We thought you may want to pray over the mothers in your church this Sunday.  Alisa wrote this prayer for you to bless the moms to whom you minister. Or, you may wish to print it on decorative paper and send it home with your kids to give to their moms. – Pastor Gary

2012 Mother’s Day Prayer Based on Proverbs 31

A fitting word spoken at the right time is like apples of gold among settings of silver (Proverbs 25:11).

Today is the right time, the time we take for fitting words spoken in honor of you, the Mothers and Grandmothers that have forever impacted our lives!

Thank you for being a rare woman, a capable, intelligent person of character, comparable to precious jewels and far more valuable than pearls. You are a person we can confide in and rely on; you have greatly enriched our lives.

You are always a source of comfort and encouragement to us. You can be counted to be a source of good to us throughout our whole lives.

You give generously in so many ways. We know that you have willingly worked hard to prepare our food, provide clothing, take care of our household to make it a home. Numerous times you have worked late into the night to take care of us and provide for us.

When you speak, you always have something worthwhile to say. You lovingly give us good advice and instruction and guide us with wisdom.

The person you are has been sculpted by the person and character of God Himself. You have set an example for us of one who imitates God.

Because of all these things, we rise up today to give you the praise you deserve. Thank you for being you!

2 BIG Recommends For Last-Minute Prep!

Both of these Mother’s Day lessons are exceptionally easy to prepare and a perfect way to spice up this week’s service!

The Make-Up of a Mother – After a fun opening game and intriguing Rebus Scripture Picture puzzle, you begin your journey through lipstick, eye shadow, eye liner, necklaces, and bracelets to discover the true meaning of Proverbs 31:10, that Mother is far more precious than jewels and more valuable than rubies or pearls.

Mother’s Day Matchup – Combines a mixture of the mental acuity from the classic ‘Memory’ game and the audience’s energy from the ‘Price is Right’ game!   The teaching in this highly-interactive lesson focuses on Leviticus 19:3 (Respect Mother), Proverbs 1:8 (Hold onto Mother’s Teaching), Proverbs 23:22 (Remember Mom when she is old), and Ephesians 6:1-3 (Honor Mother).
