19 Prayers For Premature Babies

For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to you, For I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well. My frame wasn’t hidden from you, When I was made in secret, woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my body. In your book they were all written, the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand. When I wake up, I am still with you.

Psalm 139:13-18

Finding out you are going to be a parent can be a very exciting and thrilling time in your life. From the day you find out you are pregnant, you look forward to meeting your little one with excitement. But as much as you want to meet them, you also want them to be born strong and healthy and that means you look forward to having a full-term baby.

But when that doesn’t happen and your baby is born prematurely, the excitement you feel turns into fear and anxiety. You want to be happy that your baby is here but on another hand, you are scared that they might not make it, and that makes you sad.

Whiles all these feelings are normal, you should always remember that God is in control. So instead of worrying and being sad, you should go to the Lord in prayer.

God’s plans for us are perfect but the earth that we live on has different effects on us. Consider buying a brand new car which has never known any accidents in the past. All the parts are in perfect condition and there will be no fear of a breakdown or any faulty developments as long as the road you drive on is smooth and nobody crashes into you.

However, also imagine you are driving at night on a road you don’t know that well and a giant pothole suddenly appears in front of you. Chances are you might crash your car and cause it to look nothing like the brand new shiny perfect thing that was delivered to you.

Was it your fault? No. You did not put that pothole there. Your car might never be the same again but you will always love and adore it because it’s your car.

Well, your conceived baby is your perfect car, the unknown road and pothole represent the uncertainties of this earth, and the dinged-up car is your premature baby.

In God’s eyes, the gift he gave you will always be perfect regardless of what this earth does to it. It is our duty as Christians and parents to care for and nurture these precious gifts from God no matter what may have happened to them.

It is our duty to watch them each day and take care of their every need. God does the same for us. There are times when we are broken by the uncertainties of this life.

Whether it is breakups, losing your job, testing positive for a disease, getting cancer, being in an accident, being cheated on, losing a loved one, surviving a traumatic experience, or losing a business, God always takes care of our broken selves and nurses us back to strength.

He never gives up on us no matter how unworthy, broken or downtrodden we may feel. His love is never-ending because he sees us for the perfect spirits he created in his image and not the physical disabilities we may possess.

Your premature baby is a perfectly created spirit by God and even though their physical bodies may be dinged up, God expects you to be there for them and give them strength just as he does for us when we need him.

So don’t be sad. Instead, go to the Lord in prayer for your little one and before you know it, they’ll be home with you. Below are some prayers for premature babies you can say for your little one.

Prayer for the future of preemie baby

As parents, we play the role of God on earth in our children’s lives. They look to us for guidance, protection, and love. It is our duty to provide these things to them unconditionally.

The way our children will turn out in the future is highly dependent on how we love them in the early stages. Nurture them to be strong and they will grow up strong. Care for the gift given you by God with all your heart and with all your strength. Like someone cares for a precious diamond, care for your children and you will receive your reward in heaven.

Don’t you be afraid, for I am with you; don’t be dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.

James 1:17
