10 Powerful Prayers For Newborns

A newborn baby is a gift from God. Prayers for newborns are as essential as water for a newly sprouted seed. A new life is a new chance. It gives you a fresh start. God wants us to procreate (Genesis 9:7). New life gives us continuity. A lot of people find it hard to create new life so when God gives us the gift of a newborn we need to be grateful.

Having a child is a lifetime commitment. Children get to be with us for all our lives but we only get to be with them for some of their lives in most cases. Do not forget that trees begin very fresh, small, and weak but end up big strong and very tall. You have to train a child in a way that you want them to grow in the future (Proverbs 22:6).

Prayer is a way for our spirit and soul to communicate with God. When you pray for your newborn, you create a world of favor in the spirit realm for them. You usher your baby into the world in God’s hands when you pray for them.

You will not be with them physically every step in their lives so you have to spiritually commit them into the Father’s hand so He becomes a light unto their path in dark times. It is very critical that you understand the importance of prayer for a newborn child. Give them the strongest of foundations to grow on and they will never be uprooted.
