Lord I believe that children are a precious gift from You and I want to simply thank You for my beautiful daughter who is now in her teenage years. Father it seems no time at all since she was a little child and now she is growing into a lovely young woman. Thank You for her life and for the joy that she has brought to us all.
Lord I pray that You would give me wisdom and understanding now that she is growing into womanhood. Help me to be sensitive to her needs and irritations, her dreams and frustrations. I pray that with the passing years we may grow closer to each other and to You. But also Lord I pray that I would be willing and able to let her ‘go’ and not to stifle her development in any way, so that she may become the person You would have her be - and Lord I ask that in Your grace You would bring into her life good, Christian friends.
Father I thank You that my daughter knows You as her personal Saviour and I pray that as the years pass that she will grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that she would mature in the faith so that she may be equipped to stand fast in this evil world. Keep her from temptation I pray, and deliver her from all the perils and dangers that surround us on every side. Guard and guide her Lord, in all her decisions and choices she will be faced with as she grows into adulthood – and thank You Father for this precious gift of a daughter, in Jesus name I pray,
