Prayer for my relationship with my only daughter

by Neema (Nairobi, Kenya)

Dear Lord,

your word says that children are a gift and are to be cherished and loved. I thank you for my beautiful daughter Mugure and the joy that she brings to our family. I am not always understanding of her needs and sometimes I fear that, by my words, I have discouraged her and caused her to question my love for her.

Please Lord, help me show her how much she means to me, give me the gift of discernment so that I am able to correct in love. I pray Lord that you will watch over her, protect her and let her be a blessing not only to me, her father and her brothers but that she will be a light to all that she will meet in her lifetime. I thank you Lord for you are holy and worthy to be praised. I thank you for the many blessings that you have bestowed on me and mine and I pray that you will continue to walk with me and guide me in my journey to becoming a good mother for my daughter. I praise you and I bless your name.
