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!

Heavenly Father I am so greatful for the love you have shown me and my family by giving us the gift of life and opening the door for us to know better. We believe in you and the promises you make in the bible as such we come to you with nothing but faith that whatever we ask for shall come to pass because you have the last saying. We thank you for the children you gave us before marriage and we also thank you for allowing us to meet inspite living two broken lives. Our marriage has been a start to a fullfilling life with a lot to look forward to. Upon getting married we had one desire to start a family and gave own child that would be a product of our marriage and this has been a mission for the past 2years. We believe in your word, we believe in your love and promises. You have said in your word whatever we ask for in your name you shall provide, you further said that children are a gift from you father and we are anxiously waiting for that gift. You say in your word marriage is a blessing we invite you again to bless our unity and help us fulfill your prophecy that we shall multiply and fill the world. You said in your word that it is through your grace that we may find favour in your eyes, we need that favour Lord change our situation Lord because we know that nothing is impossible to those who believe in your word. We believe in your word and we believe in your promises. Faith has led us to start buying clothes for the little one, everyday building hope and remaining optimistic that you will bless us too. Every month end that proves that we have missed out blessing is a painful experience that one cannot explain. Do not abandon us Lord show us the light in the mist of our troubled life. You are a God of miracles one that turns every hardship to a testimony, allow us to share our journey and show the world what committing to you has done to our family. Allow us to testify about your goodness and mercy as promised in your word. We love you Lord and we ask for forgiveness where we have erred please show mercy and favour in our lives.

We know that nothing is impossible with you Lord. We give you honour and glory in Jesus name we pray. See us through Lord Amen

Please pray for me. I have PCOS and have always longed to be a mother. I recently got married and it seems it’s just not happening. God says be specific when you pray and I have. I would like God to heal my womb before I’m 22 and that I conceive before then. Please pray for me

My husband and I have been married for 8 years and have no child of our own. I have an 11 year old daughter from a previous relationship. I was diagnosed with blocked tubes in 2014 and was told the only way we could concieve was through IVF. We’ve had 2 IVF cycles and they both failed. I ended miscarrying both times. We need prayers now more than ever. We need the LORDs mercy in our lives. My deepest desire (after having a personal relationship with God) is giving my husband children. I feel worthless as a wife and feel like a total failure!


Mary G July 18, 2018 at 8:29 am
