“Holy Angel, I pray today to ask for myself, but also for the beautiful child I carry inside my belly called (child’s name).

I pray that you give me the strength to face all the challenges that come my way during this pregnancy.

Holy Mighty Angel, you who take care of everything and everyone, I ask that you give me eternal will and spiritual help so that I do not make mistakes during this pregnancy.


You need to also realize that safe pregnancy is paramount for having a safe delivery. 

How can safe pregnancy be ensured?

Well, it can be ensured by keeping to terms with medical terms and conditions as regards what to do and what to eat. 

However, does it mean there cannot be accidents? Surely, there can be!!!

By saying these prayers for safe pregnancy, the mother and unborn child will be protected by guardian angels.

“Almighty Lord,

We thank you for the life of our baby, and at the same time, we pray for the souls of every unborn child in this world. Acknowledge our leaping hearts and grant us the healthy pregnancy we need until our child is born. 

Let their hearts be filled with your Holy Spirit to help them live a Christ-centered life. All these prayers we pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.”

This prayer can cover several aspects. It might not just be focused on the pregnancy stage.

There are other areas it can cover:

  • The life of the child after birth;
  • The life of the mother after delivery;
  • Growing up process of the child;
  • Nurturing process of the child by the mother.

You can capture all of these in this prayer.

“Father God, I pray today with great faith within my heart. I pray today with much love in my heart. I pray today to ask You for help, not for me, but for this baby I carry inside of me.

He/She is not yet born, but already needs God’s protection. That’s why I pray to you, to protect this fetus that I carry inside me. I pray to You to help me have a healthy and safe pregnancy.

Please hear my request, help and protect me throughout my pregnancy.


The unborn baby prayer for healthy baby and pregnancy is specifically for the baby.

As a pregnant mother, you must say this prayer 3 times a day. Don’t worry, this is not a long prayer that will stress you out. All you need to do is recite this prayer 3 times a day for your unborn child

Pray for the day of delivery and the aftermath of the delivery of the child. In addition to this, pray for the health of the child after delivery.

“Grant me a motherly heart that is pure, steadfast and generous. 
I hand over to you my own concerns; 
any anxious fears that may come, 
my own wishes for the little person 
that I still have no knowledge of. 
Grant that it may be born healthy in body, 
keep far from it perils to the soul.”

The Bible makes it clear that it is possible to doubt God when everything becomes bad. When you are expecting a child for a long time, your faith might begin to waiver. 

However, have you stopped to think if there might be a prayer you are not saying yet?

What if you changed the type of prayers you say? What if that was the game changer?

Well, the prayers you are about to read above are synonymous with what Abraham and Sarah prayed to God.
