Being a mom is like no other job in the world, and her job is never done. Unlike a typical 8-to-5 job, motherhood is a “career” often motivated by pure, unwavering love. While she’s responsible for so much, often it may feel as if she goes unappreciated, or at least under-appreciated.
Let’s reach out to all the moms in our lives to remind them how loved and appreciated they are, and let’s honor and celebrate them with this blessing.
Thank you for your endless provisions of grace and mercy. We come to you today to lift up every woman who answers to the name of “mom.” We ask that you supply each one with the strength they need for those difficult days. Give them wisdom to know when to encourage and when to correct their children. Supply them with an extra dose of patience. Remind them that children are a heritage and a reward from You (Psalm 127:3), and shower them with special moments they can cherish. Lord, we also ask that you draw them close to you daily. Remind them of their worth in Your eyes - that they, too, are cherished children of a loving Father. We pray for contentment in this very special calling. May every mom realize that this is a mission from You, one that brings truly great rewards in the end.
We hope you’ll join us in praying for Moms everywhere. And we hope you’ll also take a moment to share this article with the moms in your life and let them know they’re blessed, prayed for and appreciated. Thinking of a mom (or two) who could use an uplifting note today? Take a moment to pick out a small gift. Set up a special time to connect with her over the next two weeks and simply let her know you care.
She’s the one who knows you deeply and loves you dearly, all the while instilling the importance of faith in God and a love for others. She takes her role seriously, praying for you, guiding you and serving you as a beautiful reflection of God’s unfailing love. It’s time to let her know she has made a difference in your life. Show her how much you truly appreciate her thoughtfulness, kindness, generosity and love. This Mother’s Day, rise up and call her blessed. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:28.
