7 Good Prayers for Single Moms

Life as a single mom can seem overwhelming and stressful. There are days when you feel the weight of playing both parental roles to your children. Here is a listing of some good prayers for single moms that will help to provide you with some spiritual relief.

Rest Prayer
Father God, the creator of all, thank you for accepting me as your daughter. Thank you for loving me with all my flaws. Dear God, playing the role of father and mother in the lives of my children is taking a toll on me. I do not know how to balance life anymore. There are so many things that I have to do now for my family. I don’t think I can manage this I feel like giving up. Please help me to find a balance so that I can have time to myself and get some rest. May I find rest in you that I may be able to operate from the point of overflow and bring up my children in your ways. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Lift My Soul Prayer
Heavenly Father, everything that is happening in my life has left me feeling overwhelmed, and I don’t have anywhere to turn to but to you. Lord, you know the burden that I’m carrying, putting food on the table, and ensuring that all my children are happy. Lord, it is so hard, and I feel so discouraged. Lift my soul O Lord and help me to focus on you even as I juggle so many things. Be my guide in all that I do in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Redeem Me Prayer
Lord, I did not sign up for this. The burden is too much, but I cannot run away from my children and responsibilities. My strength is dried up, and the enemy keeps attacking me with thoughts of condemnation because of what happened between my husband and me. But Lord, you know what happened; I did not expect or want this. I thought everything was okay now; I am bitter, lonely, and afflicted. You are my refuge. Please send help from your sanctuary. Redeem me O God from all my troubles. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Comfort Prayer
Heavenly Father, manifest your presence in the lives of single mothers all over the world. Instead of shame, please give them a double portion. Remind them of your love and that you are their husband and redeemer. Some of them are hurting so badly, and they have closed their hearts. Please help them to open their hearts to you that you may comfort and heal them. Lord let them know that you love them and that they are the apple of your eyes, In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Beauty for Ashes Prayer
Dear God, my sister is hurting since the divorce. She keeps crying and is very depressed. Lord, even though it may seem that you’re far off right now, you are not. You never sleep nor slumber. You’re always there for your children. Please remind her that you will never leave her nor forsake her. Manifest your presence in her life that she may know you’re there with her. Take loneliness far away from her heart and fill her heart with love and courage to face life. Give her beauty instead of ashes and let your name be glorified. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Strength Prayer
O God, wrap your arms of love around me and embrace me with your unconditional love, for I feel lonely and unloved. I have a lot to deal with lately, and I have to do it doing it alone. I pretend to be okay when I am with my children because I know they need me to be strong for them. Give me divine strength that I may be able to continue being there for them. Be my source of strength when I am weak and keep me healthy so that I can take care of my children. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Restoration Prayer
Dear God, I am dealing with anger, depression, bitterness, and anxiety. I am insecure, and I keep questioning my self-worth. When I am alone, I keep worrying about my children’s future, bills, and my career. Those people that I called friends have turned against me. They keep laughing at me and do not want to associate with me. O Lord, this betrayal by people I trusted has left me feeling very insecure and unworthy. Lord, restore me. Please give me the joy of your salvation and lift my head high. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
