Lent Day 26: Mothering Sunday

Rev Michael Anokye: LENT REFLECTION – 10TH MARCH



Dear God, we are grateful for our mothers and all those who have played a role in nurturing and caring for children across the world. We thank you for the miracle of birth and the tireless work of raising children. Please give all mothers the strength and resilience they need to face the unknown challenges of parenthood and bless them with the joy and fulfilment that come with doing this important work well.

Reading: “John 3:16 “God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son.”


On Mothering Sunday, we appreciate and honour those who have cared for us while reflecting on God’s enormous love for us. According to Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” God loves us so much that He sent His only Son so that we could have eternal life.

Parents worldwide work hard to provide their children with the opportunities they need for their future. They do this by providing a house, protecting and maintaining their child’s well-being, disciplining them, selecting and funding their schooling, agreeing to medical care, looking after their financial well-being, and much more.

Mothers, in particular, carry out numerous tasks alongside their professional work, job, or occupation, which they can only fulfil by the grace of God. Let us take this Mothering Sunday to honour our mothers while reflecting on God’s love in the form of Jesus. We should be grateful for all God has provided by sending Jesus to give us eternal life and appreciate and honour those who have cared for people worldwide, particularly mothers who provide for their children’s physical and emotional needs. 


Dear Lord Jesus Christ, we humbly pray that you help all of your children understand the true meaning of love and cherish it. Today, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the mothers worldwide who tirelessly go above and beyond for their children despite the obstacles they may face. We ask that you grant them peace and love and continue to bless them and their families. Amen.


Today, bring a smile to a mother or caregiver with a thank you. I appreciate what you do, and God bless you.
