For those who have mothered us into birth,
For those we call “mother” who have taught us to be disciples of Jesus,
For expectant mothers and those whose wombs ache for motherhood,
For all who have borne the pain of losing a child,
And for mothers who have passed into the heavens yet are with us always:
May the gentle and strong mothering Spirit of God be their guide and their peace.
We pray to the Lord.

For mothers far away from their children:
For those in the military and those in other lands, bring them home;
For mothers separated by divorce, pain, or conflict, give them peace.
May they believe in the promise of God
and hope in Chirst who calls all creation to be united in him.
We pray to the Lord.
