Powerful prayers for parents
Everyone should know at least one prayer for parents from child. There is always some kind of spiritual connection between parents and children and their prayers for each other are extremely strong. The Lord gives children, but the connection that is established between these three people is very strong. Kids from birth are under the protection and care of their parents and when they grow up they become a support for the aged mothers and fathers.
It is very important to respect them and take care just as they cared for their babies. It is important not only to help physically, but also spiritually.

Prayer for unbelieving parents
Father in heaven, I bring my dear mother and father to You - those who brought me into this world and gave me the gift of life. I do thank You for all the loving support and care they have given me throughout my life – but I am also aware that they do not know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.
I do praise You that in Your grace You searched me out to become Your child and gave me the gift of eternal life – but Lord I long that my parents also come to that same saving faith in Jesus – and the older they get the more I realise that without You they have a sad future. Lord whatever it takes - I pray that in Your mercy, You will give both of them the sort of Damascus Road experience that Paul had, before it is too late. Draw them to Yourself I pray.
Bring them Lord to an understanding of Who You are and what You have done for them - that You died on the cross to forgive their sins.. and all that they have to do is to believe on Jesus as their Saviour.
Use me Lord in whatever way You choose to point them to Christ. Let me not speak out of turn, but let me not miss an opportunity to share the gospel with them once more…. Father I honour them as my parents and love them dearly – but Father- save them I pray – draw them with Your love – so that we may all be together in Your eternal home, I pray,

Prayers for mom and dad, for their health are important not only because it is the Lord’s petition for their well-being, but also because it softens the hearts of children. If there is an insult or unforgiveness, then the prayer for the ancestors helps to cope with these negative feelings.
Christ said, "Pray for your enemies." Mothers and fathers, of course, are not enemies, but the principle is the same - the request of the Lord for them softens the hearts of the person praying. In any case, this is a care for the older generation and a manifestation of love.
Children may not always be close to their parents, but you can always ask for their health, for this distance is not important.
Pray for your family from the bottom of your heart. Let the bright spirit enter your soul and help your parents get strong health, success and long life. Let God bless your family!
