often underestimated. And the job of a mother is non-stop. The importance of mothers in families, communities, and society as a whole cannot be overlooked and for this reason prayers of thanks and encouragement are extremely important. Some mothers have an extremely challenging role, especially those with disabled children or those in households where there are challenges such as finance or even abuse. Mothers don’t just appreciate prayer they deserve and need it.
Mothers are exceptional people, and despite the commercialization of Mother’s day with candy, cards and overpriced flowers there remains a very Christian aspect to the day. Exodus 20:12 speaks of honoring your mother and father, and while many may not know it, there is a blessing that comes from this. In the New Testament, this command is further emphasized in Ephesians 6:2 “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth”. Mary, the mother of Christ, was perhaps the most important mother of all and many Churches, especially in the Catholic Faith, will be celebrating.
Make Mother’s day more than special
Mother’s day is always a special day but every day should be the same when it comes to mothers. If you consider everything your mother has done, does and will always do for you, one day of celebration and prayer is surely not enough. Be encouraged to pray for your mother and other mothers every day, and your prayers will make a big difference to the world we live in.
