As a caring parent or guardian, it’s natural to be concerned about your baby’s health and want them to recover as soon as possible.

2) Prayer to Give Strength to a Sick Baby

It hurts to watch my baby ailing right now. He/she is so weak that he/she can’t eat, sleep or play as he/she used to. I humbly ask for strength over my baby’s body in Jesus’ name.
Touch him/her with Your healing hands so that my precious baby can regain his/her energy. Breathe new life into his/herbody, oh Lord so his/her appetite, excitement and activeness can return.

Be encouraged by this Bible Scripture from Isaiah 41:10:

Worry and anxiety are the first instincts a parent experiences when their body falls ill.

When Jesus came to Earth, He did not only come for salvation. He came for children as well. Jesus Christ adores little kids.
In fact, the Bible recounts multiple cases of Him healing children.

All children are a blessing from the Lord, which is why it’s so difficult having your little blessing ailing from sickness. At these times, it’s important to stay hopeful and positive.
Surrounding your baby with love and care can help them feel more comfortable and secure, thus quickening the recovery process.
While it can be challenging to have your baby struggle with sickness, remember there is hope for healing made through God’s Word.
The book of 2 John 1:3 declares, “Grace, mercy and peace will be with us from God the Father and Jesus Christ the Father’s Son in truth and love.”
The Lord promises to bless You with grace, mercy and peace as you pray for the healing of your sick baby.
6) Prayer for a Mother with a Sick Child
I ask for Your divine intervention to heal this sick child. It is hard seeing the baby suffering and his/her mother in even more pain because of her child’s illness.
I pray for the baby and mother’s comfort, peace and strength during this challenging time. Let the baby’s mother know that she’s not alone. May she find hope, grace and mercy in You as You surround her with Your loving presence.
I ask in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
It’s widely recognized that mothers suffer most when their children get sick. There’s a deep bond between a mother and her child that transcends basic perception.
If your friend or family member has a sick baby, it’s important to support her in action and prayer. She could be going through great turmoil and desperately needs a hand to hold.
The story of Elijah and the widow of Zarephath is an ideal example to learn from. When she accommodated the prophet of God during the great famine, her son fell ill.
His condition worsened until he died. Of course, the widow was confused and grief-stricken. Since she had no husband or family to help her, she must have been in great suffering.
Elijah then cried out to the Lord on her behalf and begged that He bring him back to life. The Lord heard Elijah’s intervention and raised the widow’s son (1 Kings 17:9-23).
Your intervention for the mother of the sick baby can bring healing and restoration.
Also pray these prayers for your niece.
7) Healing Prayer for Sick Baby
Watch over this sick child. Please grant that he/she may be restored to good health, which is Yours alone to give.
In You I trust to heal my baby with Your powers, love and mercy. With You by our side, there is no sickness that will strive over my baby’s body
Through our Lord and Savoir, I pray, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Sometimes the people entrusted with the knowledge of treatment may fail us. But God never fails us.
Even modern medicine can make errors- from misdiagnosis to failed treatments.
However, the Lord is gracious and mighty to save us and our children from sickness when we approach Him by faith.
Mark 9:17-29 illustrates the case of a father of an epileptic son, who desperately reached out to Jesus for healing after the disciples couldn’t drive out to the spirit that tormented the boy. “If you can, take pity on us and help us,” cried out the father.
He further asked Jesus to deal with his unbelief. Eventually, Jesus healed the boy, never to suffer from attacks again.
He told His disciples, that some illnesses can only be dealt with by prayer. This is absolutely true!
Some health situations might be impossible to cure for physicians but are curable through prayer.
So don’t give up praying for your sick baby to be healed.
Before you leave, read these prayers for your granddaughter.
Can I Pray for Any Baby?
Sure you can! You can channel these healing prayers for any baby.
There are many sick babies in hospitals, in need of hope and perhaps their parents are unable to pray. Your prayers could be really helpful.
Should I Pray Just One Prayer?
It depends on the situation. In some cases, one prayer could bring healing while sometimes you might need to say more than one prayer for God to work.
I recommend praying as many prayers as possible until God heals your baby.
Will God Really Hear My Prayers?
Definitely, He will. This post covers several examples from the Bible where the Lord heard and answered the distressed who called out to Him for the healing of their children. The Lord never changes.
He remains the same as in the days of old. Therefore, be rest assured that God will hear your earnest prayer and answer soon enough.
Nothing is more stressful for a parent than having a sick baby. Whether it’s a serious illness or mild discomfort, watching your little one suffer can be unbearable.
Reflecting and saying these prayers can bring hope and healing and help you respond faithfully to your precious baby’s sickness.
