I pray that the God of King Jesus our Lord, the father of glory, would give you, in your spirit, the gift of being wise, of seeing things people can’t normally see, because you are coming to know him and to have the eyes of your inmost self opened to God’s light.
I can’t think of a better prayer to pray for our daughters, as well as any of our brothers and sisters in the faith.
This is a plea for what is desperately needed, vitally important to life and daily living, and asks for that which I cannot do for anyone.
This prayers requests what I most want for those I love and what is impossible for me to accomplish for anyone.
That’s a great basis for petitionary prayer:
For what someone needs most…
For that which is impossible for you to make happen…
I wonder what would happen if we prayed more….like this….
