Mother’s prayer for her daughter
Why should we raise prayer for mother and daughter relationship? Mother and daughter relationships can be incredibly complex. Mothers, having been through life and trying to guide an often resistant daughter. And daughters trying to forge their own path. There is bound to friction.
In some cases, it ends up in bitter hatred that is carried forward for a lifetime. Everything we see in the physical has matching causation in the spiritual realms. We understand that our battle is not against flesh and blood.
Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Often times we are too blinded by our desire to be principled and right. This is while our daughters may be blinded by their stubbornness, or a resolve to do things their own way.
If we as mother begin to understand that our wit and wisdom are not what carry our daughters forward. It is prayer that influences and guides there where words fail.
One of the most inspirational prayer warriors I have read about is Mariama Thampy from India. She has a day set every week where she intercedes for her children.
I believe it is every Wednesday that she fasts and prays for her children. Her book is linked to below. Get it. It is will transform your prayer life.
This is important because most of the things that manifest later have already been seeded in the spirit. That is why fighting in spirit is key. I didn’t actually buy the book above. It was nowhere to be found online, so I emailed the author.
I am eternally grateful to the wonderful man from Ireland. I received a package in the posts with several copies of this book, as well as another equally powerful one. May God reward him.
Prayer for mother and daughter relationship
A Mother’s pray for her daughter
Psalm 119:11 New International Version (NIV)
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Father, I bless your name. I thank you for my wonderful daughter. My prayer is that you would walk with her always. May her eyes always be drawn to the things of your kingdom. Guard her heart oh God, that she would not follow it unto distraction.
Dear God, may your word be truly hidden in her heart. Let it be a lamp unto her feet and a light on her path. May she live by every confession that comes from her mouth. Let your word never depart from her lips. Guide her to live in your will. She will not dwell in sin! In Jesus’ name. Amen
1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
Father, I thank you for my daughter’s friends. Those that are, those that have been and those still to come. Surround her with good company, oh Lord. Remove any bad company from her midst. She will be of good character. She will not be corrupted. I pray that you would use her to be of good influence on her peers. In Jesus’ name. Amen
1 Kings 3:9
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
Father, I pray that you would open my daughter’s eyes. Grant her the gift of discernment. Teach her to know what is right and what is wrong. Give her the strength and boldness to stand for her convictions.
10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Lord even while she may be unmarried, may she never forget her worth. May her worth never be defined or derived from any man. She is complete in Christ. She is whole in Christ. My daughter is a wife of noble character. Let her be found by a man worthy of her value. Give her wisdom to wait on you.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
Father, may she be filled with confidence in her self and in you. Let fear and doubt never be a plague for her. Whatever she sets her mind to, see her through, in Jesus’ name. She adds value wherever she sets her feet, in Jesus’ name. Let her bring good, and not harm all the days of her life!
3 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
In Jesus’ name. My daughter is enterprising. She is a creator and a builder of things. Father, bless the works of her hands. May she never be comfortable in her slumber. She is a sower of seed and a smart harvester.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
Father, my daughter grows whatever seed is placed into her hands. She is a good steward. My daughter carries great value from afar and enriches those around her.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
My daughter is a provider! By her own hands and enterprise, she provides for herself and for those around her. Those we trust in her are blessed.
We are good for each other
Lord, I pray for the relationship between my daughter and I. There will be no strife between us. Even when we disagree, you are our mediator, oh Lord. Keep peace between us. May our love for one another continue to grow.
Show me where she hurts, and how I can be of aid. Teach us to be equally vulnerable to one another. As she grows, may she be a stronger ally for me, as I will always be for her. In the mighty name of Jesus! Amen
Prayer for peace between mother and daughter
One of the most heartbreaking things that we have encountered in ministry is broken relationships. Mothers and daughters who no longer communicate. Grandchildren are cut off from relationships with their grandparents. That is beyond tragic. Our prayer today that God would bring resolution where there is need.
Father, we know your breaks when families are torn apart. We stand with every mother and daughter that have been torn apart. Lord soften their hearts. Rekindle that flame of love in them. As you have forgiven them, and continue to, grant them grace to forgive others.
Where there has been wrong done, Lord correct it. Where it cannot be corrected, Lord we pray that you would bring reconciliation. We come against any voices causing strife. May their wicked ways be exposed. In the mighty name of Jesus! Amen

Prayers for adult children and relationship. The bond between a mother and a daughter is one that should be valued. However, a mother and daughter relationship can be challenging and complex, due to the stages of life that children face. At every stage of your daughter’s life, the natural response of a mother is they want to continue to teach and nurture their child. However, as your daughter continues to grow and develop, they are keen to become young adults, experience life, become independent and develop their own relationships. A mother’s prayer for her daughter is therefore fundamental at every stage of their life.
This article aims to explore the reasons why we should pray for our children and the importance of a mother–daughter relationship. This article also aims to outline how a mother’s prayer for her daughter can protect and encourage throughout life.
Why we should pray for our children?
We are living in a fallen world and there is an expectation that we raise our children in a society where values are contrary to the word of God. We live in a world that wants to hurt and destroy our children with sexual exploitation, peer pressure and girls been informed by negative social images that they need to be a certain size and look a certain way to be accepted. It is for this reason why we need to pray for our children and cover them in prayer against the plans and wiles of the enemy who comes to kill steal and destroy. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” (John 10:10).
We need to pray for our children so that we remain alert, aware and equally hearing God’s voice in every situation as a family unit. Mothers should pray for their daughters, praying a prayer of blessing over them. Therefore, a mother’s prayer for her daughter is important because the prayer of blessing over your daughter cannot be reversed (Numbers 23:20). It is through a mother’s prayer for her daughter that blessings can be spoken over her, thus enabling your daughter to be confident in Christ Jesus. “The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-26).
Praying for our adult children is also a divine assignment and it is the duty and responsibility of every mother. A mother’s prayer for her daughter empowers, protects and defends them. Equally a mother’s prayer for her daughter nurtures them spiritually giving them the spirit of excellence in all that they do. A mother’s prayer for her daughter destroys every weapon formed against them. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper…” (Isaiah 54:17).
Mother’s prayer for her daughter
Dear Jesus, thank you for who you are. You are indeed omnipotent and omnipresence. I am grateful that you can see into our hearts. So right now God, will you see into the heart of my daughter? Purify her heart and protect her from all evil thoughts and ideas. Help my daughter to see the beauty you have placed inside of her. And help her to not be blinded by the world’s definition of beauty. Father help her to be secure in who you say she is; fearfully and wonderfully made; a royal priesthood, a chosen generation.
I pray for Your spiritual, physical and emotion defense over my daughter. Help her to known that you are her refuge and strength in times of difficulties. Protect her mind from evil conversations and grant her the spirit of discernment. Father, help her to hear your voice clearly and that she will hear nothing but truth. Lord help her to realize that safety can only be found in You and no-one else. So, thank you Father for your love, strength and protection over my daughter in Jesus Name. Amen.
A mother’s prayer for her daughter helps because children are constantly under attack from worldly pleasures, the enemy and the flesh. Therefore, being aware that your daughter is under attack should encourage persistent prayer. A mother’s prayer for her daughter helps because no one can pray for your daughter like you can. This is because you know your daughter intimately and a mother can discern their weaknesses, struggles and hurts.
The importance of mother-daughter relationship
A mother-daughter relationship is important because from birth, a mother takes on the responsibility of caring, cooking and generally looking after their daughter into womanhood. A mother may not necessarily be biologically related; however, a simple definition of a mother is one who can show unconditional love, giving their full support or being a caregiver, in turn helping their daughter progress and develop throughout their life into womanhood. A mother-daughter relationship is important according to the Word of God because a mother helps their daughter to walk in the truth. “I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth” (3 John 1:4).
A mother-daughter relationship is importance because a daughter can be influenced by the behavior, conduct and attitude of her mother. A mother’s prayer is therefore to speak words of wisdom and kindness over them (Proverbs 31:26). Praying over your daughter will cause them to honor and respect you as their mother. Children are commanded to honor their parents/guardians so that they may live to see long days (Deuteronomy 5:16).
Being able to understand the purpose of a mother’s prayer for her daughter, will enable you to pray persistently and effectively in your Christian walk. Knowing why you should pray for your children and the importance of a mother-daughter relationship will also enable you to develop a deeper relationship with God as well as achieve a greater level of self-discipline in praying for others.

Prayer for your Daughter’s Heart
Dear Lord, I know that Your Word does not return void and I’m believing great things for my daughter today:
1. Let her learn early in life that to obey You, God, is the best way to the life her heart truly desires (1 Samuel 15:22).
2. May she find comfort in Your ability, God, to reach her, hold her and rescue her (2 Samuel 22:17-18).
3. Let her find confidence in You, God, even when hard times come and she doesn’t know what to do, by keeping her eyes fixed on You (2 Chronicles 20:12).
4. May she keep herself under control and not give full vent to people and situations that anger her (Proverbs 29:11).
5. Let her walk in the security of Your assigned worth to her. Give her a strong work ethic and health to accomplish all her tasks. Give her a heart that desires to extend her hand to those in need. Protect her for the right husband, a man of respect and godly honor. And let her be a woman of joy and laughter whose Christ-centered character is what makes her most beautiful (Proverbs 31).
May we both grow in our relationship with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer for Our Daughter’s Self-Worth and Purity
Dear Jesus, we weep with you over the number of our kids who are buying into the lie that sexual pleasure is something to experiment with. We pray that our daughters would treasure their sexuality as a true gift from You, and that they would honor that gift by saving it as a precious treasure to give their future spouse. We ask that you would help them to be strong in the face of their own desires and that they would choose purity in the face of temptation.
Lord we also ask that you’d protect our daughters from the idea that they must do anything and everything (including abusing their bodies through eating disorders, drug abuse, or other harmful behaviors) in order to attaining a “preferred” shape or figure. We pray you’d protect our sons from that kind of destructive thinking, and that if they’re tempted to take these kind of drastic measures, that you’d send someone in their lives to stop them. Help them to remember over and over that their identity is not in how they look on the outside but what you see as their potential and worth on the inside.
We pray that our daughters would treasure their health as a gift from God and that they would have a passion to eat nutritious food and to stay active in order to do their part to take care of this treasure. In Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer For Daughter to Find Identity in Christ
Dear Jesus, help my daughter know that we are all born as sinners and separated from God because of our wicked hearts. However, at an early age, help her grasp the life-transforming concept that he does not have to live as a sinner under that condemnation.
Teach my daughter that she has the opportunity to accept a new, beautiful identity that is called “good,” not because of what she has done or what she looks like, but because she is secure in who YOU say she is: treasured, delightful, known and protected. Let her not place her self-worth in accomplishments she may or may not achieve, but let her discover these deeper truths about who You believe she is and build every decision she makes on that sure foundation. In Jesus name, amen.

A Prayer for Daughters Protection
Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my daughter. Keep evil far from her, and help her to trust You as her refuge and strength. I pray You will guard her mind from harmful instruction, and grant her discernment to recognize truth. I pray You will make her strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help her to find rest in Your shadow, as she lives in the spiritual shelter You provide for her. Let her know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that her home on earth is only temporary. In Jesus name, amen.

Prayer for Daughter’s Spiritual Strength
I’m praying my daughter whose hands are limp and whose tongue is silent. Nudge her to pick up her sword. Help her conceive a strategic plan to take back what the enemy has plundered. Lead her to scriptures for every area of defeat. Give her a voice to speak them out loud. Let the enemy know that You are raising up a standard against him with a resurrected daughter. In Jesus name, Amen.
