Prayer For Daughters
Heavenly Father, I lift up my daughter to You as she goes to school today, and pray that You would stay close to her throughout the day. I pray for Your protection over her, spirit, soul and body and that You not only keep her sheltered from all those that might be uncaring, thoughtless or careless towards her, but that You would bring into her life.. good friends that will stand by her and teachers that encourage and nurture her - and who remain fair in their discipline and training.
Keep her we pray from getting involved with the wrong people who might lead her astray and help us to identify any unusual attitudes or behaviours that might have resulted from her getting friendly with the wrong crowd.. and so we pray that in Your strength, we may be able to address any problems at school, well before they develop into a real problem areas.
May she develop her time-keeping and discipline skills and be ready and willing to learn the meaning of responsibility, accountability and self-control. And I pray that her walk with Jesus might blossom and grow stronger with every passing day.
And I also pray that from her waking moments to the time when she closes her eyes in sleep.. that You would lead her along the right path and guide her into all truth.. so that her trust and relationship with Jesus may blossom and grow.. into a spiritual maturity that seeks to keep Jesus as the center of her life, in Whose name I Pray,
O heavenly Father, what joy my beautiful daughter has become to me and I love her so very much. Lord, I thank You that You placed her in our family and for the joy that she has brought to me and to so many other people too, for which I praise and thank You.
Father God, You knew her before she was conceived and loved her before she was born and how I praise and thank You that she is developing a simple, child-like trust in You. How I long that she comes to deep and steadfast faith in Christ, which I know is even more important to You than it is to me, for I know that You love her with an everlasting tenderness, a love that even surpasses my own deep affection for her.
I pray that she may develop into a virtuous young woman with an unshakable trust in You, and a pure and tender heart. May she grow in grace and develop integrity, truth, faithfulness and gentleness, with a heart of compassion for others that is so attractive in a young woman of God.
I pray for her protection from those that would seek to blemish her loveliness in this increasingly fallen world, and praise and thank You for the love and joy that my beautiful daughter has brought into our lives. In Jesus' name I pray,
I pray that my daughter will be flexible. When the time is right for compliance, help her to bend. When it is in her best interest to stand her ground, give her strength. Let her see Your truth and not be stubborn in harmful ways. I pray for her to love and trust with abundance. Guide her to her soul mate when the time is right. Permeate her heart with joy everlasting.
I offer a prayer for my daughter that she will hear the small still voice inside. Your voice, the one that brings calm. Her own voice, the one that encourages good choices. And the voice of spirit, the perfect combination of holy and humanity. I pray for my daughter to speak carefully: To raise her voice in defense of the weak. To speak soothingly to those in need. To use words that are productive and kind. Be inside and beside her, dear Lord.
I pray for my daughter to see the beauty in this world and the goodness in people. Show her how to raise her head in confidence, yet lower it with humility before You. Help her to be a life long learner. May she always gain knowledge, grow in understanding, and find wisdom. Please God, help her to close her eyes in restful slumber and open them in appreciation of Your glorious morning light.
Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my daughter. Keep evil far from her, and help her to trust You as her refuge and strength. I pray You will guard her mind from harmful instruction, and grant her discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make her strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help her to find rest in Your shadow, as she lives in the spiritual shelter You provide for her. Let her know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that her home on earth is only temporary. In Jesus name, amen.
Holy God, I thank you for the precious gift of my daughter. I pray you would protect her through the years. May she become a young woman of great character, seeking after your heart. I pray that through the challenges of life, she would find her confidence in you. May she know your joy as her strength (Nehemiah 8:10). Amen.
Heavenly Lord, thank You that You are a loving Father Who graciously teaches us all things by the power of Your Holy Spirit,,Who guides us into all truth and Who develops in each of us the lovely character of the Lord Jesus, as we abide in Him and He in us.
I come to You today to ask for Your help in teaching my daughter the important lessons of perseverance under pressure knowing that we all have to press on to the goal of our high calling in Jesus Christ. Too often she seems to give up on her personal goals and groupprojects,and does not seem to understand the importance of seeing something through to its final completion.
Lord, I know that she is young but I do pray that she will come to learn and appreciate the importance of perseverance and diligence in her life, which is foundational in so many areas of our Christian walk including moral excellence, spiritual understanding, wisdom, and godlybehaviour.
I pray that she may be filled with a knowledge of God's will for her life.. in all spiritual wisdom and understanding and that she may learn the precious lesson of perseverance and patient endurance - and not give up when pressure press in on every side, but run the race set before her, looking to Jesus.. the Author and Finisher of her faith, in Whose name we pray,
