Prayer For A Dying Grandmother
Come into my life.
I believe you died and rose from the grave.
I believe you live eternally in heaven.
Cleanse me from all unrighteousness.
Forgive me of all my sins.
Move into my heart.
I make you my Lord and Savior.
Thank you for your sacrifice.
I accept your gift of eternal salvation.
Look with love on grandparents the world over.
They are a source of enrichment
for families and for all of society.
As they grow older,
may they continue to be for their families
strong pillars of Gospel faith,
guardian of noble domestic ideals,
living treasuries of sound religious traditions.
Make them teachers of wisdom and courage,
that they may pass on to future generations the fruits
of their mature human and spiritual experience.
Help families and society
to value the presence and roles of grandparents.
May they never be ignored or excluded,
but always encounter respect and love.
Help them to live serenely and to feel welcomed
in all the years of life which you give them.
Keep them constantly in your care,
accompany them on their earthly pilgrimage,
and by your prayers, grant that all families
may one day be reunited in our heavenly homeland,
where you await all humanity
for the great embrace of life without end.
Dear God, please bless my grandparents.
Thank you for the life they gave my parents
and for the life, they give to me.
For the ways they helped me and made me strong, I give thanks.
For the ways, they love me no matter what, I rejoice.
For the ways, they have paved the road
that leads me here, I am grateful.
Let them grow in wisdom and joy in life.
Let them find peace and rest from their work.
Let them be healed of every sickness and pain.
And let them see with their own eyes your glory
and the love of their children and grandchildren.
Bless them always until they come to rest in you.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Prayer in Suffering
O Lord, your sorrowing Mother stood by your cross; help us in our sorrows to share your sufferings.
Like the seed buried in the ground, you have produced the harvest of eternal life for us; make us always dead to sin and alive to God.
Shepherd of all, in death you remained hidden from the world; teach us to love our hidden spiritual life with you and the Father.
In your role as the new Adam, you went down among the dead to release all the just there since the beginning; grant that all who are dead in sin may hear your voice and rise to new life.
Son of the living God, you have allowed us through baptism to be buried with you; grant that we may also rise with you in baptism and walk in newness of life. Amen.
Oh God, we come before you with a request for healing for our beloved grandma. We know that it is within Your power to make her well again, but we also know that to everything there is a season, and sometimes we must simply trust You.
Still, we want to make our petition known, Lord. If it be Your will, we ask that You pour Your healing oil on our grandma that she can once again be healedand whole.
We ask this in Jesus' name.
We thank You, God, for all of the grandmothers who are here today.
Their love and wisdom have helped to shape us into who we are,
and we have learned about how to love You and how to love each other
through their example.
Bless each of them with long life and show us all how to
honor them in ways that would let them know how much they mean
to us and that would also be pleasing in Your sight.
Dear Lord Jesus, I do thank You for my lovely life and for the wonderful way that You have promised to be with me each day. Thank You, for bringing me safely through another night and for the gift of a new and wonderful day. Great is Your faithfulness.
Lord, I pray that as I prepare to get out of bed and get washed and dressed, that You would strengthen my legs and be my support as I go about my daily duties. Give me I pray, the strength to busy myself in my little kitchen and keep me from any dangers that may arise.
Be with me I pray, as I go to and from the shops, and I ask that in Your kindness You would put those people in my path Whom You choose. And help me to be a worthy witness of Your grace and kindness to all I meet, not only in what I say but in the way that I think and act.
Thank You for my wonderful children and for each of their lives, and thank You especially Lord, for the precious grandchildren that You have placed in my life, and for granting me the joy of seeing them start to grow up and develop into the little characters that have so blessed my soul. Lord, endue them with Your heavenly grace, enrich them with a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus, may each one grow in grace and in a knowledge of their Saviour and finally Lord, bring each one home to rest securely in Your everlasting arms.
Lord, I am not getting any younger, but I trust You to carry me on eagles wings and give me a song of praise in my heart throughout the day. May I rest in Your love and abide in Your grace until You choose to take me to be with Yourself, for my times are in Your hands. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear God, I just want to bring my precious Grandma to You as she is quite sick and I just ask Lord, that You would touch her with Your healing hands and restore her to full health and strength. Lord, I also know that she is getting older and her health has been deteriorating quite rapidly over the past few months.
Father, I know that our times are in Your hands and for everything there is a season, and I know Lord, that life does not continue indefinitely, nevertheless I do pray that she may be restored to good health.
Be with her Lord in her sickness, and may she feel Your presence with her. Provide for all her needs I pray, and I ask Lord that the doctors would identify the right medicines to help speed her recovery. Keep her close to You in Your loving arms, and may she find her rest in You especially during this period of sickness. I ask this in Jesus' name.
