A prayer for a little girl

Parents often are looking for ways to bless and protect their daughters through the power of prayer.

If you are a new reader here, I wanted to give you a little background on who I am. I am a mom to four little ladies that God has entrusted to my husband and me. I feel so blessed that he picked US to be their parents, that he trusted US to raise them in a Godly home, focused on Him. I pray daily for my girls, and I wanted to share an example of a prayer I have said. I pray that you too pray for your children daily. God bless all these little people growing up in today’s world!

Dear Jesus,

Please help me be the best mom I can be to my sweet little girls. They are growing into such fun little people and I’m tempted to become their friend. Lord, you know I treat my family better than my friends. Please help me to remember that I show my love for them by being their mom and not their BFF’s.

I know that means I have to correct their sweet little faces. Please help me to be fair, loving, and attentive to their physical and spiritual needs. Guide me as I teach them and help me to be a good example. I know they are watching me. They copy me when they wear my shoes, when they want a swoosh of lip gloss, and even the manner in which they speak is similar to mine. Please help me to be a Godly example at all times.

Tenderly remind me that they are never far away and those sweet baby girls are always observing me.

May my actions towards others be something that is worthy of being mimicked. May my words be something they can repeat. May the looks and mannerisms I show be something they are proud to copy. May my love pour onto them and then through them. Let them be a shining example to the world, and may that allow the world to wonder what it is that they know. What is it that the world can learn from my sweet girls? It’s You Lord, You. The love I have for YOU, Lord…let it be evident in my life. Please bless my relationship with my sweet little ladies. Please help me to keep growing in my Christian walk. Please prompt me to pray for my daughters AND myself. Let me not forget myself Lord, because I need prayer as much as they do.

Thank you for blessing and entrusting me with these precious girly girls Lord. My heart overflows every time I look at them. I’m amazed that you trusted ME to be their Mother. I praise God for that blessing every day of my life. I promise to take good care of them for You, Lord Jesus.

It had been a long day as I read a final story to my daughter at bedtime. I’d spent hours trying to figure out how to pay all our bills, knowing my husband was working a job he hated. But it was better than no job at all, which was where we’d been not long ago. We’d prayed and prayed for him to get back into teaching and out of the paper-buying business he’d been stuck in the past few years.

“Please let me see a frog tonight, in Jesus’ name, amen.”

I hugged my four-year-old daughter good-night and tucked her into bed. A frog? Her prayer was simple and cute, something from a book of children’s prayers.

“Well, Michelle, I haven’t seen any frogs yet this year; we’ll just have to wait and see.” I felt bad that she would be disappointed. “God can do anything,” she announced. “Just like Daddy.”

A lump filled my throat. She trusted in her father and her heavenly Father. Difficult times had made me doubt God’s love for me.

I wanted to give her my own reassurance that God loves her even if she doesn’t see a frog. But somehow it wasn’t easy to give her the hope I wasn’t feeling.

I turned off the light and went to the kitchen to do the dishes. With hands sunk in hot, soapy water, I closed my eyes. “I know it’s a silly request, God. But, there’s something about the way she truly believes You’ll answer her prayer. Do You hear her? Do You hear me?”

My husband returned home late from his volunteer work at church with the English as a Second Language classes for refugees. Michelle had been asleep an hour. “Oops, laundry,” I said, jumping up to move the wet clothes from the washer to the dryer. I turned on the garage light, startled by movement near the open door that led to the backyard.

Our dog followed us into the garage and then ran and barked at the corner, stopping to sniff at something I couldn’t see. He whined and wagged his tail and began to growl. “Stop it, Tippy!” I shouted, worried he’d wake up Michelle. I took a careful step forward, ready to run if one of our giant, fast-moving water bugs should suddenly head my way.

It wasn’t a water bug. Near the back door sat a large bug-eyed brown frog. “Outside,” I ordered the dog.

“Quick,” I shouted, “wake up Michelle!”

My surprised husband stared at me as I quickly explained about our daughter’s prayer. I didn’t tell him I hadn’t believed it would be answered or that a froggy prayer was tied to my own fear that God might not care about us. I just told him it was important that she see the frog that night. “Michelle, wake up. Look what I have,” I said, holding the frog close to her. “God really answered your prayer.”

My heart beat faster as I expected her to leap out of bed with excitement. She held the frog and petted it, more sleepy than interested and not the least bit surprised her prayer had been answered. “I knew He would,” she said as she fell back onto her pillow and closed her eyes. But I was overwhelmed at the quick response to her simple prayer. What a loving Father, to see how important such a small child’s request was, a chance for her to see the power of an earnest prayer.

I carefully took the frog out into the front yard and put him into the bushes. He hopped away and I grinned, wondering if he was off to answer someone else’s prayer. My faith took a leap that night as I watched the frog go. Sometimes my daughter teaches me more than I teach her. And sometimes a frog is more than just a frog. This time, it was a small way for God to show me in a huge way how much He loves our family. He is listening.
