Mother's Day

In their 6-9 atrium, a group of children wrote a prayer to read aloud in their church for Mother's Day.
God loves us and cares for us like a mother.

The Good Shepherd is like the mother of the sheep. Like a mother, he
takes care of them. He knows them and calls them by name. When they
are lost, like a mother he searches for them. And when he has found
his sheep who was lost, he rejoices. He carries the lambs carefully
like a mother. And if a lamb is ever injured, like a mother he heals it.

God, our mother-- be with us, call us closer to you.

Mother God-- search for us, rejoice with us.

Mother God-- hold us, carry us and heal us.

In the name of your son, Jesus, our Good Shepherd, Amen.
