Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 21

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 21

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 21

During week 21 of pregnancy, your child is the length of a banana. As your little one continues to grow in the safety of your womb, his or her body is developing in amazing ways. Your baby’s tiny digestive system is taking shape, and he or she is beginning to swallow more amniotic fluid with each passing day which helps to strengthen the digestive muscles.

As his or her eyes continue to develop, your little one can now detect light, a marvel of nature that hints at the wonders of the world outside. And deep within his or her growing brain, new neural connections are being formed at an astonishing rate, paving the way for future learning and discovery.

Scripture: Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Prayer: Forgiveness

Dear God,
As I journey through this miraculous time of pregnancy, I am reminded of Your great love for us - a love that is boundless and unconditional, and that offers us complete forgiveness through Your mercy and grace.
Thank You, Lord, for the forgiveness You offer us, for washing us clean of our sins, and for making us new in Your eyes. Help me to embrace this forgiveness fully and to live my life as a reflection of Your love and grace.
And as I prepare to bring new life into the world, I pray that my child will also learn to forgive others freely. Help my child to see the power and beauty of forgiveness, and to practice it in his or her own life.
May my little one’s heart be filled with Your love and compassion, and may he or she always seek to extend that love to others.
