Prayer for Mothering Sunday


Loving God, 
Thank you for mums and children 
and for all the joy of family life. 
Be with those who are grieving because they have no mother;
Be close to those who are struggling because they have no children;
Be near to those who are sad because they are far apart from those they love.
Let your love be present in every home, 
And help us all to have eyes to see and ears to hear the needs of all who come today. 
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.


Heavenly Father,

We pray for for all those affected by the cyclone that hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi last month. We raise to you all those who have loist loved ones, homes and businesses and those who were injured. Bless and guide all who work to save lives and homes. And help us to do all that we can, through prayer and generous giving towards the rebuilding of those countries.
