Softly let my prayers fall
(A prayer poem for a healthy baby girl or boy)

Softly let my prayers fall
Upon your womb today.
Protect this little one O Lord
With perfect growth I pray.

Encircle them with love and peace
Cradle them in hope.
Send your angels to stay near
Mum and baby both.

Fill their hearts with dancing joy
At this precious time.
Let them rest on sweet soft promise
Until it’s birthing time.

Then wrap them in endless love
Cover them with grace.
Soon these two souls with bonds so strong
Will meet love face to face.

(prayer poem by Julie Palmer)

O Lord of all,

You alone intimately know the little one I carry. You are the creator, the author of all life, your touch can transform, heal and restore.

Please touch this little life now that we carry and bring wholeness and life to him/her. Just one touch from your eternal hand of healing is all that we need.

We live, breathe and hope in you.

Dear God,

May you watch my sleep as I carry this baby.
May your hand be upon this little life as it develops in my womb.

We rest in you.
