Prayer of Praise for My Daughter:
Psalm 139:13: “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.“
Dear Heavenly Father, my heart is full today. I humbly can’t comprehend that, from your love, you have known my baby girl before creation; and that you chose to knit her together in your mighty power. To think you did this in response to my prayer for this little girl. You are truly the author of all life who gives perfect gifts to his children.
OPTIONAL: (I’m petitioning you to put your loving arms of protection around my little girl’s mother. Be with her through the labor and delivery journey. May the attending physicians deliver the care she needs for the delivery and rapid recovery.)
I lift up this precious baby girl you are delivering to our family. She is truly a miracle of your creation. Bless this child. Bless her health, her heart, and her soul. She comes into a fallen world as an innocent child. Lord, you tell us in Prov. 22: 6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” I pray you will guide me daily to be the parent that pours into my daughter’s life so she, without a doubt, knows the way to go spiritually. I am ready to mold her heart, with your help, into a young lady that honors and seeks you. I pray she grows to be a servant for the things of God. May she be a tender self giver, aware of others around her.
I pray as the parent to have the means to support her in a comfortable lifestyle, not indulging her but making her comfortable with her basic needs met. I will take my role seriously to teach her to love you and her country and to be a productive citizen. Please teach her to be grateful for all the good in her life.
Help me guard and protect her in the days and years ahead.
Thank you, Abba Father, for giving us this bundle of joy. Keep her under your wings and hide her from the face of evil. May your face shine upon her today. Amen
Prayer for the Health of My Newborn Daughter:
Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.”
I thank you for the precious gift of my newborn daughter. She is a blessing from you and I am so grateful to have her in my life. Today, my concern is her health.
I pray for your protection and care over her health. Please give her strength and vitality, and keep her free from any harm or illness. Help her to grow and develop in all the ways you have planned for her.
I pray the medical team treating her has the wisdom to identify any physical infirmities she has. You send us physicians, but I acknowledge you are the Great Physician who brings full and total healing. You tell us in 1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” I am claiming that scripture over my daughter.
Thank you for your love and grace. I trust in your plan for my daughter’s life and give you all the glory. Amen.
