Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 16

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 16

Welcome! If you’re pregnant or wanting to pray along with an expecting friend or family member, you’re in the right place. Pray along with us as we cover developmental milestones, scripture and prayers for each week of pregnancy. 


Week 16

During week 16 of pregnancy, your baby is the size of an avocado. Your little one’s nervous system is continuing to develop, and he or she is starting to move his or her arms and legs. Your child’s muscles are continuing to strengthen, and you’ll likely feel your baby’s movements at some point in the next 6 weeks. 

Scripture: 1 Peter 4:8

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Prayer: Love One Another

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for the gift of life and for the opportunity to bring a new life into this world.
As I carry my child in my womb, please guide my child’s growth and development throughout my pregnancy. May my baby be surrounded by Your love and protection. May Your light shine brightly upon him or her.
I ask that as my child grows, You bless my little one with kindness, compassion, and love for others. May he or she be a person who brings joy and comfort to those around them. May my baby love others well.
I ask that You give me the strength and wisdom to be the best parent I can be, to lead by example, and to instill these values in my child from a young age. May my sweet baby always feel loved and supported, and may he or she know You are always there.
In Jesus Name,
