Today is Mothering Sunday – a day which arouses strong and often negative feelings in many people for all sorts of reasons.
Pray for those who relationships with their mothers, or experiences of motherhood have been damaging.
Pray for those whose mothers are lost to them, whether through death or other circumstance.
Pray for those who long to be mothers, but cannot.
Pray for those who can and do rejoice today.
These Biblical mothers are depicted in Cromer parish church, Norfolk.
