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!

I’d like to ask everyone for their prayers. My significant other & I have been TTC for almost 3 years now. I have a baby girl whom I adopted from a family member and I also have custody of another family members child. I love them dearly, as if they were my own (in my heart they are), but my partner and I would like to expand our family with a little blessing of our own. We are constantly praying and keeping faith, but truthfully I feel like I’m becoming a little weary so I ask for your prayers as well. I know that nothing is impossible for my God so it is in his hands. Thank you for your prayers & blessings to all!

I’d like to ask everyone for their powerful prayers. My significant other and I have been TTC for almost 3 years now. I have a baby girl whom I adopted from a family member (before I met my partner), and I also have custody of another family members child. We love them dearly, as if they are our own (because they are in our hearts), but we would like to expand our family with a beautiful little blessing of our own. I really want to experience pregnancy and the whole nine, God willing. We are constantly praying and keeping faith, but truthfully, I feel like I’m becoming weary and I know that is NOT an option. I know that nothing is impossible for my God so we have to keep going strong in faith, but I can’t help but feel like we are being forgotten right now. Please fight with us in prayer, God knows our needs. Thank you in advance for your prayers & blessings to all!

Can I please ask for a prayer for me and hubby as we have been trying for a baby for a while now. I recently found out I had a chromosome abnormality and had endometriosis.

We are starting another round of IVF in Jan 2017 and would really like a prayer for God to bless us with a beautiful healthy baby.

Thank you

Hello, I want you to pray for me, I don’t want to reveal my identity online but the Heavenly Father knows who I am, please pray for me I want to be able to have a child with my 45 year old lady, I ask you to ask God to make her fertile enough to have a healthy young man in our lives, SOON! Amen.


Briana November 29, 2016 at 9:07 pm


This is my very first time reaching out for prayers. If any of you have an extra few minutes, would you please keep my husband and I in your prayers? We wish for one more child and have had no luck in the past 4 months. I am afraid my being 37 is an issue and maybe it is just not in God’s plan. I would like to remain hopeful and with your prayers maybe God will grant us a child to raise and love in his image. Thank you all <3

this is the first time reaching out for prayers I am asking everybody to please pray for me and my husband. We are trying to have our second child after 7 years of trying. I found out I was pregnant and went to the doctors they did an ultrasound and and could not find a baby in the sac. I have a second appointment coming next week and need prayers in hopes that they find the baby.
Thank you everyone.
