5 Good Prayers for Premature Babies

Here are five good prayers asking for strength and healing for premature babies.

Care Prayer
Lord, I thank you for these fantastic caregivers that are working round-the-clock to ensure our baby is safe and healthy. Thank you for the technology that you have granted us to help secure the lives of babies that are born prematurely. I also want to thank you for giving us the strength to fight in faith and not out of fear. Lord, even with the caregivers doing exceptional work, we know it is your mighty hand that will help our baby to mature and be healthy. Uphold our baby with your righteous right hand and fight on our behalf. Let what the enemy intended for bad be our testimony and let your name be glorified through this child. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.

Good Plans Prayer
Father God, your word says that you have good plans for us, plans to prosper as a not to fail us. I stand firm on these words, and I declare and decree that’s my baby, who has been born prematurely, will grow according to the plans that you have for him. I refute every tongue that rises against him in the form of bad medical reports and discouragement from friends and relatives. Lord, my child, will live and declare your glorious work.  In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Protective Arms Prayer
Dear God, I am filled with fear and anguish.  My baby came prematurely, and the doctors are saying that it will not survive. But that is not what you promised us in your word.  You knew this child before it was formed in my womb.  All the days ordained for my baby are written in your book. Father, it is not over for my baby until you say so. I put my trust in you alone. Lord, cover my baby with your protective arms. Shield this child from sickness and any other kinds of attacks. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Strength Prayer
Almighty God, thank you for giving the doctors wisdom to save my baby’s life. I praise you for protecting her from premature death. As she fights for her life in the incubator, fill her with strength in her inner being that she may mature fully. Lord fill nurses and doctors that are taking care of her with the strength to take good care of our baby and all other preemies. I pray for mothers that are going through the same ordeal all over the world. Father, give them divine strength. Help them to accept what has happened and to continue fighting for the fruits of their wombs through prayer. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Health Prayer
Gracious Father, thank you for our baby that has finally arrived in the world.  Lord, we know this was not the best way for our child to come, but everything works together for our good. I choose to thank you, even though I am fearful. Spring of living water,  let my baby find fullness in you. Let the resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead rest upon this infant that it may become stronger and healthier.  In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
