A mother’s job is no easy task. Here are 13 prayers for moms that are overwhelmed and weary.
Fill My Heart Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, please take hold of me and steady my shaken spirit. I am in pieces and on the verge of falling apart. My days are so filled with things to do that contribute to taking care of others, that I consistently fail to take care of me. I feel like an invisible, shell of a person. I need you to make me whole again. Energize me and create in me a strong spirit. Fill my heart with Your peace and give me an inner joy that brightens my soul. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
Conquer My Frustration Prayer
Dear Loving God, I come to You now asking You to help me through this season of my life. I am completely exhausted and overwhelmed. Help me to see my blessings through this emotionally draining time. My hands are so full that I don’t think I can hold one more thing this world has to throw at me. Lord, I need You to intercede. Use Your Power to conquer my frustration and turn it into joy. Take my tears and give me the strength to stand tall. In Your loving name, I pray. Amen.
Revive My Spirit Prayer
Sweet Heavenly Father, I ask that You take my tiredness far, far away from me. I have an excessive amount of questions and requests all day long at work, and by the time I come home, I’m filled with weariness. Please revive my spirit and energy. Put delight in my soul and cheerfulness in my step, so that the goodness You’ve planted in me can shine for my children. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
Dear Lord, today I sat and cried (again) about all the things in life that overwhelm me. There are so many chores and lists to do every day, that come with being a busy mom. I need You to take these looming pressures away from me. Help me to see our schedule one day at a time and encourage me to become more organized. Lord, I need Your guidance and support. Give me a calm spirit in moments of stress and allow me to feel Your constant presence. I Jesus’s name I pray. Amen.
Motivate My Spirit Prayer
Mighty Father, I cry out to You to take these stressful feelings away from my being. I am a tired mother who needs to be efficient and active for my children. Reach down and take out all these anxieties, angry feelings, and frustrations and do away with them. Give me a motivated spirit and help me to only focus on those things which are lovely, pure, and admirable so that You can be seen in all that I do. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
Empower Me Prayer
Almighty God, I am so overwhelmed with all of the obligations of being a mother in this modern-day world, and I worry all the time. Worrying was never meant to exist, so that means I am carrying a weight I was never meant to carry, and I want to lay it at Your feet. Help me to do that. I tried before, but I guess, I never really left it behind. Help me to, decisively, unstrap it from my waist, unchain it from my ankles and completely leave it with You. Empower me to forever break free from these oppressive thoughts. In Your precious name, I pray. Amen
Remind Me Prayer
Dear Sweet Lord, help me to see the beauty in a busy life. Remind me of the bliss that can be found during the most active of days. Help me to remember that the feeling of being overwhelmed doesn’t last forever because You made me an overcomer. When times get rocky, remind me that I’m unbreakable, and when days become exasperating, remind me that I’m determined. During moments of sadness, if I lose my joy, remind me I’m a mother. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.
Gracious God, as I am on my knees, I want to thank you for the weariness of a long day. Thank you for the obligations and duties I have. Thank you for the lists of errands to run, chores to do, and tasks to fulfill. Thank you for all of these things because it means that I have so much in this wonderful life to take care of. You have favored me to give me these precious responsibilities, and You’ve placed Your trust in me to take care of Your children. Help me to take on the challenges of each day with these words in my heart. In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen.
Protect Me Prayer
Father in Heaven, please protect my mind and body from being taken over with weariness and anxiety. Lord, I need to be upbeat and tireless for my children. Give me the lively personality I long for. Sprinkle me with motivation and charisma so I surpass this level of tiredness. Give health to my bones and make my heart at peace so it will give life to my body. Erase the overwhelming feelings that blanket my mind and weigh me down. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
Let Your Light Shine Prayer
Dear Father, on days when I’m overwhelmed and drained, help me see the light that shines from You. Let Your spirit be in the background of all the problems throughout the day, brightly glowing. In all Your radiance, from behind the scenes, I want Your light to completely outline the problem in a perfect circle. Encompass my worry with Your two hands, with Your control, and plainly and perfectly show me that You’ve got it under control. Tell me You’re in charge, and I have no power over what happens. Make me understand the outcome is up to You anyway. In Your lovely name, I pray. Amen.
Weathering the Days Prayer
Gracious Lord, please help me pass over this wearisome time in my life. Help me to weather the days, but at the same time learn from my trials and find opportunities to witness for You. Supply me with the ability to stand with You and fight my battles as they arrive, but if I’m still not strong enough, please fight for me. Lead me through this and bring me out on the other side, a winner. Give my body rest and please supply my needs as we work on this side by side. In Your name, I ask these things. Amen
Keep My Mind Clear Prayer
Dear Lord, take my overwhelming thoughts and destroy the roots that cause them. Stop all of this weariness and provide me the strength to stand up against it. All it does is take away the good and replace it with the bad. I beg of You to erase these negative images, feelings, and made-up situations once and for all. Keep my mind clear, only thinking of what is correct, and layer my thoughts with Your grace so that each speck of my thinking is covered in Your will. I ask these things in Your name. Amen.
Clothe Me in Stillness Prayer
Christ Jesus, please give my mind rest. It is overtaken with worries from the day, and I need to put those thoughts behind me. Help me to have an evening filled with laughter, contentment, and happiness as I look into the eyes of my children. Help me to show excitement about their day and be the mom that praises and sends encouragement all while enjoying their company. Lord, ease my overwhelmed spirit and weary body. Send down Your peace and clothe me in stillness. In Your name, I pray. Amen.
