Prayer For The Departed Mother
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 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.
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.
Creator and Sustainer, my God, thank you that you made the universe and all it contains. We are all made in your image and reflect your attributes. I praise you for the way that my mother demonstrated your love throughout her life. You have promised your children an inheritance of eternal life. I thank you that my mother is now safe in your presence. Fill me with your spirit in my time of need. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, power and strength, be unto you my God forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
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.
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.
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.
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.
