    God our Father,
    in your wisdom and love you made all things.
    Bless those fathers, who have taken upon themselves
    the responsibility of parenting.
    Bless those who have lost a spouse to death ... or divorce
    who are parenting their children alone.
    Strengthen them by your love that they may become
    the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.
    Grant this through Christ our Lord.

    Heavenly Father I have fallen in and out of love with so many people and yet in my heart I know that You have created us to love and to be loved, with a deep and lasting love that is a mirror of the depth of love that Christ has for the Church. Father, You have demonstrated to us, through the Lord Jesus Christ, the tremendous depth of love that You desire in each of Your children.. a love that flows from You to us – a love that should flow through us to others.

    Develop in me the depth of love that loves as Christ loved.. and Lord I pray that I may be permitted to share that love with a true and lasting soul-mate. Father I have fallen in and out of love before but I pray that I may develop a new and extraordinary depth of love that comes only through You, so that at the right time You would bring into my life that kindred-sprit and soul-mate, whose love for me is only exceeded by their love of You. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Who loved me, and gave His life for me, in Whose name I pray,

    Dear Lord, today I turn to you to give you thanks for my mother. With your own gift of life, she bore me in her womb and gave me life. She tenderly, patiently cared for me and taught me to walk and talk. She read to me and made me laugh. No one delighted in my successes more; no one could comfort me better in my failures. I am so grateful for how she mothered me and mentored me, and even disciplined me.

    Please bless her, Lord, and comfort her. Help her loving heart to continue to love and give of herself to others. Strengthen her when she is down and give her hope when she is discouraged.

    Most of all, Lord, on this Mother's Day, give my mother the graces she most needs and desires today. I ask you this, in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior forever and ever.
