Invocation for Mother's Day

Here’s an opening prayer for Mother’s Day, written by Kate McIlhagga.

Mother’s Day Invocation

Come, Mother God,
come as an enfolding
nurturing presence,
come as steadfast love
to hold us.

Come, Mother God,
come as an enabling
strengthening force,
come as tough love
to let us go.

Come, Mother God,
come as friend and comforter
healing our wounds,
walking our way,
come as wounded healer
to make us whole.
