Prayers for Mothering Sunday (1)

These prayers of mine are not new, but they remain relevant, and will soon be published.


Mothering God

Mothering God, hold in the safe embrace of your love

Those who mourn

Those who ache with longing

Those whose hearts are pierced as by a sword


Mothering God, like a small child learning to walk, take by the hand

Those who attempt new things

Those who are uncertain or unsure

Those who wobble and weave


Mothering God, like a dancing partner, spin with delight

Those who rejoice in success

Those whose dreams have found fulfilment

Those who dream the dreams of your Kingdom


Mothering God, grant they all may find themselves

Comfortably resting

Like a weaned child

On the parent's knee.
