Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- May 13

Dear Lord, as we pause today to honor mothers everywhere, let us think of them as we read these words of Emily Sargent:

     "I think true mothers everywhere 
          Are gently brushed by angel wings 
     And in some stillness hear God speak, 
          'Your child can do great things!'
     And so a mother dreams her dreams, 
          And has the love to see
     In every struggling, stumbling child 
          What God knows he can be!
     How can I fail to seek His will, 
          And follow in His way --
     When I have known my mother's prayers 
          Lifting me up each day?"

Oh Lord, bless mothers everywhere as they seek to love and care for their children, and to teach them about You.

In Jesus' name we pray.
