Prayer for a Sick Mom

(a prayer from a daughter or son that their mom would know God’s presence and recover)

Dear Father,

I pray for my lovely mum, for you to hold her, keep her and restore her at this trying time. She is always looking out for others, caring for her family and watching over her friends. Please help us all now to be her guardians. May she reap in abundance all the love she has given out.

Come surround her with your arms of healing, lift her heart to find moments of joy in every day and keep hope burning alive in her soul. Cover her as she sleeps with the encircling power of Christ. Pour into her the oil of His healing grace, and clothe her with her inheritance as a child of God. She is so precious to us, yet even more so to you, her Abba Father. Lord, we look to you for her restoration.

In the powerful name of Jesus we pray.

Prayer for healing and strength

Dear God,

Lift her high on eagles wings, fill her mind with your truth and cover her heart with hope.
Protect her always, may she feel safe and secure besides you. Walk with her through each moment. Come be strength when she feels weak, be counsel when she needs comfort. Help her to rest, to lay down when she needs to and allow others to take the strain.

I pray that throughout this hard time she may know our love for her and Your love for her.

traditional prayer for the sick

N., I lay my hands upon you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, beseeching our Lord Jesus Christ to sustain you with his presence,
to drive away all sickness of body and spirit,
and to give you that victory of life and peace which will enable you to serve him both now and evermore.
