Welcome to St Ambrose Catholic Church, Concord West



Mothers Day Prayer

Dear Lord,

Bless all mothers and every grandmother with the finest of your spiritual blessings today.

Let their joy be contagious; let their passion be pure; and let their life overflow with all the blessings they deserve. We thank the Lord for the great gift of motherhood. We pray in gratitude for our mothers and grandmothers and on this special day, set aside to honour mothers, we ask for a special touch from the Lord for each one of them.

Loving God, bless and care for our mothers and grandmothers always.
May they always be loved and cherished. Help us to be grateful and helpful, not just on Mother’s Day but every day.
We make this prayer in the name of Jesus, who loved His mother very much.

Amen
