Moms have a very special place in everyone’s heart, so let’s make time not only to celebrate them during this month of May, as we have celebrated Mother’s Day but to dedicate prayers for moms. Their caring nature makes it possible for us to cherish them, especially because they love us unconditionally. They give us all the best in life, and what is a better way to show our gratitude than lifting their name to the Lord? The best way of reciprocating their love is by telling Him how much we care for the most important women in our lives. Here’s a list of prayers for mothers for every circumstance.
Dear God, I pray for my mom’s sound health, and that she will never get sick. As I remember the days that she has taken care of me, protect my mom against anything that will harm her way. I pray for her life and that she can spend more time praising Your name. May the words from the bible and Your power heal her from all the wounds, physical and those that cannot be seen; heal her from the pain of the past, hurt of the present, and the worries of the future. I ask this in the name of Your loving son, Amen.
“Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” – Jeremiah 33:6
My Lord, my mom has been taking care of me for as long as I can remember. That has got to be a lot of work and I know that sometimes it causes her to be weary. Lift the burden from her shoulders for times that she can’t take it. She’s strong because You made her that way but I am asking Your grace to lessen her worries for her to live a sound life. I lift this prayer in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” – Psalm 9:1
Dear God, I thank you most especially for my mother. Thank you for blessing me with a magnificent woman, courageous and kind. Her warmth will overcome any storm that will pass my way. Thank you for giving her the strength to surpass any challenges that she may face and thank you for making me appreciate the smallest things when it comes to her. But most importantly, I am thankful for giving me a mother who draw me to Your words as a kid and is constantly teaching me about Your ways. I pray that my mother will also be grateful to me as much as I am to her. I ask this through Your name, Amen.
Almighty Father, forgive me for every wrongdoing that I did, and I pray that You do the same for my mother. She is a very kind soul but is not perfect, as all human beings are. I ask for your forgiveness in times that she wasn’t able to hold herself and her temper. Help her to be compassionate and to love even her enemies. Teach her to be mindful of her actions and the consequences they may bring, and most of all, teach her how to forgive. Amen.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” – Ephesian 2:8
Dear God, I lift up a prayer for my mother to give her strength and courage. She has gone through a lot but she always has so much to give. She loves and helps me unconditionally and has been my strength during my darkest time. I pray for her to believe in You and to have a more powerful prayer life since talking to You makes a difference in one’s perspective and actions. Lend her strength to also face her worries and what the future holds. We trust this in Your name, Amen.
“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you.” – Isaiah 66:13
My mother is a lot of things. She constantly takes care of me like how the Lord takes care of everything. I will always lift a prayer for my mom to you, my Almighty Father. Please remain by my mother’s side through everything. I will trust Your ways, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
