A Blessing Prayer for Newborn Babies
Lord, thank you for this precious blessing! There seems to be no greater physical gift than this sweet bundle of joy, sent straight from You. Their perfect little fingers and toes, the way they smell like heaven, the love that bubbles up – unmatched in its depth. It’s a wonderful kind of overwhelmed.
Please bless this baby, Lord. Place a shield of protection around their little body and guard them as they grow. Keep them safe and healthy, Lord. Help this dear one to know they are deeply and wholly and forever loved – first by You, and then by so many of us. Bless this baby, Lord, and bless their parents. Help them adjust to their new normal as they welcome a whole new person into their lives, hearts, and home. Give them even one whole night of sleep, and give them strength and energy when the nights are short. Blanket their home in peace, grace, and love.
Thank you Lord, for this new life. We praise and thank You for Your good and perfect creation. Amen.
