Prayers for a newborn baby.

Whether you are a new mom or dad, or are already seasoned parents, these prayers are written for you by mom and dad of two young kids.

When we became parents, we were overwhelmed with the miracle of our first born child, Rhett. We had lost our first two children in the previous pregnancies. Because of our loss, the birth of our third child, and first born, was impactful, deep, and breathtaking.

We recently were given another miracle, our baby girl Lucy. After surviving unthinkable odds, our daughter made it through pregnancy and was born in October 2017. She has overcome a lot – and still is! If you are interested in reading about that amazing story, you can check it out here: Lucy’s Story.

But, back to the prayers for a newborn baby, we hope you realize what a joyous and overwhelming experience a new child is. Whenever a new baby is born, it brings with it the light of Jesus and the hope of fresh beginnings and the awareness of what utter innocence looks like.

Being around a new baby is like being very close to Heaven.

But new babies bring a lot of responsibility and concern with them, and with joy also can come confusion and anxiety. There is a lot to take care of and newborns need so much care and attention. If you’re a new parent, this can be especially trying as you adapt to what it is like to take care of something so helpless.

That’s why we created these 21 prayers for a newborn baby. We wanted to help celebrate with you in thanksgiving to God and also to ask for equipping and protection. All of these prayers are from our hearts and written through the lens of being a parent to a newborn. We sincerely hope these 21 prayers for a newborn baby encourage and prepare you for your amazing journey.
