As Christians, we know that God is always with us but offering a prayer for new parents asks the Lord to watch over both the parents and the newborn. He provides guidance and support through every stage of life, including the beginning of a new one. If you know a new parent or have just welcomed a new little one into your family, here are some prayers to help you connect with God’s love and guidance. May He bless your child and watch over them always.
When people invite new life into the world, they are giving life to God’s children. Raising children is a beautiful way to spread good, as new parents can love and nurture a child and teach them about the Savior.
If you care about a couple who are becoming new parents, praying for God to help them and their child is a wonderful way to show that you care. It invites God to help them in their new journey. If you are becoming a new parent for the first time, asking God for help will give you guidance on how to keep your baby safe, happy, and healthy.
This collection of prayers asks God for His help for new parents raising a baby.
Let us pray.
God, thank you for bringing this child into our lives. Thank you for your love and encouragement to us as parents, thank you for the privilege of caring for this new life that is part of you and thank you for giving us wisdom and discernment to be godly parents.
We raise Your name in prayer today.

Bible Verses and Scripture For New Parents
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. – Proverbs 22:6
The Bible provides guidance for new parents and this verse tells us to start children off on the right path and it will serve them throughout life. In other words, it is never too early to start teaching children about God and His ways.
When parents take the time to instill biblical values in their children from an early age, they can be confident that their children will grow up to be faithful followers of Christ.
Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. – Psalm 8:2
Parenthood is a sacred responsibility given by God, and children are one of the biggest blessings in life. This Bible verse is a reminder that despite the challenges and sleepless nights, parents must never forget how special and loved their children are.
Every giggle and milestone is a precious gift from God. And as this verse says, these innocent children are also protectors against evil. By raising children with love and attention, parents are creating a force for good in the world that will eventually triumph over evil. So despite the challenges, remember that parenthood is a holy calling – and your children are your most powerful weapon against the darkness in the world.
