A woman’s pregnancy is an exciting and joyful moment in her life. However, the pregnancy journey is not a smooth one. Pregnancy can be very challenging. And so, this is the moment to rely on God for strength and safety.
Children are God’s gift (Psalm 127:3), and God is the source of life. We find serenity in Him, we find strength in Him, and we find protection in Him. It might be challenging and hard to go through a 280-day pregnancy.
Morning sickness, general aches and pains in places you didn’t know could hurt. Reading the Bible and praying over your pregnancy are the best ways to receive consolation in the Lord. Here are some prayers to pray during pregnancy to ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Prayers during pregnancy

I pray for strength and good health throughout this pregnancy. I pray for the best for this baby that’s growing inside of me. Protect and guide this child, oh, my God. May any satanic attack on me and this baby developing inside of me be met with fierce resistance.
I pray that you, Lord, who gave me this child, will keep an eye on me and the baby’s development. Carry us through the months and, when the time comes for the birth of the baby, please provide us with the strength and safe delivery. In Jesus’ name, may this baby be a blessing in our lives. Amen

Let your Holy Spirit be with us and watch every stage of this pregnancy.
I pray for miraculous health for myself and my baby. Allow your wind of destruction to sweep away every evil agent working against this pregnancy. The doctor has spoken, but it is up to you, Oh Lord, to decide. What you say about me and my baby will become reality. In Exodus 23:26, you promise that I will not miscarry and that you will grant me a full life span. In Jesus’ tremendous name, I claim your word, Lord.

Father, I ask that my baby’s entire body be properly created and knit together, based on your words. Allow each portion of the body to develop and function properly. Father, make this baby in your likeness. Bless my womb with all the vitamins and nutrition this baby requires to survive. I pray that my child grows up to have a healthy and intelligent brain.
In Jesus’ name, I pray that my baby’s heart will be completely formed and full of love. In Jesus’ name, I pray for my baby’s bones and spinal cord to be healthy and properly formed.

Bless my child with a long and healthy life. And, when the time comes for him to be born, I pray that you grant him the strength to enter this world, in Jesus’ name. Amen
