Sunday, May 9

Today is Mother’s Day. Ahead of the day, President Joe Biden issued the official White House proclamation saying, “Each year on the second Sunday in May, we take time to thank and celebrate mothers across America — those who give us life and believe in us, so we can believe in ourselves.” The president added that “Like so many fellow Americans observing this day without their Moms with them, I will spend this Mother’s Day missing my own mom.”

“Our Nation would not be where we are today without the foundations built by mothers.  This Mother’s Day, let us honor not only our own moms for their many contributions to our lives, but all mothers whose arms have cradled new generations and whose many gifts, unselfishly given, have blessed us all,” the president said. He concluded by calling on “all Americans to express their love, respect, and gratitude to mothers everywhere, including the figures in our lives who nurture, guide, and sacrifice for us in the ways that mothers do.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God’s blessing and encouragement for mothers around the nation on this day.
  • In thanksgiving for God’s gift of motherhood to all people.
  • For the president and administration officials as they make decisions that directly impact mothers, families, and children through their policies.
