7 Blessings and Prayers for New Parents

Proverbs 22:6, Galatians 5:22
Father, we thank You for the birth of (child’s name) and ask for divine blessings upon (parent’s names) who are now new parents. Lord, we ask that You bless them with Your love, peace, joy, strength, patience, wisdom as they enter into this new life. I pray that as new parents, they will follow the model of parenting designed by You; “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Amen.

Jeremiah 1:5
Oh Lord, thank You for this new born child. We thank You that You have entrusted this life to (parent’s names). Help them to celebrate their child’s uniqueness and abilities. Father, Your Word says that “before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations”. So, Father help these new parents to guide their child in the right direction, so that every plan and purpose You have for their life will be manifested in Jesus Name, Amen.

John 5:42
Dear Father, I pray that as new parents, You will teach patience and endurance. Lord I ask that they shall not become angry when things appear to not be right. Help them not to lose patience, but rather to show their new born child Your agape Love. Lord we pray that they (parents) will honour this great responsibility of parenting. Bless them with wisdom to parent well in Jesus Name, Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:6, Matthew 6:10
Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Lord, I know that children are a blessing from You and for this we thank You that (parents names) have been given this great opportunity to become new parents. Father, I ask that they seek Your face and obey Your Word while under pressure. Grant them courage each and every day and I pray that they will point their child to Your commands, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Proverbs 13:24, Exodus 31:18
Heavenly Father, we pray by the blood of Jesus Christ that You will help (parent’s names) to parent their new born child by your divine Holy Spirit. Father, just as You gave Moses the Mosaic law to be written on tablets, grant these new parents personalised instructions for the caring of their child. Father, I pray also that they will never refuse to bring correction, because a refusal to correct is a refusal to love. This we pray, Amen.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the joy of life a new born baby brings. So right now, we pray for divine strength over new parents. Father, they are not use to sleepless nights and deprived sleep, but in their weakness, I ask that you will be their strength and portion. I declare that Your grace will be sufficient for (parent’s names), for Your strength is made perfect in weakness; when they are weak, then they are strong, in Your Name Amen.

Isaiah 40:11
Holy Father, just as a shepherd looks after their sheep, as new parents, I pray that You will grant them with the same tenderness of a God who promises to watch over his flock. Lord, in the same way, help new parents to lead their new born babies gently in line with Your will and purpose. We pray that You will help the parents of (child’s name) to not lead their child astray, this we ask in Your Name, Amen.
