I once read a quote that says, “there is always always something to be thankful for.” This is even truer when you have a little one growing in your womb.

I’ve written out some verses from scripture to help you express gratitude to God for your unborn baby.

With everything going on in the world right now, believing in God for protection is so important.

I love Psalm 91 because it’s a promise from God to keep us safe and secure even in times like these.

It’s the perfect bible verse for baby protection.

Confess this psalm of protection over your baby often!

Psalm 91

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. 

For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. 

Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. 

For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

 You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.

 When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.


Every mother believes her child is special.

I agree.

God has placed unique giftings in each child. Our job as parents is to help unravel these gifts and talents.

We can also pray for specific giftings for your baby.

These baby bible verses are a great inspiration for the types of skills, competencies, and intelligence you can pray over your child.

1 Corinthians 12 : 4 – 11

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice ; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.  The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.
