31 Verses to Pray for Your Girl.

Starting Wednesday I’ll be sharing a verse and a short prayer every day for the month of October. That’s it — we’re just going to pray Scripture on behalf of our beautiful girls. If you have a daughter — baby, teenager, or full grown momma herself — this is for you.  If you aren’t a girl momma but you’ve got a boy who one day will be looking for wife — this is for you. If you teach Sunday school or third grade or a college composition class and there are girls you influence — this is for you.  And, if you’ve been feeling weary and worn, needing a season of encouragement from the Lord — good news, my friend, this is for you too!

Pray these verses for your daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces, students, peers — or even yourself!

This post will serve as an index for all the prayers. Don’t worry if you get behind — just start back up. Just pray and find the beauty and power in praying the Word of God on behalf of the girls in your life. I promise, you’ll be so glad you did!

Read the Psalms this summer with Scripture Dig!


  1. I am here and already on my knees. This is exactly what is needed for the season I’ve just entered. Just when I got used to smooth sailing I’ve been hit with two teens/tweens. That are girls. Two completely different personalities. Two identity crises. I’ve had more “where did I go wrong” moments than I care to even own up to as of late. Someone save me. I am drowning.

  2. Praying for my two sweet daughters ages 6 & 4! Thankful for this opportunity to join other mommas in prayer for our girls!

  3. This couldn’t have come at a better time! Praying for my 11 yr. old daughter, who is adjusting to our recent move to a new city, and going into public school after 3 yrs. of homeschooling.

  4. I will be praying for my 2 daughters, 1 with special needs. I will also be praying for my Mom, Mom in law, Sister in laws, and my nieces. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful experience. I am happy to dedicate my month for each of these girls that are close to my heart.

  5. Joining you, praying for my sweet girl, Abigail, she’s 12. We need this, I love your idea of posting scripture prayers on your daughter’s bathroom mirror, I want to do that for her. Thank you!

  6. I will be praying for my dear Gracie girl – just about to turn 12! So precious. And I like what someone else said – to pray for your son’s future wife. I will do that too – but my 9 year old boy might be slightly mortified when I tell him! Heehee!! 😉

  7. I’ll be praying for my girls, 4 and nearly 2, and for our third baby on the way – not sure if it’s a boy or girl yet!

  8. For great-nieces, Casiday, Greer & also for Katie, a young lady in my church…this is a great idea…so happy to be part of it. I will also be praying for my special niece…

  9. Praying for my sweet daughter and friend, Denine.
    (And for the young woman who will someday be our granddaughter-in-law.)
    And for the precious Moms in my church family.

  10. I was so excited to stumble over this site tonight. I’m joining the MOBsociety to pray for my boys for 21 days in October, and now I can add 31 for my girls!
    And it definitely doesn’t hurt my feelings that you are an Alabama girl. I look forward to walking these next few days with you. Oh, I have 4 daughters 25, 21, 20 and 8, young to old they all need a mom’s prayers! (And 3 boys – 21,13 and 10.)

  11. For my 2 girls. My oldest (14) is a freshman in a private high school after being homeschooled for 9 years. It is a big adjustment for her. My youngest (10) is in 5th grade and homeschooled.

  12. Praying for my 5 daughters and my 7 grand daughters. The generations that come after us are under attack every moment of every day. They need the hedge of protection that only a prayer can provide. Thank you for this timely reminder!

  13. I will be praying for my amazing, beautiful, challenging, 11 year old daughter! I think this is exactly what we need!

    • Amy, I relate to having an amazing, beautiful, and challenging daughter .. in fact, this series was born from my realization I could not change her {or me!} but the power of Scripture transforms!

  14. I love this! I am joining in today and will be praying for my beautiful 19 yr old daughter, Julie, as well as my brand new (as of June 7) daughter-in-love, Jenny. I think I will additionally pray for my 13 yr old’s future wife 🙂

  15. I will be praying for my 1 year old daughter, Rosalie, and her older sister (my step-daughter) Anabelle. I believe young girls and teens need all the prayers they can get now a days!! I love this 31 days of praying for your girls, it’s just what I needed. Thanks 🙂

  16. I love these prayers , my thought is to print them, put them in a journal and give them to my girls. I am also going to include their favorite verses. The only drawback is finding something similar for my boys. LOL thank you for having these prayers everyday. I see it in my girls lives everyday.

  17. I think this is so great! Blessed to be a part of something that builds up and empowers our young girls / women! The world works so hard to tear them down… Help guide them to be a force against that!

  18. I’m praying for my daughter who is 15 years old going on 25. I feel like I’m sinking and can’t get up with her!! I love her so much..HELP!!

    • I am right there with you! My girl is also 15 … and every day I am more and more aware of how much I need Jesus and His Word to guide my every word and action. So glad you are here with us!!

  19. I am praying for my soon to be 14 year old and 9 year old daughters, their friends and the future wives of my 16 and 8 year old step sons. My family has been through a very hard time this year and I think this is just what we need to bring us closer to God and closer together! Thank you for what you do!

  20. Feeing anxious and overwhelmed thinking about the future, especially for my oldest girl. I just want time to slow down. I don’t like this growing up stuff! Glad I found your site, and I know it will be meaningful for me to focus on specific prayers for my sweet girls! They are 16, 12, and 9.

  21. What a treasure to find this resource. I’ll be praying in October for my 10 and 12 yr old daughters. Right after I Pray for them in September. Now to find that calendar! Thank you so much for this website.

  22. I found this at the perfect time. I am praying for my daughter. She is 16 and is struggling with loss, insecurity, anxiety/depression. Really overall loneliness. I asked God for guidance and this is what I found. I thank you for your words and wisdom. God bless you.

  23. This is wonderful. Thank you so much. I will be praying for my beautiful daughter Anna Elizabeth Harris, age 18. She is a freshman in college , we both are adjusting to new phases of life.❤️

  24. I will be praying for my 3 daughters, (ages 3, 13 and 16), for the future wives of my 4 sons, for my younger sisters and for all my nieces as well! Thanks so much!
