Prayers for the Birth of a Son

Prayer for Him to Know Your Truth:

Prov. 22: 6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.”

We are so grateful for the gift of our son. We thank you for blessing us with this amazing miracle of life. We pray that you will watch over him and protect him always. May he grow to be a strong and healthy man, full of your love and wisdom. We ask that you would guide him through every stage of his life, and help him to always know your truth. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Prayer of Praise for My Son:

Psalm 139:13: “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Dear Heavenly Father, my heart is full today. I humbly can’t comprehend that, from your love, you have known my baby girl before creation; and that you chose to knit her together in your mighty power. To think you did this in response to my prayer for this little girl. You are truly the author of all life who gives perfect gifts to his children.

OPTIONAL: (I’m petitioning you to put your loving arms of protection around my little boy’s mother. Be with her through the labor and delivery journey. May the attending physicians deliver the care she needs for the delivery and rapid recovery.)


I lift up this precious baby son you are delivering to our family. He is truly a miracle of your creation. Bless this child. Bless his health, his heart, and his soul. He comes into a fallen world as an innocent child. Lord, you tell us in Prov. 22: 6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” I pray you will guide me daily to be the parent that pours into my son’s life so he, without a doubt, knows the way to go spiritually. I am ready to mold his heart, with your help, into a young man that honors and seeks you. I pray he grows to be a servant for the things of God. May he be a tender self giver, aware of others around him.

I pray as the parent to have the means to support him in a comfortable lifestyle, not indulging him but making him comfortable with his basic needs met. I will take my role seriously to teach him to love you and his country and to be a productive citizen. Please teach him to be grateful for all the good in his life.

Help me guard and protect him in the days and years ahead.

Thank you, Abba Father, for giving us this bundle of joy. Keep him under your wings and hide him from the face of evil. May your face shine upon him today. Amen
