Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 8

Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 8

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 8

During week 8 of pregnancy, your little one is the size of a raspberry. You won’t be able to feel it until the middle of your second trimester, but your baby has already started moving! Your little one is developing bones and muscles inside of his or her limbs. Tiny fingers and toes are beginning to form from your baby’s hands and feet. 

Scripture: Matthew 28:16-20
Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Prayer: Pray that your child will use his or her hands and feet to live out the Great Commission.

Heavenly Father,
I will praise you all my life and sing praise to you as long as I live.
Lord, I pray that You would guide me in using my time, talents and treasures to honor You, serve You and fulfill Your Great Commission. There are so many people who don’t have a personal relationship with You, and I pray for them, Lord. Remove barriers that are keeping them from drawing near to You.
As our family grows, my availability will change, and I pray You will help me to use my time wisely for kingdom work.
As our child grows, I know I will be responsible for discipling him or her. I pray that You guide my actions and my words. May I model what a true disciple of Christ should be, honoring You and serving You selflessly.
God, my baby is growing his or her tiny fingers and toes right now. I’m forever amazed how You create new life and bring it into this world. May my child grow up and use his or her hands to serve You and bring others to know You. I desire my child to be someone who will share Your message of love and forgiveness to people everywhere.
In Your Holy Name,
