Today I pray for my mother--
and our mothers everywhere,
who have made such a major contribution
to the good qualities we have,
Through great effort and patient instructions,
and who have gently polished away our rough edges.
Lord, please bless our mothers
for the endless hours of time they spent
and the nonstop energy they invested in us.
Bless our mothers for the sacrifices made on our behalf
as they often gave up or altered their own dreams
so that we could have ours.
Lord, please bless our mothers,
Who use to hold us before we could walk,
used to hear us before we could talk,
who picked us up whenever we fell,
sometimes letting us fall so we can learn how to pick ourselves up.
Lord, as I gaze in wonder,
as I watch my miracle - my mother.
Lord, You let me know you love me, through her;
In so many different ways.
Nobody loves me like my Mother.
No matter what I do,
Good or bad, happy or sad,
She supports me; She always comes through.
She is a good and fine role model,
A blessing from above.
I couldn’t be any prouder
Than I am today;
You’re my mother and my friend,
It’s a privilege to be your daughter,
Lord, please bless our mothers mightily.
Strengthen them, soothe them,
wrap them in Your infinite love
and shower them with blessings
too numerous to count, too magnificent to describe.
We love them, admire them, respect them,
and we wish that You would give them back
many times the good they gave to us.
I pray in your name, Amin.
