Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 31

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 31

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 31

During week 31, your little one is the size of a coconut. At this stage, your baby's head can gracefully swivel from side to side, a testament to the strengthening of neck muscles. Meanwhile, his or her growing body adorns itself with delicate layers of fat, fostering both insulation and energy reserves for the remarkable transformation that awaits. 

Scripture: Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Prayer: Thoughts

Dear God,

As I carry this precious life within me, I humbly come before You, seeking Your guidance. Today, I bring a prayer that encompasses the thought life of my future child, recognizing the profound influence thoughts hold over our actions, words, and ultimately, the course of our lives.

In Philippians 4:8, You lovingly instruct us to dwell on what is true, pure, and praiseworthy. Lord, I pray earnestly that You would instill in my child a steadfast commitment to this beautiful principle. May their mind be a sanctuary, a sacred dwelling place where noble and uplifting thoughts find a welcoming abode.

I ask, Lord, that You guard their precious mind against the perils of negativity, falsehood, and impurity. Guide them away from the snares of harmful influences that seek to distort truth and tarnish purity. Surround them with an aura of discernment, enabling them to differentiate between that which is fleeting and that which is enduring.

May their thoughts be adorned with the brilliance of truth, where honesty and integrity shape their character. Grant them a deep longing for purity, where their actions and intentions align with goodness and righteousness. Illuminate their path, dear Lord, so that they may recognize the praiseworthy qualities in others and within themselves.

I offer this prayer with a grateful heart, trusting in Your boundless love and grace. 

In Your holy name, I pray.
