Pray 31 Day 8 ~ Prayers for the New Baby

Welcoming a new baby into the world is such a joyous thing. The hope surrounding these brand new lives is contagious, so lets cover new babies in prayers that they shine brightly, live well, and find the deepest hope that will keep them anchored when the storms of life whisk by.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for this new life.

We ask for your blessings upon it.

We ask that this child would know your saving grace in a true and intimate way.

That they would love you and love others.

We pray you would make this child wise, faithful, and hungry for your word and your ways. 

We ask that this be a sweet time for the family.

That you will make feeding, sleeping, and the overall transition as smooth as possible.

Please watch over the health of Mommy and Baby.

May this child share grace, hope, and truth with the world. Flourishing in the ways they have been shaped, and walking in the good you have laid out for them.

From the first day to the last, may they live a life that will proclaim the mercy of forgiveness, redemption, and Jesus so that when they see you face to face they hear “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

In Jesus’ powerful name we ask these things,

Amen
