Prayers for Memory Loss

Prayer For Accident Victim With Memory Loss

Oh Lord, We come to You to lift up all those who have been involved in a vehicle accident and are having to face the devastating consequences of long-term memory loss and on-going physical pain

We ask for Your comfort, grace, strength and support for all who are having to completely rearrange their lives and rethink their future, as a result of such a traumatic misfortune. Draw close to each one we pray, whose memory has been affected, and we ask that You would be very close to all who have had to suffer in this way. We pray that they might find You to be their ever-present help in time of trouble and know Your presence with them – each moment of the day. 

Look down in pity and mercy we pray - not only on the victims whose lives have been changed so cruelly, but on all family members and friends who have been severely impacted by such a devastating blow. Give them wisdom to know what to do and the grace to face the future with confidence – knowing that through it all.. You have promised to never leave them nor forsake them. 

Supply each one with Your sufficient grace and may they discover through this experience an intimacy with You that they might otherwise have missed – this we ask in Jesus name,


Prayer For Alzheimer

Loving Lord, we ask You to hear our prayer for those with Alzheimer’s disease and pray that You would grant them You perfect peace in their heart and a loving and secure environment in which to live, where they can be properly cared for, cherished and looked after in a safe and secure environment - with dignity and human respect 

We pray that those whose minds are in the process of shutting down would not become fearful or disoriented  -  and that those whose memory has already become closed off to their nearest and dearest, would be granted His perfect peace deep within their soul and may the joy of the Lord flood their hearts. 

We ask for Your blessing and grace on all who care for patients or relatives with Alzheimer’s disease, knowing that this sort of degenerative condition can be extremely taxing and frustrating. Give each care-worker and every family member the strength, patience and grace to deal with this type of severe memory loss, in Jesus name we pray,


Prayer For Dad's Memory Loss

It is so hard Lord to see my dad starting to become so forgetful and seems to be losing his memory, and I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to prevent this from advancing any further.. and even to reverse the problem.

Lord, You are the one Who designed our minds and our bodies and You are the only one that can truly help him and heal him at this time. Open our eyes to discover if there is anything that we can do to address this issue – whether it is with diet or exercise or medication or anything else.  Give us the wisdom we pray to help my dad, as we don’t want this to advance any further – it is so painful.

I pray that You would draw very close to him throughout both the day and the night-time hours. Guide his hesitating steps, keep him from stumbling, protect him when he is in unfamiliar surroundings and prevent him from becoming agitated, upset and frustrated, when he is unable to clearly communicate his needs and wishes to us.

Help my dad.. and all of us, to be willing to accept the advancing years and the deterioration of our health and failing memories. May the angel of Your presence encamp around him and may he feel You every closer to himself in his advancing years – in Jesus name we pray,



Prayer For Mom's Memory Loss

Dear Lord, I love my Mom so much but it is so sad to see the way that she has been losing her memory over the last months, and is getting to the point where she is becoming so confused that she often does not remember our names or even recognize who we are. 

Lord this degenerative process and loss of memory is so painful.. and at times I just want to sob my eyes out as my own precious Mom is becoming so frail and vulnerable. And yet as I watch her I also have a heart filled with thanksgiving and praise, that You ordained that she would be my mother and I would be her child – and I praise and thank You that the day is coming when we will be together with glorified bodies and living in Your presence. Thank You for the blessed hope that we have in You, and the glorious day when You have promised to wipe away all our tears from our eyes and heal all our pain.

How I praise and thank You for that blessed hope.. but in the meantime I ask that You would give us all the grace and patience to love my precious mother through her failing memory and may Your joy and peace remain in her heart 


Prayer For Our Loved Ones With Memory Loss

Heavenly Father, it is so hard to come to terms with the realization  that our loved ones have been struck down with some sort of dementia or loss of memory. And Lord it seems even harder to have to accept that the person You loved so dearly has become a stranger in Your midst.. with little or no recollection of who you are. 

We pray for all who are having to go through this painful experience, and the grief and loss they feel, as the one they loved so dearly has become estranged and distant from them. We pray for strength and support  for all who are having to mourn this tragic loss, despite their physical presence.. and ask that You would comfort and strengthen all in this difficult situation. 

But we also pray for those who have lost their memory and the internal confusion and difficulty that must go with losing ones memories..  forgetting who you are and not even recognizing those that are your close loved ones. We pray that You would draw very close to all who are suffering memory loss at this time, and we pray that You would touch the inner reaches of their heart and mind and give them the special comfort and precious peace that only comes from You. This we ask in the name of Jesus – our Saviour and God,

Lord, I am asking for Your help today. Show me why I am unable to recall to memory things that I have learned and help me also to overcome this memorization problem

Lord, I know that You are able to correct this memory loss – but if there is something that You want to show through it or teach me.. I pray that I will be open to the leading of Your Holy Spirit and that He will show me anything that will help to address inability to remember and retain information. I trust Your word and ask that in Your goodness and grace You will help address this memorization issue speedily – and I will give You all the praise and glory,
