Prayers for Babies

A Mothers Prayer For Her Premature Baby

Heavenly Father, the baby that has been growing within my womb for these many months is now in an incubator fighting for life, and I feel numb and utterly helpless.
Lord, You know the joy and excitement and also the tears and grief that we have gone through these last few weeks and months, and that our emotions are shot through with so many fluctuating feelings because of this unexpected and premature delivery. I pray that in Your pity and grace, You would touch the life of my precious little one and spare their life, and bring them through into full health and strength.
Lift the heavy burden from my heart and help me to come to terms with what has happened, and I pray that I may be able to accept that nothing happens that is not in Your permissive will. I ask that You would give me the strength, day by day, to cope with this unexpected set of circumstances.
Protect my baby from any other form of infection or illness, and may this little body be strengthened through Your mighty power with each passing day. Give the doctors and nurses the skill to do all that is needed to care for my baby, and give me the sufficient strength that only comes from You. May Your peace reside in my heart, knowing that all things work together for good to those that are called according to Your good purpose. Thank You, Father, in Jesus' name,

“For You are my hope, Lord God , my confidence from my youth.”

A Mother’s Thankful Heart For Her Baby

Heavenly Father, what joy fills my heart for the precious little baby you have seen fit to bring into our family unit. I lift up my voice of praise to You, with a grateful heart for this little life that has been entrusted to me.

Teach me to be a good and faithful mother and to take the responsibilities of motherhood seriously. Teach me also how to bring up my child to know You Lord Jesus, so that my precious little baby will grow up to accept You as their Saviour. And Lord, You Who loved to welcome the little children into your arms, open Your arms of love I pray for us, and keep us all safe from harms way, under the protection of Your wings of love.

As this little bundle of joy starts to grow and develop, give me wisdom to teach and train, to correct and to encourage. May I be both fair and wise, and combine a balance between correction and encouragement. Guide our little family unit in the ways of peace I pray, and thank You my heavenly Father for the wonderful blessing that has come from You. In Jesus' name, 


“When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering because of the joy that a person has been born into the world.”

Lord, into Your hands we place these parents and babies. In Jesus' name,

Prayer For Babies In The Womb

Heavenly Father, I bring before You all women that are pregnant, and all couples that are expecting a little baby to be born into their home. I ask Your protection for all babies that are secretly being formed in the womb of their mother.
I ask for their protection, preservation and healthy growth while still developing in the womb, and I pray that expectant mothers will be given the wisdom and grace to avoid the things that can prove so detrimental to the development of the pre-born child.
I pray that You would surround all pre-born babies with a hedge of protection, and that each little life may develop into the perfectly healthy new-born baby, knowing that there are so many problems that can affect a child in the womb and injure their physical and cognitive development.
Lord it was You that said, "suffer the little children to come unto Me and forbid them not," and so I pray that each one would be born into a family that loves and cherishes them and that each one would learn of Jesus in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name,

“Just as you don't know the path of the wind, or how bones [develop] in the womb of a pregnant woman, so you don't know the work of God who makes everything.”

Prayer For Babies Safety

And so we ask for Your loving protection to surround all babies and young children, and that You keep each one free from harm.
And so we entrust all vulnerable young children and tiny babies into Your loving hands for safe keeping, and pray that nothing evil will befall any one of them, and that they will be lovingly protected from any physical harm or emotional trauma.
Thank You, Lord, for hearing and answering prayer. May this generation of babies and toddlers grow up desiring to know more of You in the days that lie ahead. This we ask in Jesus' name,

“You hide them in the protection of Your presence; You conceal them in a shelter from the schemes of men, from quarrelsome tongues.”

Thank You my Father, for this precious babe that You have graciously entrusted to me to love and cherish, to teach and to train. Lord, it is my desire to dedicate this treasured child back to You, just as Hannah brought her Samuel, to give him back into Your safe-keeping. Keep me from possessiveness and prevent me from clinging too tightly to this little life, but may I give him the freedom to grow without neglecting the responsibilities of parenthood.

Give me godly wisdom as I bring up this little one, and I pray that he will grow up into a great man of God and that one day You would use him in a special way to bring glory to Your name.
