Prayer For Dying Mother In Law
O Jehovah, my God, every time I go to visit my mother, she puts on her best face and still tries to take care of me. God, even when she is dying, she is trying to be strong for me. I pray that You give her the reassurance she needs to know that she doesn't have to act strong. I pray that she be comfortable and at peace. Lord, thank You for all that You do for her and our family. Amen.
Jesus, I pray that You grant inner peace and calm to my mother in her final days. As her body gets weaker and her sickness gets worse, Lord, let her spirit be still and confident in You. Death can be so scary, but God, You promise your believers eternal life. In You, there is no fear of death and no power in Hell. May my mother feel that freedom from fear. Help her be calm and serene. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
Everlasting God, since I cannot be with my mother in her dying days, I ask that You make Your presence known to her, God. Let her know that while I am not there, You are there and You can provide ultimate comfort and love. Be her respite. Allow her to find joy in her final moments on earth. God, You are the ultimate provider. Thank You for being there for my mother in life and in death. Amen.
Father, my mother's mind has been decaying for quite some time. She rarely knows where she is and even less often knows who I am. God, I ask that somehow before she goes to be with You, You allow her to know how much we love her and how much she will be missed. God, allow her to die with the knowledge and satisfaction that she made a difference in her children's lives. Let her feel that she was unbelievably loved. Lord, protect her alwaysnow and forever. Amen.
Heavenly Father, I ask that You bless the time that I have left with my mother. When we are together, God, be present with us. Let us not bicker about useless things or find faults in each other's actions and thoughts. But God, let us be together in communion. Let us spend the time we have left loving, caring, and simply being with the other. Lord, give me the patience and humility to not be defensive or irritated. God, I want to soak in every second that I can with her. Thank You. Amen.
Gracious God, give strength to my mother. She is brave and beautiful and strong, and she is desperately in need of You. As her body weakens, God, let her lean on Your strength for the time she has left. Let her leave this world feeling strong in You and ready for what comes next. God, only You can be her strength now. There is no more earthly healing that can be done. Let her be Yours. Amen.
My dear sweet heavenly father, I come to you today
with faith and hope; I ask, send an angel Mama's way.
I know her time is near and soon you'll take her home
to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam.
It's hard to watch her suffer and slowly fade away.
Help me, God, to understand; give me strength, I pray.
She means so much to all of us; forgive me for my fears.
Life will never be the same without her presence here.
My mother is my angel; she taught me how to love
and told me about you, Lord, and heaven up above.
When she crosses over and steps into the light,
tell her that I love her and when the time is right,
meet me at the pearly gates where everything's brand new.
We'll walk across God's meadow lands where skies are always blue.
Somewhere beyond the sunset every now and then,
I pray she watches over me until we meet again.
My mother suffers from a very rare form of cancer. I wrote this to help ease the pain I'm feeling watching her suffer. She is not just a mom; she's my very best friend. She's never let me down. I believe in heaven and I know where she is going, but it
still doesn't make this any easier for me. I hope others facing a loss of a parent can read this and find comfort in knowing that life after life is real, heaven is real and one day we will all be together again.
