Nieces are a special blessing to their families! They get extra love and attention from their aunts and uncles, and are ready friends with their cousins.
Saying a prayer for my niece is one of the best gifts I can give to her, to lift her up in prayer to our gracious Heavenly Father. Spend some time each day supporting your niece in prayer.
Prayer for my niece: A List of 8 Prayers and Blessings
These prayers cover a variety of topics and occasions to help pray for your niece. You can use these prayers as inspiration for your own prayers, or you can pray through them with a sincere heart. Feel free to adapt these prayers to your niece’s age and circumstances, knowing that you’d pray differently for a little niece vs. an adult niece.
A Prayer for my Niece to Know Christ’s Love
As Christians, we want people to know the love of Jesus Christ. We especially want those close to us to experience a personal relationship with Him. Pray along with this prayer to ask God for this to be done in her life.
I love You so much! I want my niece to know You and love You, too.
I pray that she would know about You at an early age, and that she would experience the joy of salvation through Jesus Christ. I ask that You would help me to share the Good News of Your Gospel with her through words, and also in compassion and kindness.
Please surround her with others who love You and communicate Your love to her.
If she doesn’t know You right now or has walked away from You, I pray that You would soften her heart and draw her to You. May she know how loving, mighty, compassionate, and forgiving You are. I trust Your timing for this answer.
Thank You, Lord, for Your perfect will for her.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Healing Prayer for my Niece in Difficult Times
It is so difficult to see your wonderful niece struggling, whether it is a hard day, a broken heart, or a medical problem. It can be tempting to worry excessively. The far more productive action to take is to take that prayer request to our mighty God, and trust Him with the answer. Here is a sample prayer to pray for your niece during a difficult time.
Dear Heavenly Father,
You know the challenge facing my niece today. It is painful to think of her dealing with this hard time right now, and in the future. It hurts to see her going through this.
My prayer for my niece is that You would heal her from this. I trust in Your perfect will for her, that You will work in her life. You work all things together for the good of those who love You (Romans 8:28), and I pray that You would do that for her.
Father, I pray that You would show her Your presence as she struggles through this challenge. May she draw closer to You and trust in You for what she needs. May she see that You will never leave her (Hebrews 13:5). Please bless her with good health.
Please help me to be equipped to help her and her family with what they need right now. May I be a support and comfort to them. Please encourage them and bless them today.
I ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
A Prayer for my Niece for a Promising Future

I love my niece, but no matter how much I love her, You love her more! Your love is so big for each of Your children. Thank You for loving her, and loving me, too.
I pray that You would bless my niece with a close walk with You. I pray that she would be open to You and would not push You away. I ask that You would help her see Your truth and not be held captive by the hollow philosophies of this world (Colossians 2:8 NIV).
I pray that she will make good choices. I also pray that You would guide her towards Your will for her, and that she would have a bright future in doing what You have called her to do.
Please bless her in what You have for her today. May she glorify You!
In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

A Prayer for My Niece for Joy
Each day of your sweet niece’s life can’t be full of perfect circumstances. There will be at least some days where happiness is fleeting. But as Christians, we can have the joy of the Lord everyday! Pray for your niece to grow in this joy as she starts and grows in her personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
It is my desire to see my beloved niece be a Christian and grow in You. I pray that as she takes these steps of trusting in You more and more each day, that she would experience Your great joy.
May You fill her with the Holy Spirit, that she would exhibit the fruit of the Spirit, including joy (Galatians 5:22-23).
May she not be reliant on happiness, though I pray that You would give her many things to enjoy. May she find her true and lasting joy in You.
May I exhibit this joy in my life as well.
In Jesus’ powerful and holy name, Amen.
A Prayer for My Niece for Righteousness
You never want to see your dear niece struggling with bad habits or sin, or anything that draws her away from the Lord. This prayer for righteousness asks the Lord to work in your niece’s life to keep her from sin.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I lift up my niece to You in prayer. I see her struggle with things that draw her away from You. It is breaking my heart and I know it breaks Yours, too.
I pray that You would open her eyes to this sin, and that she would turn away from it in repentance. I pray that she would see the destructiveness of sin, and the joy of following You.
Please show her the right path. May she do good works to glorify You, knowing she is saved by Your divine grace.
May she look to You for strength to break free of sinful habits. Please provide for her to be protected from opportunities to be entangled again in this deceptive sin.
I pray that You would give her people in her life to mentor her, support her, and advise her in living a godly life. Please help me to be a role model to her in living a life that glorifies God. I pray that you would provide for many people like this in her life, including family members and other people who care for her walk with You.
Please help my niece today!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
