I pray you’ll be like Deborah, going fearlessly into battle (Judges 4:6-9).

I pray you’ll be like Jephthah’s daughter, encouraging your father (and others) to keep his vows (Judges 11:30-31, 34-36).

I pray you’ll be like Ruth, loyal, a hard worker (Ruth 2:7), and obedient even if the instructions are strange (Ruth 3:1-5).

I pray you’ll be like Hannah, praying fervently (1 Samuel 1:10-16) and keeping your vows (1 Samuel 1:11, 24).

I pray you’ll be like the Shunammite woman, hospitable to God’s servants (2 Kings 4:8-10).

I pray you’ll be like Esther, requiring nothing (Esther 2:15) and willing to risk your life to save others.

I pray you’ll be like the Proverbs 31 woman, virtuous, trustworthy, hard-working, providing for your household’s needs, generous, strong, wise, kind, fearing God, and remembering true beauty is in the heart.

I pray you’ll be like the queen in the time of Belshazzar, remembering and supporting God’s servant (Daniel 5:10-12).

I pray you’ll be like the five wise virgins, prepared to meet the Bridegroom.

I pray you’ll be like Martha, desiring to serve Jesus (but not forgetting to be still and listen as well).

I pray you’ll be like Tabitha (a.k.a. Dorcas), doing good works for others (Acts 9:36, 39).

I pray you’ll be like Phebe, “a servant of the church” and someone who gives help in hard times (Romans 16:1-2).

I pray that God would grant you, “according to the riches of his glory,” to be strengthened with might by His Spirit; that Christ will dwell in your hearts because of your faith; that you will be rooted and grounded in love; that you may be able to know the love of Christ, which gives knowledge; and that you will be filled with the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)

I pray that your love will abound “more and more”; that you will approve of excellent things; that you will be sincere; and that you will be filled with the fruits of righteousness. (Philippians 1:9-11)

I pray that you will be “filled with the knowledge” of what His will is “in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;” that you will walk worthy of the Lord; that you will be fruitful in good works; that you will increase in the knowledge of God; that you will be strengthened with might, according to His power, to be patient and joyful; and that you will give thanks to the Father. (Colossians 1:9-12)
