On Mother’s Day this year, remember mothers you know, or mothers around the world, who have sacrificed to bring up their children in the Christian faith. Some mothers who live in countries where Christians are persecuted have lost homes, families, and friends after deciding to follow Christ. Others have lost their lives, leaving children who honor their memory.
You can make a reminder to pray for mothers and children.
