How To Pray For Newborns. A Sample Prayer

God created the family knowing that each individual needs to be surrounded by people who love him. The most important relationships in our lives are those of our families and that is why it is a blessing when families grow at the birth of children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. If your family has grown with the addition of a new baby, you can bless that new creature with this prayer for newborns.

Dear Heavenly Father, We thank you for the blessings you give us, especially for the blessings of being parents. Today we introduce you to the new creature that you have given us. We recognize that our baby is a miracle of yours and belongs to you. For this reason we dedicate it to you in gratitude. Always carry (name) in your hands. Save your steps. Accompany him or her every day of his life. Show him your love always.

Guide us as parents. Give us wisdom, patience, and love so that we can instruct and correct our baby in a way that pleases and glorifies you. Today we renew our vow with you, Jehovah, declaring that you are the center of our home and that Jesus, your Son, is our Lord. Our family praises you because you are a good God. We trust that we are in your hands. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Biblical passages to accompany your prayers

There are many stories of children who were freed from one thing or the other without knowing it because their parents were praying for them at that moment. Never stop praying for your children. What's more, you can even use the same Bible while praying for them. Incorporate your baby's name into each passage and state the biblical promises about them as they grow. Here are some examples. Simply replace each "MY CHILD" with the names of your children.

“I asked the Lord to give MY SON TO ME, and He granted my request. Now I give it to the Lord and it will belong to him all his life." (1 Samuel 1:27, 28).

"Lord, guide me so that I can show MY SON your way so that when he is old he will not turn away from him." (Proverbs 22: 6).

"Lord, teach MY DAUGHTER so that her well being may be great." (Isaiah 54:13).

"Lord, help me to always value MY CHILDREN and allow your angels to always surround them." (Matthew 18:10).

"MY DAUGHTER, May the Lord bless you, and take care of you! MY DAUGHTER, May the Lord make his face shine on you, and have mercy on you! May the Lord lift up His countenance upon MY DAUGHTER, and put peace in her." (Numbers 6: 24-26).

"MY SON, may the Lord's plans be for your well-being and not for your evil, to give you a future full of hope." (Jeremiah 29:11).

“Lord, help MY CHILDREN to be obedient, for they belong to you. That their parents know how to honor us, so that they enjoy the promise you make to those who obey this commandment; so that they do well and have a long life. Help us not to provoke or mistreat them. Help us to raise them under the discipline and instruction that come from you, just as your word commands. "
