Poem/Prayer: Mother us gently, Father us lightly

Mothering Sunday Mother us gently, Father us lightly,
God of our being, ground of our care;
        comfort our grieving, help our believing,
        graceful and loving, teach us to share.

Hold and enfold us, parent with purpose,
taking us forward, showing your way;
         guiding our footsteps, giving direction,
        leading us onward, every new day


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
