Our Prayer for Our Baby

When I was conceiving Jonathan, I had this prayer every day. I had it on my office desktop and read this prayer every morning before I start off the day. Indeed, God answered my prayer.

The same prayer for our little one that is somersaulting gracefully in my tummy now.

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the blessing of a new life that comes out of our love union.

We ask you to bless and protect our baby, to fill it with your love, your peace and your joy
– to surround this little baby with the warmth of your love.

We ask you to help it grow and develop into the beautiful child you want it to be. And pray that our baby be filled with as much of the life and spirit of God as his little being can receive.

We pray that God’s love and our love pour into this little baby, so that our baby will feel welcome and at home in this world.

Thank you for this baby and for blessing us and entrusting us with this new life. Teach and guide us in taking good care of this little being in my womb.

 We consecrated our baby to God while he is still in the womb; we asked God the Father to accept him as Your children and to protect him from harm.

In Jesus Christ most precious name we pray, AMEN.
