I’ve been thinking and praying a lot about Abbie’s life and the kind of person I hope for her to be, the beliefs I pray I can instill in her, and the things that she will someday hold dear to her heart. I thought I’d share since so many of my loved ones read this blog..feel free to join me in praying for my daughter’s life!
I pray that, even now, as you are knitting Abbie together in my womb that You would be instilling a spirit of joy and peace within her. I pray that you would be instilling in her spirit a desire that longs for you from a young age. Lord, I pray that you would guard her heart and her steps. Let her always run to You in both times of happiness and also in the tough times when it is most difficult to come to You. Show Justin and I how we can teach her Your ways and be examples to her.
I pray for a life of purity. Not just physically, but in all aspects of her life. I pray for Your protection over her. Protect her from others and wrong choices..call her to a higher standard, God. A standard that glorifies You. I pray those same things for her future husband. I pray that You would be guiding her future husband’s parents wisdom as they raise a man of integrity.
Lord, thank You so much for entrusting us with Abbie. She is fearfully and wonderfully made. You chose her for us and we thank You for who she is and who she will be. I pray that You would fill her with all things that are noble, true, just, pure, lovely, of virtue, and anything praiseworthy…let her think on those things just like Your word instructs.
We thank You in advance for the gifts that you will bless her with. Please help her realize those gifts from a young age and let her always use them to glorify You name, Jesus.
Father I pray that you would fill Abbie’s life with good relationships, first with You Lord. Help her seek after Godly things. Please bless our relationship with her as her parents. Help us show her and let her feel our unconditional love just as You show that to us. May she rise up and call us blessed. We ask for friends for her that she would feel accepted and be influenced by good kids.
We ask that You would keep her path straight and that You would prepare and lead her way. I pray all of this in Jesus’ name…Amen.
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3
