As a born-again Christian and family man, I understand my family’s key role in my life. Fifteen years in the ministry have taught me the importance of having a family by my side. Since God supports the family unit, He would like it to function in ways that do not offend Him. This has always led me to pray for my family so that we live lives that do not offend God. I particularly pray for my daughter, who is still young and does not know God well. I would like her to grow up to know and honour God. Like me, you might have a young daughter and have been asking yourself where to find prayers for your daughter.
“Dear Lord, I am knocking at your Holy door to ask for your divine healing over my daughter. She is a young girl who is quite sick at the moment. She has lost her happiness, appetite, and even weight. This experience is not only painful and challenging to her but also to us, the parents. Seeing her in that condition is seriously hurting us. I pray for your divine healing on the child so we can get our happiness back. May she be healed by your wounds as in Isaiah 53:5. Amen – inspired by Isaiah 53:5. This is an example of a prayer that you can tender to God to ask for something for your daughter, in this case, healing.
I would like you to join me as we delve into this article to examine the prayers you can offer for your daughter. We will also discuss the number of times you should say these prayers and if you can say these prayers to a grown daughter. Read to the end to learn about these and how to pray for your daughter.
10 Prayers for daughter
Prayer for Good Health
Dear God, I am humbly coming to you with a prayer, asking for good health for my daughter. She is still experiencing growth and is prone to fall sick at any moment. As a young and cheerful girl, I pray you secure her health. You are the God who gives us good health and takes sicknesses away as promised in Exodus 15:26. As the greatest healer; I humbly ask you to remove any hidden sicknesses from her body so that she may live perfectly; amen—inspired by Exodus 15:26.
This prayer asks God to secure your daughter’s health so that she doesn’t face the challenges of sicknesses while experiencing growth. The prayer asks God, the divine healer, to clear her young body of diseases and give her the perfect health that the Israelites were promised in Exodus 15:26.
Prayer for the Protection of my Daughter
In Psalms 91:1-16, you promised the protection of all who dwell in your shelter. You promised that those seeking refuge in your house should not be turned away and their needs would be well cared for. You promised to shield them under your great wings and that they would not face any difficulties in your presence.
God, my daughter needs your protection, for she will not always be in my vicinity. My parental protection is limited, and I cannot always look at her. As she moves around, I pray for your protection from harm and evil. As the enemy tries to fight to ensure that she does not grow well, I pray that you be her shield and that with your divine powers, no harm will ever get to her. May she grow well to know you and always honour you as her protector in Jesus’ name. Inspired by Psalms 91:1-16.
This prayer asks God the protector to come in and offer His divine protection to your daughter whom you cannot always be looking after. As a parent, you have your duties to run and need someone to perfectly look after your daughter and protect her from any harm. The only one who can perfectly do that job is God.
Prayer for my daughter to live a long life
Lord, I humbly pray that you give my daughter the long life you promised her in Exodus 20. While giving the Israelites commandments, you promised children they would live a long life in the land you would give them. I pray that my daughter can take advantage of your great promise.
Teach her how she may understand the importance of honouring her father and mother. May she learn to honour and respect any other parents and highly respect you.

Dear God, I am humbled before your feet. As a child, I was taught that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, as in Proverbs 1:7. I have learned to fear you, father, in my pursuit of your knowledge. Knowledge from you is endless and cannot be exhausted. Your knowledge is long-lasting and leads to light and not darkness.
I pray that you teach my daughter with your knowledge. May she grow up to fear you so that she gets your knowledge. With your knowledge, she will never suffer at the hands of the devil and will know you until the end of times; amen. Inspired by Proverbs 1:7.

Prayer for my daughter to be wise
Father Lord, I bless your name for giving me this beautiful child. My daughter has brought us so much joy, and I am forever thankful. I am humbled to ask that you gift my daughter with the wisdom of King Solomon in 1 King 3. As King Solomon asked for wisdom, as a father, I kindly ask for the same for my daughter.
With this wisdom, she will know how to choose light over darkness; with your wisdom, she will learn to choose you over the devil, who is a liar; with your wisdom, she will learn to traverse the world in the correct paths while ensuring that she is honouring you. I bless your Holy name because you will answer my prayers, amen. Inspired by 1 Kings 3.

My daughter needs clothing and shelter. She needs to have an education too. Please provide us with all the necessary needs for us to raise her well and in the best way a parent should. May we never lack her basic needs, and may she never doubt our ability to provide for her as our child.

Dear God, I humble myself before you today, asking you to give my daughter courage. To take on this life, she will need courage from you.

Like the Israelites in Deuteronomy 1:6-8, may she be strong, courageous, and trust in your leadership.
May she have the courage to take on life and never give up. May she have the courage to make her most important decisions, and may the decisions be influenced by you.

If my daughter grows up to know and choose you, her lives here and in heaven will be secured. In John 17:3, you have promised eternal life to those who know and acknowledge you. May she know the ways you deem right, and may she follow them without doubting you or even questioning you. May your name be blessed forever and ever, amen. Inspired by John 17:3.

May she grow up to be a kid full of joy and happiness that she was received with. May she grow up to be a source of joy for every person who interacts with her.

This means that we are advised to pray without stopping. As long as you have the time, say several prayers for your daughter that she may grow up well in the ways of the Lord.
Can I say these prayers for a grown daughter?
