Mother’s Day Tribute & Prayer: For All Parents

Written by Rev. Ashley-Anne Masters

  • For those who got pregnant right away and those who have been trying for years…
  • For those who entrust their babies to the care of another family…
  • For those who cannot wait to welcome a baby into their home and those who are terrified they are not fit to be parents…
  • For those whose child will get a soccer scholarship and those whose child will never run…
  • For those who proudly pose for pregnant photos and those who shamefully hide their bellies…
  • For those who are proud to be fathers and those who hope the DNA tests are incorrect…
  • For those who pay child support and those who need child support…
  • For those who fight with teenage daughters and those whose daughters have run away…
  • For those who cannot pay for college and those who cannot pay for medical care…
  • For those who home school and those who fear their children won’t make it home from school…
  • For those who think their son is the best surprise of their life…
  • For those whose children are in prison and those whose children want to be corrections officers…
  • For those whose baby doesn’t live outside of the womb and those whose wombs are empty…
  • For those taking hormones and those who feel exhausted from hormone changes…
  • For those grieving what will never be and those amazed by what life has become…
  • For those who are single parents and those who are now stepparents…
  • For those who have an empty nest and for those whose nest was never full…
  • For the couple who is closer than ever and the couple getting divorced…
  • For all of your children of all ages, hold them close and give them life.

Heavenly Father, we give thanks to You for mothers everywhere. We give thanks for their love, care, concern, and compassion.

We lift up to You especially those who have struggled in their roles as mothers, where the path has not been smooth.

We pray for those whose mothers perhaps failed in any way. Bring hope in the midst of their lives, whether as mothers or as children. For those relationships that are strained, grant reconciliation. Where there is pain, bring the healing of Your grace and mercy.

For those unable to have their own children, fill their hearts with Your amazing love. Bless their ministry in their roles of being a mother to others.

As we reflect, may our own hearts of love extend to all mothers everywhere. We pray through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, amen.
