Prayers for an
Adult Son

Mothers have a very special relationship with their sons and this strong bond continues into adulthood. This unique God-given "mom-love" can be the driving force behind powerful prayers that cause grown children to come into all God's blessings and purposes for their lives.

Burdens can lighten and peace be renewed when mothers learn to cast all their cares for their grown children onto the Lord. 

Mothers, take heart, and be assured that God hears all our prayers. He loves our grown children even more than we do ❤

1. Prayer for Your Grown Son to Find Direction in Life and Have Purpose...


Father in Heaven,


My son is making decisions that will affect the rest of his life and I pray Your spirit will protect him from making grave mistakes. 


Please prompt him to read Your word so he may have the light of Your presence to guide his steps. Take hold of his hand, leading and guiding him into all truth.


May each choice that he makes be establishing him in Your purposes. Bless him on this day. May he turn to You in his hour of need. Help him and strengthen his faith.


In Your Precious Name, Amen.


2. Prayer for Your Adult Son to Find a Girlfriend, Mate, Spouse, Wife and Settle Down...


Heavenly Father,


Your plans and purposes for my son are better than we could ever think or imagine. In Your wisdom and love, You placed desires in a man’s heart for a wife, and Your word says that it is not good for a man to be alone.


Please give peace to my son’s heart and help him be patient as he waits for Your timing. Go before each of them this day and work in their hearts so when they do meet, there will be no doubt that You brought them together.


In Your Precious Name, Amen.


3. Prayer for the Lord to Watch Over Your Son With Tender Loving Care...


Father in Heaven,


My heart is grieved over my son’s actions, and I am very burdened with his life choices. There seems to be nothing I can do, and my hands are tied. I’ve tried everything, even giving him money and a place to live. Now he is in Your hands, and I entrust Him into Your hands.


Please watch over him, I beg of You, please protect him from harming himself. Allow him to feel Your everlasting love and let him know You are near him. Give him strength of character to do what is right. Put him on a good path again.

In Your Precious Name, Amen.
