Sunday, (May 9) – Praise and thank God for all mothers on this Mother’s Day. Pray for all mothers to emulate Mary, the mother of Jesus, that like her, they will love God with all their hearts and respond favorably whenever God calls. As Mary offered a magnificent prayer to God not long after she became pregnant, pray that mothers will follow her example, and are deeply prayerful, and speak to God from their hearts day-by-day. As Mary presented Jesus in the Temple, pray that mothers will consecrate their children to God and do everything possible to help their children do what God wants in their lives. As Mary stood at the foot of the cross and suffered with her Son, pray that mothers will stand with their children throughout life, especially when things go bad, to offer love and support in whatever way they can.
