Dear Father, Thank you for my amazing mother, grandmothers and other mothers who taught, shared and guided me with their faith, wisdom and experience. Thank you for the abundant gift of being a mother to two precious souls you’ve placed in our lives. Please bless all mothers of both young and old, mothers who are not able to be with their children, mothers who have lost children and those who long to have children, but cannot. We look to you for strength, patience, perseverance, understanding, comfort, encouragement and grace in all these circumstances. In our Savior’s loving name, Amen.
