Beautiful Mother’s Day Prayers to Honor and Bless Mothers

Mother’s day prayers can be a special day to celebrate your own mother, or the women who had a significant influence in your formative years.  Often, Mother’s day is celebrated with a special meal, special outing or something to show your mom how much you appreciate and love her.  You may be creating a special card or greeting for her, or wanting to share a special prayer for your mother.

Mother’s day doesn’t have to be celebrated just once a year!  You can show your appreciation and mother’s day prayers any day of the year to celebrate and encourage a loving mother who has given the work of her hands and the love of her heart.

Mothers aren’t only the biological woman who birthed a child.  You may have (or be) adoptive mothers, expectant mothers, new moms, mother figures or role models who fill the important roles of encouraging the spiritual growth of their children and teaching them the ways of the Lord.

Whether a mother has adult children, an unborn baby, is a single mother or doesn’t have her own children but cares for the children of others, God has placed a noble work on the heart of the woman who is providing a mother’s love to children.  The gift of mothers is a special blessing that helps us to understand God’s great love a bit better.
