Prayer For Mother In Law
God of Enduring Faithfulness, I ask that You reveal Yourself even more to my mother-in-law. You have revealed Yourself in creation, and You reveal Yourself in Your Word. I also know that Your people love You because You have loved us first. I ask that You give my mother-in-law an increased love for You and Your Word. May it shine out of every facet of her life. Give her a deep love for You and a solid routine of spending time with You. May she have such an obvious quality of godliness in everything she does. Amen.
Lord, our Peace-Bringer, You are the God who gives good gifts to His children. I ask that You give an increase of wisdom to my mother-in-law. Lord give her the ability to make prudent decisions in times where discernment is needed. In cases of conflict, I ask that she rightfully arbitrates right from wrong. Help her to be a peacemaker and someone who brings people together. Thank You for the example that You set before us in Jesus, who reconciled us to You by His death. Amen.
My Father God, You have blessed me greatly with a second mother. I celebrate my mother-in-law's life today. She is one-of-a-kind, and her presence has added to my life. Of all the gifts she is to receive today, I thank You especially for the gift of life for this very day. Her every breath is sustained by You, and all the days of her life were recorded in Your book before any one of them came to be. Every good and perfect gift comes from You. Amen.
Compassionate and Gracious God, nothing escapes Your notice, and Your care for us is incomprehensible. I pray for my mother-in-law and the situation she is in. I ask that You turn her financial circumstances around and provide for her. Lord, You know what she needs, and You say You care. Thank You for how You have provided for her so far. Lord, in this time of financial trial, may You supply her needs for tomorrow. Keep her from worry and point her to wise action. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Jesus, my Savior, You know our lives from the dramatic to the everyday. Lord, I ask for my mother-in-law's everyday hobbies. May they be a positive creative outlet for her. I pray that this continues to be a way for her to relieve stress and enjoy Your creation. When she is creative, she reflects the way You are creative and thereby glorifies You. I ask that You bless her in her hobbies. Thank You for her and the blessing she is to others. Amen.
Father in Heaven, You walk beside us at all times. I ask that You be a shield and defender for my mother-in-law as she embarks on this journey. Thank You that she is able to travel. I ask that, in her journey, You give her safety. I ask that the logistics of her trip are provided. I ask that she not come into any danger but instead that this trip becomes a blessing to her. Furthermore, in her traveling, may she have time to invest in her relationship with You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Sovereign Lord, thank You that You are with us in all stages of life. I thank You that my mother-in-law now can enjoy retirement. I pray that this will be a wonderful time in her life. Lord, all of our lives are valuable and worthwhile for You. Show her new ways in which she can glorify You and show love to those around her during this chapter of her life. Grow her in wisdom and knowledge of You. Let her be able to take pleasure in the freedom and time she now has. Help her to be involved in things that are worthwhile and wholesome. All this I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
Dear Father God, thank You that You were the one that instituted the role of the family in our lives, where children are brought up in a secure home, and where loving parents provide for their children in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.
Thank You also for the wider family and today Lord, I particularly want to bring before You the role of mothers-in- law within the family unit.
Sadly Lord the role of mother-in-law has too often become a target of cruel jokes and yet I praise You for the grace and wisdom of this special person within the extended family, who can be such a source of encouragement and wisdom, both to the parents and to their grand-children.
Give grace and wisdom to all women who have been called into the important role of Mother-in-law. Endue each one with godly virtue and gracious wisdom, so that they may to know when to offer wise counsel, while having the discernment to know when to quietly withdraw.
I pray that You would curb any critical attitude they may have towards their daughter-in law or son-in-law, but rather I pray that the role of mother-in-law may increasingly become a be a source of great help, valued encouragement and gracious wisdom. This I ask in Jesus' name,
