For the Girl Child, Dear Jesus …

a prayer for the children

As Jesus Christ makes his triumphant entry into Jerusalem today, I bring my prayer request for the little girls.

Dear Jesus,

I pray for the little girl child that she would hear and understand how God values and loves her. I pray that she would be accepted and treasured within her culture as someone who has been created in God’s image. I ask for her protection and loving care; that cultures will be transformed in view of the girl child through the knowledge of God’s word. Give her a sense of belonging, O Lord, that she would feel safe and accepted within the family and community. I ask for adequate health care. I ask that you uphold the organizations that look after the rights of the girl child and raise more in her favor. I stand against all forms of sexual exploitation and girl trafficking in the land. I ask, too, that you sanitize the land so that evil will be far from our daughters and they would experience restoration of emotional losses, dignity and self-worth. I pray, O Lord, that you free her from any guilt and self-condemnation. Finally, I pray that you help mothers be the best they can be to these sweet little angels and be conscious to every awakening to informed and wise guidance. In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
