I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a Prayer Guide for Mothers (especially after publishing a Prayer for Fathers last year). And since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, I thought now would be the perfect time to share what I’ve come up with.
As a mother myself, I appreciate all the prayers I can get! If you feel the same way, you can enlist your family to intercede for you with the following scripture-based requests.
A Prayer for Mothers
M is for Ministry
Help Mom recognize motherhood for the high and noble calling it is. May she invest herself fully in training the next generation to love You, LORD, and to serve You wholeheartedly. Multiply her efforts, and extend her reach when she transitions into the role of an older woman, giving biblical counsel and wise instruction to younger wives and mothers. Deuteronomy 11:18-21; Mark 12:30-31; Titus 2:3-5
O is for Orderliness
LORD, I know You are a God of order. Help my mother reflect that part of Your character. For all time remembered, moms have had to juggle multiple responsibilities to keep home and family running smoothly. Help mine discharge those duties with joy and grace, doing everything in a diligent, orderly, and thorough way. 1 Corinthians 14:33, 40; Proverbs 31:10-24; Colossians 3:17, 23-24; Proverbs 21:5
T is for Testimony
God, make my Mom a model of virtuous womanhood. Keep her mindful of the fact that others are watching, particularly the children you’ve entrusted to her care. Grant her the wisdom, discernment, and understanding she’ll need to serve her family well. May she glorify You in all she does and point others to Jesus. Proverbs 2:6; 22:1, 31:25-31; Psalm 119:1-2; Hebrews 12:1; 1 Corinthians 10:31
H is for Help
LORD, You’ve called us to bear one another’s burdens. Open my eyes to ways I can help lighten my mom’s load. Two have a better return for their labor than one does alone. Don’t let pride keep Mom from asking for help when needed or accepting help when offered. Thank YOU for being an ever-present help in trouble & for supplying all we need. Galatians 6:2; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Matthew 7:7-8; Proverbs 29:23; Psalms 46:1; Philippians 4:19
E is for Endurance
God, equip my mother with all the patience she’ll need to do the work you’ve called her to do. Protect her against weariness in well-doing, reminding her of the good harvest that awaits if she doesn’t give up. Renew her strength and re-energize her, so that she can run with endurance the race you’ve marked out for her, keeping her eyes on Jesus. James 1:2-3; Galatians 6:9; Isaiah 40:31; Hebrews 12:1-2
R is for Relationships
Bless Mom’s relationships, LORD. Fortify her family ties. Provide friends who uplift & encourage her. Help her get along with colleagues and coworkers. Most of all, strengthen her relationship to You. Give her a love for Jesus that spills out on everyone she meets. Psalm 128:1-4; Proverbs 17:17; Mark 12:30-31
