Prayer for babies in nicu

Dear God, Remember your little ones that you have known before they were even in their mama’s womb.

They have come early to this place and we welcome them with open arms. But God because they are here so early they suffer physical problems that only you can help them with.

Place your hand over each one and help these little angels be as healthy as can be so that they may lead wonderful normal lives and bring bsck the smile to their parents faces. These little premees are the closest creatures to heaven the earth has.
God Bless them and help their afflictions to be minimal. May theywitness your blessings through Christ our lord by which everything is possible.
Thank You for your blessings God.

Return to Prayers for Children

Before I ever was the mother of a micropreemie, I was a born again follower of Christ Jesus. The only thing that kept me going through the difficulties of our two month NICU stay was knowing that a loving and sovereign God had planned this ordeal for His glory and our good. There was a purpose in our pain, and a loving Guide to lead us through it.

The Lord used time spent with Him in His Word and prayer to truly encourage me and steady my heart during our daughter’s roller coaster ride beginning. While I love just speaking my heart before the Lord, I’ve also found praying specific Scripture passages to be a great blessing.

Think about it.

The Bible is God’s Word. When you pray His Word, you can know that you are praying words that are honoring to Him- after all, He wrote them!

The Bible reveals God’s character. As I read, study, and pray the Bible, I am growing in my understanding of who God is. Because He is good, this is encouraging!

The Bible is chock full of God’s promises. He always keeps His Word. As I read, memorize, and pray over these promises, I experience assurance that He will deliver on them.

If you are interested in trying this exercise for yourself, here are a few Scripture passages that I found particularly helpful during our daughter’s hospitalization:

Psalm 139:13-18. Praise God for the way He has intricately woven your baby together, first in your womb, and now outside of it. Thank Him for the opportunity to watch His hand at work. Thank Him for forming all of your child’s days in His book, long before they took their first breath! Be comforted that He has a plan for them and is in control.

Psalm 71:6. Acknowledge that God brought your baby out of your womb. Thank Him that His timing is perfect, even in preterm delivery. Ask for grace to praise Him continually, even though life is painful right now.

Psalm 71:20. Even though this situation is all consuming and awful, thank God that is is only for a season. Ask Him to revive you again and bring you through!

Psalm 90:16. Ask Him to help you see Him at work. Plead that His glorious power would be displayed in your baby’s miraculous life.

Psalm 119:50. Thank Him that He has provided comfort in your affliction. Thank Him for the promise of life to all who believe.

Romans 8:18-30. Praise God that the sufferings of this life don’t even compare to the glory of eternity in heaven with Christ! Thank Him for the hope you have in Christ. Praise God that the Spirit intercedes and prays for us when we don’t know how to pray. Thank Him that all things work together for good, for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8: 31-39. Thank God that He didn’t spare His own Son but gave Him up for us. Thank Him that He graciously gives us all things. Remind yourself that you are more than a conqueror through Him who loved you. Thank God that nothing can separate us from His love in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Philippians 4:4-8. Ask God for help to rejoice in Him always. Ask Him to protect your from anxiety and to guard your heart with His peace. One by one name the things that are making you anxious (an infection, pending surgery, oxygen and apnea issues, whatever!) and make your specific requests for His help. Thank Him for hearing. Ask Him to guard your mind and to help you think only what is true and beneficial.

James 1:2-8. Ask God to help you count this trial as joy. Thank Him that the testing of your faith produces patience and maturity as a Christian. Ask Him to give you wisdom as you seek to care for your baby and make important medical decisions. Thank Him for giving generously and without reproach. Ask Him for faith to believe and not doubt.

These are just a few to get you started. As you read portions of Scripture each day, pray through the passages you’re reading. There is great comfort in knowing the God of the Bible. May He guard your heart, guide you through, and grant you peace!

Born on March 22, 2016 at 24 weeks 5 days gestationBirth weight: 1 lb 2.7 oz
Our preemie is my niece, Paisleigh. She was born while my brother and sister in law were on vacation at Disney at 23 weeks and 5 days. We’re from Texas! I’m a NICU RN so it’s been very interesting to be on the other side!  She’s doing amazingly well because she has been lifted up in prayer immediately!  God is so good!  Please add her to your prayer page. She was 1 lb 7 oz @ birth. My grandson Grayson born March 17th 1lb 20oz please lift him up in prayerPlease our sweet baby boy and our family in your prayers. Bryant was born January 23rd at 34 weeks and weighed 3lbs 8 ounces. When he was a week old his oxygen levels started dropping and he was flown via jet to UAB where he had a blood transfusion and blood exchange because his red blood cells where breaking and he had to be put on oxygen and his jaundice level wouldn’t come down. After 2 weeks in Birmingham NICU he was able to come home with us. He now weighs 5lbs 2.5ounces and is up to 3 ounces per feedings. He also has a little bit of a cold right now and is congested so please pray he will get over that soon! Considering all Bryant and mommy went through during pregnancy, labor & delivery, we are truly blessed, he is a true miracle. It took us 3 years and an IUI to get pregnant with him. He is our whole world.

I welcomed Cooper and Kennedy into the world at 32 weeks and 5 days on the 6th of February. Cooper weighed 4lbs 3oz and Kennedy weighed 3lb 1oz. They have been in the NICU for almost three weeks now. Cooper has had a rough start, he was on a CPAP breathing machine, graduated to a tube and is now breathing on his own with destats every so often. Kennedy has been a trooper from the start, small and fiesty as ever. She didn’t need any oxygen and she’s currently taking bottles on her own. She may get to go home this weekend. Cooper has some catching up to do with his bottles, but he seems to be on the right track. I hate the feeling of leaving big brother behind. I feel so guilty being at home and not spending my every min of everyday with my little ones. Please say a prayer that my little ones can come home soon and that once home they both continue to grow and strive.

For the past six weeks we (mommy, daddy, friends, & family) have been riding on the roller coaster of NICU life. Today has been a down day, and I feel like we all could definitely use some extra prayers to be sent up. Thank you sincerely,Jessica and RobertPlease pray for little Enzo Archie born 2.13.15 at 27 weeks gestation. He is 2.1lbs and getting stronger. We just want him healthy strong and to come home.

Dear God, 

You chose to give this family a beautiful baby born far too soon. 

They are now in the care of dedicated nurses and doctors, but their true 

healing can come only through you. 

Please wrap your protective arms around all of the babies born prematurely or critically ill and bestow your healing blessings on them that they may grow and develop into full term babies and glorify you in this world. 

Please hear our daily prayers and give the families the strength to bear this challenge.
