Dear Jesus,
You were a human on this earth with us and you know us and our imperfections so well. I beg you today for peace and grace in my heart as I see the mistakes I have made as a mother.
Help me not to focus on the mistakes I have made or the people who have judged me, but guide my attention to the center of your love.
Grant me the ability to forgive myself and feel how very deeply you love me because I am flawed and need your saving.
Give me the patience and compassion to love my children more deeply than I ever have. I long for their forgiveness.
Guide me with your Holy Spirit and give me the patience and love to let them being to trust in me.
Open my battered heart and lead me to comfort and peace.
Give me the patience and compassion to love my children more deeply than I ever have. I long for their forgiveness.
Guide me with your Holy Spirit and give me the patience and love to let them begin to trust in me.
Please heal the pain I carry in my heart each day and close the distance between my children and me.
I ask this in the name of your most loving mother, the mother of us all.
Amen.
