Just as you did when you were younger, your daughter has to gain independence from you so she can mature into a functioning adult woman. Even so, it doesn’t matter what their age is before they go off on their own, when your daughter is away from you, you just want her back home safe with you. I encourage you to keep letting God know if you’re worried about your daughter.
As your children grow, you have to grow as well–that’s part of being a parent, regardless of how old your children are. You have to grow in your trust in God for their safety and their actions. Praying regularly can help you do that, especially when your daughter is away from home for some reason.
“Our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace” ( Psalm 144.12, NIV).
If you have a son and a daughter, you know that they are different, and you will pray for them differently, and that’s okay. I have two daughters so you can trust that I’ve prayed some serious prayers over the years–some similar to those below. I trust that these prayers will bring you peace for your concern for your daughter.
Will you share your prayer requests and comments with us in the section below? We’d love to hear from you about your prayer journey with God!
Short Prayer For A Daughter To Come Home
Dear God in heaven, I enter into this time of prayer to lift my daughter up to You. She is away from home right now and I’d like for her to return safely. I don’t know how or when, but please bring her back to us–we miss her so much. I pray that you will guide her home and keep her safe in the meantime. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Come Home Safe
I am not sure where my daughter is, Lord God, but I know You do. So, I come to You in prayer asking that You bring her home safe to us. She left home a week ago and left us a note saying she needed to figure things out for herself and “find out who I am.”
I know who she is–she’s my daughter! I don’t really understand this Lord, so I’m having a hard time not being really upset with her. But I’m more worried about her getting hurt, or worse. I pray that whatever she is seeking–truth, guidance, insight–that she find it, and find it soon.
Although she is old enough to do all of this and be out on her own, she doesn’t seem to have any plan. She just needed to be gone from here, which kind of hurt my heart. I want this home to be the safest place for her, where she knows she is accepted and loved.
Help my daughter find herself. And then help her find herself on her way back home. I ask this in the name of Christ, Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Return Home From College
I’m so happy to hear from my daughter, Lord! She is going to be able to come home for the holidays! We thought she might have to stay at school and work but she just texted me and let me know she’ll be home in two weeks.
Thank You, Lord, for making this happen. I am filled with gratitude to know our baby will be home with us. I pray for her trip, even this far in advance. May the weather be pleasant enough so she can travel safely, without incident. I pray her car works properly and has no issues that would stop her from coming home.
Guide her home, God, by Your hand. I thank You for this good news. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Come Home Safe From the Hospital
Lord God, our daughter has had to be in the hospital for the last week due to a sudden illness and emergency surgery. Thank you for a successful surgery outcome, and that she is feeling well enough to come home. That is only by Your healing hand!
I pray for her to return home. I pray for her body to continue to heal and recover from all she’s experienced. May we be able to help her with anything she may need as she comes home. I give You thanks and praise that her work has been so understanding, and have given her extra time off to fully get back to normal. That is such a blessing.
I am looking forward to her coming home and I pray there are no obstacles or delays. In the name of Jesus, I pray this prayer, Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Return Home Safe From A Trip
Father God, my daughter has received an invitation to go on a school trip that is fully paid for, but it will last for ten days! I’m so very happy for her, as this is a big honor–only 30 kids in the whole state get to go on this trip.
But I am also worried because this will be the longest she has ever been away from us, away from home. I pray that she will keep her enthusiasm and excitement and that this trip is a wonderful growing experience for her.
I also pray for her safety throughout the trip. Help keep the chaperones attentive to every single person on this trip. May they have safe travel throughout the whole ten days and may no one get injured. I pray for my daughter to come home refreshed and safe from this trip.
While I am excited for her to go, I also want her to come home already–and she hasn’t even left yet. Help me to calm down and trust You for her, and for her safety. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Come Home From A Road Trip With Friends
God, I am glad my daughter feels confident enough to plan and go on a road trip with some of her friends. I guess it says something that I only heard about it from her about two days before she left. I am happy that she feels she knows enough to get this done and not worry about it.
But I am her father and I think I will always have some measure of worry for her. So, I come to You in prayer on her behalf. Help her to come home safely from this road trip. I pray that is it every bit of a wonderful experience as she told me she wanted it to be. I hope nothing bad happens and they see all they wanted to see.
I pray that their car works well and they experience no mechanical problems or wrecks. I pray they stick together and watch out for each other, so that no one is left alone. I pray they exude confidence and maturity so no one will even think of messing with them. Just bring her home safe, Lord, that is my prayer through Jesus. Amen.
Prayer For A Daughter To Come Home Safe From Police Work
Lord God, my daughter is a police officer in our country. She goes out on patrol every night and I pray for her. I especially pray for her tonight as there have been some increased threats of violence in our area. I know this is what she is meant to do, but I worry about her every night.
I’m so proud of what she has accomplished in her career so far, but tonight I just want her to come home safely and uninjured. Please keep her alert and aware of everything that is going on around her as she makes her patrols this evening.
Let her be calm in the face of any challenges and able to de-escalate any high-pressure situation. Surround her with your peace so she can make good decisions all through the night. I ask this all in the name of Jesus, our Protector, Amen.
