What can one do when a newborn is in NICU fighting for its life in the first few days of existence? Praying to the creator, giver, and protector of life is the wisest thing to do. You are not less of a guardian angel as you are here today praying for that defenseless baby lying there in the incubator, infant warmer or bed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit because a particular condition is threatening its life.
When a baby is born, it truly brings so much joy and happiness to all and sundry because a new hope has been realized. But at joyful seasons like this, some situations may colour and alter the rejoicing and celebration because the child born has some complications. These complications may be mild or severe. No matter the degree of threat to the new baby’s well-being, praying for a baby in NICU is indeed worth every second spent on it.
You may be the lucky parent, or just a well-wisher with a golden heart, do not allow the present situation to puncture your joy because that’s exactly what gives pleasure to the devil. But gather the loins of your heart and mind and say these prayers for the baby in NICU for your little one with faith in your heart and watch your sweet baby respond to all care and treatment with great speed.
Dear reader, you may not have a child in the NICU but can send these prayers as messages to someone passing through the same situation. You can also say the prayers for baby in nicu on behalf of the parent as far as your heart is big enough to spread the love of Christ to others around you. Insert the name of the baby where appropriate if the baby already has one and if not just pray and see that mountain of sickness and disease melt before the power of faith in the name of Jesus.
