Besides investing in the event and welcoming family and friends, prayers during baby showers significantly influence the unborn baby and their mother.
As you consider where to hold your baby shower and who to invite, below are seven excellent prayers alongside free printable to keep you going.
Before you start, save these blessing prayers for a new baby.
1) Short Baby Shower Prayer
“God my Provider,
I praise and worship You today full of joy because You saw (say mother’s name) worthy to carry a baby into this world. We don’t take it for granted.
Today, I come before You thanking You for this gift that we are waiting upon. Thank You for protecting the mother throughout those months and keeping her union with her husband fruitful.

A baby shower is a party full of gifts, happiness, laughter, and great moments as you celebrate the upcoming delivery of a baby and the transformation of the woman into a mother or mother of two or more.
However, the above positive energies can only be assured if you start by welcoming God’s presence and Spirit through a short baby shower prayer.
Besides that, the prayer also delivers calmness and blessing to the expectant mother and her child as they strive to complete the pregnancy term.
The Bible reminds believers of how precious children are before God’s eye. You can also say this Bible verse Psalm 127:3-5:
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.“
Therefore, by praying for them during baby shower, we acknowledge, appreciate, and uniquely share God’s love.

I ask this through Your precious name. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Mealtime prayers are essential conversations with the Creator as we thank Him for His blessings. It’s even better when you are gathered for a meal before a baby shower because you get to thank God for double blessings.

Feel free to add other details depending on how much you know the parents-to-be.

Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but it can be frustrating for others. While you’re happy about welcoming a baby, anxiety can take over as you experience unfavorable body changes and hormonal imbalances.
If you have a colleague, friend, or relative who is pregnant, the best thing you can do at the baby shower is kick off the party with a prayer to welcome the presence of God among you.
Incorporating some Scriptures in your prayers can also substantially impact the parents, the baby, and any couple looking forward to conceiving in the future.

A new baby is everything to thank God for and ask for His blessings upon their life.
Perhaps, new babies are the sweetest yet most confusing thing because sometimes the parents might not know how to handle the constant cries and sleepless nights.
