Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 9

Praying Through Your Pregnancy - Week 9

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 9

During week 9 of pregnancy, your little one is the size of a cherry. Your sweet baby now has all of his or her essential body parts. All four chambers of your child’s heart have formed, and your little one is developing tooth buds in his or her mouth.

In addition to growing your beautiful, sweet baby, you’re also growing your placenta. This organ, which formed in your uterus between 7-10 days after conception, is connected to your baby through the umbilical cord and is critical in helping your baby to grow and develop. In most pregnancies, the placenta begins to take over hormone production and starts providing nutrients to your baby between 8-12 weeks pregnant. When this happens, your own hormones will begin to balance out, and any morning sickness that you’ve experienced will (hopefully) subside. 

Scripture: Romans 5:3-4
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Prayer: Perseverance

Heavenly Father,
Blessed are you Lord. Your praise will always be on my lips.
As I grow this precious child that You designed and created, I pray that You prepare me.
Lord, prepare me for the physical pains that come along with pregnancy and childbearing. Please grant me endurance through physical hardships that I experience.
Lord, prepare me for the mental hurdles I need to overcome. Cover me with Your peace and comfort to rid me of my anxieties and fears.
Help me to keep on persevering with You in my head and heart all throughout this pregnancy journey.
In Your Name I pray,
