For all mothers who have lost a child.
On Mother’s Day and every day, we honor you, the mothers of this world who are struggling with the intense pain of losing a child. Our hearts ache for you as we think of your children—our brothers and sisters in spirit who have been taken from us too soon. We know that there is no greater pain than the death of a child. But please know that while there is no grief greater than yours, neither is there any love purer than that which lives within you when you love your child so much that nothing else matters anymore except seeing them reach their full potential here on earth before they return again to God in heaven.

5. A Prayer For all Mothers Who Have Lost a Child
Mothers who have lost a child are often left with many unanswered questions, and no amount of time or distance can heal the pain. You’ve likely asked yourself: Why was my child taken from me? What did I do wrong? Where is he/she now? As you grapple with these questions, remember that God knows the answers—and He wants you to know them too.
Here’s a prayer for all the mothers out there whose children have been taken from them through abortion, miscarriage, or stillbirth:
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for your infinite love and mercy. Thank you for answering my prayers for healing. I know that even when my children were killed in their mother’s womb by abortion or miscarried as a result of an accident or disease, they were protected by Your presence during those moments of danger. Please help me understand what happened so that I can find peace and closure in knowing their fate.”
