Prayer For A Mother That Is Close To Death

My loving heavenly Father, I know in my heart that the time for me to say goodbye to my precious mother is getting very close. I know her time in this world is nearing its close, and so Lord I pray that You will remain so close to her. I love her so much, and it pains me to see her so close to death.

Lord, I don’t want to say goodbye, yet it pains me deeply to see her suffer so and slowly fade in strength. I pray that You will give me the courage and grace to face the inevitable. But also help me, Lord, to use whatever time I have left with my dear mother, to make her the time we have left together as special as possible.

I do thank You Father for giving me my mother. She has been very special to me in so many ways. She taught and trained me, corrected me and helped me and was always there for me when I needed, even on those occasions when I was not very grateful.

Her love for You Lord Jesus is so special and something that I will remember all my life. Thank You that she was the one that taught me about Jesus and how he died on the cross to take the punishment that I deserved, and that He rose again and is coming again to take us to be with Himself in heaven. Thank You, Father, for my mother.

Be with her every breath I pray, until You take her to be with Yourself. Thank You.
