Prayer For Mom In Heaven
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.
Compassionate Father, thank you that you remain the same yesterday, today and forever. As I mourn the loss of my mother, may I find reassurance that she now abides with you. As I experience this unexpected change, may I be strengthened in your unchanging love. You held my mother close and you continue to draw near to me. May my eyes be fixed on the cross, that my gaze would be fixed on the light of your glory through the darkness of this situation. In life and in death, you are Lord of all. To you alone belongs all glory and praise. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Jesus, my Sustainer, I thank you for the unique gifts and abilities that you gave my mother. Throughout her life, she reflected your image in the love that she gave to others. May I be filled with joy from the memories I cherish. Throughout history, you have consoled your people as they mourn. Your people have been filled with hope due to your promise of eternal life. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with me always. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, 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.
God of All Peace, all hope in life and death comes from you. As I walk through grief and sorrow over the passing of my mother, my heart feels far from peaceful. Jesus said that the peace he gives surpasses all understanding. Your peace is the peace that can calm the troubled mind and heart in any situation. May I know your peace as I celebrate the memories of my mother and the life that you gave her. May the love of the Father, the tenderness of the Son, and the presence of the Spirit, bring peace to my soul. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Our old women gods, we ask you! / Our old women gods, we ask you! / Then give us long life together, / May we live until our frosted hair is white / May we live till then. / This life that now we know!
O Lord, my God, you are my refuge and my strength, my ever-present help in times of trouble. I feel adrift in the storm of grief since the death of my mother. Thank you that you always hear the prayers of your people. Hear me today as I cry to you for help. Fill me with your strength, comfort me through your spirit and hold me close to you. May I find deep encouragement in your promise that my mother is with you in paradise. May I praise you in this difficult time. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Precious Holy Spirit, thank you for your endless supply of mercy and grace. My mother's life came to an end with a hope that comes from trusting in your promises. May the sorrow that I feel be transformed into thanksgiving for her life and her love. As I deal with the pain of loss, may I be reminded that death has ultimately lost its sting because of the resurrection of Jesus. May grace, mercy, and peace be with me, from God the Father, and from Jesus Christ, the Son, in truth and love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
