Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 38

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 38

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 38

At 38 weeks pregnant, your baby's growth and development are in their final stretch, measuring in at about the length of a rhubarb stalk. It's a remarkable time as your little one fine-tunes their reflexes, which are now highly active. These reflexes are essential for their early survival, preparing them to respond to the world outside the womb. Moreover, their rapidly maturing brain is now taking the helm, controlling the intricate functions of their entire body. This remarkable development signifies that your baby is nearly ready for their grand entrance into the world.

You've already endured your fair share of mental fatigue and physical pains. Thank the Lord for blessing the weary with strength! As you approach these final weeks of pregnancy, pray for a fresh wave of strength to carry you through.

Scripture: Isaiah 40:29-31

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Prayer: Strength

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am deeply grateful for the journey You have carried me through thus far. These weeks have not been without their challenges. Yet, through it all, Your grace has sustained me, and I am thankful for Your unfailing presence.

As I approach the final stretch of this pregnancy, Lord, I come before You with a humble heart, seeking renewed strength. Your Word in Isaiah 40:29-31 reminds me, "He gives strength to the weary." I place my hope in You, dear Lord, and I ask that You renew my strength, both mentally and physically.

Grant me the endurance to face each day with grace and patience. Infuse me with the energy needed to navigate the changes that lie ahead. As I prepare for the arrival of my precious baby, may Your strength be my anchor, allowing me to embrace this final phase of pregnancy with confidence and joy.

In Jesus' name, I pray,
