Praise You for our daughters. You have crafted them beautifully and wonderfully, and given them a purpose in this world unique to them. Every day, we as parents have to let go of them just a little bit more, and hand them back over to You. Father, we know our experience as parents is as unique as the people You’ve created us to be.
Help us to live out our callings as parents according to Your will over the comparison we’re tempted with daily. Bless our daughters to grow up appreciating who they are in Christ. May they know early on who You say they are, and run the race of faith well. Give them the strength to stride through this life alongside their Savior. Bless them with hearts full of compassion and grace. When life gets hard, remind them Your peace never waivers, and You are always there.
Father, we all need to be reminded You are close to the brokenhearted, and Your heart is moved by the prayers of the faithful and righteous. In this world, we will have trouble, but You have overcome the world. We pray today our daughters hold on to these Truths, and live these Truths.
