Pastor Michael Schuermann has an excellent piece on pastoral considerations for Mothers Day. You can read it here.
Since we are using as the Prayer of the Church the Great Litany of St. John Chrysostom during Eastertide at Immanuel, I will be inserting the following bids:
For all mothers, let us pray to the Lord.
For all women with child (especially ______), let us pray to the Lord.
For all women who long to have children, but cannot, let us pray to the Lord.
For all women who have lost a child, let us pray to the Lord.
