Prayer For A Mother Who Has Passed Away
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the name above every other name. As I mourn the passing of my mother, may I find safety and comfort in your name. May your voice soothe my pain and strengthen me in my weakness. May your promises provide hope in my distress and stability in my confusion. May my mother live in perfect peace with you for eternity. As she sees you face to face, may she be transformed in your likeness. May grace and peace be mine in abundance, through you my Lord. In your mighty name, Amen.
Father of Compassion, hear my prayer and provide comfort to me during this time of shock and grief. My mother was your child, you knew her from birth and she died in your loving arms. Help me to trust in the name of Jesus who conquered Satan, sin and death. Help me to live a life of faith with my hope set in your eternal life. Help me to focus on your blessings during this time of loss. May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable in your sight O Lord. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Lord Jesus, my Refuge and my Redeemer, you humbled yourself by becoming human and submitting yourself to death on the cross so that all who believe in you shall not perish but have eternal life. I thank you that my mother, while no longer with us in this life, will live forever with you. You conquered the grave and opened the gates of heaven. I entrust my mother into your gracious care, and look to you with faith and hope in everlasting life, to comfort me in my grief and pain. In your powerful name, Amen.
Lord Jesus, my Savior, you are the firstborn from the dead. After your death on the cross, you rose from the dead and left your tomb. As I grieve the loss of my mother, thank you for the hope and assurance that comes from your resurrection. You conquered the grave and ascended into heaven where you are interceding for your people. I thank you that my mother is in your presence now and that one day we will be reunited. May the hope of eternity bring comfort to all who mourn the loss of my mother. In your mighty name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of earthly life, in particular for the life of my mother. Thank you for all the years I enjoyed with her. I praise you that she stood with me through the good times and the bad times. I cherish the memories of times of joy and times of sorrow. As she is now at rest with you, I thank you for the hope of a future in your presence that we will share together. Now may you, the Lord of Peace, give me peace at all times and in every way. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
O Lord my God, I thank you that you are the Lord of life. The life of my mother was a gift from you. She received love as your child and I am grateful that she poured out that love to me. I look forward to the day when Jesus returns to bring the resurrection of the dead. I await an eternity spent in your presence with my mother and all your people. I look with hope to a future with no sin, pain or death. As my mother encounters you face to face, I ask that you would bring me comfort. Amen.
God of Immeasurable Mercies, by your power, Jesus conquered death and ascended in glory. I entrust my mother into your care, in the name of Jesus Christ. As my mother has departed to live for eternity with you, I thank you for the memories I have. I thank you that she was made in your image and reflected your love. You are the Lord of all life, you brought my mother into existence and you have now called her home. I pray that she will enjoy the fullness of your presence through all eternity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
We beseech thee, O Lord, in thy mercy, to have pity on the soul of thy handmaid; do thou, who hast freed her from the perils of this mortal life, restore to her the portion of everlasting salvation. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
