A Short Devotion for Mothering Sunday

Introduction

On this the first Sunday when we are asked not to meet together, may we take time in our homes to pray, read God’s Word and look at a few thoughts that the Lord has put on my heart for us all.

Let us pray: Almighty God, infinite and eternal in wisdom, power, and love; we praise you for all that you are, and for all that you do for the world. You have shown us your truth and love in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Help us by your Spirit to worship you in spirit and in truth. Gracious God, we are reminded today of how easily we have taken a mother’s love for granted, failing to express our thanks for the care they have given, Lord, in your mercy forgive us.  Amen.

Let us say the Lord’s Prayer together.

Bible Reading      Luke 2:26-44

Prayers of Intercessions: Gracious God, on this Mothering Sunday we bring our prayers before you. We pray for our country at this time of crises and seek your deliverance. We pray for all mothers the world over. We pray for single mother. We pray for mothers who have experienced heartbreak and we pray for those who have been denied motherhood.

We pray for Church Family at this time that are ill, not forgetting our missionary family and Stuart and his family having so recently lost a loving mother.  Lord in your mercy hears our prayer. Amen.

Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you safe. May the Lord watch over you and protect you. And the blessing of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be upon you always.  Amen.
