5 Beautiful Prayers for Mothers, along with Bible Verses

The word ’em is the Hebrew word for mother, and it literally means “the one that binds the family together.” It could be said that Moms everywhere are like the “glue” of the household!

They fill so many roles (at least 40) and do so much to prepare their children to be ready to step out into this world and make it a greater place. What an incredibly important task this is!!

The 2nd verse of Psalm Chapter 131 uses the picture of a mother and child to represent the love between God and a child of His: “Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.”

Below are 5 short, beautiful prayers for mothers – one of Thankfulness, one for Mother’s Day, a Daily Prayer for Mothers, a Prayer for a Mother’s Strength, and a Prayer for Mothers Everywhere. May you have a very blessed day!

    And I know that it’s just a glimpse of Your love.

    I am incredibly grateful for the many things she has taught me.

    She’s there when I need to talk or cry on her shoulder.

    For the many ways my Mother has enriched my life, I thank You.

    May Your Name be blessed forever and ever!

    Almighty King,

    In Your perfect and unfailing love, You gave the gift of mothers.

    And may they always keep their eyes fixed on You.

    Please grant them the strength and courage they need each day.

    Thank You, Lord, for the great gift of mothers!
