Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to reflect on the impact my mother has had on my life. Thank you for the ways she has shown the love of Christ to me. If your relationship with your mother is negative, thank God for the ways she has shown you the limits of human love in comparison to God’s perfect love. Though Romans 3:23 says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,Psalm 136:1b reassures that “[Your] steadfast love endures forever” (ESV).

I appreciate all the contributions my mother makes or has made to myself and my family. Direct me to be more intentional about expressing my gratitude to her, and also about expressing my gratitude to You for the role she plays in my life. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

For all the mothers I know, I ask that You develop strong character in them, so that “her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.Proverbs 31:28 And for those whose mothers have abandoned them or treated them poorly, remind them of Isaiah 49:15. “‘Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I [God] will not forget you.’

Whatever feelings this Mother’s Day evokes for me, direct me to rely fully on You with those feelings. I believe that You are good, and I choose to trust You regarding my relationship with her. If your mother is deceased, pray and ask God for joyful remembrances.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
