A prayer in honor of deceased mothers

Jasjot Singh

Many countries around the world celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May; however, there are many who no longer have her by her side, since they have already left for the Father’s House. For them, the moms who are in heaven enjoying the Glory of God, we share the following prayer:

We continually pray to you, Lord, for our mother.
We remember her with peace and with love before You,
sure that she lives,
as we are sure that you live
and that your love lasts forever.
We remember her when she was among us…
Sometimes we seem to feel the warmth and stillness
of his protective presence
like when I lived here,
much more for us than for herself.
Give him, Lord, your love, give him your life. Give your peace.
Keep her very close to you.
Be happy and pray before You for us.
Help us to live what she taught us,
more with love than with words.
To pray to you like her, to love you like her,
to make you and others, just like her,
the meaning of our life.
And if due to carelessness or weakness in something you lacked,
forgive her, you who know what it means to be a father and mother
and you know love and forgiveness like nobody else
without measure or limits…
Forgive him his faults for how much he loved everyone.
Thank you, Lord, for this prayer that fills us with peace
in memory of our mother.
Amen.
