Prayer for my Granddaughter



maddieBy Lillian Penner

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray my granddaughter will not be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes.  But she will clothe herself with the beauty of a teachable, gentle spirit, displaying pure and godly behavior, for this is precious in Your sight.

I pray she will have a balanced view of beauty and charm, clothing herself with attractive and modest apparel, radiating the countenance of a godly young woman, choosing to dress in a way that pleases You.

I pray she will clothe herself with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, making allowances for the faults of others and forgiving those who offend her.  But the most important virtue is love.

Let that peace that comes from Christ rule in her heart.  I pray the words of Christ will live in her heart and make her wise, so whatever she says or does will be pleasing to God.

Moreover, I pray she will grow up to be a godly woman, loving You and serving You all the days of her life.


C’est Bon,

Love you granddaughter,
