Among the Ten Commandments is the directive to “honor your father and your mother.”
The following are blessings from the Bible you can pray on Mother’s Day (and all year) to show the great esteem with which you hold your mother.
The Eternal One bless and keep you.
May He make His face shine upon you
and be gracious to you.
The Eternal lift up His countenance
to look upon you and give you peace.
“May God give you what your heart desires,
and may he fulfill all your plans.”
“I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he would strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner self.”
“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all discernment, that you may approve things that are excellent so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, being filled with the fruit of righteousness, which comes through Jesus Christ, for the glory and praise of God.”
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.”
“May the Lord make your love grow. May it be like a rising flood. May your love for one another increase. May it also increase for everyone else. May it be just like our love for you.”
“May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way.”
