Oh y’all! I cannot begin to explain how excited I am for October! This is the fifth year I’ve taken the 31 Days Blogging Challenge and I am more excited about this series than any other I’ve written. It’s going to be amazing … I just know it. Here’s what I have planned …

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!

    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.

    1. Yes. Just yes. Love you … and those two beautiful girls of yours.

    2. Been there – most probably WAY worse… (Just ask her. LOL)

    1. I am glad you are joining us, Jennifer!! And that you are praying for your girls even at such young ages. What a blessing to them!!

  38. 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.

    1. Check out Brooke McGlothlin‘s book, Praying for Boys! Also The MOB Society shares a Scripture-based prayer for boys every day on their Facebook page.

  44. 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!

    1. Stacie, prayer is such a powerful weapon against the enemy … and I love how it brings families together before the Lord. I will be praying for your family!

  46. 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.

    1. Oh wow, girl! I totally get it … my daughter will turn 16 this month and I can’t stop thinking about how little time we have left with her in our home. Did you sign up for the monthly prayer calendars? If not, you can do so by clicking here ~~> Prayers for Girls
