Prayer for Thursday

The Jewish festival of Shavuot ends at sundown today.

Mothers and their children are in a category all their own.
There’s no bond so strong in the entire world.
No love so instantaneous and forgiving.
~ Gail Tsukiyama, Dreaming Water

O Loving Lord,
You have created mothers in love and blessed them with children.
As they work tirelessly to support their families may they be showered with your blessings.
Give mothers strength to exercise compassion as they live each day under your care.
May those who are joined in your love,
support mothers by their fervor of spirit and devotion to prayer.

(Bishop Kevin Manning; Source: Micah Challenge)
