Sunday 14 May 2017 is Mother’s Day in Australia and many other countries.
We pray for all mothers, including those who are sick, dying or who have died.
We thank You for our mothers to whom You have entrusted the care of every precious human life from its very beginning in the womb.
…Watch over every mother who is with child, strengthen her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and for her unborn baby.
…Assist all “spiritual mothers”, those who, though they may have no children of their own, nevertheless selflessly care for the children of others — of every age and state in life.
We beseech You to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to all mothers who sorrow for children that have died, are ill or estranged from their families, or who are in trouble or danger of any kind. Help grieving mothers to rely on Your tender mercy and fatherly love for all your children.
