Oh Lord, I pray that You will be with and keep our mother/s and our wife in Your beloved arms. They are so dear to me and I know that You think of them in the same way. So often do I forget all they do for me and my children and then it dons on me come mother’s day. This doesn’t have to happen but often does, of which I regret. I do love my dear mother’s and my wife, although my blood mother has passed away this year. Her spirit is no longer with us, but I know that she is in a better place. Lord, thank You for allowing her to raise me to know You, just as You allowed my stepmother to do the same. I am blessed to have both of them in my life for all these forty-some years. My wife is also a blessing. Thank You for bringing her into my life those fifteen years ago. Time has passed so quickly, but I know that You have brought us together and that is why we have stuck around all this time. Lord, help me and my wife learn to love each other in a new way. Help her know that she is loved by me and You today and the rest of my life. I love You, dear Lord. Amen.
Proverbs 31:26-29 (KJV)
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
We give thanks this day for our mothers. Even our wife and our mother who raised us well. God is pleased by all their hard work.
