6 Heartfelt Prayers for Pregnancy

Whether you’re praying to get pregnant, praying for a current pregnancy, praying about pregnancy complications, or praying for a pregnant friend, I’ve got you! I’ve been in each of these situations at some point during my life. These prayers for pregnancy will be sure to get you started with your own prayers.

Prayer is such an important part of the Christian life. We need to lay all of our burdens on God and not carry them ourselves. Sometimes that’s easier said than done though, right? It can be especially hard when we’re experiencing hardship or a surprise situation. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us, but these pregnancy prayers will be a great start!

Prayers for Pregnancy

I always loved being pregnant! However, after some losses, I realized what a miracle each new life is. Because of that, I want to guide you through some prayers for pregnancy. As I mentioned, these will cover a variety of situations, but I pray these are a blessing and comfort to you as you pursue pregnancy or rejoice in a new baby.

Miracle prayer for pregnancy

Are you praying for the miracle of pregnancy? You’ve been trying to have a baby and it just hasn’t happened yet? While I can’t speak from a place of never having been pregnant, I was open to more children after our last child. In fact, I definitely did plenty of praying for another baby. The past six years have given me a taste of infertility and that miracle prayer for pregnancy.

"Lord, You know my heart's desire to have a baby of my own. Every single month it's devastating when I realize I'm not pregnant yet again. I know that You have a plan for me. Help me to trust in You no matter what, but I also know that You want us to ask for gifts from You. I'm asking for a baby. Please balance what needs to be balanced, and help me to be able to get pregnant and carry a baby. Please give me a miracle! Amen."

My prayer is that these prayers will be helpful and comforting to you during this time of your life.

Since I’ve been pregnant many times and experienced healthy pregnancies, miscarriages, and even infant loss, I’ve learned that each baby is a precious gift from God. I’ve learned that each life truly is a miracle. I pray that miracle for you!
