Flashback Friday: Mother’s Day–A Daughter’s Prayer

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10th and although celebrations of our mothers are limited, we can still make sure our mothers feel appreciated in the simplest ways. What are you doing for your mother to show your appreciation and love? Check out this flashback poetic prayer originally posted on May 7, 2016 and from my book, Setting The Captive Free Poetry Book.

A Daughter’s Prayer

Lord, I pray for my mother

By first thanking You for her

I acknowledge that You created her for a reason

And it wasn’t just to be my mom

So, I pray Lord that she seeks out her gifts and purpose from You

For You are her creator

Lord, I pray that she realizes

That she is fearfully and wonderfully made

And that she was set apart for Your use and

Your use alone

I pray, Lord

That You will grant her the grace

To reject all negative and deceptive comments, beliefs and thoughts Satan tries to inject in her mind

I pray, Lord that You will bind up

Every critical spirit that tries to pollute her mind and her emotions

Lord, I pray that she will be filled with joy and peace

Your peace that surpasses all understanding

I come against fear that she may have, for You did not give her a spirit of fear

But that of power, love and a sound mind

I pray, Lord, that she will see herself the way You see her

And that she surrenders every area of her life to You

I pray, Lord, that she believes without a doubt

And she prays without ceasing

Give her strength, Lord, to move forward

And be what You have called her to be and do what You have called her to do

Grant her Godly wisdom, knowledge and understanding of Your Word

Help her exude holiness and virtue continually so that her girls may imitate these attributes that You possess

Help her to trust You and depend upon Your strength

For only with You there is stability and security

Give her direction for her children

Help her to be anxious about nothing even when it comes to her children, but to pray about everything

Lord, help her to forgive and love even when it becomes difficult

Build her up and encourage her

And let her learn to encourage herself when others won’t

Let her not lose sight of the visions and dreams You have placed in her heart

Let her have time to devote to You

And let her experience Your Presence in her devotion time

Help her to take time also for herself as well as to reflect and laugh

Let her identity be wrapped up in You

Lord, Let her know that her prayers are not in vain

Her praise has not gone unnoticed

And her tears have not gone unseen.

Now Lord, I pray that your angels encamp round about her, protect her, guard her heart and her mind

Lord, I pray that she develops the fear of the Lord within her heart

And the joy of the Lord always

In Jesus’ name, Amen

And thank you for my mother’s love

Because of a mother’s unconditional love, I know how you feel about me
