Lift hands in prayer for new and younger mothers
As they train toddlers in the way to go;
They need great patience and sweet tenderness,
Let God’s great love through their heart overflow!

Pray fervently for mothers of our teens;
That they raise godly offspring in each family.
The most important calling they could ever have;
Guiding with warmth and wisdom, wit and sensitivity.

Fold hands in prayer for older mothers,
Whose children have all grown and left the nest.
For that’s the time a mom is needed in a different way;
She built their firm foundation; may they now call her blessed.

Thank you, our dearest Father, You bless the generations
Of mothers who are faithful in serving You and others.
As they are yielded to Your plan and purpose in their lives
Lord, may Your favour rest each day upon all mothers.

Mothers really do need our prayers. Even moms whose children are grown can't rest on their laurels. That's when the older women are admonished to teach the younger! I guess moms never really get a break, do they?!
