Catholics/Thanks Mom


I am a 44 year old man who has gone through some tough spiritual battles and psychological issues.  I find myself in a very good place right now and I am a firm believer that it because of the prayers from my mother.
I would love to get a tatoo in latin but I do not trust google translate:
Can you please give the proper translation for this phrase:
"Thank you mom for praying for me"   or
"Thank you mom for all your prayers"

Whichever is easier to translate..




My Latin is self taught using a Vatican press dictionary and the help of a few friends when I get here my attempt at:

Thanks Mother for your prayers=Mater gratias ago pro precibus tuis

Hope this of some help.

I am willing to attempt to answer any question. If I donít know the answer, I will look-up or pass the question on to friends for feed back. Beside Catholicism (especially the social/moral and the Eastern rites), I am well read on Mormonism and so-called Modern Christian Fundamentalism. Also I study Franciscan History as means of growing in my lay Franciscan calling to holiness in Christ.
