A Collect for Mother's Day
Loving God, on this day
we thank you for the love of our mothers,
who have nurtured our souls and blessed our lives.
May we see your loving Spirit within them and guiding them.
We pray for those mothers in our world today where war or famine, violence or illness have hindered their care for children; and for those mothers who have lost children.
We ask you to bless them with your own special love.
We ask this in the name of our Savior Jesus, who was loved by his mother Mary.
