Prayer For A Healthy Baby
Grant me a motherly heart that is pure, steadfast and generous.
I hand over to you my own concerns;
any anxious fears that may come,
my own wishes for the little person
that I still have no knowledge of.
Grant that it may be born healthy in body,
keep far from it perils to the soul.
Dear Lord, I pray for my baby this week. I pray that You will turn my baby's head down in the direction You want him to be. If for some reason the baby shouldn't turn, such as if the cord is wrapped around his neck, then I pray that You take care of this situation, too.
God, You are Almighty and know everything that is going on with my body and my baby. You know the exact minute my baby will be born. Please help me to be patient and get through this time of waiting. I am so anxious to see and hold my baby that I can barely wait another day. Please be close to me and my baby and surround me with Your love and presence at the birth. Help the labor go smoothly and the birth to go just right.
I know that in Nehemiah it says that Your gracious hand is upon me. I know You will bless this delivery, Lord. I know that my labor will be manageable and You will be with me the whole time. Please take away any fear that I may have, and help this baby to come quickly and safely.
You are a great and powerful God. I know that if I praise You, You will rain down Your blessings from above. I believe that You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. This is a new beginning for my baby, for our family. We praise You for this wonderful gift. Thank you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Dear Lord, I pray for my baby's hearing that is developing now. Give him or her perfect hearing with the ears and inner parts of the ear working properly. But, Lord, I also pray that my child will hear and recognize Your voice. Give him spiritual ears to hear what You say to his generation, and to him specifically. I pray that my child will love Your voice and be sensitive to it. Lord, You say in the book of John that Your people hear You and follow You, and that You give them eternal life. I pray now for my child's salvation, that You would give him a wonderful experience in knowing You are his personal Lord and Savior and that You have prepared eternal life for him. Lord, I also pray that my words express love and are positive, encouraging, life-giving and Bible-based. I pray that my baby hears only good things coming out of my mouth, and I pray that I will think about what I am going to say before I say it. Help me teach by words and action to speak praise. Show him the path in which You want him to go and help him to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ wherever he goes. Thank you, Jesus, for hearing my prayer. I ask this in Your name. Amen.
Father God, I thank You for giving us spiritual insight through Your Word. I pray that my baby will grow to have sharp spiritual vision. May he experience Your calling on his life at an early age. Open the eyes of his heart and enlighten his mind with Your Word. Fill his life with the glorious riches that are the inheritance of Your people. As his mother, I stand for him in prayer and claim the promises in the Bible for him. And, Lord, I pray for my baby's eyes that they will open and see this week or sometime very soon, according to what is right for his development. Please give my child perfect vision. If there is anything that threatens my baby's sight, I ask You to heal him right now and create a perfect retina, optic nerve, and perfect interpretation of the image displayed in his brain. In Jesus' name. Amen.
