Wings And A Prayer
A Mother's Day Prayer

Somewhere I read that the greatest gift we can give our children is faith in God, and wings to soar. As does a bird eventually fly from its nest, so too will our little ones leave home when it is time to explore the world on their own. No longer will they be tiny sparrows, but with the right upbringing, hopefully they will exit the nest with the wings of an eagle; strong and able.

It is necessary to prepare children how to fully deal with all the responsibilities of the outside world, but is more important that this foundation stems from a righteous source; God.

Faith in God offers us hope when times seem bleak, and inner strength when we feel like succumbing to weakness. Faith in God provides us the knowledge that we are here on this planet, not just to eat, sleep, work and play, but for a much deeper reason; to share love, and worship God in everything we do and say. Faith in God is a responsibility in itself for we are then stewards and ambassadors of the most precious knowledge. Our children may not always grow up to be award-winning novelists and famous actors, but to be called a child of Christ is more honorable than any earthly title.

I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Continue to use me to do Thy Will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak. Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.

Parents hold a significant part in the raising of their children, and while both mothers and fathers are important aspects to every family, on Mother's Day it is a time to pay homage to those women who have given of their heart for the sake of a child.

The following is a short Mother's Day Prayer.

"Heavenly Father, sometimes the role of mother goes unappreciated and noticed, yet, thank you God, for showing us how valuable these women are in society, and in your precious sight. Thank you, God, for Your continued guidance so that we may teach our children to grow in ways that will make You proud, and thank you for helping us to be honorable vessels which teach by example, rather than mere word. Our thanks, God, may not always be immediate, but when our children have their own children, and we see that that the good ways we have taught them are again passed on to another generation, may our hearts be filled with gladness! This we ask in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen."
