Mothers Prayer Celebration
Mothers Prayer Celebration Introduction:
Hannah prays and says, “My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in my God.
My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in my victory.” I Samuel 2:1.
We compare Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 2:1-10 to Mary’s Magnificat in Luke 1:46-55.
How does their faith in God’s mystery inspire them to praise?
Hannah takes her concerns to the Lord. She appears blessed as one of the Lord’s chosen. It is interesting that this story begins with Hannah.
Psalm 16 is a symmetric Psalm, five stanzas of two verses each. Although our mortal world is filled with many trials and tribulations, we may still turn to our Lord in prayer for strength and capacity to persevere. We may praise the Lord for the blessings He will bestow upon us as we travel through life.
The concept consistent within Hebrews is that as long as one confesses belief in the Lord, salvation will come to each of them. Hebrews summons us to spiritual alertness.
Jesus reserves some of his most essential teaching for private moments with His disciples.
I pray you’ll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go.
Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe.
Mother’s Prayer Scripture:
1 Samuel 1:4-20, 2:1-10.
Hebrews 10:11-14, (15-18), 19-25.
Go in peace; the God of Israel grant the petition you have made to him. 1 Samuel 1:17.
Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge. Ps. 16:1. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Ps. 16:11.
Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. Heb. 10:23.
Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.” Mark 13:2.
Psalm 16 Song
Missionary Diocese of St. Benedict
visit your people
and pour out your strength and courage upon us,
that we may hurry to make you welcome
not only in our concern for others,
but by serving them
generously and faithfully in your name. Amen.
The Summons Song
John Belle and Graham Maule, Iona Community.
Sung by Robert Kochis
Will you come and follow me
If I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know
And never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown,
Will you let my name be known,
Will you let my life be grown
In you and you in me?
you create all moments of our lives,
giving each its meaning and purpose.
Strengthen us to witness continually
to the love of Jesus Christ,
that we may hold fast in times of trial,
even to the end of the ages. Amen.
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
