Rick Warren: Amazing Prayer For Mother's Day "Lord You Chose Them To Create Us"

Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church has released a powerful video of a prayer specificially for Mothers, in preparation for Mother's day this weekend. He begins the prayer "Dear God, none of us had perfect moms," and continues "but we honor our mom's today."

Warren also recognizes that this can be a difficult day for many, praying "we ask you to comfort those with heartaches today." He continues "for moms who've lost a child, through miscarriage or through death," a poignant remark in light of his son Matthew's death from suicide in 2013. "We pray for moms who've had a delayed adoption or even a failed adoption. Comfort these moms," Warren prays. 

Warren also prays for moms who now feel the "pride and the ache" of being in the "empty nest stage." Warren concludes "On this Mother's Day, Lord, we commit ourselves to honoring, and to loving, and to protecting the mothers in our lives, and we thank you for the gift of mothers. And we pray your blessing on them today. Amen."
