In this article, we will dive into 11 powerful prayers for sick moms and how we can use Bible verses to pray over them as well.
I have a really close relationship with my mom. She’s my best friend and biggest cheerleader. I love to bless her and pray for her. But when she gets sick, it’s heartbreaking for me. There have been a few scares when we have had to take her to the hospital.
It was just a few years ago when she was deathly sick and we took her to the ER. Long story short, we took her just in time before her appendix ruptured. I remember it being 3 am at the hospital praying for the surgery to go well.
It was hard, but praise God, momma made it through. I know God was with her. So, today if you are facing a similar situation with your mom, whether it’s an emergency or chronic sickness.
Tips for Praying for Healing for your Mom
Like all written prayers, I find it’s important that we go over some important tips.
- Personalize it: The prayers below are generic in nature. This is because I don’t know your mom and what condition she is in. So, please personalize the prayer. I recommend reading the prayer first and then adding what you feel is right.
- Be Specific: Similar to what I mentioned above, but go deeper. Be specific when you are praying to the Lord. For example, if your mom is battling arthritis in the hands. Specifically pray for healing of her joints, and that her hands would be pain free.
- Let it Come from the Heart: God doesn’t desire to for us to recite written prayers and call it a day. He wants prayers that come from the heart. So, make sure when you are reading through these prayers that you connect with them on a heart level and not a “oh, that sounds good”
- Get Inspired: Did you know you can actually just read these prayers and use them as inspiration or a guide to help you pray on your own? That’s right…let them be the diving board that helps you jump into a pool of God’s presence.
Bible Verses to Use While Praying for Your Sick Mom
Did you know that one of the names of God is Jehovah Rapha? It mean’s “I AM your Healer” Throughout the Bible, we see many stories and accounts of God’s healing touch. And we know God hasn’t changed (Hebrews 13:8)
I thought it might be nice to share some Bible verses you can use while you are praying for your sick mom. If you can pray with her that would be outstanding and I encourage you to pray these verses over her. God’s Word is powerful!
