5 Beautiful Prayers for the Mother of the Bride 

It’s no lie that the mother of the bride is often more excited about their daughter’s wedding than the bride herself. Watching their once-a-little girl walk down the aisle can be both delightful and confusing. 

This is a day they feel so happy that their daughter is finally marrying the man that God has chosen for them but also slightly sad they’re “being taken away from them.”

As a caring loved one, the best thing you can do now is pray for the bride’s mother to bless and strengthen them

Below are five beautiful prayers to guide you.

“Our Father who is in Heaven, 

Hallowed be Your name! You’ve always been there for (mother’s name) every day of their life since they received their bundle of joy (mention daughter’s name). 

Today, we pray that You may bless her as she battles a blend of emotions about her daughter’s wedding. As her little girl leaves her care and goes into a different family, may You strengthen and reassure her she will be at peace. 

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.”

A wedding is a beautiful experience where everyone is filled with happiness, love, and celebration. However, things might differ for the bride’s mother as she plays a substantial role in this event. 

From ensuring everything is well set up, welcoming guests, rejoicing for her daughter, and still coming to terms with the fact that she’s actually getting married- that’s a lot for one person!

As you offer physical support in different areas, you should remember to pray for her as she becomes a mother-in-law. 

This prayer for the bride’s mom is an intercession to ask God to bless and guide them as they witness their daughter’s new chapter. They can find God’s reassurance, wisdom, and solace through prayer.

You can even say a Bible verse after praying or during the ceremony:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. — 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

A beautiful prayer is a perfect present you can give the bride’s mother at her daughter’s wedding. People may not know or see that you’re praying for her, but our God in Heaven does and will bless you. 

Planning a wedding comes with some challenges, especially for the parents of the bride and bridegroom. There may be tension between both families as each wonder if their loved one will be fully loved in their new home. 

If you know a mum in this situation, ask God to listen and answer the prayers of their servant, so their heart can be still. 

“Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this. — Nehemiah 1:11.

The mother of the bride plays such a vital role in the event. As you enjoy the sweet meal and magnificent décor, you should remember to thank God on their behalf and ask Him to bless them. 

In the Bible, motherhood and parenting are seen as a great blessing from God. In fact, a few scriptures are used to illustrate the goodness of a mother. For instance, the book of Isaiah portrays mothers as innate and strong creatures that cannot forget their babies.

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” — Isaiah 49:15.

Similarly, God’s love for us is as everlasting as that of a mother

While you pray for the bride’s mother, remember to bless the newlyweds as they enter the marriage. The union comes with a few challenges that can be tackled with faithful intercessory prayers.

Being the bride’s mother has many physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual responsibilities. Without God’s intervention, it can be nearly impossible to maneuver through this demanding phase of their life.

Remember, the bride relies on her mom for support, advice, and prayers

When you say the above prayer for the bride’s mother, it’s like fueling them with the energy they require to own and work this new title. Speak Proverbs 3:5 into her life so she may trust the Lord with all her heart and not rely on her own understanding. 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;” — Proverbs 3:5.

Through this heartfelt prayer, you will have laid a positive foundation for the newlyweds and long-lasting relationships between both families.

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12.

Before you leave, save these prayers for marriage restoration.

When Should I Pray the Prayers?

You can start praying for the mother of the bride just when you learn about their daughter’s wedding. Your prayers are ideal for keeping them strong, active, and positive throughout the preparation period and beyond. 

Alternatively, you can say the prayers during the wedding day because, at this moment, the bride’s mom is more happy and celebrating or anxious or worried.

Others may prefer praying for the bride’s mom when the wedding has already happened, and it’s also okay

Whichever way, your prayers will help to calm down any disturbing thoughts they could be having and let them focus on their daughter’s big day better. 

Will These Prayers Really Help the Mother of the Bride?

Honestly, your prayers will help the bride’s mother in so many different aspects. For instance, the prayers comfort, support, strengthen and guide the mother as she celebrates her daughter’s wedding. 

However, your faith and trust in God play a significant role in the functionality of these prayers. While you say them, you should maintain a confident belief that God will and can help the bride’s mother, and it will be so. 

Even though these prayers can be beneficial, the bride’s mother can find further encouragement and love in physical support and wishes written in messages or cards. You can also uplift and celebrate them verbally when you meet for more effective results

Final Thoughts 

For women, marriage is more than just joining hands with the man you love; it is about building a family and learning more about life together. That’s why mothers are often slightly unstable at their daughter’s wedding, wondering if the husband will really fulfill her desires. 

As the bride’s mother watches her beautiful daughter get married, you should pray for her heart to be filled with joy and contentment and not distress. In conclusion, be sure to uplift a mother whose daughter’s wedding is coming up through the above prayers.
