A prayer for Mothering Sunday
Loving God, thank you for mums and children and for all the joy of family life.
Be with those who are grieving because they have no mother; be close to those who are struggling because they have no children; be near to those who are sad because they are far apart from those they love.
Let your love be present in every home, and help your church to have eyes to see and ears to hear the needs of all who come.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
