The newborn baby phase is magical, but sadly it doesn’t stay forever. Use the time wisely and pray for your little baby with these newborn prayers.
Whether it’s for protection, bad dreams, out of thankfulness, or to calm a fussy child, prayer should be the first thing we turn to. And not only when times are tough, but also praying when times are good for the bad times.
In Proverbs 22:6 it says “start children off from the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.”
So let’s gather together and pray for those little babies with these newborn prayers.
New Baby/Newborn Prayer
Thank you, Lord, for this new life, A precious gift from you.
Draw near and bless this baby, Lord, and bless the parents, too.
Unite them all in love so sweet, and love that is so strong; no matter what the future holds, it will last their whole lives through.
My Baby’s Future
I hold this baby in my arms, and am so thankful for what you’ve given us. This perfect little baby that you formed in my womb now gets to be with us. My mother heart is worried, I fear for her future.
There is so much evil in this world, many bad things I have seen. Send your angel to watch over her, guide her, protect her, and lead her on your paths.
May she/he grow up to become a strong, smart, beautiful, and godly man/woman. May my baby never lose sight of you and always put you first in their life.
A New Perspective
God, I can’t believe this tiny miracle exists. The world seems so different to me right now. Before life was literally different and now this child has opened my eyes to a new reality, one of pure innocence and unconditional love. My deep prayer is that I always see with these eyes. This moment will fade, but I don’t want my new perspective to fade with it. Penetrate my entire being Lord and help me to live like this always, for it will always greatly benefit this baby’s life.
Prayer for Night
Father, I put this little baby into your hands. Send your angels to watch over her/him at night. Send her sweet dreams and a restful sleep.
We put her/him into your loving hands,
A Child of Christ
Lord, may my baby always know the hope of Jesus. May this child always walk in the confidence of your faithful love.
God’s Presence Over Baby
My little baby is so small compared to this big world. You made her perfectly in my womb, and blessed us this far.
As you said in Psalm 145:18, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth”, I am asking you for your presence to be with her/him always. That no matter where she goes, no matter what she does, that nothing breaks the relationship she has with you.
May your presence be with her/him always,
Protection for Newborn Prayer
Bless this little girl. Guide her with your light. Fill her life with joy and love and make her future bright.
Nurture her and comfort her, protect her day and night. Hold her close at heart, and keep her always in your sight.
Newborn Prayer for Baby Who Doesn’t Sleep
My baby wakes often throughout the night, and I struggle during the day because I am exhausted. Please help her little body get the rest it needs. Please turn her mind off and help her become calm.
Lord, I pray that you will give us both rest and relaxation each night while we sleep. I pray my baby develops the sacred pattern of sleep she will need her whole life. I believe you have all of this under control, and I trust your power, and I know you want what’s best for her.
In Jesus’ name,
How wonderful it is to come to our Saviour in prayer. To talk to him, to build that connection.
