A Blessing for Moms

Being a mom is like no other job in the world, and her job is never done.

Unlike a typical 9 to 5 job, motherhood is a lifelong career based on pure, unconditional love. While she’s responsible for so much, her efforts are often taken for granted and go unappreciated. As Mother’s Day approaches, 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 from Dayspring:

Dear God,
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 CSB), 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.
Amen

We hope you’ll say a prayer 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.
