Today, we go into something so sacred and miraculous—Prayer Points for Safe Delivery. The Bible is not silent on the beauty of childbirth; it is a divine event orchestrated by the Creator Himself. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5).

The process of bringing life into this world is awe-inspiring but also fraught with its challenges—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Therefore, we must understand that prayer is not an option; it is a necessity. For it is through prayer that we activate God’s promises, protection, and provision for safe childbirth.

We shall explore the spiritual dimensions of childbirth, why prayer is crucial for a safe delivery, and of course, the powerful prayer points that every expectant mother should arm herself with. So, let us stand in faith, believing that the God who began this good work is faithful to complete it. Amen and Amen!

Spiritual Dimensions of Childbirth

Make no mistake, dear brethren, childbirth is not just a physical event; it is a spiritual journey, full of profound mysteries and divine intersections.

The Bible itself is filled with stories that attest to the spiritual significance of childbirth. Take, for instance, the story of Hannah, who was barren but believed in God’s power for the miracle of conception and safe delivery (1 Samuel 1:20). Or consider Mary, the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose faith and obedience led to the most miraculous birth ever recorded (Luke 1:31).

There are spiritual forces, both good and evil, interested in the process of childbirth. While God’s plan is for a safe and joyous delivery, the enemy seeks to steal, kill, and destroy. That is why some pregnancies encounter complications or inexplicable challenges—these are often more than just medical issues; they may be spiritual battles that need spiritual solutions.

In some African traditions, including our beloved Nigeria, elders often gather to pray for a woman in labor, acknowledging the spiritual implications of the birthing process. They understand that it’s a time when divine and demonic forces could be at play, and they align themselves with God’s plan through prayer.

Why Pray for Safe Delivery 

Here are reasons why prayer points for safe delivery are important for any expectant mother:

Divine Protection

Childbirth, being a delicate process, needs the shielding hand of God. When you engage in prayer, you invoke the protective covering of the Almighty, keeping away any harm from both the mother and the child.

Physical and Emotional Relief

The strains and stresses of labor are not just physical but emotional and mental. Prayer provides a comfort that surpasses all human understanding, giving the expectant mother the peace and courage to face childbirth.

Spiritual Support

The process of childbirth draws not just on physical strength but on spiritual resilience. Prayer strengthens your spiritual muscle, fortifying you against any complications that might arise.

Alignment with Divine Plan

Childbirth is part of God’s plan to populate the Earth and fulfill divine destinies. Praying ensures that you are in alignment with this divine plan, setting the stage for a smooth delivery and a blessed child.


When we pray, we often attract other believers to stand with us in agreement. This communal intercession amplifies the power of prayer, providing an extra layer of spiritual support.

So, as we prepare for childbirth or support others who are, let us arm ourselves with these fervent prayers, knowing that “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).
