Gracious God, we give you heartfelt thanks as we come before you to ask for your blessing on the many roles carried out by mothers. We thank you for their care, wisdom, patience, and compassion, as they bear and nurture successive generations of humanity. Grant that the innate affection embodied in their care for the young may reflect the love and teaching of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. May it shine as a bright beacon in these dark days of pandemic, re-kindling our concern for others. Help us to be inspired by this example, leading us to provide practical support for those around us, especially where they are at high risk, or are unable to help themselves.
