My Mother is one of the primary reasons I am who I am, so in celebration of Mother's Day, let's take a short break from "The Infinite in Everything" to pray for our Moms. My Mom has been praying for me my whole life; now I have a prayer for her.
Mom: A Simple Prayer for You
Love Your Son
That you know you are as loved, as much as you love
That you see compassion, like the kind you offer
That you feel hospitality, like the generosity you practice
That you experience comfort, the way you comfort others
God, few people pray as much for others as my Mother
Lord, few individuals empower children like my Mom
Father, few people care for your creatures like my Mother
Jesus, few individuals live as much like you as my Mom
Spirit, few people bring your healing like my Mother
Holy Other, we know we can’t earn your love or grace,
And that what you give is free,
So this prayer is a quiet reminder about a gentle heart:
A simple prayer of thanksgiving,
And a simple request that my Mom would feel what she offers.
Simple—from us, to you: Thank you.
