Today’s Prayer: Eternal God, beginning and end, you who sustain all things, who understand all things, who existed before all things, and who are without end, be with us today and always, remain among us, strengthen our will and intentions, sanctify our hearts and souls and remove from us all that is not of you. Amen (Adapted from a prayer from the Ethiopian Liturgy)
Mother’s Day Prayer:
We thank you, God, Creator of us all, for our mothers.
We thank you that they gave us life and nurtured us all those years. They gave us our faith, helping us to know you and to know Jesus and his ways. They taught us how to love and how to sacrifice for others. They taught us that it was okay to cry and that we should always tell the truth.
Bless our mothers, with the graces they need and which you want to give them today. Help our mothers to feel precious in your eyes today and to know that we love them. Give our mothers strength and courage, compassion, peace and those who have passed eternal life.
Bless our mothers this day and always with your love. Amen (Adapted from a Mother’s Day Prayer found on Creighton University Ministries web site)
