Almighty God and Father, we give you thanks for your plan to nurture and sustain your work in all generations through the loving arms of motherhood.

We thank you for the wonder, grace, and blessing that transforms women into mothers.

We thank you for the courage, bravery, and sacrifice of your sustaining grace over the fears and challenges of motherhood.

We thank you and celebrate our mothers for their uncompromising and unyielding love for us.

And we celebrate all of motherhood, as you envision it, as the ultimate expression of the most tender and unconditional love in all of humanity. Amen.
