My mother is wonderful and always has been, but this article is not about her, or, if you’re an adult, your mother. This article is about any mother that currently cares for the vulnerable child – the person who is a paragon of parenthood, even whether they’re a parent or not. This article is about the situational mother. be mother
Mothers don’t have to be people who have carried their infants to birth. But mothers do need to be carers, because mothers are carers. As the Father Heart of God is to love us in perfect accord to His flawless will, the Mother Heart of God is to provide the nurture crucial to all our human development, which is indispensable in early life.
This article is about the most important mother alive. It’s not about the greater legacy that has been left by the mothers of yesteryear in their suffering for our grandparents’, our parents’, and our own good. It’s about the mother in the midst of actually mothering.
A PRAYER FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT MOTHER ALIVE
In Your Wisdom You made the world to be sustained through fathers and mothers; of two persons biologically assigned and called to procreate, and without them both, all intelligent creation is ruined. Glory is Yours, LORD, for Your way that sees humankind prosper on the earth.
Thank You, firstly LORD, for fathers. Thank You for the image of servanthood that the male embodies in leading as Jesus would. Thank You that a good father is a safe man, capable of leading his family as a helper, first and foremost, that they might have all his strength, because he submits ubiquitously to You. Thank you, also, for all the women of past who’ve been mothers, and who’ve cared for children as a mother should.
