I prayed over Bella’s life when she was still growing in the womb. I’m reading the same prayers with her now from my new book, “I’m Praying For You Baby”. Moms you are your child’s first prayer warrior. You have the amazingly awesome responsibility of covering your child with faith and love.
Why is prayer so vital? Prayer is such a privilege. It’s a privilege to express through dialogue, all your concerns and frustrations. Prayer is an intimate act of trust and faith that what you’ve said in prayer is heard and respected. Nothing is off limits when you pray. It’s actually quite comforting to tell God all about what’s on your mind knowing that He isn’t judging you for your fears and doubts. And guess what, as a Mom you’re going to have plenty of those. So, it’s important that you’re praying about everything! From pregnancy to birth to every aspect of raising your little human, learn God’s Word and speak it’s power into your experience.
What to pray? Speak faith over your child’s life. Speak wisdom over their life. From your child’s health and well-being to their behavior and temperament and even about their prosperity and their salvation. It’s important to pray against all the spiritual forces that are very much real and will try everything on Earth to deter your baby’s destiny.
EXAMPLE OF PRAYING FOR YOUR BABY
“Lord God I pray that my child will be a humble, self-less, kind, patient, forgiving and gracious person. I pray Father God that my baby will pray humbly, live modestly and you will allow promotion to bless and reward their humility. I pray my child has an attitude of obedience, submission and they possess the willingness to put others first. I declare Father God that in all situations; my child’s attitude will be that of blessing others with grace, mercy, respect and forgiveness. I pray that my child is happy to allow others to shine and win. I pray God that my child will humbly admit their needs, shortcomings and humbly come before you when they require wisdom. I declare that my child is not prideful but humbly receives advice and happily praises and builds up others. God, I pray that my baby grows to have a selfless heart, willful submission to your best and openness to being used for your glory.”
