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.

Gratitude Prayer
Jesus, my Savior, you have blessed this family beyond measure by giving us this child that is developing in my womb. Father, I want to say thank you. Thank you for granting me the desire of my heart, just like you did for Hannah. Thank you for removing shame in this family. May your name be glorified forever, for you have replaced our tears and humiliation with joy, thanksgiving, and admiration. Let this child be a reminder of your goodness and mercy to us. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Protection Prayer
All-Powerful Father, I bring my unborn child before your throne of grace today. I come against any manner of sickness and diseases being planned against us. Lord, protect us against any schemes of the devil that may cause me to lose my unborn child through miscarriage. Hide him or her under your wings so that he or she can develop to maturity in my womb. Thank you for answering my prayer. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Serve God Prayer
Sovereign Lord, you are mighty to praise. You created man so that he can worship and serve you.  May this unborn child serve you with his or her whole heart from childhood. May my child do the things that align with your plan for the glory and honor of your holy name. Father, I pray against any evil plan from the camp of the enemy that may cause my unborn child not to serve you diligently when he or she grows up. God, let this child be a blessing to everyone he or she serves. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

A Heart That Trusts You Prayer
God of Enduring Faithfulness, my unborn child is about to be brought into a world where people have their hearts on so many things but you. I am afraid that he or she may go after the pleasures of this world instead of trusting you. Help me to teach this child how to trust and live according to your word. Remove things that may draw his or her heart to other things that don’t bring glory to your holy name. Let this child put his or her hope in you only. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Know the Love of Christ Prayer
Lord of Unfailing Love, you are the true definition of love. You gave yourself up for us while we were yet sinners. Lord, let this child that you are knitting in my womb come to know the love of Christ on a deeper level. Show us ways in which we can demonstrate the love of Christ to him or her. May we be a practical example of what unconditional love is to this unborn child by the way we talk, treat others, and live. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Light of the World Prayer
Light in the Darkness, your word says that we are the light of the world. Let this unborn child be the light of the world as he or she grows up. May the light of Christ illuminate through this baby.  May he or she make a difference in this world for the glory of your name. Let the child be a true representation of Christ. When people see him or her, let them see Jesus Christ and him crucified. We pray this trusting and believing. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

To Be Delivered Safely Prayer
God, my Fortress, I am so grateful for keeping my unborn child, and I safe all through the pregnancy season. Let your hand of grace be upon this child as he or she comes into the world. Lord, send your angels to go before us into the delivery room. May they shield the child and me from any manner of danger. May the doctors and nurses that will be helping me to bring this child into the world be filled with the Holy Ghost. Grant them wisdom so that they can ensure our safety. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Blessing Prayer
God of Blessings, I pray that the fruit of my womb is blessed. May he or she be always at the top and never at the bottom.  Let this child be a source of joy and comfort to other people and us. Lord, may your countenance always shine upon this child. May grace and peace always follow him or her. Let my child find favor with you and man, and may he or she walk with wise people only. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Uncomplicated Pregnancy Prayer
Creator and Sustainer, I thank you for what you are doing in me. Your word says that every perfect gift comes from above. Thank you for creating this beautiful baby that is growing in my womb. Lord, you have already scheduled the days that this child will be in this world while it is still being knit in my womb. That is amazing, dear God. Lord, I pray that this perfect gift may continue developing in my womb without any complications. Be a shield around my unborn child that he or she may develop fully. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Purpose Prayer
O God, my Promise-Keeper, we bring our unborn child into your able hands. You have ordained this child for a particular purpose, even when it is still being knit in my womb. Lord, may your purposes over this child’s life be established. I build a hedge of fire around him or her right now. Please crush all the plans of the enemy over him or her, in the name of Jesus. Father God, connect this unborn child with its destiny. Let this child be a fruitful branch of your holy vine. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Know Identity in Christ Prayer
Lord of the Highest Heavens, the world is filled up with people who are discontented in life because they don’t know who they are in Christ. Almighty Lord, I pray that this child may come to know their true identity in Christ as he or she grows up. May this unborn child find contentment and completion in Christ alone. Let the joy of the Lord be his or her strength all the days of his or her life. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
