Prayer for My Daughter on Her 12th Birthday
I pray for my daughter to see the beauty in this world and the goodness in people.
Show her how to raise her head in confidence,
yet lower it with humility before You.
Help her to be a life-long learner. May she always gain knowledge, grow in understanding, and find wisdom.
Please God, help her to close her eyes in restful slumber and open them in appreciation of Your glorious morning light.
I offer this prayer for my daughter that she will hear the small still voice inside. Your Voice, the one that brings calm, encourages good choices.
I pray for my daughter to speak carefully: To raise her voice in defense of the weak. To speak soothingly to those in need. To use words that are productive and kind. Be inside and beside her, dear Lord.
