Important Prayers for Your Daughter

Whenever you start praying for your daughter or anyone else, there are so many different aspects you can pray about. You may want to make a simple calendar and pray for different specific focuses each day. For example, on Sunday you could pray for your daughter’s relationship with God. Monday’s prayer focus could be on your daughter’s relationship with others and her friendships.

You could also simply pray for each of these things every day. There is no magical way to pray for your daughter, but consistency and daily prayer is key to allowing God to work in her life. As a mother, your prayers have the ability to surround your daughter with God’s protection and chase the Devil away. Your daughter has a free choice every day, but your prayers can multiply God’s ability to work in her life.

I know my daughter better than anyone else, I know the pain that she feels, the hopes and dreams she has, and the questions she has about life. So in my prayer for my daughter, I can pray for those specific needs that she has right now and give God permission to work in her life. You can do this too!

When you pray for your daughter, ask God for wisdom to know what to pray about for your daughter. Let your daughter know that you are praying for her and that you will always love her no matter what she is going through. Ask her what you can pray for in her life.
