Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 40

Praying Through Pregnancy - Week 40

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 40

At 40 weeks pregnant, your baby has reached the size of a small pumpkin, and it's an incredibly exciting time. If your little one has already made their entrance into the world, congratulations! However, if your baby is still nestled comfortably in your belly, don't worry - many newborns arrive a bit later than expected. You've got this! And soon, you'll be holding your precious bundle of joy in your arms, savoring the magical moments of this incredible journey.

Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Prayer: Plans

Dear God,

My heart is overflowing with gratitude. Thank You, Lord, for the wondrous gift of life You have bestowed upon us. Every moment of this pregnancy has been a testament to Your love and grace, and I am deeply thankful for the miracle of new life.

I come before You today with a prayer of thanksgiving and hope, guided by the beautiful promise in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." I trust in Your divine plan for my child's life, and I pray that You would bless them with a future filled with hope, purpose, and boundless possibilities. May their journey be marked by Your presence, guidance, and love, as they walk the path You have set before them.

Lord, I commit my child into Your loving hands, knowing that Your plans for them are beyond anything I can fathom. May their life be a testimony to Your grace, and may they grow to be a source of hope and inspiration to those around them. Bless them with health, wisdom, and a heart that seeks You in all things. Thank You once again for the precious gift of life, and for the great things You have in store for my child.

In Jesus' name, I pray,
