1. A Prayer for My Unborn Daughter
Thank you for this baby girl — not yet born, but known and wonderfully designed by You. In Your divine providence, You already have plans for this little girl. I pray You will put a hedge of protection around her in the womb.
I pray for the special day You have ordained for her to be born. I ask you to ease concerns or anxieties in her mother about going through childbirth. Bring peace and strength to her heart. I pray the birth process will be smooth.
Your Word tells me that every offspring is a heritage and reward from You. Thank you for this new little person in my womb. I am excited and eager to meet this little girl, God.

2. A Prayer for My Infant Daughter
Thank you for this miracle. As I count every finger and toe, and stroke my baby girl’s forehead, I am overwhelmed with love, but also a great sense of responsibility. Because of her, my life and future are altered — and already, I can’t imagine life without her. She is pure innocence and potential, and I wonder if she will be like Deborah, Ruth, Esther, or Mary in the Bible.
I ask You to help her body develop according to Your plans. I pray for health, protection, and even peaceful sleep. Thank you for this incredible, precious gift, Lord. She makes me smile, and I pray that you will strengthen and bless her from head to toe!
I pray You will bring support to help me in times of need as I care for her. I want to make wise choices to cooperate with You in protecting my little girl now, and as I make biblical plans to guide her as she grows. I want to be sensitive to Your leading, Lord, and vigilant to obey you as her parent. I want to give this sweet baby the best possible life and training. Help me remember I can do nothing apart from You. I am glad my daughter and her future are in Your hands.
