Prayer Litany for Mother's Day

Here’s a responsive prayer litany for Mother’s Day from Rev. Mindi’s Rev-o-lution blog.  It is based on verses from Isaiah 42, 54 and 66.

Prayer Litany for Mother’s Day
(based on Isaiah 66: 7-9, 12-13; 42:14; 54:13; 54:1)
Midwifing God,
the Prophet Isaiah declared that You are the one who delivers us.
We remember that You are Mother and Father to all of us,
all of us are Your children.
Mothering God, You bring forth new life in our midst.
We honor the mothers around us,
and all who care and love children.

Grandmother God,
You comfort us in our time of grieving and sorrow.
We remember our mothers and grandmothers who have passed on,
for all those we miss on this day.

Teaching God,
You have taught us to honor our mothers and fathers
and have taught us the ways of love.
We remember those who have been like mothers to us,
giving wisdom and guidance in our lives.

Creator God,
we remember that we are all created in Your image
We honor and respect all women in our midst,
mothers and aunts and sisters and friends.
We honor and remember these great women, loving God,
whom You have sent into our lives.

Mothering God,
guide us into ways of honoring and respecting women around our world,
working towards justice and liberation, health and safety
for all women and girls.
In the name of Christ,
who like a mother hen desires to gather us together, we pray. Amen.
