Prayer for my Daughter

Lord, how humbled I am to mother this child … this beautiful, funny, sweet child. I’m awed by her humble heart and her desire to serve others. Thank you for this privilege, this blessed honor of discipling and cherishing one so precious to You.

Give her strength and courage of heart (Psalm 31:24). May she always find her hope in You (Psalm 38:15). Teach her to praise you, even when life is difficult (Psalm 43:5). Give her wisdom to speak less and listen more (James 1:19). I pray she will REJOICE! (Philippians 4:4). Give her a love for others (1 John 3:11) and desire to cling to the power of Your Word (Hebrews 4:12). I pray she will seek wisdom from You (James 1:5) and be obedient to what she learns (Philippians 3:16). Life is getting more complex for her and I pray that she will always cast her cares and concerns on You knowing that You care for her (1 Peter 5:7). May she seek the good plans You have for her life (Jeremiah 29:11) and be filled with the fruit of the Spirit (Ephesians 5:22 -23). But, Lord, more than anything else, I pray that she will KNOW, be absolutely certain that You love her and she is precious to You (Isaiah 43:4).

Amen

  4. I haven't visited your blog in quite a few days (life is busy here and I just haven't been online much). I think it looks lovely! I love how your prayer for Casiday is so Scriptural!
    I have "The Power of a Praying Wife" and have often thought about getting "The Power of a Praying Parent."
