Blessing Of A Mother

Holy God,
You compare Your own love for Your people
to the love of a mother for her children.
Look with kindness on this mother,
give her comfort in moments of sorrow,
and joy in her work for her family.

Listen to her prayers,
and bless + her in all she does for You.
Let her share with Jesus Your Son
and Mary our mother
in the everlasting happiness of Heaven.

Father,
we ask this grace
through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
