Mother's Day Prayers Bible Verses:
But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene. Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved, aka John, standing there, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold your son!" Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" From that hour, the disciple took her to his own home. John 19:25-27 NHEB.
Isn't it comforting that our Savior, in his most distressful hour, during his work and death for the sins of the chosen, thought of the pain of his mother? He had compassion on her. He took care of her during HIS final, dying moments.
Tradition says that the disciple John cared for her for the next twelve years in Jerusalem. Let this be a living example for all of us to follow.

Praise God for godly mothers all around the world. Lord, please bless their teaching efforts with their children. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ pass through God-fearing mothers into their children.
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus, to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy; having been reminded of the pure faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also. 2 Timothy 1:1-5 NHEB.
There is nothing like a woman, a mother, with pure faith in God, through Jesus Christ. A mother full of the Spirit of God, caring for her children, is one of the greatest witnessing relationships on earth. Fathers often spend so much time providing and protecting the family, that much of their physical and spiritual life is spent outside the home. (That is not meant as a free-pass, Dads. Help your wife, Bud!)
Mothers, on the other hand, have such a constant loving presence in the lives of their children, that the children are heavily influenced by them. "Mom" naturally, practically, becomes the "go to" person in the family for much of the day. When childrens' crisis arrive Mom is usually the first to know and the first to minister to the hurting child. She gives the first hug and says the first prayer. Mom sheds a tear of compassion, and addresses the wounds, whether physical or emotional. Kids rely on Mom. Mom irreplaceable.
We see in this Mothers Day Bible passage that Lois and Eunice, respectively the grandmother and mother of Timothy, lived a life of faith, which was in turn passed on to Timothy. The two mothers took their responsibility to "train up a child in the way he should go" literally. God blessed their patient, persistent efforts and prayers. They believed that their mission would result in Timothy "never departing from the Christian faith" (Proverbs 22:6). That's a tremendous example of the position of influence a godly mother has on a compliant child.
A Proverbs 31 wife and mother is the most beautiful creation on earth. Compare a godless mom to a biblically trained Christian mother sometime. "Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her" (Proverbs 31:28).
What real mother doesn't dream of experiencing those reactions inside her most intimate relationships on earth?

Dear Heavenly Father,
You knew at the time you created Eve
What every child would mostly need
Someone to birth us, and choose our name
Someone to nurse us, and keep us warm
Thank you for Motherhood, O Lord!
She filled in the scrapbooks with every accomplishment
So proud she was when we took our first step
Mom watched us play ball, learn our music, and brought us to church
She helped us read our books, and study hard
She placed in our hearts the desire to follow the Lord.
Here we are, looking at our Mom, in total admiration
Where would we be now, without her loving care?
Why did we take it all for granted?
Thank you, Lord, thank you, for my Mother.
I stand in honor of her this day. Thank YOU, Mom!
In Christ's Name, Amen.
Dear Lord God,
I lift up my Mother to You.
She loves You first, and that love reflects upon me.
She is so sweet and so concerned about my life.
She sacrifices so much for my well-being.
She has done so very much for me.
I lift my Mom up to you, Father.
She prayed for me, she nursed me.
My Lord, she gave her all for me.
I pray that you bless her, Lord
both now and forever.
Thank you for my wonderful Mom!
In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
I hope you were blessed by this Mother's Day prayer.
