Prayer for the Stay-at-Home Mom

All of my daily chores, I offer unto thee, O Lord,

to glorify thee and to save the world.

Thou seest my worries, my work and the exhaustion I hide from others.

I offer them to thee today.

Put joy and love into my heart,

especially when I am tired,

so those entering our home,

feel as if they entered into Thine.

Benedicte Drouin
