Here is a prayer especially for mothers and grandmothers because you are so deserving of blessing and honor for who you are and for all you do. No matter what your age, single or married, this prayer for blessing is for every good work, every good word, and for every act of love you have ever offered on behalf of the ones you love.
I’m sharing this prayer again for mothers and grandmothers not just because it’s almost Mother’s Day. This past year has been a difficult one for everyone, including moms and grandmoms. But no matter what is going on in our lives or in our world, these women need our blessing and honor in pandemic proportions.
Some of you have been “socially distanced” from your mothers or grandmothers, only sending and receiving long-distance hugs. And some of you may just now be emerging from your shelters of protection, eager to enjoy Mother’s Day with the ones you love this year.
Some may not consider these women “heroes” on the same level as those who are health workers, doctors, nurses, and essential service personnel on the front lines of disease. And moms and grandmoms surely don’t consider themselves in that way, either. But they, like so many others, have juggled multiple responsibilities, packing in even more hours with their husband and children throughout the past year, many trying to maintain balance as a single mom. Some are still dealing with loss, including unemployment.
But they will always be our heroes, and they deserve our praise, blessing, and encouragement at all times! Don’t forget to pray for them!
A Prayer of Blessing for Mothers and Grandmothers
Bless every mother and every grandmother with the finest of your spiritual blessings today. Confirm in her heart and spirit the work of her hands and the love that she has so freely given to those children under Your care. Validate her worth daily so she has no reason to doubt whether she is loved, valued, and cherished in the eyes of her Heavenly Father.
Help Worry and Fear to Disappear
Create in her a deep sense of your protection and trust, so that worry and fear will disappear as she places her loved ones into Your care. Let her know that every prayer she has prayed and every encouraging word she has spoken on behalf of her children/grandchildren has been transformed into sweet, fragrant offerings before Your throne.
Whisper Sweet Words to Her
Whisper deep within her spirit the sweet words she longs to hear from You. Show her that nothing can ever separate her from Your love. Help her to nestle daily into the promises of Your Word, standing with faith on the things You declare are true. Let her know that You reward faithfulness, but that true success doesn’t lie in her accomplishments or accolades.
Let her rest in the knowledge that she has done all she can—and that she and those she loves—truly belong to you. Bless her with a servant spirit so she can teach her own the joy of hearing one day, “Well done!”
Calm Every Doubt
Remove any guilt, false or real, and replace them with Your amazing grace and forgiveness. Help her see her children or grandchildren through Your eyes, knowing that in Your hands is the safest place they can ever be. Calm every doubt, and strengthen her confidence in the Only One who can bring good out of any situation.
Give Her Wisdom and Guidance
Teach her that she cannot meet every need of her child’s life, but that You can. Give her wisdom and guidance to train those precious children in Your path, and then to leave the results to You, Lord. Help her to love without limitations, to pray without ceasing, and to live without regrets.
Bless her with such a sweet dependency on You that she will acknowledge her inadequacies, yet recognize and accept Your reward of praise—and Your sense of pleasure in having her as Your own beloved child.
Show Her Your Faithful Character
Where prayers may still seem unanswered, and dreams are not yet realized, open her eyes to see beyond this world to a Hope that never disappoints. Show her Your faithful character: a Father who will never leave or abandon her.
Give her courage to persevere even in the most difficult moments of her life. Bless her with honesty, integrity, and a playfulness that shows her children she is human, yet unswerving in her desire know You.
May Her Life Overflow with Blessings
Let her joy be contagious; let her passion be pure; and let her life overflow with all the blessings she deserves—on special days, and on every day of her life.
In Jesus’ name,
Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise (Proverbs 31:28-31 NLT).
As mothers or grandmothers, we all struggle with inadequacy, doubt, and fear. Are we/did we do enough for our children? Do they know we love them? What could we have done better? How can we get them through these fearful times? Know that Jesus loves and cherishes you, and that your work is never in vain.
While you may never receive all the appreciation you deserve here on earth, God knows. He will applaud you in eternity as you stand before Him and hear His “Well Done!” You bring pleasure to Him, just being His child and doing what you can as a mom or grandmom.
