A Mother’s Prayer for Her Daughter

Prayer for Her Relationship with God 


If it weren’t for Your love, and amazing grace, none of us would be able to have a relationship with You.

I am amazed that I can come to You in prayer, and know that You not only hear my pleas but that You welcome me to bring them to You.

There is nothing more that a mother’s heart desires than to see her children walk down the path of life, and avoid the path that leads to destruction.

My desire is to see my daughter live her life to an audience of one, and that one is You, Lord.

Keep her from being conformed to the world and its patterns, and transform her mind according to Your word. 

I know that there are many distractions in this world, and sometimes we can get caught up in them.

But my prayer is that You would make Yourself so evident to my daughter, that she cannot help but abandon all other lesser loves that this world offers.

May she grow in the knowledge of You, and become more like Christ.

May she know that she always has a Heavenly Father who she can turn to in every season of her life.

In Jesus’ name, amen. 

Prayer for Daughter’s Safety 

Dear God,

Thank You for blessing me with my daughter.

I think of all the years that You have faithfully carried us.

Thank You for choosing me to be her mom, and for allowing her to be my daughter.

I know that I cannot always be there to look out for her or to protect her, and that my capabilities fall short.

But I know that it is not so with You. Your word tells us that You are omnipresent, You are everywhere, at all times.

You are with her when she wakes, You are with her when she leaves home and when she returns.

You keep watch over her, and know her every thought and deed. 

As a mother, this gives me great comfort and peace, knowing that You are always near.

My prayer is that You would protect my sweet daughter from any physical harm.

Help her to be cautious when she is alone, or when she is out of the house.

Please protect her from any spiritual attacks, and from entertaining things that are the enemy’s attempt at luring her away from You.

May she know that You are a shield and a strong toward that she can run to, and may she find solace and comfort in Your presence.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer for A Courageous Heart


I know that there are times throughout life that we feel fearful, or shrink back from what lies in front of us.

The risk of trying something new, of taking on an opportunity, of being rejected, or not knowing how things will unravel can sometimes leave us paralyzed with fear.

I know that there are moments when my daughter does, or will feel overcome with fear.

My prayer is that You will strengthen her heart in those moments.

When she feels like turning away in fear, I ask that You fill her with Your peace.

Help her to know that she can come to You in prayer, knowing that You will never leave or forsake her. 

Help her to grow confident in the gifts that You have given her, and not to doubt her ability to learn, grow and do well.

Remind her that a part of courage means taking a risk without any guarantees of what will happen, yet she can always walk away with a learning experience.

Help her to see that her weaknesses are what reveal Your strength and power at work in her.

May she grow in her trust in You, and know that You are with her, wherever she goes and whatever she does.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer For Her Character 


I am so grateful for my daughter’s life! Thank You for making her how she is, and for how raising her has changed me for the better too.

I know that there is no better place for her to be than in Your presence, pursuing Your will, and walking in the example that Christ has set for us.

My prayer is that she would submit every area of her life to You.

May she seek You for guidance, wisdom, comfort, and peace.

May she grow in her knowledge of You, and grow in Christlikeness too.

May she not only be focused on what is on the outside, but remind her that it is the heart that You look at.

May her heart be responsive to Your word, and to Your Holy Spirit.

In times of hardship or trials, remind her that the testing of her faith produces patience.

May she grow in the fruit of the Spirit, and display love, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, forgiveness, joy, gentleness, goodness and self-control.

May she bear fruit that is worthy of repentance.

May others look at her life and see Christ through her.

May her life be a testament to the work of Christ that is able to redeem and transform one’s life.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
