In this article, we will look at 12 powerful prayers for mom that you can pray. These prayers will inspire your time with God and help you cover your mom.
Moms can be some of the most wonderful people in our lives. Me personally, I have been blessed with a great mom. She has done so much for everyone in the family.
And let’s be real: being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world. You are a mom 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You don’t get to clock out of being a mom. I what Italian actress Sophia Loren says about being a mom, “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
Therefore I think prayers for mom are an excellent way to show your appreciation and love for her. You can pray about many things, from asking God to give her strength or help with tough decisions, to thanking Him for how much he has blessed you because she’s been there every step of the way.
No matter the reason, I think it’s important that we cover our mothers. But before we get started, I always like to go over some tips on written prayers.
Helpful Tip for Praying for Your Mom
True and powerful prayer comes from the heart. Reciting someone else’s prays may be good, but if it’s not heartfelt and personal, you’re just speaking empty words to the Lord. God wants you to get personal when you pray.
I like to look at it this way. When you get a birthday card that only has a signature on it. You think little of it. Even if the manufacture writes a nice poem on it.
But when you receive a birthday card that someone writes a personal birthday blessing or prayer. Suddenly, this means something to you. It’s from someone’s heart to yours. That’s how prayer is, too. God wants to connect with your heart.
This doesn’t mean written prayers have no value. All it means is that you want to pray in a way that you are connected emotionally to your prayer. Here are some helpful tips to do that with written prayers.
- Personalize and get specific – I don’t know details about your mom, but you do! Use those details in your prayers. For example, if your mom is traveling. Don’t just pray a generic prayer for safe travels, but go into details about her trip with the Lord.
- Don’t rush it – It’s ok to linger in prayer. If you have an extra few minutes, take it. Ask the Holy Spirit to highlight or bring to your memory something you should pray for your mom for.
- Pray together – If possible, ask your mom to pray with you. This can be a powerful time of connection for both your mom and you. Plus, the Bible says that when two or more are gathered that He is in our midst! (Matthew 18:20)
