6 Prayers For Fertility or a New Baby

by Derek Hill · Print Print · Email Email

There are so many blessings that come with having children! The pitter patter of little feet running through the halls and the laughter accompanying it always makes me smile! Whether you are a parent already or trying to have your first child, you can be assured that children are one of the biggest blessings you have or will have ever. With that said I know some of you are having difficulties with having kids and my heart goes out to you. I understand this as well. I have been through miscarriages in the past and I understand how frustrating it is to try and conceive as well. It took 2 ½ years of trying before my little girl was formed in her mom’s womb. Stay strong in the Lord, and He will sustain you. Here are 6 prayers that you can pray for fertility or a new baby.

Real Rewards

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” (Psalm 127:3)

Gracious Father,

I cannot thank You enough for blessing me with my children. I am in awe every day that I look at them and see myself in their eyes. I remember being a child and being loved by my parents and I also thank You for them, Lord! I want to love my kids even better than my parents loved me, and I hope my children will strive to love their own children, someday, better than I have loved them. I am overjoyed at how they want and desire love from me. I am more than willing to shower them with my love, Father! Thank You for these wonderful kids of mine! I love You, Lord! Amen

Fertility Issues/Troubles

“Behold now, the Lord has prevented me from bearing children.” (Genesis 16:2a)

Abba, Father,

I feel forgotten, Lord. I have cried out to You! I long for a baby of my own, Father. I can’t rely on my own abilities and strength anymore. You are the giver of life and I come to You now. Father, hear my prayer! I desperately want a child of my own. I understand why Sarah was so depressed in Genesis, Lord. She was very old when You gave her a child. Father, if it be Your will, I beg of You, give me a child of my own that I can love on and raise through Your standards. I will memorize scripture with them! I will show them how to love others with a “Christ-like” love! O Father, I am at Your mercy and I pray for deliverance from infertility. I love You! Amen

Surround Us

“When ye frequently, and in numbers meet together, the powers of Satan are overthrown, and his mischief is neutralized by your like-mindedness in the faith.” – Ignatius of Antioch

Prayers for Fertility or a new Baby1Dear Lord,

I thank you for my newborn! His/her eyes are so beautiful when they are open! I am in awe of how You have brought this tiny little baby into my arms! I praise Your Name, Lord! I ask now that You would have our friends, family and church family surround us with their love and wisdom, Lord. I pledge to raise this baby in Your church, Father. May it be that our church family will surround this little one with love, affection, wisdom and song. I love You, Lord! Amen

Strength To Persevere

“How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and everyday have sorrow in my heart?” (Psalm 13:1-2)


I am at rock bottom. My wife and I have been trying for 2 ½ years to have a little baby. I don’t even want to try anymore, Lord. What is the fun in hoping for something that doesn’t seem like it is going to happen? Father, I have nothing left in me. I don’t even want to try anymore to have a child. It is ruining the intimate moments with my wife. We aren’t even enjoying each other. We are exhausted, Lord. I pray for Your strength to press on. Father, if it be Your will, please give us another baby! We are at Your humble mercy, Lord. I love You! Amen


“Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.” (Romans 10:1)

Father, God

You alone have the power to give life in Heaven and death in Hell. I pray for the salvation of my newborn. Father, I pray that by the way I teach my child Your scriptures and truth that he/she will hold fast to Your Word and never walk away. I pray that they will retain the knowledge that they learn and put it to good use in the way they conduct themselves as they grow older. I can’t imagine life without my baby now, and I can’t imagine life without them in Heaven either! Give me patience when they are in sin. May I always show them love even when it doesn’t make sense to them. Jesus showed His accusers love by asking You to forgive them, Father, while He gave His own life up for humanity. May I always have that kind of love for my own kids, that they may grow up knowing You are the One and True God! I love You! Amen


“I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping.” (Psalm 6:6)

Father in Heaven,

You already knew the results of my test before it came back. Lord, there is no chance for me to have babies! I feel so inadequate and abnormal. I don’t feel like a man today. I feel like a failure. Lord, I know you see me differently, but being a man that cannot give my wife the precious gift of children is killing me! How do I move on from here? My wife and I wanted so badly a child of our own flesh and blood, and now that dream has become a nightmare. Father, I have no idea how to process this. I need You now more than ever. Lord, I still want children! Father, if not through my own marriage, please lead us to a child we can adopt. I want to love on a child with the love of Jesus! Father, help me through this as I grieve over my own incapability to bring a child into this world. I need to feel Your presence surrounding me, Father. I need You! I love You! Amen


Whether you have a new born or are having fertility issues, stay in prayer with God. He is always available. If anyone needs prayer, please let me know and I will pray for you. As I said above, I have dealt personally with miscarriages and fertility issues as well. May God bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!

pregnancy help, me and my husband has been married for more than 7 years now and we still don’t have a child of our own, we need help and prayers to get pregnant immediately 2017


Lisa March 26, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Please pray that I heal. Please pray that me and my significant other hold our baby in our arms VERY soon! I am blessed with one son but I would like to bless my SO with another baby. Please pray for us. We have been trying to get pregnant for almost 4 years now.


Jack Wellman March 27, 2017 at 8:26 am

Hello Lisa. I would also ask your pastor and your church to pray for this as more people praying is a good thing for you and your husband to have a child. I assume you are married, right?


Lita March 29, 2017 at 11:47 am

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for 10 years now, we have been to the Dr and done ALL (almost all but 1 for myself) testing for the both of us. I just don’t want to do the last test I need because of the risks. We have been praying and praying and looking for signs to get pregnant this year. My husband has 2 daughters already and I just want to Bless him with a healthy son.


B. Rose March 31, 2017 at 3:01 pm

My husband and I have been trying to conceive going on four years now. I have been praying that if its God’s will that I will conceive, and we will have a health baby. Please pray for us.


carmen April 6, 2017 at 7:29 am

Please keep me in your prayers. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and have an 18 year old daughter. We want desperately to have another child and have been trying for the last 16 years with no luck. I had one horrible miscarriage 10 years ago and haven’t been able to get pregnant since. I am now 42 and time is running out for me so please, pray that the Lord will bless us with another child. I started fertility meds a week ago, so I am praying that this will be it. I will keep everyone in my prayers, thank you and God bless!


Eric April 6, 2017 at 10:02 pm

Please Pray so that my wife and I will have a baby this year, we have been trying for over 7 years. Every time we seem to pray for this it feels like God is saying I’m going to do this for everyone else except you, and I’m going to show you these people to make it hurt more.


carmen April 7, 2017 at 10:15 am

Eric, I know exactly how you and your wife are feeling. It hurts so bad to see everyone else getting pregnant, I would get so mad when someone would tell me that they were expecting. I almost felt hate for these people and I know I felt tons of jealousy, but I have finally gotten over that and you guys will too. I know in my heart that the Lord will bless you with the child you are supposed to have and don’t give up on prayers! God always answers them! It may not be in the time frame that we want, but God knows when the time is right. My husband and I have been trying for around 12 to 16 years and I’m now 42, but I’ve not given up and neither should you! I have started on fertility drugs again, so please keep me in ur prayers and I will keep you and your wife in mine, daily! May God bless you and keep you! Carmen


StarTraverse April 15, 2017 at 10:26 am

Don’t eat the fertility drugs, and see what happens, pray and you will have child


Jack Wellman April 15, 2017 at 12:16 pm

Thank you my friend, but praying does not guarantee a child and so we don’t want to give others false hope. God is sovereign. He decides these things as the Bible says, children are a gift…not from prayer, but from God, but indeed, they should pray but trust in God’s sovereignty (Rom 8:28).


Gloria April 20, 2017 at 12:53 am

Prayer request, me and my fiance have been trying for years to conceive. I struggle with conceiving and have fertility issues I am working with an obgyn for a solution but I feel I need prayer, there ate strength in numbers and I could use a blessing and miracle from the Lord. Please pray for me and my spouse a baby. Thank you.


Jack Wellman April 20, 2017 at 8:56 am

Hell Gloria. You are asking for prayer for you to conceive and it is for you and your finance so are you living together and having sex outside of marriage? This is a very serious sin and people who refuse to repent of this are headed for God’s judgment (Rev 21:8), so please know that God will never bless a couple who is not married and yet having sex outside of marriage. Please, you need to repent of this. Call your pastor, if you even have a church home.


jayanth April 22, 2017 at 2:13 pm

Hello Everyone,
I would love for everyone to pray for us to have a baby as well. We have been trying for about 6 years now. I miscarried about 2 years ago and its been really heartbreaking for me. I’m getting treatments ( a shot today) with my doctor but I feel prayer has a lot to do with this process as well. Please Please Please hear my prayers and I hope everyone joins me.

I am asking prayers for my daughter and son in law who have been trying for 3 years to have a baby. She recently had a miscarriage and took it very hard. I pray God blesses them with a child that they so desperately want.


Carin April 28, 2017 at 6:46 pm

Hello everyone,
My heart aches to for everyone on this site as we are all in the same boat…trying to conceive and it is not happening. My husband and I have been trying for about 1.5 yrs as we got married a little later in life(40 y/o). We are going through our struggle and lots of tears have been shed, however, I have hope in the method we are using. We are doing the Creighton Model Method, NaPro Technology developed by Dr. Hillgers. It’s pretty much all natural and there is a ton of research on it, you can find a practitioner near you. I encourage you to google it just to educate yourself. It may not be for everyone but I have found great comfort in it and know God has me right where he wants me(even though I got a negative preg test yesterday). I will keep each and everyone of you in my daily prayers and I hope you do the same for me. Stay strong and I always have to tell myself, “his plans are better than mine” God Bless
