Prayer For New Mom And Dad
We thank You for our mothers to whom You have entrusted the care of every precious human life from its very beginning in the womb.
You have given to woman the capacity of participating with You in the creation of new life. Grant that every woman may come to understand the full meaning of that blessing, which gives her an unlimited capacity for selfless love for every child she may be privileged to bear, and for all Your children.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand when I awake, I am still with you.
Every strongman of bad luck, late marriage, sorrow, hardship, frustration, disappointment, lack attached to your life is dead today, in Jesus name.
Lord, please help [mother's name], as she is facing some difficult challenges. Please bring her and her family guidance and bring her Your supernatural peace. As she mourns [and/or struggles], please encourage her and show her that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Please guide her family and loved ones as well. In Jesus name, amen.
Lord, I just want to lift up [name of mother] to you. Please give her Your wisdom and guide her along her path as a [wife, mother, sister and friend]. I ask that You'd help her by providing strength, encouraging her and guiding her as she finds balance in her life. God, I truly value her and I pray that You'd help her be the mother and woman You'd like her to be. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.
