A blessing for oldest children. Ever since I found out that I was having my first child, I have been eagerly awaiting the day of his arrival. After being pregnant for so long, I’ve begun to oversee the little details like how many items the house has and where will we put his or her clothes. Of course, I want to be prepared for the big things too – like buying a crib and shopping for baby supplies.
I have asked God for this child, and he has answered my prayers and given me what my heart has always desired. 1 Samuel 1:27
I will grant you a long life and give you a large number of offspring as a blessing. Genesis 24:60
You are my most treasured son, and I am content with our relationship. 17th verse of Matthew
Today, we come before you to celebrate the birth of our very first child together as a family. We are grateful to you for this favor, and we pray that we may always be deserving of the gift you have given us. Please assist us in bringing glory and respect to you through the upbringing of this child. We pray that this kid may grow up to be a servant who is courageous, obedient, and who sticks close by your side.
Bless us with the discernment to know how to teach our child to love Jesus Christ above all things, so that they may come to know him as their Lord and Savior. Help us to educate them about your Word so that they might have an understanding of the path you have planned for their lives.
Lord, we ask that you watch over and guard our loved ones. Help to protect us from harm and from those that would seek to inflict damage on us. In these times of unpredictability and worry that our nation is experiencing, grant us peace. Please give us reason to believe that, despite the fact that it appears like the forces of darkness are currently gaining ground, good will eventually triumph over evil in this world.
We make our request in the name of Jesus, Amen.
“Behold, children are an inheritance from the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is his recompense,” the scripture says.
Lord, you have shown your favor upon me by giving birth to a son.

At this time, I pray that you will bestow your goodness and compassion upon his life.
hope he may bring blessings to others in the same way that you have brought blessings to me.
I want to express my gratitude for your present and my hope that it will serve as a reminder of your generosity in the future.
Genesis 1:27-28 KJV
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
I am grateful that you gave me the opportunity to give birth to my first kid. I ask that you keep a watchful eye on her and shield her from harm always. Please point her in the direction she should follow and teach her the skills she needs to succeed in everything she attempts. Assist her in being submissive to not only you but also the people around her. Assist her in never forgetting that she is your child and that you care about her a great deal, and help her to always remember this. In Jesus name, Amen
We count it a blessing to be the firstborn, and it is our fervent prayer that this good fortune will follow us throughout our lives. We ask that you, Lord, continue to look favorably upon us and watch over us as we go about our daily lives. We ask that you continue to direct our path and protect us from harm in the days and years to come. We ask that you continue to bestow your kindness and wisdom upon us so that we may live lives that are full of success. We are grateful for our lives, for the blessings you have bestowed upon us, and for everything you have done for us during our lifetimes. We are aware that there is additional labor to be done on this planet, and we look to you for direction as we move forward with the next stages of our life. Help us, Lord, to keep our attention fixed on your word and to be faithful even when it is challenging or uncomfortable to do so. In Jesus name, Amen
In Ephesians 4:2, Paul instructs his readers to “be absolutely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
We hope that today, you, God, who has called us into the fellowship of Christ’s kingdom, would bestow upon us your blessing and protect us.
Help us to see that our lives are not our own, and that the key to our freedom is to know you as the Lord of our life.
Please, by the power of your Spirit, make room in our hearts for your love and grace. As we strive to be faithful witnesses of your love in the world, we pray for one another today as we seek to live our lives.

I ask you to instill in her a love for the same things that you have, to be kind and generous, and to love others as much as she loves herself, just as you have shown her to love.
Assist her in understanding the unique place she holds in your heart and the significance of the honor it is to be the pioneer member of her family’s lineage by letting her know how special she is to you.
I ask God to keep her safe and guard her from all that is harmful. Please hear my prayer and answer it. I pray that you would strengthen her in the moments when she needs it the most and guide her development into the kind of woman who can change the world by embodying the principles that are important to you.

Father, In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, I pray and give thanks to you for this extraordinary privilege. The Bible says the firstborn is yours (Exodus 13:2). God, if you’re listening, grant me a child and make him or her your firstborn. I cast out any omen of infertility and break any curse that may be preventing me from having children.
