Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 18

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 18

Welcome! If you’re pregnant or want 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 18

During week 18 of pregnancy, your child is the size of a bell pepper. The sex organs of your child are now formed and in place. If you haven’t already learned the gender of your baby, you will likely have the option to at your next ultrasound in the coming weeks. 

Those fluttering feelings you might be feeling are called quickening. Your little one is doing all sorts of tricks. He or she has likely mastered the art of yawning and hiccuping. If you haven’t felt a little kick, jab or hiccup yet, just wait - it will be coming soon!

Scripture: Romans 12:10

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Prayer: Respect and Honor

Dear God,
Thank you for the gift of life growing inside of me. As I approach the halfway mark of my pregnancy, I pray that You would bless my child with a heart full of love and a desire to honor You above all else.
I ask that You would help my child grow up showing proper respect to everyone they meet. May they treat others with kindness, compassion, and empathy, recognizing the value and worth of each person as your creation.
Lord, instill in my child a willingness to put aside their own selfish ambitions and desires in order to honor You. Help him or her to see that true greatness comes from serving others and living a life that brings glory to Your name.
I trust in Your love and provision, Lord, and ask that You would guide me as I raise this child to love and serve You. May my child be a light in this world, shining Your love and truth wherever he or she may go.
In Jesus' name I pray,
