What Does the Bible Say About Babies?

Dear Lord God, I would like to ask for your help. Our family has been asking for another little one for some time now. Please find it in your heart to bless me with a baby so that our family may grow. I thank you for all the blessings that you have already bestowed upon us. Amen.

Matthew 18:9-10

And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell. See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

Luke 2:23

As it is written in the Law of the Lord, Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord.

Joel 2:16-18

Gather the people, consecrate the assembly; bring together the elders, gather the children, that nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber. Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, Spare your people, LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’Then the LORD was jealous of his land and took pity on his people.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
