Ruth becomes a Mother

Order of Worship for Mothers’ Day, 2013

Welcome and Announcements

 

Call to Worship

 

Invocation:  Remember, O Lord, what You have worked in us and not what we deserve; and, as you have called us to Your service, make us worthy of our calling.  For those of us who have been called as parents, make us doubly worthy of our calling.  And for those who serve You as mothers in families,  we ask a special blessing today, that they may be able to rise above the discounted opinion of motherhood that prevails in the world and remember that You are the designer of the family and that Your Son entered our world through His mother, Mary.  These things we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever, Amen.
