Prayer for Moms

Mom and I, 1954

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Dear heavenly father:

Thank you for moms.

Mom, the one who always came running when I got into trouble as a child

and has modeled your presence in my life ever since.

The one who always listens to me,

even when I make no sense and go on and on.

The one who says nice things about me,

even when I feel just awful and beat myself up.

Watch over and protect my mom,

especially when I am not around.

Teach me to remember her patience,

especially when I don’t want to be.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

help me to be a better son,

like your son and our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
