A Prayer for the Daughters of God
I love you! You are great and deserve our praise. There is none like You. You are our devoted God. (2 Samuel 7:22) You are the One and Only. Your Words are powerful and true. (Hebrews 4:12) Before we call You answer. While we are yet praying You will hear. (Isaiah 65:24) This prayer will not return void, it will surely accomplish what it is sent to do. (Isaiah 55:11) Manifest Yourself to Your daughter in this prayer. (Isaiah 11:2)
Father, my sister has a continuing and gnawing ache in her heart. (Psalm 73:26) Satan has strengthened his arsenal and tricked Your daughter into biting the crippling and paralyzing apple of fear. (2 Corinthians 2:11) Fiery darts and arrows have pierced her heart. (Ephesians 6:16) Fear has become a dripping poison in her broken and bruised heart; she feels every single painful drop and is afraid. (John 14:27) Fear, worry, problems, and unanswered prayers have taken over the space in her heart where Your presence belongs. The only antidote to overcome this poison is Your Divine Love. (1 John 4:18)
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts our fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
1 John 4:18
Your daughter’s heart is Your dwelling place. Where Your perfect love makes It’s home fear must bow and vacate. (Jeremiah 9:3) What a relief to know Your Truth will set her free from this suffocating fear and the lies whispered in her ear will silence. (John 8:32) The truth is; Your daughter is the Apple of Your Eye. (Psalm 17:8-9) Your daughter needs not live in fear because You are her God, her Rescuer. (Isaiah 41:10) Evict fear from her heart. Take Your rightful place. Create in her a clean heart for Your Holy Presence to dwell. (Psalm 51:10)
Remind Your daughter she is not alone. You are with her. (Deuteronomy 31:8) You have heard even her faintest prayers, seen her many tears, and even collected them in a bottle for remembrance, repayment, and restoration. Repay her by establishing her inner being in the truths of Your Word and not the fickleness of this world. (2 Thessalonians. 3:16) Repay her with the power of Your presence. (Psalm 16:11) Show up for her. Move on her behalf. (2 Chronicles 16:9) Defend her as the Just Judge of her circumstances. (Isaiah 33:22) Protect her heart from the enemy’s tailor-made arrows and darts. (Psalm 68:28)
You are more than aware of the arrows that have hit her. (Hebrews 4:13) You care deeply and are devoted to her deliverance. (Psalm 18:6) This attack on her mind, body, soul, and spirit will in no way prosper against her heart, her destiny, the future plans You have brilliantly prepared for her, or the mighty miracles heading her way. (Psalm 94:9, 1 Peter 3:12, Isaiah 54:17, Jeremiah 29:11) Once removed and healed by Your Mighty Hand these arrow’s scars will transform her into a much wiser, stronger, and an even more beautiful woman of God. (Isaiah 61:3) You are enthralled with this kind of beauty. (Psalm 45:11) This inner beauty is unfading and of great worth to You. (1 Peter 3:3-4)
Sister, God knows your heart inside and out. Your heart is His. He created You perfectly for Him. (Psalm 139) His eyes have been set, since the day He created you, to follow you wherever you go. His eyes have never wandered from you and never will. (Jeremiah 24:6) He has taken you by the hand countless times to draw you away from evil. Find your strength in His comfort, care, and compassion as He battles for you the darkness trying to loom over your heart. (2 Chronicles 20:17, Isaiah 42:6, Psalm 23:4) He isn’t going to change His mind about you no matter what you have done, believed, or thought. His desire is for you to love Him with your entire being. (Matthew 22:37) This love will release you from this strangling fear as God takes His rightful place in your heart. (Job 8:6)
If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you are kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.
Psalm 34:18 MSG
You are love starved and You need to Let Him love you. (Psalm 33:18) You have no idea the width, depth, and heights His love has gone for you. (Ephesians 3:18) Not one thing can separate you from this love. (Romans 8:38) His love for you cannot be quenched. (Song of Songs 8:7) He died on the cross so you could forever be with Him. Yes, Jesus ran the race for a prize. That prize is YOU. (Ephesians 2:6-7, John 17:24)
He needs for you to lean on Him and rest. (Song of Songs 8:5) You cannot do “life” without His presence. Life is too hard and you are too weak. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10) May you dance the Divine Dance of life with your God. Take the Hand that created you. (Colossians 1:16, Isaiah 42:6) Hold the palm that has your name engraved on it. (Isaiah 49:16) Stand on the feet that faithfully direct your steps. (Psalm 23:3) Find comfort in the Only Voice to truly calm your fears. (Hebrews 3:7) Look into the eyes that are watching you this moment. (Psalm 33:18, Psalm 34:15, Psalm 145:20) Touch the face of love. (Psalm 27:8) Feel the heartbeat of the Holy One who has built you up, planted you, looked after you, and has set His heart and eyes upon you. (Jeremiah 24:6-7) Then rest your head on His shoulder. (Deuteronomy 33:12) He is your Abba Father and you are His daughter. Dance with your Daddy my friend. (Galatians 4:6, Psalm 30:11) I pray you become so close to Him you don’t know where He begins and you end.
Take His lead and may others follow your pursuit of the King. (Psalm 42:1-2)
Now sister sit still as He removes the arrows, wipes away every tear, and quiets you with His Love. (Revelation 21:4, Zephaniah 3:17)
Father, I pray every word of this prayer comes alive in my sister’s heart.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed.
I love you!
