Mothers Prayer Celebration

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. 
Mother’s Prayer 

 Celine Dion 

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. 

Psalm 16. 

Hebrews 10:11-14, (15-18), 19-25. 

Mark 13:1-8. 

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.

Redeeming Sustainer,

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 

Wild Goose 

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? 

Timeless One,

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.
