15 Powerful Prayers for My Sick Baby

Seeing your baby with any type of sickness is heartbreaking and terrifying, but God holds all of His children in His hands. Here are 15 powerful prayers for your sick baby.

Prayer for My Sick Baby
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, I implore You on behalf of this precious child. Please show Your mercy on my baby who is sick. You knit her together and You understand what is wrong with her body – Lord, heal her. I know that You are the Lord God who cares, and I ask that You give wisdom to the medical professionals that are caring for my child. May they find out what they need to do to enable her full recovery. And yes, I do pray for recovery, Lord. To You who cares even for the sparrows, I cry out for Your mercy now. Amen.

Prayer for Miraculous Healing
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, it is You to whom I turn for miracles. When You walked this earth, wherever You went, people begged You that they might touch even the fringe of Your cloak, and all who touched it were healed. I have faith that You can heal my baby, Jesus. My child doesn’t even need to touch the fringe of Your cloak. You healed the centurion’s servant who was in a different place just by wishing it to be so. I believe in Your supreme authority over everything on this earth and in the heavens. I believe in Your healing power, Jesus. Please restore my child to health. In Your merciful and compassionate name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer When Something Seems Wrong
Almighty Savior, I come to You praying for Your healing power to blanket my baby. I know something is wrong. I have a million worries swimming through my head right now and I need You to calm me so I can think clearly and monitor my baby properly. Guide me so that I do the right things to help my child recover from whatever is happening. Please bring a restful, restorative sleep upon my precious baby to rejuvenate and restore. Come, Holy Spirit, and fill my child with Your Spirit of healing. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Prayer for My Baby’s Suffering
Oh, Jesus, my Great Healer, You say that it is not the will of our Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish. My spirit is troubled as I watch my precious baby suffer. Come, Holy Spirit, and work through me to do the impossible. I surrender to You and desperately pray that You lift up my child and heal him. I am totally dependent on You, Jesus. I trust You and know You hear me. In Your gracious name, I plead. Amen.

Prayer for Strength
Almighty and Everlasting God, I beg You now on behalf of my baby. Please equip her with strength for this battle she is fighting. Pour Your Spirit of power over her. Run Your energy through her body, God. She is so little, and You are so big, God. If You heal her, she will be truly healed. If You save her, God, she will be truly saved. My praises are for You alone! I praise You with all that I am and all that I will ever be! In the precious name of Jesus who promises His kingdom of heaven to little children. Amen.

Prayer Against Pain
God, Maker of Heaven and Earth, I come to You on my knees, asking You on behalf of my child, this infant, that You relieve him from his pain and his distress. You say that You will wipe every tear from our eyes and that there will be no more crying or pain. I wait for those ending days to come, dear God, and beg that in the meantime, right now, You crush the tormenting agony in my baby’s body. Please have mercy on my baby, God. In Your magnificent grace, heal him and ease his suffering. You are holy and good in everything You do. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Emergency Prayer
Father, my Miracle-Worker, I cry out to You! Help me, Father! Heal my baby! I do not know yet what is wrong, but You do, Father. You healed the sick. You raised the dead. You made the blind to see, the deaf to hear, and the lame to walk. Come and fill my baby with Your supernatural grace so that my child is able to quickly leave the NICU and go home. My heart is open to You, my Father, and my faith in You is strong. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer to Fight Panic
Faithful Father, You say that when we pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over us, and when we walk through the fire, we will not be burned. Father, I need Your calm Spirit to fill me up, to overflow, and to spill out of me. I am in the middle of a river. I have been cast into a blazing fire and I am panicking. My mind is scattered, my heart is racing, and my emotions are unstable. Even though it is hard to turn to You right now, give us faith to deliver our baby’s health to You. You are in control of this, Father. We will rest in Your sovereign hand. I pray all these things by Your Spirit of peace. Amen.

Prayer to Trust God
Father God, Name above all Names, You say that we should worship the Lord our God and You will take away sickness from among us. You, Father, are the one in charge and we trust You. But as You know, it is so hard to trust in Your goodness right now. We see our precious, precious baby that we love with all our hearts suffering. We see our baby who You have given us fighting to recover from this sickness. Help us to see with Your eyes. Help our unbelief. Let us see that You have a plan to work for good, even in this horrifying situation. Teach us to trust You more. In the name of the one who willingly went to His death for our sake. Amen.

Prayer for My Baby to Sleep Well
Merciful Father, Peace Bringer, You say to come to You and You will give us rest. Give my baby rest, Father. You know she is sick and is not sleeping well. You understand the reasons why. Be close to her and soothe her discomfort. Pour Your comforting peace all over her so every cell in her little body relaxes and falls into a deep slumber. Wrap her in angels’ wings and rock her to sleep. Encircle her in Your grace. In the name of Jesus Christ who saves. Amen.

Prayer Against Long-Lasting Effects
Jesus, the Great Physician, You went through the towns and villages, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. You are powerful and mighty, capable of working everything according to Your will. I pray for Your mercy on this baby that he recovers and goes on to live a healthy, normal life. I beg You to aid in his recovery and remove any consequences from this sickness. In all things, help me to have confidence that You will work all situations for good. In Your compassionate name, I beg for Your healing grace to cover my child. Amen.

Prayer for the Doctor
Father of Loving Devotion, You work through everything in this world. I thank You that You have provided doctors to care for my sick baby. Father, I pray for the doctor charged with her recovery. Fill the doctor with Your wisdom as he/she watches over my baby’s care and administers treatment. Inspire the doctor with Your insight and understanding so that he/she knows how best to restore the health of my precious baby. Focus the doctor on the issues with my baby so that he/she dedicates the time needed to give proper medical advice to us. I ask this in Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for the Nurses
God of Mercy and Love, You are the God who cares. I thank You for the amazing nurturing nurses You have given us at this hospital. Lord God, I see the long hours the nurses work and I see the devotion and concern they have for their patients. As they tend to my sick baby, may You bless them in the way they do their jobs. Give them supernatural wisdom in knowing what to do and when to do it. Keep them alert during their shifts so they do not make mistakes. Let me show them my gratitude for their tireless dedication. In the name of the one who cares for us always. Amen.

Prayer for Mutual Support
Lord of the Highest Heavens, You give abundant grace to those who call on You. You know our situation and You feel our pain. Even in these times when our tempers are short and we are on edge, help us to be united as parents for the good of our sick baby. Lord, may we show grace and love to each other and support one another. Our hearts are heavy with sadness and fear, but this is the time more than ever when we need to work together in harmony. Help us, Lord God. Hear us, Lord God. I ask these things in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer for My Baby in My Womb
Way Maker, Promise Keeper, I cry out to You in my trouble! I cry out to You in my baby’s distress! I praise Your gracious name for knitting this baby of mine together in my womb and I pray for Your healing hand to restore his health. Have compassion on him, Father, for this innocent unborn child is weak and his bones are in agony. But even if You do not heal him, Father, I accept Your will to be done. I yield to Your will for his life. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
