For all of our mothers…

Prayer For Mothers Day
Heavenly Father we thank You for our mothers who untiringly love and care for us with every passing day.. but today Lord, on this important “Mother’s Day”, we specially want to lift up all mothers throughout the land..”, and thank You for the very special role they play in the lives of their children. Thank You for the selfless love they so often show and for the grace and encouragement they are able to give us, as well as their correction, wisdom and counsel. Thank Your for the role model they so often provide to us and to others.. and for the many sacrifices they willingly make on account of their children and families. We pray that the influence that they exercise over their children would be godly wisdom, seasoned with salt and bathed in prayer. We pray that You would provide the necessary health and strength they need to care for their families in their demanding task, and that You would grant each one multiplied grace, as they seek to carry out the many roles and responsibilities each within their own homes. This we ask in Jesus name,

Prayer For Mothers-In-Law
Dear Father God, we thank You that You were the one that instituted the role of the family in our lives, where children are brought up in a secure home, and where loving parents provide for their children in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. We thank You also for the wider family and today Lord, we particularly want to bring before You the role of mothers-in- law within the family unit. Sadly Lord the role of “mother-in-law” has too often become a target of cruel jokes and yet we praise You for the grace and wisdom of this special person within the extended family, who can be such a source of encouragement and wisdom, both to the parents and to their grand -children. Give grace and wisdom to all women who have been called into the important role of Mother-in-law, and we pray that You would endue each one with godly virtue and gracious wisdom, so that they may to know when to offer wise counsel.. while having the discernment to know when to quietly withdraw. We pray that You would curb any critical attitude they may have towards their daughter-in law or son-in-law, but rather we pray that the role of mother-in-law may increasingly become a be a source of great help, valued encouragement and gracious wisdom. This we ask in Jesus name,

Prayer Vigil is May 5 from 10AM to 4PM in the sanctuary. Come in the front door!
