Prayer for My Daughter

Virgin in disguise
A wall hanging depicting an indigenous mother and her daughter, Fábrica La Aurora, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México

The day of her birth was six years ago—
How quickly my daughter has grown!
The fruit of my womb is graceful and fair—
I’m happy to call her my own!
I pray for this child, the fruit of my womb,
I pray for her both night and day;
I ask that the gods will grant her the strength
To follow a right and true way.

  1. A beautiful and hopeful prayer.

  2. Poetic prayers are the best.

  3. Once you have children you think and feel differently with the responsibility you now have. As I remember we always were praying that we had done the right thing and made the right decisions as they were growing up.

  4. This is a beautiful prayer

    much love…

  5. She is on the right path already of that I am sure
