Then pray-Dear God, mothers come in many different forms, and today we celebrate them all. Thank you God for mothers! For those women who are now among the angels and whom we miss dearly on earth. Thank you, God, for mothers of the past. For every woman who is raising children right now, thank you, God for the mothers of today. For all those women who are expecting but aren’t quite mothers yet! Thank you, God, soon-to-be mothers. For the women who took in others’ children through adoption and foster care. Thank you, God, for the mothers with hearts so big.For those women who have lost a child to death and must carry on, thank you, God, for the mothers who must be so strong. For all the women who mother everyone else, thank you, God, for those who are like mothers to us and who have influenced in so many ways. Amen.

Then pray the Lord’s Prayer- Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
