For mothers to be, praying for their unborn child is just one way to gain peace. While waiting for the birth of your child, share one of these great prayers for unborn babies to receive God’s blessing.
Praise Your name and thank You Father for the little baby that is about to be born. Lord we pray that you would protect this little infant that is being knit together in his mother’s womb and we pray Lord that You would undertake for a safe delivery at the right time.
Thank You that You know every intimate detail of this little life and we pray that by Your grace You would open the best path for this little one to take. May this baby grow up to know and love the Lord Jesus, which will make him wise unto salvation.. as did the young Timothy who was taught the holy Scriptures at the knee of his mother and grandmother.
We pray Your protection and grace for this little baby who is shortly to take his place in the world and ask that he may grow in wisdom and understanding – finding grace and favor with man and God.
Guard and protect both mother and child as the day for delivery draws ever closer and keep them from all the perils and dangers of this life – looking to Jesus in Whom is life and light and help and wholeness. We ask this in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for the little baby that is growing in secret, inside of me. Lord this is such a wonderful miracle and I give thanks and praise for what You have done in me.
Lord – we truly are fearfully and wonderfully made and to realize that You have scheduled every day of our precious baby’s life already is a wonderful thought. I pray Lord that You would protect this little one as he or she is being prepared to be born into the world. Place Your hand of blessing upon them and I pray that they will grow up to know and love You Lord Jesus.
Prepare me too Lord for parenthood and give me wisdom and grace as I get ready for the day when a new little life will be born into the world. Thank You for giving me the privilege of being the parent of this little baby, in Jesus,
Heavenly Father, I do praise and thank You for my children and for bringing them safely to adulthood, and what a joy it is to know that this thrilling gift of new human life has been given to my own child – as we wait for the birth of their unborn baby – my own little grand-child.
How wonderful to realize that this.. as yet unborn treasure is a gift of God’s grace to our family. How precious to realize that this little baby is created in Your image for which we thank and praise You.
Guard and protect we pray this little life from all dangers and complications as he or she is being formed in the womb and we pray that Your hand of blessing and grace may rest upon the whole family. Lord I just want to say thank You for this little grand-child and for the joy that has already flooded our hearts as we wait in anticipation for the day when this new little person will join our family circle – in Jesus name we pray,
Heavenly Lord – You are the author of life and we pray Your blessing and protection over this little life that is developing in its mother’s womb. We pray that you would grant an uncomplicated pregnancy and a healthy birth and we bless You for the beauty of new life.
Guard and protect the mother and fill her heart with longing and expectation as it draws closer to her time of delivery and instill in her a sense of wonder and awe at the miracle of life that is being formed within her body.
Give grace we pray to the father, who by Your favor has fathered this child. Grant him strength, wisdom and the courage to engage in all godly responsibilities toward his family. May he lead his family into the path of righteousness – becoming a genuine example of man of God.
Draw near to each one and may this little life that is soon to take up his or her position within the home and family be nurtured in the things of God and come to trust the Lord Jesus as Lord and Savior, in Whose name we pray,
In the name of the Lord Jesus I bring my unborn child to You Lord and thank You for this gift of grace that has been granted to me. Lord You have heard my prayers as you did Hannah in the bible and have granted me the privilege of bringing a new little life into the world. I pray that my pregnancy may be free of complications and that my little baby will be born perfectly healthy and complete.
Lord I pray that your hand of grace would be on this child not only in the womb but once he is born. May he come to know and love You Lord and grow into a strong and healthy little child who comes to know the Lord Jesus as his Savior.
Father I thank and praise You for all the great things that you have done for me and for all the things as yet unknown that You have in store for us all. Lord I love you and stand in awe of the wonderful miracle of life that is growing inside of me and lift up my hands to praise Your glorious name,
Almighty God, our Father,
you who have given us life
and intended us to have it forever,
grant us your blessings.
Enlighten our minds to an awareness
and to a renewed conviction
that all human life is sacred
because it is created
in your image and likeness.
Help us to teach by word
and the example of our lives
that life occupies the first place,
that human life is precious
because it is the gift of God
whose love is infinite.
Give us the strength to defend human life
against every influence
or action that threatens or weakens it,
as well as the strength
to make every life more human
in all its aspects.
Give us the grace…
When the sacredness of life
before birth is attacked,
to stand up and proclaim
that no one ever has the authority
to destroy unborn life.
When a child is described as a burden
or is looked upon only as a means
to satisfy an emotional need,
to stand up
and insist that every child is a unique
and unrepeatable gift of God,
a gift of God
with a right to a loving
and united family.
When the institution of marriage
is abandoned to human selfishness
or reduced to a temporary conditional arrangement
that can easily be terminated,
to stand up and affirm
the indissolubility of the marriage bond.
When the value of the family is threatened
because of social and economic pressure,
to stand up and reaffirm
that the family is necessary
not only for the private good of every person,
but also for the common good of every society,
nation and state.
When freedom is used to dominate the weak,
to squander natural resources and energy,
to deny basic necessities to people,
to stand up and affirm
the demands of justice and social love.
give us courage to proclaim the supreme dignity
of all human life and to demand
that society itself give its protection.
We ask this in your name,
through the redemptive act
of your Son and in the Holy Spirit.

Here is a special pregnancy prayer for mothers provided by the Senior Pastor of Thy Divine Hands Ministries. As a gifted prayer warrior, say these words to help motivate, heal, and spread the word of God.
At six months pregnant, Monique Gray suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. The brain damage was too great, and doctors gave up hope for mom. Their attention turned to saving the baby. So, they placed Monique on life support. But one nurse refused to give up, and kept on praying for Monique. And prayer saved a brain-dead mom and unborn baby!
All Monique remembers from the day she went to the hospital is getting home late and hitting the sack. But at some point she called for an ambulance. Paramedics say she was complaining of a headache and throwing up.
By the time they got to the hospital, Monique was unconscious.
CAT scans showed Monique, who was six months pregnant, had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.
“I have to tell you we didn’t think she was going to make it,” retired critical care nurse Barbra Hamm recalls.
Because of the brain damage caused by the hemorrhage, doctors didn’t think there was any hope for Monique. They placed her on life support in an effort to save her unborn baby.

Praying For Divine Healing
Barbra knew Monique’s and the baby’s fate was in God’s hands. So, she started praying. She prayed without ceasing, asking our Heavenly Father to send a miracle.
“The minute I started taking care of her, I knew I had to pray for her, and I prayed every day,” Barbra said. “It was almost like a prayer was going through my mind all the time I took care of her. I felt this compelling need to pray for her all the time.”
Two nuns who work for the hospital also felt compelled to pray for Monique. They came to her bedside and started praying over her. At the end of the prayer, something incredible happened.
The nuns felt a powerful presence enter the room — something they described as “the Ultimate Love.” The nuns knew instantly it was God. Then a voice told one of the nuns,
“Don’t worry, Nickie’s going to be okay.”
As it turns out, Nickie is the nickname Monique’s family gave her.

A Miracle Arrives
Immediately after God assured the nun all was well, Monique sat up, looked at them and asked for some water.
“And that was after three days, brain-dead, no brain wave activity, nothing registered at all,” Monique explained.
Barbra knew this was a miracle from God.
“I was just elated for one thing, and surprised,” she said “because they really gave her very little chance, very little chance of surviving.”
In just a matter of days Monique was well enough to remove life support. Her CAT scans showed completely normal brain function — something the doctors hadn’t believed possible!
“She became stable enough to be transferred out and that was a miracle,” Barbra said.
Three months later, Monique had a beautiful and perfectly healthy baby girl. She named her Cassandra.
“She survived all of this; all of that medication, all of that with absolutely no neurological deficits, no medication in her system, which is another miracle in and of itself,” Monique says of her baby girl.
The Gift Of Life
Today, Cassandra is 21 years old. Monique has enjoyed 21 years with the daughter she was never supposed to meet.
Monique doesn’t know why she received such a huge blessing from God, but tries to honor Him by sharing her story and living the best life she can possibly live.
There’s no doubt it was prayer that saved this brain-dead mom and unborn baby. And the incredible miracle only bolstered Monique’s own faith.
“I know without a shadow of a doubt that God exists,”she says. “The only reason I’m here today at the capacity I’m here, is because of Him, and His grace.”
Their baby girl was supposed to die, so the family prayed for and got a miracle!
Pray for your babies even before they arrive! 14 Scriptures you can pray over your unborn child, for their health, spiritual well-being and more!
Part of preparing ourselves for a new little one is spending time in prayer for our baby’s health and spiritual well-being. A couple of months ago, I was convicted that I wasn’t spending much time in prayer for the baby specifically. We included the baby in prayers for our family but I wanted to be more intentional about speaking Scripture over my unborn child!
I spent some time looking through my Bible and using Bible Gateway to find some beautiful passages that speak precious promises and God’s truth over your baby! You can certainly pray these over all of your children, as we know that the Word of God accomplishes the purpose for which it was sent (Isaiah 55:11-12) and that Scripture prayed over your family has great power.
Further down this post, you’ll find the link to download the printable prayer cards!
I’ve also created a free printable with the fourteen verses I chose in case you would like to print it out and have it nearby when you have prayer time (it’s an 8×10 so you could trim and frame it or put it in a page protector as is). They are mostly NASB and NKJV with a KJV verse thrown in because I liked the way it was phrased better than the other versions.
I’m planning to use these at night before bed and hopefully can include my older children in praying these over the baby during devotions. They are wonderful for memorization as well and can easily be used in a two-week cycle. Below are the verses I chose, feel free to look them up in your favorite version!
