Praying for my Babies
In writing this post, I am currently pregnant with my third child. In each pregnancy, starting with my rainbow baby who is now 3 years old, I prayed for their health, destiny and so much more.
Praying over my womb not only brought me so much peace but I now see my prayers answered in the children that God has given me. I see in their personality and even in their features what I prayed inside the womb.
So today, I want to share with you some prayers that come to mind when I pray over and during my pregnancy journey.

Prayers for Pregnancy
Below are nine prayers for pregnancy that you can use to pray over your baby. You can use these prayers as is or modify them to better fit your needs and situation.
Either way, prayer can be a powerful tool in your spiritual arsenal to pray as a woman of God who is currently growing special life inside of her!
Dear Heavenly Father, please touch my womb right now as you implant this baby deeper to develop and grow. Allow my body to be a healthy place for the baby to continue to grow. I rebuke any thoughts of miscarriage and I surrender any other negative thoughts to you.
I speak life over my womb now and throughout this pregnancy, as you create the foundations of my womb, placenta, and baby to grow within me. Amen.
Prayer against Fear
Lord, your word says that you did not give us the spirit of fear but of power, of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Right now I speak power over my womb and over my thoughts.
I know that you’re love is abundant over my child and I. So Lord, help me to have a sound mind in you. A mind that is steady on your word and embraces scripture in my heart. Help me to be guided by your Holy Spirit and not consumed by any fear in this pregnancy. Amen
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for complete health over this pregnancy. I pray as my pregnancy hormones increase Lord that your mercy increases more.
I pray for no morning sickness throughout this pregnancy and ease in symptoms throughout. Lord, you are faithful to those who seek you and I’m here seeking you for this request. Amen.
Thank you, Lord, for this pregnancy! I pray that you continue to sustain me throughout this time to have a healthy and easy pregnancy. Lord, I pray that when symptoms come they will leave as fast as they came.
Allow your peace to overcome me and your strength to reside inside me. Amen.
Father, the exhaustion is real. But I know that my strength is drawn from you. I know that I can do all things through you who strengthens me (Phil 4:13). So I’m leaning on you during this time as I ask for an increase in energy to do the things you have called me to do.
Allow me to walk in my calling and purpose as I grow this child inside me. Amen.
Baby’s Growth and Development
Dear Heavenly Father, as the baby continues to grow inside my womb I ask that you bless it. Allow every body part and organ to grow as planned. Allow baby to grow to full term and for the labor to be easy. Amen.
Lord, please ease my nerves as we go into our ultrasound. Help my husband to also lean on you during this time. I pray Lord again over the baby’s development and growth as he or she grows. I pray that your presence is in the room as we get to see our baby for the first time. Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, before you formed us in the womb you knew us (Jeremiah 1:5). You knew me before I was born and you also know this baby and the plans you have already set for their lives. I pray that this baby grows to know you day by day and walks in the purpose that you have planned for him or her. Amen.
Lord, help me to be the mother and my husband to be the father that you have called us to be. Help us to grow deeper in you even as we journey through parenting our child. Teach us lessons according to your word to help us along the way and place a burning desire in both of us to continue to have you at the forefront of our marriage. In Jesus’ name, amen.
