The period of pregnancy comes with a lot of fear and anxiety. It is especially true if that is your first baby. I believe prayer in pregnancy helps to relieve stress and anxiety. As Christians, it is essential to pray for healthy pregnancy. Prayers open your heart to God and tell Him your worries. There are so many things that you want to pray about during pregnancy; sometimes, it becomes difficult to document your thoughts properly.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words.Proverbs 18:21
During my first pregnancy, I read the book Supernatural Childbirth, and it helped form my opinion of praying during pregnancy. I have created a 30-day pregnancy prayer plan you can follow daily for the next nine months. These pregnancy prayers can guide a husband’s prayer for a pregnant wife.
Each of these prayers is in different categories:
- Prayer of thanksgiving
- Prayer for medical personnel
- Prayer for the baby
- Prayer for the mother
- Prayer for the parents and siblings

Prayer of thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is important for believers. We can touch the heart of God through thanksgiving.
Thank you for the beautiful gift of a baby. Thank you for the privilege of being a custodian of your heritage. I acknowledge the grace you have given me to be a carrier of this blessing; I do not take this privilege for granted. Thank you for an enjoyable pregnancy and delivery. I thank you because I will carry this pregnancy to term, and your great power is upon me. Thank you for being God all the time.
Prayers for Medical Personnel
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.Proverbs 21:1
I pray that every medical personnel that will attend to me during this pregnancy will take care of me under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You are the great physician, and you know how best to take care of a patient and help them take care of me properly. They will not miss any crucial details. I pray that you will fill each personnel with the spirit of patience to listen to my concerns and deal with them appropriately.
I pray that you will fill every personnel available on my delivery with the Holy Spirit. They will attend to me with precision and accuracy. I pray for divine guidance and wisdom, and they will not make a mistake during this process.
Prayers for the baby
I pray for my baby; it is well with him. I pray that every organ in his body (lungs, kidney, heart, blood vessels, bones etc.) Grow properly. I pray for a gentle, calm and sweet temperament for him. The Lord will give him sound health and a sound mind. I pray that every part of his body grows and functions appropriately. May his body parts be perfect and in good shape.
Pregnancy Prayers for the mother
I pray for the grace to carry my baby to term. I ask for divine strength and power to have an enjoyable pregnancy. I pray in faith that this pregnancy will be easy, smooth and full of testimonies. I pray that every organ in my body functions properly and adequately. This pregnancy will not be a burden to my body.
I declare that all my reproductive parts agree and function correctly to nurture and deliver a perfect baby. When it’s time to have my baby, I receive grace and strength; I obtain wisdom and calmness through the process of labour. My water will break at the perfect time; the baby will turn to the birthing position. My birth canal will open up properly and efficiently for smooth delivery.
Lord, I declare that there will be no postpartum crisis. I will not fall into postpartum depression. I won’t have post-delivery complications. Breastfeeding my baby will be easy and stressless for me.

Prayers for Parents and Siblings
I pray for my partner; I ask you to give him the grace to support me in this pregnancy. I pray that your mercy and grace will show forth for him. He receives the grace to make the right decisions for the baby, and we receive wisdom to train our baby in the way of the Lord.
I pray for our little one’s sibling(s); Lord, help them love each other. May your strong love bind them together? They will not be enemies of each other.
