Hugs to every barren woman out there who feels invisible, alone, and like her value is diminished by her empty womb today. You are beautiful, strong, and precious to God, too. You are not a second class citizen in the Kingdom of Heaven. Today you sow in tears, though the fields yield no food, you will reap with joy when He comes.
Lord, I pray for the mothers who won’t get that special hug, gift, and/or phone call from their son or daughter this year because their child is no longer with them on this Earth. Comfort them as only you can and grant the peace that surpasses all understanding. Wrap them in your arms and hold them close and let them feel your love. Assure them that you see their tears and you are with them in their grief until that very day where you will wipe our tears away and we shall reap in joy as we see you face to face and also the little ones waiting to run into their mothers’ arms in Heaven. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Lord, I pray for everyone, young and old, male and female, whose hearts are aching with grief at the loss of their mothers on this weekend of honoring mothers. Comfort our hearts and grant us the peace that only comes from you and show us how to be a blessing to the living while honoring the memories. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
