20And Abishai the brother of Joab, he was chief of the three: for lifting up his spear against three hundred, he slew them, and had a name among the three.
21Of the three, he was more honourable than the two; for he was their captain: howbeit he attained not to the first three.
22Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done many acts; he slew two lionlike men of Moab: also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day.
23And he slew an Egyptian, a man of great stature, five cubits high; and in the Egyptian's hand was a spear like a weaver's beam; and he went down to him with a staff, and plucked the spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and slew him with his own spear.
24These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had the name among the three mighties.
25Behold, he was honourable among the thirty, but attained not to the first three: and David set him over his guard.

Look at every mother who is expecting a child, strengthens her faith in Your fatherly care and love for her and her son on the way . Give courage in times of fear or pain, understanding in times of uncertainty and doubt, and hope in times of trouble. Give joy in the birth of your child.
Bless the mothers to whom you have given the great privilege and responsibility of being a teacher of a boy or a girl.
Make all of them can foster the faith of their children, following the example of Mary, the Mother of Your Son.
Help all the "spiritual mothers" who are in the care of the children of others and assume their task with maternal love, who can discover that engendering life is much more than giving birth.
We ask you to send the Holy Spirit of Comfort to mothers who have lost children, who are sick or separated from their families, who are in danger or problems of any kind. Show them Your mercy and give them strength and serenity.
Fill our mothers with mothers who are no longer with us, who enjoy in Your presence the fruit of their efforts on earth.
Mary, Mother of Heaven, intercede for all mothers, be her guide and consolation. Grant you Grace from God for this life and eternal joy in Glory.
