A Mother's Prayer

The traditional wedding ceremony was underway and the mother of the bride was filled with a mixture of joy and sadness. She watched as her daughter, dressed in a beautiful traditional gown, took her place at the altar.

As the ceremony progressed, the mother approached her daughter and placed her hand gently on her shoulder. The room grew quiet as the mother began to pray, her voice filled with emotion.

"My darling daughter," she said, "may the blessings of our Lord Jesus be upon you today and always. May your love for each other grow stronger with each passing day and may your life together be filled with happiness and joy. I am so proud of the woman you have become and I know that you will make a wonderful wife."

The mother's prayer was a blessing, not just for her daughter, but for the entire family. It was a moment that would be remembered for years to come, a testament to the love and support that a mother can offer her child.

As the ceremony came to a close, the mother hugged her daughter, her heart overflowing with love. She was filled with a sense of pride, knowing that she had raised a strong, loving daughter who was now starting a new chapter in her life.
