Prayers for Moms
Lord, please help me to raise my child(ren) with You in mind. Help me to teach them the right values and to raise them up to love You, to seek Your heart and to embark on the path that You have laid before them. God, please help me along the path, even as I face difficult patches and navigate uncharted waters. Thank you for the gift of motherhood — and for Your love. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Lord, I thank You for this baby and I give my pregnancy to You, praying that throughout the whole time You will be there to comfort and encourage and strengthen each member of my family. I pray that You would place Your hand of blessing on this little human being that is being formed in my womb… may he or she grow up to know You and may they become a mighty person of God. Thank You for all my children, which have become such a blessing to me – into Your hand I commit myself, my husband, my family and this precious little addition to our home – for which I praise You. Amen.
Trying to Become a Mother
Heavenly Father, You know my deep desire for a little one. A child to love and to hold, to care for, to cherish. Grant that my body may conceive and give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image. Guide me in all my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy and my baby’s birth are in line with Your will. Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer of my heart, mind and spirit. Amen.
Mighty Savior, I pray that as a grandmother, You help me to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. I pray that I remain reverent in the way that I live. Motivate me, oh Lord, to take action! Show me how to best share what I have learned through the years to guide the younger members of my family, and help the younger generations. Burn a fire in my heart for imparting wisdom on others and helping their yoke be easy, until my last breath. Help me be an example to those around me so that they too can be encouraged to live reverently for You in a life of service to others. Amen.
For Grandchildren – Precious Father, thank You for the crowns of my life – my grandchildren. Thank You for blessing me with a family that has given me so much joy in life. I love You with all of my heart, soul and mind and pray that You continue to keep the crowns in my life safe. I pray that You continue to bless each generation in my family like You have blessed me. Amen.
Heavenly Father, I come to you today, humble and exhausted, and ask that you carry my burdens. I pray that you lift my weary spirit and fill me with your love and peace so that I may be restored and renewed in body and mind. Lord, pour your heavenly nourishment into my soul and give me the energy to sustain me in my role as a mother. Amen.
