Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 7

Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 7

Welcome! If you’re pregnant or wanting 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 7

During week 7 of pregnancy, your little one is the size of a blueberry. Your baby’s facial features are becoming more defined and parts of his or her eyes - the retina, cornea, iris, pupil and lens - are starting to develop. While your little one’s eyes will be nearly fully formed in a few weeks, your child won’t open his or her eyes until nearly the end of the second trimester.

Many expecting mamas wonder when the best time is to announce their pregnancy to family and friends. Our advice… choose the timing that works best for you and your growing family. It’s very common for people to wait until they are at least 12 weeks pregnant, as the risk of miscarriage drops after the first trimester. Others choose to tell people right away to form a support network. (It’s never too early to pray for your sweet baby!) Choose what works best for you in the season that you’re in. 

Scripture: Genesis 1:27, 31
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good…

Prayer: Pray that your child will see the good in all that God created.

Dear Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth! You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the day and the night, the land and the sky. You made the plants and the animals and formed mankind in Your own image. You created all things and saw that it was good.
Heavenly Father, as my child is continuing to grow and develop, as his or her eyes are starting to form, I pray when my baby grows up, he or she would see the world as Your creation and intricate design. In a world that sometimes feels full of pain, suffering and evil, help my child to see creation and people with eyes of grace. I pray that my child sees the good and doesn’t lose sight of You, our Maker.
