5 Meaningful Prayers For Grandmas [With Bible Verses]

We don’t really need a special occasion to shower our grandmas with love and cover them in prayer; after all, they’ve laid foundations of compassion, wisdom, and patience for our families. They hold a special place in our hearts! It’s always a privilege to pause and whisper meaningful prayers for grandmas who are still here with us.

For many of us, our grandmother’s prayers are the reason we’re here today. Perhaps you had a praying grandma and there were many nights she brought your name before the Lord, petitioning him on your behalf. Or, maybe she picked you up and brought you to church with her on Sundays so you could share her love for God. For some of us, it was a simple as making sure she was always available for heartfelt chats while offering an endless supply of her homemade chocolate chip cookies.

As she ages, your prayers for her are more important than ever. Below you’ll find five meaningful prayers for you to pray for your grandmas, with bible verses:

  • Prayer For Grandma to Grow Old Gracefully
  • Prayer For Grandma’s Healing & Safety
  • Prayer For Grandma’s Spiritual Life
  • Prayer For Grandma’s Strength
  • Prayer For Grandma’s Legacy

Prayers For Grandmas

1. Prayer For Grandma to Grow Older Gracefully

Proverbs 21:28-31

Her children rise and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is susceptive and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

Lord, thank you for showing my grandmother how to age gracefully. Help me to know how to bless her and be an encouragement to her. Create opportunities for me to show her how virtuous and capable she really is. Reward her for all she has done for our family. Let other people see the good things she’s done and praise her as well.

In Jesus name, amen.

2. Prayer For Grandma’s Healing and Safety

Psalm 71:9

Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

Dear Lord, help my grandma feel safe and protected. Keep her from being afraid of being left alone when her “strength is gone.” Speak peace into her heart and calm her mind. Show her how to trust you as she grows older and her body weakens.

Heal her body from the common ailments that often come with aging. Keep her joints strong and protect her from falls. Let her rise each morning and thank you for the new day ahead. Wrap her in your arms each new morning. Bless her home with laughter, joy, strength, and abundance.

In Jesus name, amen.

3. Prayer For Grandma’s Spiritual Life

1 Peter.2:1-3

So put away all malice and all guile and insincerity and envy and all slander. Like newborn babies, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation: for you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.”

Lord, thank you for the kindness that’s been cultivated in my grandmother’s life. You’ve helped her to grow in her relationship with you, and shown her your kindness. Your mercies are new every morning! Although she’s older now, let her desire to know you continue to grow. Help her to never feel like she’s “arrived” in her spiritual journey. Keep tugging at her heart, leading her to salvation, so she never grows stagnant in her walk with you.

In Jesus name, amen.

4. Prayer For Grandma’s Strength

Isaiah 40:30-31

Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like the eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Father, I know that we sometimes go through seasons when we feel weak and tired. But — I also know that your word is true, and your word says that when we trust in you, we find new strength. It’s when we are weak that we can learn to appreciate your strength! You always carry us through to the other side of weariness and exhaustion. When grandma needs strength, help her to lean on you. Help her to accomplish her daily tasks and not grow weary. Give her energy for the day ahead.

In Jesus name, amen.

5. Prayer For Grandma’s Legacy

Titus 2:3-5

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Mighty God, I pray that you help my grandma be reverent, worthy of respect, and teach what is good. Keep her from speaking any kind of slander about anyone and from being addicted to wine or other substances.

Keep her mind sharp so she can teach other women who are younger than her how to show love their husbands and children. Help her train them in life skills that will have an eternal influence, such as practicing self control, purity, and kindness. May she inspire other women to be busy in their homes, making it a haven for their families.

Thank you for her godly example in my life. I pray she leaves a legacy of godliness for many young women.

In Jesus name, amen.
