Thank you for women, and moms, on Mother’s Day
A congregational prayer
Keywords:motherhood, Mother's Day, prayer, public prayer, women, mothers, wisdom
I have two children by adoption. I am so grateful for birth mothers and foster mothers. I remember years of leading parent-child blessing services on Mother’s Day and how difficult that was for me before I had children. Even now, Mother’s Day is a tough day for children who are adopted. In our congregation we have people who have birth grandchildren, had difficult mothers, or are raising their sister’s children. We have a host of strong and courageous women. This prayer is for all such people.
