Pregnancy is one of the best things that can ever happen to a woman. Having a life growing inside of you is one of the wondrous works of God.
Once you discover you are pregnant, your mind immediately goes to keeping your baby safe. You start reading about things you can do and shouldn’t do whiles expecting. You get books and search online to find out more about how your baby is forming and the various changes that your body is going through and then you go to see your doctor to make sure that all is well with you and your growing baby. But that is not all.
Pregnancy is a long journey and not an easy one as such, this is why you need to rely on God to power you through your whole journey. We’ll take a look at some important prayer points for pregnant women.

Pray against pregnancy complications and birth defects
A 280-day pregnancy journey is not an easy one. Each day comes with its own incidence, some days will be hard and others fun – but it will all be worth it. You have to pray to God that no matter what each day brings in your pregnancy, you and your baby will be alright. Pray against any pregnancy complications.
Also, pray against any form of birth defect. God created man in his own image with all our body parts because each part has its own work. So pray to God that just as he intended for man to look like, your baby is formed without any form of birth defects and deformities. Pray to God to help you avoid anything that can be harmful to the formation of your child.

Father Lord, I thank you for this baby inside of me. I pray that you will watch over this baby and it’s development. I pray against any form of birth defect or deformity for this child. Your word says in Ephesians 4:16 that “from you, the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work”.
Father, standing on your words, I pray that my baby’s whole body be fully formed and knit together. Let each part of the body grow and work effectively. Let this baby be formed in your image, Father. Bless my womb with all the nutrition and nourishment that this baby needs to develop well.

Please guide and protect us through these 9 months. I pray for divine health for me and my baby. Let your Holy Spirit be with us and monitor every stage of this pregnancy.
Let your wind of destruction drive away every agent of darkness that is working against this pregnancy. The doctor has said his piece but you Oh Lord, have the final say.

Pray for peace
During pregnancy, it is important to pray to God for peace. Pregnancy comes with its own fears and worries, especially for first-time mothers and high-risk pregnancies, but in all these, you have to remember that God is the one in control and you need not worry. Pray to God to grant you peace.
Worrying and stressing are not good for you on any day and it is definitely not good when you are pregnant. You have to make sure that you are not doing anything that will cause harm to yourself and your body.
Worrying and stressing have been linked to high blood pressure and that can be very bad for pregnant women. So do not be anxious, don’t worry, just pray and let the Lord carry you through the 9 months.
Pregnancy prayer for peace
Heavenly Father, Thank you for looking over me and this baby. Words can’t express how grateful I am to have this baby growing inside of me. Yet there’s also a part of me that worries about this pregnancy. Father, I know that worrying and stressing is not good for my health and that of my baby’s so today, I come before you for peace. Calm my anxious mind.
Let me not worry and stress about this pregnancy. Grant me with peace and serenity. Fill my heart with joy and songs of praise throughout this pregnancy. Give me the courage and confidence to go through this pregnancy. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
Pray for your unborn child
You don’t have to wait for your child to be born before you start praying for him or her. From the day you find out you are pregnant, you can start praying for your child and the life they will come on earth to live.
Pray to God for guidance and protection for your child. Pray that they are filled with love for God and for all. Pray that they are good people who will do lots of good for their society. Pray for blessings for your child, tell God to establish them even before they are born.

Thank you for how far you’ve brought me in this 9 month journey. Thank you for the strength you’ve given my body to carry this treasure. I pray for your blessing on this unborn child. Your word says that even when we were in our mother’s womb you knew us.
Order the steps of my unborn child, Lord. Grant it good strength, good health, and grow this baby in the holy spirit. Take away any infant infirmities, any disorders, any malnutritions in the name of Jesus. Take away any evil plans of the devil concerning my unborn child. I speak grace, favor, riches, wisdom, strength, and power into the life of my unborn child. Thank you, Lord, for answering my prayer. Amen
Pray for your labor and delivery
The final stage of pregnancy can be very scary but there is nothing that God can not do. Pray for your labor and delivery. Pray for strength for yourself and for your baby. Your baby is going to journey down and those few hours can be very crucial. Pray to God to strengthen your baby as he moves him down.
Also pray for the midwives, doctors, and nurses who will be with you on that day. One mistake from these people can cause your life and or your baby’s life. So pray that God works through them to deliver your baby safely. Pray that God gives them peace and helps them to focus.
