Seeing your mom who took care of you when you got sick as a little kid fall ill is one of the hardest things in life because all you want to do is take it away. Here are 25 powerful prayers for a sick mom, including images you can print to use and share.
A Prayer for Physical Healing
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, my mom has been so sick lately. She needs Your miraculous, restorative hand to reach down and touch her body. Give her the healing she needs to overcome this sickness and fully recover. It is taking such a toll on her and I am beginning to worry, Lord. Please intervene soon. You are the Great Physician, Jesus, and I know that You can do all things. I am trusting in You to cure my mom. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Deteriorating Mental Health
Precious Holy Spirit, I pray that You would be with my mom during the scary time as she is facing a new mental battle. Precious Holy Spirit, as You know, her mental health has been deteriorating over the last few months. I pray that You would miraculously restore her to full mental fitness. I think of how You healed the man possessed by Legion and am comforted by how much more powerful You are than anything we will ever face. We are not ready for our mother’s mind to leave us, precious Holy Spirit. If it is Your will that her mind leaves us, please give us peace with this new reality and guide us in how we care for her. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Unity
Lord of the Highest Heavens, I pray that You would restore unity to our family. My mother is sick, and I know that nothing pains her more than when her children are not getting along. Lord, put it in all of our hearts to come together, to put aside our differences, to swallow our pride and unite for the sake of our mother’s last months, weeks, or days. Put kind words in our mouths, and smiles on our faces. Open our hearts and our arms towards each other. She could leave us at any time, and we need Your divine intervention to give her the gift of a loving, devoted, cohesive family. Give her the joy of seeing her children united around her. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Financial Stability
Lord Jesus, our Merciful and Faithful High Priest, I know that my mom has been facing a difficult financial situation because she is sick. Prescriptions, co-pays, and other bills are adding up, and she hasn’t been able to work her normal schedule. I pray, Lord Jesus, for a miracle. I pray that she would be able to make ends meet. I pray that she is not so overwhelmed that she fails to communicate with us about how much help she needs. We cannot help her if she doesn’t tell us what and how much she needs, Lord Jesus. Please quickly help us get a plan together to get the money situation under control so she can focus on getting well. She needs to heal, Lord Jesus, not worry about money. Please be with her in this way. Ease her stress and calm her mind so that all of her energy can go towards healing her body. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for My Mother’s Empty Nest
God of Immeasurable Mercies, I praise You that You care so much for my mother. I know You love her deeply, God. God, I pray that You heal her body and free her of her sickness. She has dedicated so much of her life to raising her children. Now that we are grown, my mother continues to feel sadness and loss because we no longer are in her house and we have lives of our own. Now that she is sick, this sadness and loss weigh so much more heavily on her. Please restore her back to health, and then help her create a wonderfully vibrant and full life for herself. Guide her to meaningful activities that nourish her soul. Make this part of her life just as fulfilling as when she was raising us. Help me be a good son/daughter and schedule calls on my calendar with my mother so that I don’t forget to regularly connect with her. Thank You in advance, Jesus, that You will do all these things and more. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against Loneliness
Father of Compassion, I pray that you would restore my mother back to health. Now that she is sick, the loneliness she typically feels is much more severe and she is really down. My mother’s friends are dying, and she has hardly any good friends left. The friends she has left have their own lives, and she is often alone. Please sit with my mother, Father. Hold her hand and heal her. Indwell Your Holy Spirit in her and radiate Your presence from her. Rejuvenate her health and fill her with Your joy, so that she can feel she is not alone. Surround her and wrap her, Lord, in Your never-ending love. I pray she feels well again soon, and that when she is alone she would know nothing of the feelings of loneliness because of her sweet fellowship with You. I pray that You would give her friends and family more time to visit as well. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against Boredom During Sickness
Maker of Heaven and Earth, I pray that You would be with my mom as she battles boredom while she is trying to get better. Getting older has forced her to slow down, and there are many days she does not feel well. She is often tired and does not want to do much. She spends a lot of time watching TV or playing games on her phone. Now that she has gotten sick, she is miserable in her boredom, and she seems to have given up on life. It must be difficult for her, Lord. Give me the grace to understand how hard it must be for her, and patience with her when she complains. Give me the thoughts and words to guide her to activities she can do while she is recuperating, and those she can do after she gets better to make this last chapter of her life one filled with meaning. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Rest
Jesus, my Savior, please be with my mother. She is always working and has literally worked herself sick. She needs rest, Jesus. I pray that You would give her the time she needs to be able to take care of herself and rejuvenate her body and mind. I pray that things would slow down so that she recuperates. Please lead her and guide her into a season of fruitful and peaceful relaxation and self-care. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Willingness to Go to the Doctor
Lord, Chain-Breaker, please convince my mom that she needs to go to the doctor. She has been sick for so long and has neglected her health. She can be stubborn at times, Lord, and refuses to go see a doctor. I have done all I can to convince her to go. It is up to You now, Lord, to persuade her that she needs to go to the doctor, and soon. Please humble her, take away all fear that she might be feeling, and give me the words to overcome all of her objections. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Wisdom for Doctors
God of Loving Devotion, thank You that my mom is finally willing to go to the doctor to see what has been making her so sick. I pray now that You would grant patience to the doctors so that they listen to my mother instead of trying to quickly get through the appointment with her. Give them the wisdom to figure out what is wrong with my mom. I pray that all the right tests would be run and that they would give a clear picture of what needs to be done for my mom to be cured and return to a state of wellness. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Medicine to Work
Oh God of my Salvation, I pray that You would be with the medicine my mom has to take over the next few weeks as she tries to heal. Help her to remember to take it every day, and I pray that it would do the job of healing her body. Thank You, Jesus, that she was able to get the medicine she needed, now I pray that it would work. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against Side Effects of Medicine
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, I pray against the side effects of the medicine that my mom has to take. I have read they can be brutal, and I know she is scared. I pray that You would ease her pain and take away her fear. Make the drugs effective and the side effects at a minimum. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Plea for Mercy
God of Mercy and Love, I pray that You would spare my mother. She means so much to me and to so many people. I am not sure what any of us would do without her. She is in such a dire state and we are fearful she will leave us in the world. Please miraculously cure her. Just as You healed those who were blind and mute and lame, please heal my mom. If it is her time to join You, we praise Your holy name, but we do plead You for more time with our beloved mother. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for a Return to Health
Jesus, the Great Physician, I just heard the news that my mom is sick. She is laid up in bed and can’t go about her normal routine. I know how much she loves to be active and to move around the house and the neighborhood. Jesus, I pray that You would heal her and allow her to return to full health. Inactivity must be very demoralizing for her. I pray that You would also ease and pain or discomfort she has during this time until she is healed. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Comfort
God of All Comfort, as my mom is dealing with sickness, I pray that You would comfort her. I am sure that she is fighting against a million fearful thoughts about how serious the sickness is. Lord, I pray that You would be next to her and go before her. Be her comfort and her rock that she does not fear. I also pray, Lord, that it isn’t something serious, but is instead just a temporary cold that runs its course quickly. In Jesus’, name I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Full Recovery
O Lord, my Healer, I pray that You would give my mom two things: first, a full recovery, even if the doctors say that will never happen, and, two, a faith as strong as iron that You will use this sickness and all the pain it has caused for Your good and for the good of those who love You. Do a mighty work in the life of my mom. May she be praising You in the midst of this sickness and during the recovery. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against the Power of Sickness
God of Heaven’s Armies, I pray against the power of the devil and sin and sickness and the pain all three can cause in this world. My mother is caught in the midst of sickness right now, Lord, and I rebuke that sickness, in the name of Jesus. You are over all things, Lord Jesus. You have the power to heal any disease. You have the power to move mountains, to part the seas, to tame the ocean. I pray that You would heal my mother right now. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for the Easing of Suffering
O Jehovah, my God, I pray that You would reach down and take away the suffering my mom is going through right now. I cannot even imagine how unbearable it is. She is so strong, but I know it is hurting her. She has been such an encouragement to me my whole life, and it pains me to see her this way. Lord, I believe in faith that You will act on her behalf and restore her to wellness. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Full Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Healing
Oh, Jesus, my Great Healer, I pray that You would restore my mother to full health. Her mental, emotional, and spiritual health have been in decline as of late, Lord. I pray that You would share a small portion of Your divine grace with her. I pray that she would drink deeply of the running waters of Your love, and so be completely healed. I pray that You keep my dear mother with me on this earth for as long as You can spare her from Your holy presence, Jesus. In Your majestic and loving name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for a Prayer Warrior
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer, I come before You to plea for the life and health of my mother. She has been a rock of faith throughout my life, a real prayer warrior who has spent countless hours on her knees praying for my protection and for the protection of the rest of our family. Now in her hour of need, I ask, Lord, that You would hear my prayer and heal my mother. We still need her here, Lord. We know that when she is healed, she will continue to proclaim Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against Hopelessness
God of Loving Devotion, with the diagnosis my mom just got, it is so easy for her or for any of us to feel hopeless. Lord, I pray that You would overcome our meager faith and remind us of who You are. I pray that we would never give in to despair. I especially pray that You would keep my mom from despairing. Give her the strength to attack this sickness like the lion she is. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for God’s Physical Healing
Compassionate and Gracious God, I pray that You would reach down with all of Your healing power and shower it on my mom. She is downcast right now, Lord, and her body is failing her. If she is to continue to praise You in the land of the living, she will need a miracle. But You, Jesus, are the God of miracles. You are the King of miracles. You can raise the dead and You can heal the sick. I pray that You would do so now. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Quick Healing before a Traveling
Sovereign Lord, I pray that You would heal my mom in time for her to still be able to go on the trip she had been planning. Lord, she has been planning this trip for such a long time, and I know she would be very discouraged if she didn’t get to go on it. Please, Lord, allow her to go on the trip. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for a Successful Procedure
O Jehovah, my God, I praise You for the advances in medical technology. A generation ago, my mom’s diagnosis would have been a death sentence. But now, Lord, she has a good chance at full recovery and I am so grateful. Still, the procedure is not 100% effective, and so I pray, Lord Jesus, that You would make it to work properly in this instance and that my mom would be healed completely. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for A New Friend in the Midst of Sickness
Lord Jehovah, Self-Existent One, I pray that You would be with my mom as she is in the hospital. Help her to be friendly and kind to all those around her as she recovers. I pray that during this difficult time that You would even bless her with a new friend and that she would find companionship in this new friend during her stay in the hospital. Bring joy into her heart despite the difficulty of being ill. We praise You for Your goodness, Lord. We thank You for watching over us, even and especially when we are sick. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
