Mother's Day - 12 May 2019

Mother's Day Prayer

We pray for Mothers everywhere….

For mothers of young children that they may nurture and raise their children to be good and faithful people in the world.

For mothers of older children that they may have the wisdom to know when to help their children hang on to their roots and when to spread their wings.

For mothers of grown children that they may feel satisfaction in a job well done.

On this day we remember mothers of children in war-torn countries
mothers of children where disaster or famine has struck
and mothers who fear for their children's safety
that they may find food for their children
justice for their families
and peace for their souls.

We also lift up those for whom this day is painful
mothers whose children are missing
mothers whose children have died
mothers who have lost children to miscarriage
mothers who have had abortions
mothers who have lost custody of their children
and mothers whose children have disappointed them.

We pray for those who wish to have children but have none
that they may be filled by God.

We pray, too, for all motherless children
children whose mothers have abused or abandoned them
and for all those whose mothers have recently died.

For all the good experiences of motherhood, we thank and praise you Lord.
We lift up to you for healing all the painful experiences of motherhood.


    Rev. Joelle Colville-Hanson, Lutheran Pastor, Rowland IA

Please join us for Worship services at Ascension Church. Our "Order of Worship"follows The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and the 1982 Hymnal along with other music resources such as GIA and Taize. With the Holy Eucharist as our main worship, we hope to provide you a meaningful time of communing with the Holy Spirit. Our service includes readings from the Holy Bible, a Sermon, Intercessions and the Communion of Bread and Wine. We hope to also provide you with a blended church music - honoring our traditional hymns as well as contemporary praise songs.

All baptized Christians are welcomed to receive the Blessed Bread and Wine which we believe to be the Real Presence of The Risen Jesus Christ.

We also send communion to those at home through the ministry of our Eucharistic Visitors.

We also have special services through the many seasons of the year and invite you to contact us for the dates and times of these services.
