Proverbs Chapter 31 is good example of a religious prayer for the mother-daughter relationship. A shorter prayer, found in the first book of Samuel, reads "Let her learn early in life that to obey You, God, is the best way to the life her heart truly desires."

For a non-denominational option, a classic poem is also appropriate. Examples include Dorothy Parker's "Prayer For A New Mother" and "The Black Lace Fan My Mother Gave Me," written by Eavan Bowland. A number of well-known poems, listed by theme, are available on the website FamousPoetsandPoems.com.

"Prayer for a Daughter," written by comedian Tina Fey, is a prayer for the modern mother to her daughter. An excerpt reads, "May she be beautiful but not damaged, for it’s the damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the beauty." The full version of the prayer appears in her book, "Bossypants."
