Prayer For Memory Loss

Heavenly Father, it is so hard to come to terms with therealization thatour loved ones have been struck down with some sort of dementia or loss of memory. And Lord it seems even harder to have to accept that the personYouloved so dearly has become a stranger in Your midst.. with little or no recollection of who you are.

We pray for all who are having to go through this painful experience, and the grief and loss they feel,asthe one they loved so dearly has become estranged and distant from them. We pray for strength andsupport forall who are having to mourn this tragic loss, despite their physical presence.. and ask that You would comfort and strengthen all in this difficult situation.

But we also pray for those who have lost their memory and the internal confusion and difficulty that must go with losingonesmemories.. forgetting who you are and not even recognizing those that are your close loved ones. We pray that You would draw very close to all who are suffering memory loss at this time, and we pray that You would touch the inner reaches of their heart and mind and give them the special comfort and precious peace that only comes from You. This we ask in the name of Jesus our Saviour and God,


Dear Father!You know the difficulties I am facing in my studies. I am in a helpless state! I come to You seeking Your help and guidance.Lord You have said, "I will instruct You and teach You in the way You should go; I will guide You with my eye" yes Lord! be with me and give me an understanding heart so that I can grasp my lessons and memories them. Lord! it is nothing for You to help a weak person! My mind is too weak and I have a very poor memory power. I forget whatever I learn and I lose all my confidence. Lord! I plead with You to strengthen my memory power and grant me Your abundant grace so that I write my exams with confidence. Let Your power engulf me Lord and let every unwanted fear flee from me! Send me help from above and make me a success in life. I know You'll do it because Your love for me is incomparable. Thanks for listening to me. In Jesus' name, I pray.Amen.

Dear heavenly Father, though Isaiah used the image somewhat metaphorically, mothers and fathers do forget the children they have brought into the world. I know this quite well, having lived through the journey of watching my dad forgetting my name, then my face, then everything about me. The process was very painful, yet you met us time and again, with your mercy and grace.

I am so thankful that the gospel is a living hope, not sentimental hype. I am so thankful that long after dad forgot you, you never forgot him. I am so thankful that dad's memory has been healed, and that he now knows and remembers perfectly. Above all, I am envious that he now knows you perfectly, while I am bound to the world of knowing-in-part.

As someone who found you to be the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, in a story of dementia and Alzheimer's, it's an honor to pray for others in that same painful journey. Father, grant spouses and children, family members and friends, a profound sense of your presence, and courage to love well.

Grant them freedom to grieve their mounting sense of loss; the grace to accept the changes in their loved one; and power to stay as present as possible, when doing so becomes increasingly difficult. Grant them wisdom for each stage of the journey, trustworthy and compassionate medical care, and the necessary financial and emotional resources.

Lastly, Father, I pray you will help all of us, impacted by memory loss, to treasure being known and remembered by you. If we should forget you, in our journey to life in the new heaven and new earth, we will never outlive your love and grace for us. The only things you're not going to remember, is our sins against us. Hallelujah, many times over. So very Amen we pray, in Jesus' strong and loving name.

Dear heavenly Father, You know the struggle I am having to remember and retain the things that I have learned in my personal study-time as well as my work situation, and how it is becoming such a worry to me.

Dear Lord, I love my Mom so much but it is so sad to see the way that she has been losing her memory over the last months, and is getting to the point where she is becoming so confused that she often does not remember our names or even recognize who we are.
Lord this degenerative process and loss of memoryisso painful.. and at times I just want to sob my eyes out as my own precious Mom is becoming so frail and vulnerable. And yet as I watch her I also have a heart filled with thanksgiving and praise, that You ordained that she would be my mother and I would be her child and I praise and thank You that the day is coming when we will be together with glorified bodies and living in Your presence. Thank You for the blessed hope that we have in You, and the glorious day whenYouhave promised to wipe away all our tears from our eyes and heal all our pain.
How I praise and thank You for that blessed hope..but in themeantimeI ask that You would give us all the grace and patience to love my precious mother through her failing memory and may Your joy and peace remain in her heart

It is so hard Lord to see my dad starting to become so forgetful and seems to be losing his memory, and I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to prevent this from advancing any further.. and even to reverse the problem.
Lord, You are the one Who designed our minds and our bodies and You are the only one that can truly help him and heal him at this time. Open our eyes to discover if there is anything that we can do to address this issue whether it is with diet or exercise or medication or anything else. Give us the wisdom we pray to help my dad, as we don't want this to advance any further it is so painful.
I pray that You would draw very close to him throughout both the day and the night-time hours. Guide his hesitating steps, keep him from stumbling, protect him when he is in unfamiliar surroundings and prevent him from becoming agitated, upset and frustrated, when he is unable to clearly communicate his needs and wishes to us.
Help my dad.. and all of us, to be willing to accept the advancing years and the deterioration of our health and failing memories. May the angel of Your presence encamp around him and may he feel You every closer to himself in his advancing years in Jesus name we pray,
