Prayers for a Safe Delivery and Healthy Baby

9 Prayers for a Safe Delivery and Healthy Baby

Pregnancy and giving birth can be one of the most amazing experiences in a woman’s life. However, it can also be extremely stressful. Though the medical world has made huge strides, miscarriage, stillborn birth, and other complications still occur. As a result, fear and anxiety can increase as the delivery gets closer. Using the power of scriptural prayer for safe delivery can help calm those anxious feelings.

Scriptural prayer is simply using the words of Scripture in your prayers. Why pray Scripture? When we pray Scripture, we can be sure we are praying in God’s will, and the power of unleashing the sword of the Lord is huge! Below you will find examples of scriptural prayer for safe delivery and a healthy baby that if claimed will help calm your fears. I suggest making them your own and incorporating them into your daily prayer life.

3 Prayers for a Safe Pregnancy

Lord Jesus, You have said, “Do not worry about tomorrow”, but I confess, I’m worried. Pregnancy is such a miraculous yet, scary journey. I feel like so much could go wrong. Oh Lord, when my mind goes to “what if’s” and “what then’s” teach me to shift my focus to Your holy character and loving nature. You have promised to give me immeasurable peace as I focus on what’s true, noble, right, pure lovely, and admirable about You. I pray for a safe pregnancy and a peaceful mind during my pregnancy. Reassure my anxious heart I pray. Help me to take every thought captive as I trust in You (Matthew 6:34, Philippians 4:8, 2 Corinthians 10:5).

God, I praise You that I am dwelling in the shelter of your care. You are the God most high who is sovereign and loving. I praise You that You will be my rock and my fortress as I go through this pregnancy. I trust You because You are good. Thank You, that You love this child even more than I do. Thank You that no harm will overtake me. I am rooted and grounded in You (Psalm 91:1-2,10).

Lord God, I praise You that children are a treasure from you. I am extremely blessed to carry this child. You have turned my mourning into dancing and given me the desire of my heart. Surround my womb with your protection I pray. Hide this little one in the shelter of Your presence as he /she grows and develops. I pray that no weapon formed against him will prosper but that He will grow and be used mightily by you (Psalm 127:3, Psalm 30:11, Isaiah 54:17).

6 Prayers for a Safe Delivery and Healthy Baby

Holy One, when the pain of labor becomes unbearable, help me to be strong and courageous knowing that You will not leave me nor forsake me. Help me not to get discouraged as I push. I praise You for Your promise that I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. I pray for Your protection over the entire delivery process (Joshua 1:9, Hebrews 13:5, Psalm 27:13).

I praise You, Almighty One, that even as I head into the delivery room, Your promise stands, “The Lord Your God is with you, the mighty warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you.” Thank You that You will quiet my fear with Your love and You will rejoice over me with singing even as I labor intensely. As I fix my thoughts on You, dear Lord, You will keep both me and my spouse in perfect peace through the delivery process. I pray that no harm will come to my precious little one, through the delivery process (Zephaniah 3:17, Isaiah 26:3).

Father God, I lift my prayer for a safe delivery before You. I praise You that You go before me, behind me, above me, and beneath me into the delivery room. Thank You, that You love me and this child beyond what I can imagine. I pray that You will shield my baby during the delivery process with your faithfulness. I pray for protection around her heart, lungs, and every other tiny body part. Thank You, that she is fearfully and wonderfully made and that all the days of her life have been ordained by You. I pray Holy Spirit, breath of God, that You will continue to breathe life into her tiny lungs even through the birthing process (Ephesians 6:15, Psalm 139:13, John 14:26).

Holy Spirit, I pray that You will fill my mind with scripture verses to pray over this child and to take with me in my mind to the delivery room. I pray that as I birth this child I will be faithful in prayer. Thank You, dear Lord, for giving me the resource of praying Scripture as a weapon to defeat the enemy. I pray You will fill my doctors with wisdom as we move closer to the birth. Thank You, that as medical decisions are being made for me or the baby, You will give wisdom. I praise You that I can trust You! (Ephesians 6:17, Isaiah 30:21, James 1:5).

Lord God, I know that You have not given me the spirit of fear. You want me to have a sound mind as I move towards my delivery date. I pray for joy after I give birth and against any postpartum depression. Thank You, that even if my hormones are all over the place, I can count on You to hold me steady. I praise You that if I need medical help after giving birth to deal with depression, there are doctors who can help me. Help me to be honest about how I feel after delivering so that I can receive the help I might need. I praise You that in the moments after I give birth You will fill me with joy and delight as I bond with my new little one (2 Timothy 1:7).

Holy One, I praise You that You have heard my prayer for safe delivery and that You promise to answer me in my hour of need. You are good and everything You do is good, thank You that I can trust You. I lay all my anxiety down before You knowing that You care for both me and my baby. I trust You for joy and peace (Psalm 10:17, Psalm 119:68, I Peter 5:7).

Build a Play List of Comforting Scriptures and Worship Songs

Beyond praying Scripture, it is helpful to create a playlist of comforting scriptures and worship songs for the delivery room. In the months leading up to delivery, create a playlist of comforting scriptures and worship songs. As you are in labor the words of Scripture and worship music will comfort your heart and keep you calm. Having a playlist of 20+ songs and scriptures will bring courage as you labor.

This article is a bit more personal for me as there was a season in our family’s life where each of my daughters and my daughter-in-law lost babies. Over the span of five months in the year, 2014, we lost five babies through miscarriage. It was a dark season for our family. However, each of the girls claimed specific scriptures and listened to certain worship songs. They each unleashed the power of prayer and praise. In both the scriptures and the worship songs they found comfort and hope. 2015 will always remain “the year of the new song” for our family, because each of the girls got pregnant within days and weeks of each other. Each one delivered a healthy baby. We now affectionately call those four six-year-olds, “the Quads”. I can’t guarantee that God will work the same way in your life. What I can guarantee is that unleashing the power of Scripture and praise will calm your fears and lessen your anxiety as you pray for a safe delivery and healthy baby.

God is the author and sustainer of life. He Himself goes before, behind, above, and beneath those who put their trust in Him. When fear or anxiety cripple your thinking, learn to unleash the power of scriptural prayer for safe delivery and for a healthy baby. He promises that those who fix their minds on Him and His Word, will experience perfect peace. Prayer is far more powerful than we believe and God honors those who pray His Word.

Powerful Prayers for Pregnant Mothers

Expecting a child can be one of the most joyous moments in your life. These powerful prayers for pregnant mothers encourage good health, ongoing comfort, and excitement for what is to come.

Safe Delivery Prayer
Father God, you’re the one who gives life. I want to thank you for the precious gift that you have created in my womb. Lord, as I approach the final days of this journey, I ask you to grant me a safe delivery. Remove fear from my heart and fill me with your unconditional love. As the labor pains begin, send your angels to strengthen me so that I can remain strong throughout the delivery process. I thank you for giving me and my child a perfect life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pregnancy Complication Prayer
O Holy Father, you are the God that can turn an impossible situation into a possible one. Father, I come to you today asking you for a complication-free pregnancy. Protect the baby and me. Let these nine months be free from any manner of complications that arise during pregnancy. No manner of sickness or disease will prosper in my body and affect this child. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Unborn Child Protection Prayer
Dear God, the enemy is against children that are being born in families that worship you. He is destroying children when they are still innocent. That is why I come to you today asking you to protect my child when it is still in the womb up to when he or she will be born and become an adult.  No weapon forged against this unborn child shall prosper, and I refute any tongue that will rise against my child as he or she grows into an adult. I cover him or her with the blood of the lamb. In Jesus’ name, I do believe and pray, Amen.

High-Risk Pregnancy Prayer
O Lord, my God, the doctors, have termed this pregnancy a high-risk pregnancy. But Father, you promised us this child. It doesn’t matter what the medical report says, what matters is what you have promised. Your word says that the fruit of my womb is blessed, and I stand firm in those words. I cancel and nullify all negative words that have been spoken over this pregnancy, in the name of Jesus. We shall not die but live to declare the glorious works of God. We are covered with the blood of Jesus, Amen.

Blessing Prayer
Heavenly Father, your word says that children are a gift from the Lord. I come to you today to thank you for giving us this beautiful gift. It is not because we are good people, but it is because you are a good father. Father, I speak a blessing over my child and I. May you surround us with favor and love as with a shield. Let every stage of pregnancy come with its share of blessing. May we be a blessing to this home, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Baby’s Purpose Prayer
Lord God Almighty, we are all here for a purpose. This unborn child is coming into this world in a few months for a purpose. He or she is not an accident. Lord, establish the purposes you have for our child. Let anything that does not align with the plans you have for this child be thwarted, in Jesus’ name. Help us to teach our child the things that align with your word. Show us how to raise this child for the glory and honor of your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Peace during Pregnancy Prayer
Loving Father, you tell us in your word that we should not be anxious for anything. But the truth is I am full of anxiety right now. I fear for the health of the baby and me. Lord, I cannot continue to walk like this and risk this pregnancy, so today, Father, I come boldly before your throne of grace, asking you to fill me with the peace that surpasses all understanding. I surrender everything that is troubling my heart to you, and I chose to walk in the same peace Jesus has because I know that you are watching over the two of us. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Inadequacy Prayer
O dear God, as a first-time mother-to-be, I am scared of what awaits me. I feel inadequate. My mind is full of thoughts of failure; I fear that I will not be a good mother to my child. Lord, right now, I don’t know how to balance life as a pregnant woman, wife, career woman, and friend. Teach me how to go about this. I don’t want to let others down, but I find it so hard and overwhelming. Give me divine strength that I may be able to handle things the way you want me to. Help me to take good care of this unborn child and myself. In Jesus’ name, I believe, and pray, Amen.

Wisdom as a Parent Prayer
O God, I need wisdom on how to take care of this child. My husband and I cannot do this alone. We need guidance from you because this child is a gift from you. Let your word become a lamp unto my feet as I step into this motherhood journey. Father, let my doubts and fears be washed away with your word. Bring the right people my way that will help me to know how to take care of this child and remove the people that will give me advice that doesn’t align with your word. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Love Prayer
O Holy God, you have created this child in my womb out of pure love. Help him or her to love you too. Teach me how to love this child right so that out of that love, he or she may understand the love you have for us as your children. Give me the strength to show this unborn child unconditional love, forgive my shortcomings, and lead me in the path that I should take as a mother. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Thanksgiving Prayer
Heavenly Father, I want to bless and magnify your name today. We have prayed for this bundle of joy, and now he or she is here being knit together in my womb. I want to thank you for granting my husband and I the desire of our hearts. O Lord, thank you for entrusting us with such a huge responsibility. Teach us how to be good parents and help us to have a happy pregnancy season. We pray this believing in Jesus, Amen.

Prayer to Be Healthy
Lord, my Sustainer, I ask that you keep me healthy through the coming months of this pregnancy. Remind me to eat healthy foods, drink enough fluids, take my vitamins, and get adequate exercise and sleep. Protect me from negative thoughts or anxiety that would interfere with my health. Help me refrain from caffeine, alcohol, and smoking, and not have second-hand smoke around me. I pray for my healthcare providers, that they would quickly recognize if anything needs attention and give me the care I need. Amen.

Prayer Against Genetic Defects
Lord, our Protector and Defender, we ask you to protect our developing baby against any genetic defects. We speak against Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Autism, Sickle Cell Anemia and any other diseases or syndromes that are inherited or occur in the early stage of pregnancy. In the name of Jesus, we curse all evil diseases that would steal, kill, and destroy our precious child. We forbid them from harming our baby and claim the abundant life Jesus came to give. Amen.

Prayer for Good Sleep
Jesus, my Prince of peace, I pray for my wife, that she would enjoy restful, restoring, and comfortable sleep throughout her pregnancy. Help her find a comfortable sleep position that is safe for her and our baby and where she is less likely to experience heartburn. Protect her from insomnia and night waking caused by hormonal changes, discomfort, or from our baby moving. Help her be able to get daytime naps when she needs them. Guard her against back pain, strange dreams, anxiety, or anything else that would prevent her from sleeping well. Amen.

Prayer Against Morning Sickness
O Jehovah, my God, I pray that you will deliver me from morning sickness. Give me freedom from this nausea and vomiting, so I can feel well, and so my baby will be healthy. Guide me in identifying nausea triggers, so I can avoid the foods or smells that are most likely to make me feel sick. Remind me to drink plenty of fluids and eat small, healthy snacks throughout the day. Help me find the food that works best for me. Enable me to get the rest I need. Thank you, God, for being with me through my pregnancy. Amen.

Prayer for Emotional Stability
Lord, our Stronghold, I ask you to bless my wife with emotional security during her pregnancy. As she deals with changing hormones and a changing body, may she remain calm and serene. We are both overjoyed at the thought of this new life, yet sometimes fearful about finances, changes in our life, or about being good parents. Give us peace as we trust in your care and provision. Protect my wife from mood swings, mental fogginess, and forgetfulness. Amen.

Prayer Against Discomfort
Lord, my Strength, please deliver me from this pain and discomfort I’m feeling during this pregnancy. I especially pray against back pain that sometimes shoots down to my hip and leg. It’s making it difficult to stand, sit, or sleep. Ease this pain and remind me to use good posture, have adequate back support when sitting, and to wear the right shoes. I also ask that you relieve pain from headaches and leg cramps, breast tenderness, and discomfort from heartburn and constipation. I thank you, Lord, that you are my healer. Amen.

Prayer for Plans
Jesus, our Good Shepherd, we need your guidance in making plans for now and also for when our baby comes. There is so much to think about and so much to decide. We need your wisdom about whether my wife should return to work after the baby is born. We don’t know if she should try to work from home now while she is pregnant so she can be rested and healthy for the delivery date. Please help us carefully consider our finances and the best decision for whether she should work during and after pregnancy. We also need your direction for housing decisions and purchases as we prepare for our baby’s arrival. Thank you for showing us what is best. Amen.

Prayer Against Fatigue and Feeling Unwell
Lord, our Strong Tower, I ask that you bless my wife with strength, with energy, and with wellness through her pregnancy. In the name of Jesus, I rebuke any fatigue and exhaustion, and I pray that she will get adequate rest during the day and through the night. I rebuke dizziness and unsteadiness that might cause a fall and harm to her and our baby. I pray that her blood sugar and blood pressure would be normal. I pray that she would not get dehydrated or overheated. I thank you for keeping her and our baby safe. Amen.

Prayer for Spiritual Parenting
Precious Holy Spirit, as I look forward to the birth of my baby, I ask you to assist my husband and me in spiritual parenting. We want to raise our child in the nurture of the Lord. Help us establish a family devotional time now, so that it’s a routine part of our life when my baby comes. Guide us in directing our dinner discussions toward spiritual things, such as your love and care, so our baby grows up in a home where you are the center. Remind me to sing spiritual songs and speak Bible promises over my baby, even while in my womb. Amen.

Prayer Against Disease During Pregnancy
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, I pray that you keep my wife safe from all disease during her pregnancy. I pray against urinary tract infections, colds and other viral sicknesses, and any other sort of infection. Protect her from diabetes and blood sugar disorders. Keep her blood pressure in a healthy range – keep it from getting too high. Guard her from anemia and blood clots. Keep her heart and thyroid healthy. In Jesus’ name, I rebuke all medical problems that would cause harm to my wife’s body or cause a miscarriage or stillbirth. She is in your hands, mighty and all-powerful God. Amen.

Prayer for Healthy Weight Gain
Wonderful Lord, I pray for a healthy and steady weight gain during my pregnancy. I rebuke nausea and heartburn that affect my appetite and how much I eat. Help me to eat enough so that my baby grows normally and is not too small at birth. Guide me in making wise food choices so I gain enough weight but not too much. Guard me from eating too much sugar or unhealthy fats. Remind me to go for walks and other types of safe exercise, even when I don’t really feel like it. Bless my baby with a good weight at birth. Thank you, Lord, for holding me in your hands and helping me through my pregnancy. Amen.

Prayer Against Depression
Lord of heaven’s armies, I pray that you protect my wife from depression during her pregnancy and after our baby is born. Show ways to me, our family, and our friends that we can be supportive and encouraging to her through this time. Guide me in my words and in my actions so that I can say and do things that will help her feel safe, loved and cherished. Guard her from worries about health or finances or other things that might make her feel sad or hopeless. Defend her against hormonal changes that might trigger depression. Boost her self-esteem and help her feel confident that she will be a wonderful mother. Amen.

Prayer for Successful Breastfeeding
Lord, my Provider, I praise and thank you for the wonderful miracle of this new life growing inside of me. I want to be the best mother possible for this precious gift from you. I want to breastfeed my baby, so he or she will be healthy and we can bond well. When my baby is born, I pray that my baby will be able to breastfeed well, and that I will be able to produce enough milk. I pray against infections or pain while breastfeeding. If any problems arise, please send an experienced nurse or another helper to support me through the process. Amen.

Prayer for Confidence and Joy
God, the Creator of all things, I am almost speechless with joy that I will soon be holding my new baby in my arms. But I often feel nervous about being a new mother and whether I’ll do everything right. Even now, before my baby is born, give me the confidence I need. Help me to just enjoy this pregnancy and the life forming inside me. Help me to trust my God-given instincts and in your guidance. Assist me to be flexible, to accept help when it’s offered, and to maintain a sense of humor. Let me know everything will be alright. Amen.
