Hannah Mothers will keep your sons, grandsons, nephews, brothers, fathers, grandfathers, husbands, lovers and partners in constant and daily prayer. Their names will be included in our daily, weekly and monthly National Prayer and Medication Calls.
Please add specific names to our Circle of Life by using the form below. A space is provided for including the individual’s mother’s name.
In Jewish tradition, prayers for healing/protection are generally offered in the form: “Benjamin son of Rachel,” e.g., or “Dina daughter of Leah.” Some say identifying people in this way calls on God’s mercy, because “mercy” and “womb” come from the same root in Hebrew; others site Psalm 116:16 in which the petitioner uses the formula, “I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid.” Whatever your usual tradition, you are invited to identify individuals by their mothers’ names when adding them to the Circle of Life.
If you are also joining yourself in the Hannah Mothers Campaign, please sign on — Count me in! — and please share the word.
