A Catholic Prayer for Mothers-prayer to be a Good Mother
A Catholic Mother’s Prayer
Thank you for the gift of my life.
I come before You knowing that I am weak and wanting to be strong. As St. Paul says, I often do what I do not want to and fail to do what I should. I ask You to forgive me of my sins, which pull me away from You and distance me from my children, my husband, and others.
I know that with Your help and guidance I can be who You created me to be.
Thank you for giving me the gift of my vocation of motherhood. Thank you for my husband and our child(ren).
Please help me to be the mom You created me to be. May I seek Your guidance and help to be a wonderful mother to my child(ren) and set a good example of love and faithfulness to You.
Thank you for being with me in times of trouble.
Help me to remember to turn to you frequently, especially when I am feeling stressed, frustrated, or sad. Help me to be uplifted at these moments by thinking of Your great love for me and know that the moments will soon pass.
Help me to remember that there is a rainbow after the rain-that You are ever faithful and that You want me to draw to You, seek You, and be a light to myself and to others.
Thank you for being with me in times of joy.
Help me to remember You in times of joy as well and not just seek You out when I am troubled.
Thank you for Your great love for me-a love that resulted in Your immense suffering and Your death on the cross or my sins.
Help me to see Your sacrifice as a gift of love for me and as an example of how I can sacrifice for others out of love for them.
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of the sacraments that bring me closer to You.
May I receive them frequently and with a heart open to You and Your will for me.
Thank you for Your continual guidance of and love for me and for my family. Thank you for always providing for all of our needs and many of our wants as well.
Help me to recognize and appreciate all that You do for us.
Thank you for Your great love for me and for my family. May I always be aware of Your love for us and live my life each day with confidence in Your love and mercy.
Help me to be a good example of faith to my family and to those around me.
May I always have gratitude in my heart for You and all that You do for us.
Thank you, Lord.
