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 and it pains me deeply to see her suffer so and slowly fade in strength - but 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.

Amen.
