Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 39

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 39

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 39

At 39 weeks pregnant, you'll soon welcome your little one into the world. Your baby is now full-term and measures about the size of a miniature watermelon. These final days in the womb are a time of remarkable transition and readiness. While your baby's skin may have had a pinkish hue, it's fascinating to note that most skin pigmentation changes will occur after birth, as they adapt to the outside environment. Every day brings your little one closer to their much-anticipated debut.

With your child nearly here, you may be getting excited and, also, a little nervous. Spend time with the Lord today. Ask our Heavenly Father to empower you with wisdom needed to help set your child on the right path. Pray that other family members and friends in your life will also be loving role models for your little one.

Scripture: Proverbs 22:6

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Prayer: Role Models

Heavenly Father,

Today, I come before You with a humble heart, seeking Your divine guidance and wisdom as I prepare to become a parent. I pray that You would empower me with the insight and tools needed to set my child on the right path.

Your Word in Proverbs 22:6 instructs, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Lord, I ask for Your wisdom in raising my child, that I may provide a nurturing and loving environment that instills in them a strong foundation of faith, morals, and values. Grant me the patience and understanding to guide them on this journey, and may my actions and words reflect Your love and grace.

I also lift up my family members and friends who will be a part of my child's life. May they serve as loving role models, helping to shape my little one's character and faith. I pray that together, we may create a community of support and love that surrounds my child with positive influences and a network of caring hearts.

Lord, I entrust my child's future into Your loving hands, knowing that with Your guidance and the support of those around us, we can help them find their way in the world. 

In Jesus' name, I pray,
