A Parent’s Prayer for a Daughter
By Stephen J. Binz, Mount St. Mary Academy, Little Rock, Arkansas
God of mercy and love, hear my prayer for my daughter. Be with her in these years as she struggles to hold on to the warm blanket of childhood while stretching toward the independence of adulthood.
Help her to feel loved for who she is and not for what she does. Help her believe that she is good even when she makes bad choices. Let her know that her life has purpose even when she cannot understand why things happen. Enable her to hope in the future even when she is tempted to give up.
When she is discouraged, help her to trust. When she cries, use her tears to wash away the pains. When she is hurt, heal her heart and memories. When she fails, give her the courage to begin again.
Help me to be a guide, a comforter, a model, and a companion along the way. Let me always realize that she is a precious and unique gift in my life. Help me to praise and encourage at least as much as I correct and discipline. Be with me as I try to help her become who You created her to be.
