Prayers for Myself as a Woman


The definition of a woman is complex and influenced by various factors such as cultural and religious backgrounds, societal norms, and personal experiences.

Despite the challenges and discrimination associated with being a woman, they are unique in their strength, support, and love for humanity. Women exhibit powerful and assertive tendencies while also being compassionate and vulnerable.

Although women can be seen as dogmatic and stubborn, they often strive to break down discriminatory standards and attain positions of authority.

The author, as a woman, is unapologetic for who she is and believes she is resilient, indispensable, productive, and valuable.

Ten Major Things to Pray for as a Woman

  1. In as much as everyone strives to live a life of perfection, as a woman, I would want to emulate the woman’s virtues in Proverbs 31. The situational analysis of the Proverbs 31 woman is exceptional, and she is the definition of excellence and perfection- a model for other women to emulate. In reality, most women may not match up to her principles. As a woman, my prayers have to dwell on the grace to adopt her approach to life because it may seem tough to follow.
  2. I have to say a prayer of gratitude, thanking God for the blessings and gifts in my life, including family, health, and opportunities.
  3. As a woman seeking, you need direction, wisdom, and clarity in decision-making and navigating life’s challenges.
  4. Praying for a deepening of relationship with God and strengthening their faith.
  5. A woman symbolizes humility; therefore, praying to seek forgiveness for their mistakes and forgiving those who have wronged them is pertinent.
  6. Pray for God’s protection over yourself, your loved ones, and their community.
  7. Pray for strength to overcome adversity and the perseverance to keep going during difficult times.
  8. Ask for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and those around you.
  9. Seek clarity and fulfillment of purpose and calling.
  10. Pray for healthy and loving relationships with family, friends, and spouses.
