A Mother's Day Prayer

Giving thanks for our blessings.  Today I am thankful for being a mom.  In My Prayer Book (featured left),  I recite this prayer.  

Dear heavenly Father,
I thank you for your infinite love which so exceeds human understanding that to make it more real to me You compared it with a mother's love for her child.  On the strength of this assurance, I know that I shall have Your constant guidance, help, support, and protection.
On this day, set aside to honor mothers.  Bless them always.  Give them grace to set a good example for their families.  Make them constantly aware that their children are a sacred trust from heaven. Hold Your protecting hand over them. Give them strength for every job and courage for each trial.   
I thank You particularly for the gift of my mother and for her love, which has comforted me.  May I never do anything that would grieve her heart.  Guide our footsteps that we walk in the love of Jesus, who set an example by His love for His mother. May I always follow the path which leads to You and guide my children in the same direction.
This is our prayer in His name, Amen.
