Into thy hands I offer the mind, body and spirit of my sister, asking that you raise her in the way you have created her to go. Guide my sister away from all things and people that are not aligned with her highest good. Protect my sister from those things and people that would lead her down a path that is not in alignment with her destiny as you have written it on her heart. Remove from my sister's mind all shadows of fear, doubt, anger and resentment that could cloud her mind or harden her heart. Strengthen my sister to walk away from those things and people that can in any way keep her from the divine path that you have laid before her. Open my sister's eyes that she will see and know danger. Give my sister the courage to resist all temptations that may lead to harm. Teach her to honor her body as your divine temple. Teach my sister to cherish the power of her mind. Teach my sister to use her gifts and talents wisely. Soften my sister's heart with kindness and compassion. Most of all, God, let my child know that you love her. Let my sister feel your love, know your love and express your love at all times, under all circumstances. Draw my sister close to you. Drive my sister away from patterns of thought and behavior that are not productive, honorable, healthy or self-loving. Sprinkle my sister liberally with your grace and light. Teach my sister your ways and guide her to make them a priority in her life. God, teach me to speak to my sister in a way that honors her spirit and encourages her to desire to do good at all times. Forgive me for the fears that I hold in my heart and project onto my sister. Remind me not to take my sister for granted. Teach me how to communicate and demonstrate my love in healthy and loving ways. If there is anything that I do or say that does not set a good example for my sister, please heal me of it right now! In full faith and confidence, I ask that you create a bond of love, joy, harmony, respect and kindness between me and my sister that cannot be broken by the ways of the world. For I know that as I pray this prayer, thy will is done. Let it be so! And So It Is!
