Pregnancy can be a sweet time for growing a baby, but also growing closer to our creator. Prayer, or talking to God, is a simple way to turn our hearts and minds to the Lord. The following prayer for pregnancy can be used daily, when feeling anxious, when decisions need to be made, or whenever!
A Simple, Powerful Prayer for Pregnancy
Let this simple, yet powerful prayer for pregnancy guide you on your journey. I pray that it would soften your heart to the Lord and never become something to “just check off the list” (Hosea 6:6).
Father God, thank you for this day, your holy presence, and this new baby growing within me. Thank you for who you are – a loving, good, and trustworthy God. Oh God, thank you for being in control, and for the wonderful plan you have for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11). You are so good!
Thank you for choosing this baby to be my child, and me to be its mother. I know this is no accident (Psalm 139:13-16)!
I pray that this pregnancy would increase my faith and that my walk with you would grow even deeper. Lord, above all I want to draw closer to you and to please you (Hebrews 11:6). Help my unbelief.
God, there are so many thoughts swirling around in my mind, it’s hard to stay focused on you and what’s most important (Luke 10:41-42). However, in your word you say that if I lack wisdom and ask for it, you will give generously without thinking less of me (James 1:5).
Lord, I pray for wisdom with these new and unfamiliar circumstances I’m navigating through during this pregnancy. God please help me to choose the right people to be around me during this time. Help me to find the right advisors, and sift through all the noise (Proverbs 24:6).
I pray for courage to make hard decisions, and the ability to rest in your perfect peace knowing that, in your strength, I am doing my best (Isaiah 41:10). Thank you for being my peace in the storm (Mark 4:39) and my purpose in life. I love you, Lord.
I pray all these things in your son’s name, amen.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:13-16

When my husband and I wanted to start our family, I prayed to St. Expedite for a quick conception and fast delivery if possible. Boy did it work! I became pregnant after 2 months of trying and was only in active labor for 16 minutes after about 11 hrs of contractions. Wish to tell everyone! Keep praying to him as a saint in mind :)

Love the scriptures. Find them so helpful at this time I require my faith to remain strong as I expect the arrival of our third baby who seems to be staying longer than I expected based on past pregnancies. I've got great peace from God's word as you listed all these promises. Thanks a lot.
