Prayer for Mothering Sunday

This simple prayer can be used during the service to involve everyone. Try it out in school assemblies too.





  1. Place a hand on the heart and pray: ‘Thank you God,  that you love each one of us’
  2. Wrap your arms around yourself and pray: ‘Thank you God for the love of mothers, past and present and still to come’
  3. Make a ‘roof shape’ with your fingertips touching and pray: ‘Thank you God for homes and help those who don’t feel safe today.’
  4. Wriggle the fingers on both hands and pray: ‘Thank you God for all the people who work to take care of us every day.’
  5. Cross over your forearms or index fingers to make a cross shape and pray: ‘Keep us close to your love each day’
