The Powerful Prayers of a Mother's Love for Her Grown Children

The special bond between a mother and her son lasts a lifetime. This unique "mom-love" is a gift from God and can encourage powerful prayers that inspire grown children to achieve their fullest potential and blessings in life.

Mothers can experience a renewed sense of peace and a lightening of burdens when they learn to entrust their grown children's care to the Lord.

Mothers, take comfort in knowing that God hears all of our prayers and loves our grown children even more than we do.

Let's Pray

Read and pray the following prayers for your adult son and then put your hope and trust in the Lord.

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer."

Romans 12:12

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.
