This prayer page is a place of sincere, deep, and meditative prayer for babies worldwide. Families with premature, ill, or very sick babies are invited to send their prayer needs and a picture, if possible, of the baby to be placed on this page. Women contemplating having an abortion vs. choosing life for their baby are asked to share their difficulties in making that decision. Any woman or family member experiencing a crisis or high-risk pregnancy is invited to share their prayer needs. This is a place of prayer not counsel. All that is needed to receive our prayers is to tell us what you are going through.

This page is a prayer network of churches, Christian organizations, prayer sites, prayer groups, and loving individuals walking in Christ’s light established to pray fervently. We will PRAY LIKE HANNAH DID, for each and every baby, mother, or family member that is added to this page. The people who create this network know how powerful prayer is and that it works. We invite you to pray with us. Prayer changes situations. Prayer changes lives. Through prayer miracles happen.

We do not know God’s plan and accept however He answers our prayers, but we do believe He answers us just as He answered Hannah. She was told she would never have a child, but she did not accept that. She prayed for and was given a son who she named Samuel.

Please submit your prayer needs below so that we can pray with you for the health and life of your baby.

Prayers for a Mom

Today I received an email from a friend of a mom who was scheduled to have NICU pictures taken soon of her baby girl. The email asked for prayers. Prayers for this brand new mom, who after weeks of bed rest, delivered her beautiful baby girl prematurely. It was not the Lord's plan for her baby to live a long life here on earth as this morning she passed away. We ask for prayers for her mom in this time of sorrow and loss. Prayers for her friends and family to be able to cope and help her during the long difficult road ahead.

Psalm 34:18 says The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

We also ask for prayer for one of our volunteers. Her mom is very sick and today she had very difficult decisions that laid in front of her. Please pray for her and her mom.

Kai weighed 1lb 13.6oz (840 grams). As of today he weighs 3lb 3.9oz (1,470 grams)!

He was on CPAP and last Friday moved to the nasal cannula but then after five days is back on CPAP. Kai's due date was September 21, 2011 so that is still the estimated date to go home. Please keep this little bundle of joy in your prayers.

Avery had the PDA (Patent ductus arteriosus) ligation at 9 days old...she has 2 large ASD's (atrial septal defect). She also has a neurological condition called Dandywalker syndrome. She eats with a feeding tube. She is having open heart surgery on Aug 8, 2011. She was born at 23 weeks 3 days, and has been out of the NICU for 1 year.

A little information for our prayer partners: The ductus arteriosus is a normal fetal blood vessel that closes soon after birth. In a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) the vessel does not close and remains "patent" resulting in irregular transmission of blood between two of the most important arteries close to the heart, the aorta and the pulmonary artery. PDA is common in neonates with persistent respiratory problems such as hypoxia, and has a high occurrence in premature children. In hypoxic newborns, too little oxygen reaches the lungs to produce sufficient levels of bradykinin and subsequent closing of the DA. Premature children are more likely to be hypoxic and thus have PDA because of their underdeveloped heart and lungs. An An ASD is an atrial septal defect, which is a hole in the wall that connects the two upper chambers of the heart. An ASD is caused by incomplete development of the heart.

Dandy-Walker Syndrome is a congenital brain malformation involving the cerebellum (an area at the back of the brain that controls movement) and the fluid-filled spaces around it. The key features of this syndrome are an enlargement of the fourth ventricle (a small channel that allows fluid to flow freely between the upper and lower areas of the brain and spinal cord), a partial or complete absence of the area of the brain between the two cerebellar hemispheres (cerebellar vermis), and cyst formation near the internal base of the skull. An increase in the size of the fluid spaces surrounding the brain as well as an increase in pressure may also be present.
The syndrome can appear dramatically or develop unnoticed. Symptoms, which often occur in early infancy, include slow motor development and progressive enlargement of the skull. In older children, symptoms of increased intracranial pressure such as irritability, vomiting, and convulsions, and signs of cerebellar dysfunction such as unsteadiness, lack of muscle coordination, or jerky movements of the eyes may occur. Other symptoms include increased head circumference, bulging at the back of the skull, problems with the nerves that control the eyes, face and neck, and abnormal breathing patterns.
Dandy-Walker Syndrome is frequently associated with disorders of other areas of the central nervous system, including absence of the area made up of nerve fibers connecting the two cerebral hemispheres (corpus callosum) and malformations of the heart, face, limbs, fingers and toes.

Praying for mom and baby

Yesterday I met the CNO at The Med. I was told about a family and I wanted to ask for prayers. The mom was told long ago she would never have children so she adopted 2 beautiful babies. Since, she has gotten pregnant and given birth to a baby boy who was born prematurely. He is in the NICU now. The saddest part of the story is that mom has terminal cancer and is already on palliative care. If you or someone would like to donate directly to this family in any way, even just a card, please feel free to email We are putting together a care package for her with gas cards and gift cards, planning to deliver in about a week. Most of all thank you for your prayers. She does not speak English (if you send a card for her)

Emergency Prayers Needed for Aara

Just got word from Aara's mom that she is not doing well right now. They are on somewhere around day 150 in the NICU and the Doctors are considering a lung transplant next. They are telling her they are out of options. After Aara had the tracheotomy, last week, she has been going up and down in saturations. Now the current hospital she is at seems to be at a point where they don't know what else to do. Her family is considering a hospital transfer at this point and overall very distraught. Please keep them in your prayers today and in the days following. Please share this prayer wall with any others who may join in prayer with us today. Thank you!

Prayers for health, comfort, strength, faith, and help in making difficult decisions. Share this and lets get a Preemie Prints prayer chain going ♥

Pray for Mighty Maggie Maybee!

Update: Maggie went to play with angels. Please pray for her family through this extremely difficult time. May Maggie Maybee help to watch over her parents as they grieve her physical body on earth. She is still with them and always will be. Here is a prayer that was posted by her father's sister on their blog documenting this time. It was too beautiful not to include here.

This is my prayer: “Father, you are good. You are mighty. You are in control. You are compassionate. You are love. You are sovereign.  Lord, I don’t understand Your plan sometimes. I don’t want to lose Maggie. I don’t want my brother and Joy to hurt and I don’t want to be out of control. Father, I don’t trust you as I should and I repent of my lack of faith. Lord, please help me to trust you more. Please help me to remember that you formed Maggie and You know exactly the number of her days. Give Stephen and Joy rest and comfort and healing from their sorrow.  Lord, teach us to trust you. Thank you for giving your own Son for me and my sin. Allow me to remember your sacrifice daily. Convict me to live for you that I may be with You in glory soon. 

Little Maggie needs our prayers. She was born prematurely with health issues and has had good days and bad days since birth as usual with the NICU roller coaster. Yesterday was not a good day. Her doctors are concerned her liver is failing and she has been requiring more oxygen in the past two days. Her liver is a list of many other organs that are not functioning properly. Please pray for Maggie and pray for her parents as they face this extremely difficult battle.

Her father's beautiful prayer:

As always, your prayers are coveted. Prayers for peace and comfort are greatly needed but prayers for miracles won't be turned away either.

Update On Aara

Hi prayer team we need some special prayers to go out today for baby Aara. Here is a recent post from her mom:

"Just a quick update: Aara is critically ill, has been since Monday. She has been requiring higher vent support and oxygen and her lungs collapsed yesterday and today. Today her O2 went down to 83 and her saturations are much better. She is on antibiotics, and a slew of medications for hypertension, etc. She is still eating, and voiding well. Please take a quick moment to pray for her recovery and her homecoming."

One of our volunteer moms posted this to our online group. As she is recovering and healing she needs as many prayers as she can get. Thank you for praying for Sarah, she is a wonderful amazing mom in need of many prayers.

So I just woke a hospital bed! Happy mothers day wkd-I had a seizure and mild heart attack and my mom found me passed out-I will be here for awhile, I have been diagnosed with eclampsia-had my mom not found me when she did I wouldn't be here to write this! It' tried to kill mr while pregnant and eclampsia is what sets in afterwards-trying to kill me now. I didnt feel right since having the twins but just didnt bother with it thought 2 pregnancies in one yr just hit me hard. I never stopped bleeding from it either, so they have me going in tomorrow to have the piece of my placenta removed that is causing it all. Really im in shock I cant believe this happened to me! Im ok for now thank god it could have been worse and may get that way. My mom called 911 and she brought my laptop knowing I need love and support-from you guys! (From Sarah Doyle)

Two Moms In Need Of Prayer

Two very special moms are in need of prayers, please. Maria is carrying a baby (James) with what is expected to be a fatal condition (OI2). The other mom is carrying conjoined twins who cannot be separated. Breathtakingly difficult situations, both moms need lots of prayer support. 

A Mother's Love

Chris Charles
 A mother’s love is something
That no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
And of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
And enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
Or take that love away…
It is patient and forgiving
When all others are forsaking.
And it never fails or falters
Even though the heart is breaking…
It believes beyond believing
When the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
Of the rarest, brightest gems…
It is far beyond defining.
It defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
Like the mysteries of Creation…
A many splendored miracle
Man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

Pray for Preemie Kennedi Zahar

Kennedi Zahar was born at 24 weeks gestation at 1lb 10oz. She is now 34 weeks old and 5lb 1oz; she is still in the NICU in SC. It is about 1hr and 15min from where I live. I'm so proud of her because she is fighting this fight mostly without my presence, I can only afford to see her 2x a week. So please pray for her continued success and that she will be able to come home soon.

About her name:
The morning I gave birth to Kennedi I went online looking for names for her, because her dad and I had not decided on a middle name yet we only had Kennedi. I typed in baby girl names and instead of starting under the "A" like usual I started at "Z". There was the name Zahar it meant "small blessing" when I saw that I had to make that her name. Kennedi Zahar, for she is our "Small Blessing"

Thank you for your prayers,


Update: Kennedi has passed her car seat test and will be coming home soon! God is good. I have been in awe of Kennedi's mom this entire time as she has been driving back and forth to the hospital and only getting to spend a few days a week with her little girl. I am so happy she will have her home soon.

Pray for Preemie Alicia

Alicia is currently in a NICU getting stronger every day. When I asked her mom what she would specifically like us to pray for she said, "I am worried about Alicia's growth.

Alicia also has a new cousin who was born premature.

Baby Rhonda

Rhonda is a preemie who was born on Christmas Eve at only 24 weeks. She is still on oxygen and has a feeding tube. She is up to 5lbs and 5.5oz though which is a wonderful thing to see her growing. She has been in the NICU for almost 3 months. Please pray for her and her families strength as they continue down this long road. 

Baby Joaquin

UPDATE 3/28 (From his mom)
Joaquin started having issues with his oxygen and
his heart rate earlier in the day yesterday. His hemoglobin levels
were low so they thought this was the cause of all his issues. He
received a blood transfusion at 1:30 pm and he was still having the
oxygen and HR episodes throughout it. His oxygen levels dropped down
to 40 which is not normal for him at all and his blood oxygen gas was
very elevated so the doctor decided to put him back on the vent and
start him on antibiotics.

Please pray for preemie Joaquin who was born at only 25 weeks. This is his mom's second time in the NICU. He has had his ups and downs but is fighting everyday. Today he developed an infection, so prayers are really needed to pull him through. His mom sent a picture to post along with the prayer request. May God bless him and his family.

Baby Olivia

She was born at 28 weeks and was a true fighter. I met her mom through our national NICU mom group and we messaged often. Her mom was full of strength even in her most recent message to me amidst her devastation. They will always be a part of our Preemie Prints family and I ask that you keep little Livie and her family in your deepest prayers. God bless them all. I have to say that she is one of the most adorable baby angels I've ever seen.

When I asked her mom a week ago to send me her prayer request this is what she wanted me to add:
"Oh yes please add us...what a blessing! I would like prayers for Olivia Grace's health, for the Vassar NICU Team, and all the families with premature babies that they have all that they need to get through this hard time..."

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit."
Psalm 34:18

I have not had the opportunity to meet her yet but will in the next two weeks. She is currently in the hospital but will be returning home next week. After she settles in I am going to spend the day with her, take pictures, and just have a good time! Her name is Lianna and she has been suffering with Lukemia over the past two years of her life. As I understand, she is scheduled to make a full recovery. I spoke with her father over the phone for some time yesterday, and he says she has been a fighter the entire time. They had a long stay at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Fortworth and now her father, David Saucedo who is a singer and songwriter, is raising money for his daughter's trust fund and RMH through his musical gifts. From talking to him over the phone, I could feel the Spirit working through his families' difficult experiences. He noted that the very hardest point for him as a father was when he received the initial news of his daughter's diagnoses. Through his songs for his daughter, which are really heartfelt poetic prayers set to rhythmic beats, he hopes that The Lord will touch many lives at this same heart dropping moment. 

We ask that you keep Lianna in your prayers as she continues to win her battle over Lukemia and touch many many peoples lives. If you would like more information about her father's efforts through music please continue to the link below. Updates to follow. 

3/8 Lianna is back in the hospital but doing well. Please keep her in your prayers.

Baby Aara

Baby Aara was born unexpectedly at 24 weeks. She is in critical condition and needs all of the prayers we can offer her. Currently she has been in the NICU for over one month and is now being put back on an endotracheal tube. Here is a small piece of information from her mom, "She was put on the CPAP at 7 days old and then taken off because she was not handling it well. When that occurred she went up to 100% oxygen and NO was started on her. She worked her way back down to 33% oxygen over the next weeks and without any nitric oxide so they put her on CPAP again this afternoon and was off by late evening". 

I will add status updates from time to time. Please pray for this preemie fighting for her life!! 

2/17/11-UPDATE: Baby Aara is doing good she is now 2lbs!! Keep praying everyone this tiny baby girl is a fighter. Her mom has been happy about getting to put her in clothes. We are delivering her mom a NICU gift bag today so, I look forward to meeting her. Thank you all----whoever is out there praying please keep going. 

2/19-UPDATE: Please say extra prayers. I spoke with her mom tonight and she is not doing good at all. Aara has been having problems with her lungs. She is very critical please pray!

3/1-UPDATE: Aara is a fighter! She continues to have good days and bad days but is fighting hard thanks to a great NICU team and a very strong mom and dad. Please keep their miracle baby and entire family in your prayers as they continue on their journey.

3/3-UPDATE: I met with Aara's mom yesterday and she is continuing to grow and fight. She is now 2 lbs. 6 oz. She is still on the ventilator although yesterday was taken off of the high speed, which is a positive move. Her body continues to fight infection so her lungs are lagging in development. Please continue to pray for this little tiny miracle.

3/8-UPDATE: I received an email from Aara's mom today she is gaining weight and up to 2 lbs. 11 oz. They will be meeting with their Dr. soon for a status update possibly tomorrow. Lets keep praying for this little miracle baby!!

3/15-UPDATE: Aara is 3lbs!! She is growing like a champ and her mom has started Kangaroo Care. Prayers are working please keep them coming for this little girl and her family. I am attaching a new picture..

3/27-Aara is doing good. Growing more every day!! I am posting a new picture. Her eyes are smiling I love it! God is so powerful. Her mom did find out she has stage 2, zone 2 ROP so we need to pray for abnormal vessels to stop and eyes to heal.

4/4-Aara is 4lbs and on the CPAP again! Pray for her she is growing in all ways. Today was long for her as it was her first day to be switched over. She had to work a lot harder. God bless her!

4/17-Aara had another eye test for ROP and the tests came back negative. She has also been moved to the high speed Canulla and has been on it for 8 hrs now. This is such a great day for her! God is working so beautifully through this family and we pray he continues to make her stronger every day so we can celebrate her homecoming.
