Prayer for Mothers

by Michael D Nalley   Apr 30, 2005


Lord I pray, with all of my sisters, and brothers
For the grace to honor the glory of mothers
Like the flowers of the earth they somehow impart
The beauty of the pure love that dwells in their heart

We are reminded of this love on Mothers Day
A love more beautiful than the flowers in May
Lead them and guide them, and show them the way
Protect them from harm, and evil we pray

I pray today, and hope to pray tomorrow
That we, their children, never cause them sorrow
To honor them is holy. To honor them is good
We must honor them, as You our Lord said we should

Through Your honor, and glory, the One from the most holy womb
Has honored You by dying for us, and rising from His tomb
I know He loves His mother, as I love mine
But, the honor, and the glory is Thine.
