7 Heartwarming Prayers for Mothers


Mothers are gems. Pure gems. Life is so much better with your mother in it. 

She offers a shoulder for you to cry on, she listens to your anxieties and fears. She sacrifices her time and energy just to see you smile, she teaches you patiently, prays over you, has sleepless nights to make sure you’re doing okay.These are a few of the daily sacrifices mothers make for their children.

As a son or a daughter, it is not the will of God for you to forget or ignore these sacrifices. The Bible teaches us to reciprocate them with honor. It explicitly tells us to honor our father and mother in Ephesians 6:2;

Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise:

(Ephesians 6:2 NKJV)

There are several ways you can translate honor into your actions. You can honor her with respectful words and by serving her, to make life easier for her.

Unrelentless heartfelt prayer is one of the best ways to show the value and the level of priority you place on your mother. With everything she’s done for you, your mother is deserving of your deep, prevalent prayers.

Don’t have any ideas on where to start? These heartwarming prayers below can serve as a starting point for you. Show your mother how much you love and care by praying for her.

Prayer For Mom’s Protection

Beloved Lord,

I thank you for protecting and safely keeping my mom all these years.

I pray that you continue to protect my mother. Keep her from all attacks of the enemy. Please shield her away from bad friends and bad advice so that she may fulfill her duties as a mother, sister, and wife and chase hard after your heart.

Help her walk in the path you have destined for her. May she never stray away from your divine purpose, no matter how quick and unnoticeable it might be. Please give her the spirit of discernment to know what path to take and when she should take it. Guide her my Father.

Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

A Prayer For Mother’s Strength

Dear Father,

Being a mother can be overwhelming. Somehow my mom has to keep up with planning and making a nutritious meal, working to take care of us kids, and keeping up with the necessary details of our lives. She has to show up to support us, endure tantrums and so much more.

I pray that you give my mother the strength to do all these and even more of her personal plans. Clothe her with your infallible strength as she fulfills the calling of raising the children you have entrusted in her hands. She will not fall, fail, or break down because you are with her. Thank you for your continuous help in her life.

Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

She is healed from the crown of her head to the sole of her feet. She is thoroughly healed with no trace of the disease left in her. Please make her whole just as you made the woman of the issue of blood whole in the bible. I completely trust in your love and in your power. I know that you desire that she will be in good health. I know that you will heal my mother. Thank you for answering my prayers, Jesus.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
