Being a mother is the hardest work in the world. From birth, the mother should feed, keep clean, develop, educate, take care of their education from birth. And the duties of the Orthodox parent, who believes in the Lord, also include the obligatory daily maternal prayer for her child.
The miraculous power of maternal prayer
Maternal prayer is invaluable to the child. No wonder one of the most famous Christian sayings says that the prayer of the mother can even pull from the bottom of the sea. The truth and relevance of this saying has been repeatedly proven in practice. Numerous examples from life (including those archived in various sources) show how the mother prayer rescued children in the most difficult and dangerous situations.
Between the mother and her child there is a lifelong, solid and unbreakable bond on a spiritual level. Words emanating from the mother’s mouth are able to directly influence the fate of the child, so any mother should wish her children only good things, not curse and not talk about them badly, and not make unfavorable predictions for their adult life.
A mother has special power over her child — the power bestowed on her by the Lord himself. Maternal love is the strongest in the world, love is the most sincere, bright, unselfish and holy. A mother for a child is a personal guardian angel in human form, who has been with him since conception. Being a mother is the life purpose of any woman. Mother is important and necessary for the child - this is precisely the meaning of her life.
The miraculous power of maternal prayer is associated with the power of maternal love, with the power over the child given to her by God.

How to choose the right mother prayer?
Any mother prayer for her child has an incredible power. However, it often happens that the parent is in doubt and does not know which particular Orthodox text to refer to.

When and how to read a prayer for children?
Any mother worries about her child, no matter what age it is. And each mother wishes her child good health, a happy fate, and an even life. The task of the mother is not only to give birth and raise her child to a worthy person, but also to do everything so that the life of her son or daughter is formed in the most favorable way. All this is an incredibly difficult affair, and the Orthodox prayer can be a great help in it.
Alas, it often happens that people remember about prayers only in difficult times. Daily bustle and routine, unfortunately, displace the spiritual component from a person. Meanwhile, the maternal prayer for their children should be pronounced every day - only then it will become a reliable and strong protective barrier. It is necessary to address it not only in the minutes when children have any problems, but also in periods when everything is calm and serene in their lives.
The prayer for children should be said with gratitude to God for giving the opportunity to bear the proud calling of the mother. At the same time, one should not forget to ask the Creator for forgiveness for outbursts of anger and swearing at his children (as every mother has), for lack of patience and wisdom in some situations.
Motherly prayer must be read with an open heart. Consciousness of the woman at the time of reading should be freed from all extraneous thoughts. It is important to concentrate on every word that makes up the sacred text. Sincere prayer will certainly be heard by the highest forces.
