A Prayer For The Mom Who Has Sick Children

I pray for the mom who is caring for sick children in her home. Please strengthen and enable her to take care of the extra needs that are present. (Psalm 46:1; Psalm 9:9; Psalm 59:16)

Help her to keep her eyes on You, and to depend on You to hold things together, (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 12:1-3) and remind her that she is powerful in prayer. (James 5:14; Philippians 4:6,7)

Please help her to remember that You understand what she is going through. (Isaiah 53:3) Pour out the extra grace she needs to get her through this season. (Hebrews 4:16)

Help her to  trust You with all her heart, (Proverbs 3:5-6) and to remember that Your ways and thoughts are higher than our ways and thoughts.  (Romans 11:33-34; Isaiah 55:8-10)

Remind her that You are the Great Physician, and that You are in control of everything. ( John 5:1-9; 1 Chronicles 29:11; 1)

Help her to remember that there is eternal value in caring for her children every day. (Mark 10:13-16;  1 Timothy 5:8)

Give her the rest she needs to be able to do what she needs to do. (Matthew 11:28,29; Psalm 23)

Open the eyes of those who know her, and cause them to see how they can serve and encourage this tired mom while she is at home taking care of her children. (1Corinthians 12:25; Philippians 2:4; Galatians 5:13)

Thank you for Your perfect example of sacrifice and service, and please enable us to live in a way that reflects You to those around us, beginning with the little ones in our home. (Mark 10:45; Philippians 2:6)

And may Your name be glorified through this difficult time. (Philippians 1:6; 2 Corinthians 3:18)
