Prayer For Birth
O Lord, Mighty in Power, thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus who gives us everything we need. Bless me with the strength I need right now and ensure a safe and smooth labor process. May I feel secure in your love and safe in your care. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, you love children and families. Thank you for the gift of new life. Please give me the strength and endurance I need to keep going during labor. May my child find true freedom in you. Bless our family, Lord. Turn your face towards me and give me peace. In your mighty name, Amen.
O Lord, my God, thank you that you have plans for me that are for my good and your glory. Fill me with your Spirit and help me endure the difficulties of childbirth with my hope set on the joy of the child you have given me. Nothing can separate us from your love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Mighty God, as I persevere through the pain of childbirth, remind me that your love endures throughout all generations. Help me put my trust in you, knowing you are faithful to fulfill all your promises. Strengthen my body when I feel weak and refresh my soul when I feel overwhelmed. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Sovereign Lord, soothe me with your calming grace in this time of labor. I am your child. I belong to you and I am safe in your hands. Fill my heart with the assurance that you are full of steadfast love for me. In your mercy, may I find peace. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Compassionate and Gracious God, I thank you for the wonder of children and the gift of new life. As Mary knew the pain and joy of motherhood, please sustain me through childbirth with your grace and love. May this child know your love, your wisdom and your care. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
I am now in the Sweet Presence of God. I am at one with all creation; I sit in the spirit and the nearness of the God of my Being. In this state of peace I know my true being.
An amazing miracle of creation has occurred in my life: my child was born. This experience has been humbling yet empowering. I am awed with the wonder of this new being that is in the world because of me. I am in a state of grace knowing the incredible co-creative power I have with God, right here, right now.
Bless this child. Bless their health, their heart and their soul. They come into this experience we call life so new, so fresh and so pure. May I be everything to them that they need to have a full and complete journey. May I understand that they have their journey and I have mine as a parent. We are to each other teacher and pupil, pupil and teacher. I will learn as much from them as I teach them.
Lead me in the path of knowledge with my child. Light our way together. Keep us protected and divinely guided in all matters and at all times. May we always feel the presence of God in our lives and may we be blessed.
Help us both to enjoy these early childhood years together. Give me patience and wisdom to do the right things and to do things rightly. May we be happy and full of joy as we spend our days. Bless us richly with health, happiness and laughter.
I am deeply grateful for this child and for all that this child represents in my life. My experience of life and my contribution to the world is changed forever and I am grateful. Thank you, God.
You have chosen this day as the day my baby will be born. Thank you for bringing me to this point in time and for your perfect plan for the hours ahead.
Lord, I praise you for loving me and my baby. Each moment ahead of us is being cradled in Your good hands. May I not forget that.
Help me to not be anxious. Remove from me a heart of fear and replace it with Your peace that passes all understanding! Hold my hand and lead me.
Please allow me to have endurance that comes from you, and keep me safe. Watch over my baby and allow him/her to be born under the best of circumstances.
May Your will be done, Lord. Give me a sense of calm and purpose as I go through labor and delivery.
I know that physical pain can overwhelm me. Help me to cling to You and look forward to the joy ahead when I see my little baby for the first time.
Give skill and wisdom to the doctors, nurses, and staff that will be taking care of me today. Allow them to be kind and helpful and enable me and my family members to bless them too.
Thank you for this new life that you have knit together in my womb so perfectly. Whatever happens, I know that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made. May I feel your presence today in new and excellent ways. I know that You never leave me or forsake me.
I give this baby to You. May my son/daughter grow up to follow You all the days of his/her life and guide me with wisdom as his/her mother from this first moment on.
