Prayer For Early Pregnancy

God, thank you for giving my baby a hope and a future. No matter what her life holds both in my womb and in the world, I give you praise for her presence and purpose. Thank you for knowing her intimately, loving her deeply, and entrusting her to my care. Give me strength as I carry her. Equip my body to do this good work of preparing her little life for birth. Thank you for making this baby specifically and carefully and wonderfully. May her life be for your glory and may you be praised through this pregnancy, Jesus! Amen.

God, thank you for giving each one of us life. Thank you for knitting us together in our mother's wombs even before she knew we existed. Thank you for giving us a purpose for every beat of our hearts and every breath we take. It is in you that we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28) and we praise you for your good and beautiful works. We are not here by accident, and we thank you that this new, budding life is not an accident either. You are a gracious and generous giver of good things, Lord! This new life is in your hands, and we pray that we would be a good steward of this precious creation. In your name we pray, amen.

Father God, your word says that you have good plans for us, plans to prosper as a not to fail us. I stand firm on these words, and I declare and decree that's my baby, who has been born prematurely, will grow according to the plans that you have for him. I refute every tongue that rises against him in the form of bad medical reports and discouragement from friends and relatives. Lord, my child, will live and declare your glorious work. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Dear God, I am filled with fear and anguish. My baby came prematurely, and the doctors are saying that it will not survive. But that is not what you promised us in your word. You knew this child before it was formed in my womb. All the days ordained for my baby are written in your book. Father, it is not over for my baby until you say so. I put my trust in you alone. Lord, cover my baby with your protective arms. Shield this child from sickness and any other kinds of attacks. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Lord Jesus, I lovingly pray for this sweet hope
that I keep within my womb.
You have granted me the immense gift
of a tiny little life,
living in my own life,
and I humbly thank you for choosing me
as an instrument of your love.
In this sweet waiting,
help me to live in a constant attitude
of self-surrender to your will.

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 every peril to its soul.

Mary, you have known
the ineffable joy of a holy motherhood;
give me a heart that can transmit an ardent, living
Sanctify my waiting,
bless this joyful hope that is in me,
grant that the fruit of my womb
may open out in virtue
and in holiness through your working
with that of your divine Son.


Almighty God, thank you for giving the doctors wisdom to save my baby's life. I praise you for protecting her from premature death. As she fights for her life in the incubator, fill her with strength in her inner being that she may mature fully. Lord fill nurses and doctors that are taking care of her with the strength to take good care of our baby and all other preemies. I pray for mothers that are going through the same ordeal all over the world. Father, give them divine strength. Help them to accept what has happened and to continue fighting for the fruits of their wombs through prayer. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Gracious Father, thank you for our baby that has finally arrived in the world. Lord, we know this was not the best way for our child to come, but everything works together for our good. I choose to thank you, even though I am fearful. Spring of living water, let my baby find fullness in you. Let the resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead rest upon this infant that it may become stronger and healthier. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Lord, I thank you for these fantastic caregivers that are working round-the-clock to ensure our baby is safe and healthy. Thank you for the technology that you have granted us to help secure the lives of babies that are born prematurely. I also want to thank you for giving us the strength to fight in faith and not out of fear. Lord, even with the caregivers doing exceptional work, we know it is your mighty hand that will help our baby to mature and be healthy. Uphold our baby with your righteous right hand and fight on our behalf. Let what the enemy intended for bad be our testimony and let your name be glorified through this child. In Jesus' name, we believe and pray, Amen.
