Sometimes having a baby is more difficult than you expect. Let these six prayers guide you when you’re trying to conceive.
Prayers to Conceive a Child
Starting a family is something most couples desperately want, but it is not always easy. Many complications can arise for those who are trying to conceive and sometimes it just doesn’t seem fair. However, one way to pursue having a child is to ask for God’s blessing and His support while trying to conceive.
By letting God know how much you want a baby God will be able to see how committed you are to loving and raising your child. Since having a child is one of the most rewarding parts of life, it is a choice that should never be taken lightly. Despite the obstacles you might face when trying to conceive, asking for God’s guidance and support is the best way to start your own family. Here are six prayers to help you understand the magnitude of having a child and ask for God’s blessing for you to take on this wonderful responsibility.
Reward I Will Cherish
Heavenly Father, I come to you today and always your loving servant to ask of You a request to be able to conceive a baby. This is a reward that I will cherish with my life. I thank you for the blessings I have and for the blessing I am about to receive. I believe in Jesus’s name and do not take him for granted. I love you Lord with my whole heart and I know I am not forsaken or forgotten. Amen.
Heavenly Father, You know my deep desire for a child. A little one to love and to hold, to care for, to cherish. Grant that my body may conceive and give birth to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image. Guide me in all my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy and my baby’s birth are in line with Your will. Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer of my heart, mind and spirit. Amen.
Nurture and Protect
Dear God of Goodness and Grace, Hold us close. We’re sad and hopeful, anxious and excited, longingly waiting for the moment of conception. May it be Your will that the life of our child begins soon. Choose the best from us both to form a new soul. Place it ever so gently in my womb where I will nurture and protect the precious gift of life I am about to receive. Amen.
Grounded in Love
Our Father, my spouse and I bow our knees unto You. Father of our Lord Jesus Christ of whom the whole family in heaven and on earth is named, we pray that You would grant to us according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with might by Your spirit in the inner man. Christ dwells in our hearts by faith, that we –being rooted and grounded in love–may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is breadth and length and depth and height of the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that we might be filled with all the fullness of God.
Fruit of The Womb
Father, we thank You that children are the heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward. Children are Your idea, Father; You thought up children, and family, and home. You instituted the family in the Garden of Eden. You ordered children; You commanded them when You said to Adam and Eve, “Be fruitful and multiply.” You said that the barren womb is never satisfied. Lord, the Word declares that I am wonderfully and fearfully made by You; therefore, I’m perfect and able to conceive and have children. Please give me the opportunity to carry out this blessing and use this magically gift to create my own family.
