“And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed:” (Luke 1:46-48 ESV).
Dear heavenly Father,
Thank you for mothers.
For the one whose little child sleeps in her arms, may she find rest from weariness and strength for her spirit. May she grasp the joy of each moment and hold tightly to the small miracles each new day brings.
For the one whose teenager is finding his own way, may she stay steadfast through trials and see the amazing man of God he will become. May she also appreciate the uniqueness in him, because God created him for a special purpose.
For the one who sits in an empty nest, waiting for a visit or call. May she find solace in the quiet and listen for your loving whispers. May she discover new things within herself and realize your special plan for her did not end when her children grew up.
For the one who cares for her special needs child, may she feel your gentle arms wrapped around her when she doesn’t have all the answers. I pray she knows how strong she is and how much I admire her. Send friends to come alongside her and hold her up when she grows tired from the journey.
For the foster mom, may she be blessed beyond measure for being the living example of the gospel. May her boldness affect others and her courage leave a lasting impact. Bring her energy and wisdom every day of her life.
For the one who adopted a child, may she discover the wonder of welcoming and loving a child you chose just for her. May she see your hand guiding her as she walks closely with you. I pray for protection for her family in all they do.
For the one who hopes one day to be a mom, may she trust You with her life and know “all things work together for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose.” (Romans 8:28) May she find contentment in today and hope for tomorrow.
Thank you Lord, for unending grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name,
