Thank you, God, for three mothers who mean so much to me; for my precious mom who is so kind and helpful to everyone; for my beloved wife, the mother of our children, who loves each of us with all her heart; and for my dear mother-in-law who gave me my wife and is always there for us.
Thank you, God, for two mothers who have blessed our family; for each of our daughters-in-law who have given themselves to our sons and who have given us such wonderful grandchildren.
Thank you, God, for the mothers who have loved their children with Your love; for those who have served and sacrificed themselves for their family; for those who have sought to train their children in the Lord.
Thank you, God, for the mothers who may have failed but are still our mothers; for those whom You still love with the same love You had for us all when You gave Your Son to die upon the cross; for those who have a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
Thank you, God, for the women who have never been mothers; for those who have been as a mother to some; especially for those who have loved and cared for your church; for those whose lives show Christ to all around them.
Thank you, God, for being to us as a mother to her children (Deuteronomy 32:18); for never forgetting us (Isaiah 49:15); for comforting us (Isaiah 66:13); for loving, caring and protecting us (Matthew 23:37).
