Mom, this is for you on your special day. Give thanks to Him for all He’s done in your life. He loves you so much!
Lord, look at my little ones. They’re looking to me for love and guidance, for truth and knowledge, for help in navigating this big, big world. I’m overwhelmed with the beautiful responsibility and so very grateful for this most-important life work.
You are my provider, my encourager, and so I turn to you. Father, I give my heart to you—please fill it with patience. They’re sure to push me. Again.
Open my mind to your wisdom and knowledge. They’re so curious; their questions are endless.
Teach me to be wildly generous with your love. They need it. All day. Every day.
Grow my faith, my Lord. They need to know you live in me and that one day you can live in them.
With you I can be the mom they need. With you I can do this well. You are my everything. And I am so very grateful.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
From all of us at Christian Mommy, we wish you a wonderful special Mother’s Day!
