Grandmothers are special people and often take care of their grandchildren. This creates a special bond between them. Their deaths are therefore always painful.
However, we can always remember them and talk to them, even after their deaths. We can also pray for them and pray with them. It may sound strange to some, but when you have a close bond with your grandmother, you will understand one day.
Those who have lost a grandmother know that they are always present in our minds and in our hearts.
We’ve gathered 7 prayers to say for a dead grandmother to show her and God how much you cared about her.
Before you start, save these goodbye short prayers for the dead.
1) Short Prayer for Dead Grandmother: Acknowledgment

Ask the Lord to make her journey easy. Pray and acknowledge the life that she lived here on earth. Ask the Lord to welcome her into His arms.
We pray for the beauty of a soul that has been through life, especially if they have reached a ripe old age.
Proverbs 16:31 says: “The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness.”
I believe you should also pray these prayers for strength during difficult times.

Grandmothers are easy to love. This is true because the strict rules of parenthood do not bind them.
This does not mean they do not discipline, but they love without restrictions. As the Bible tells us: “Children’s children are the crown of old men.” — Proverbs 17:6.
We love our grandmothers because they are special. Show her how much you cared for her by saying this beautiful prayer.

Lord, please help us, those who were left behind, to be comforted and that You will ease the pain of our great loss.
Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Losing someone you love is not easy. Losing a grandmother can be just as devastating. It is therefore a good thing to pray for comfort from the Lord.
Open your heart to the Lord and ask Him to bring solace to your grandmother and your soul through this difficult time.
But remember, you can always talk to her by praying. Let her know how much you miss her and that you’ll never forget her.

Praying for your deceased grandmother is a good thing for her as well as for your own soul. Sometimes it is easy to pray for her, and other times it can be difficult to find the right words to say. We hope these short prayers will be helpful to you.
Gather them together and say them with a sincere heart, believing that you will receive what you ask for.
As the Word of God says:
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” — Mark 11:24-25.
5) Prayer for Dead Grandmother Rest in Peace

She needs You, and I know I can trust You to shine Your light on her so that she finds the path to Heaven.

Thank You for always listening to my prayers and thank You for letting me know that I can come to You and ask for rest and peace for my deceased grandmother. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Sometimes grandmothers live incredibly faithful lives for God. Then we know that they have gone to be with the Lord:
“In my Father’s house there are many mansions; otherwise, I would have told you; I’ll make you a place. And when I’m gone and got you prepared, again I will come and I will take you close to me, so that where I am, you too may be. And from where I’m going, you know the way.” — John 14:1-6.
When we know that they have gone to be with the Lord, we can thank Him for their rest and peace.
We can, however, ask Him once more, after death, to give her the rest and peace she needs.
6) Prayer for Grandma Funeral
“Dear Father in Heaven, I pray on this day that You are with our family as we gather to send (grandmother’s name) off to her final place of rest.
Dear Father of great mercy, receive our prayers today as we say goodbye to (grandmother’s name). Today, we ask that You receive her well and protect her soul with Your loving arms.
Thank You, Lord, that we are able to come together here to say farewell to our beloved (grandmother’s name). Thank You for her life and for blessing us with such a kind person in our lives.
May (grandmother’s name) rest in peace by Your side and watch over us. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Praying for your grandma at her funeral is also a way of bringing comfort to those attending. It is a way of remembering her and commemorating her legacy. It can also be a time to thank her for her role in our lives.
Praying for her at the time of her last farewell will ensure everyone that she is in the presence of the Lord.
7) Prayer for Dead Grandmother to Protect Me
“Dear (grandmother’s name), I know you are resting peacefully in Heaven and that I will see you again. For now, I ask that you protect me.
(Grandmother’s name), I ask for your protection, as I know that you are in the presence of the Lord. Please ask the Lord to send His angels over me.
You have always prayed for me while you were here with us. Please protect me with your holiness.
I miss you so much, and your departure left a void in my heart. I hope we can reunite once again with God by our side. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Sometimes, for special purposes, God will allow our loved ones to protect us from behind the veil.
Some people have attested to protection from loved ones by finding, for example, small white feathers in uncommon places.
They do believe that it is a loved one reminding them of their protection. Even a gentle touch can remind you that your grandmother is there to protect you.
Take note of these things, especially when you pray.
Before you leave, take a look at these prayers for a grieving family.
Will My Grandmother Really Hear These Prayers?
We do not always understand death. However, sometimes experience is the only way to determine whether someone is there for you after death.
If you need to know if your grandmother hears your prayers, she will find a way to let you know. You will feel it in your heart that she has heard your prayers for her.
The important thing is to pray, trusting that she will hear you. She will let you know, with a sign (as we said above) if she hears you. Be careful, though, to discern the spirits so that you are not deceived.
God tells us: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God.” — 1 John 4:1.
Can I Say the Prayers at Any Time?
You can pray most of these prayers at any time. Some of them, though, such as the prayers for the funeral, are special and specific.
Whenever you feel the need to pray, it does not matter when or where you should pray these prayers. Prayers can be personal, read off a card, or from your phone. Mobile phones have made it easy for us to read prayers wherever we are.
Can I Pray More Than One Prayer?
All prayers are personal expressions, even if we read them. You can use it when you need it for your purpose.
This means that you can choose and say as many prayers as you need to.
The need you have at any given time will determine the prayer and how many you need to say. Most importantly, it is about praying sincerely, truthfully, and from the heart.
Sometimes we lack the words to pray, and these prayers can help us along. When you pray, address your grandmother in your prayers. Instead of just saying “grandmother,” use your personal way to address her. For example, say, “Grammy Rose, we ask the Lord that He protects you even in death.”
You should also personalize the prayers by calling her by the special title you gave her. Each family has different names for a grandma, such as NaNa, Nonna, Grammy, Gramma, and so forth. Pray the prayers from your heart.
If you can, always remember to make the Lord the center of all your prayers, regardless of the kind of prayer you pray.
