40 Prayers to Pray During Pregnancy: Part Four

Hello sweet friends! We are now in the last 10 weeks of prayers that you can pray during your pregnancy! Oh, those special last weeks of carrying your child. There are SO many emotions, feelings, unknowns, and sometimes fears but I am learning that those fears (especially in motherhood) can be turned into opportunities to PRAY and grow in our faith!

Week 31
Jesus, as we are coming up on the last few weeks of pregnancy, I want to thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you for this life that you are growing and sustaining. Please continue to give me courage and strength to push through the aches and pains and sleepless nights. I can not wait to see this sweet baby! Thank you again that your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Amen. 

Week 32
Lord, I pray for this child. I pray that you would give him/her wisdom, joy, faith, and endurance. I pray that you would give me wisdom to parent for your glory. I thank you that this child actually belongs to You, our Good Good Father! Thank you for entrusting this child's heart to me and I pray that we will be good stewards of the faith you have given so freely to us. In Jesus Name, Amen! 

Week 33
Jesus, I pray for a supernatural labor and delivery. However it turns out, God, be glorified. Give me peace, give my husband (or loved ones) a peace that surpasses all understanding. I know that Your will is perfect and will be done but I am asking for favor for a healthy and happy child and a healthy labor. Lord, no matter what, You are good and perfect and I trust You. In Jesus' Mighty Name, Amen! 

Week 34
Lord, I pray right now for my child's salvation. That even at an early age, he/she would have a softened heart to Your love and Your salvation. I pray that You would give them a heightened sense of You, Holy Spirit. I pray that they would exude Your love to those around them and I pray that they would love and follow You every day of their life. Holy Spirit, indwell them and guide them in the fruitful life You have planned for them. Thank you that nothing can separate us from Your love, precious Savior!! In Jesus Name, I pray for salvation for my child. Amen. 

Week 35
God, I pray for my baby's body. That as he/she grows, they would be strong and resilient. I pray that you would give me guidance and wisdom on how to feed my baby, whether it's by nursing or bottle, I pray that you would give me a peace and show me what is best for my baby. Help me not to get discouraged or overwhelmed. Give me wise and thoughtful nurses and a team of help that will come alongside me as I start this journey of caring for my sweet baby. Thank you for sustaining us! Amen. 

Week 36
Lord, I pray for the weeks ahead when my baby will be in my arms! I pray for a quick connection with my child. I pray that we would bond immediately and that you would give my family a bond with my child that shows Your steadfast love to him/her. Thank you for creating this child! I know that You have great plans for my baby. I pray that you would grant us nights of sleep and lots of cuddles. I pray that all of this would be for Your glory. Lord, I pray that You would help me when I don't know what I'm doing. You know and You made me a mother specifically for my baby! Thank you! Amen. 

Week 37
God, I pray for this child's heart. I pray that they would have a heart to love others around them. I pray that they would be selfless as they grow. But I know that what they see, they emulate so I pray, Lord, that You would give me a heart for others. Help me to selflessly sacrifice my time and energy for my child and for others. 

Week 38
Lord, my due date is so close! Give me peace and patience. Help my body to heal quickly after the delivery and I pray for a speedy and full recovery. Jesus, I just want to thank you again for always being by my side. I know that You won't leave me, ever. I pray that You would always be close to my child, hold him/her in Your arms and under your mighty wing. I pray that in the days, weeks, months, and even years ahead, that You would be on every side of my family. Go before us, stay behind us, and be ever present with us. Help me and my family to daily surrender to You and trust in You every step of the way. In Jesus Name, Amen! 

Week 39
Father God, You are patient! Help me to be patient even in the middle of the night feedings or when my baby is crying. Give me a holy patience with my child and the people around me. I thank you that You are patient with me even when I am all over the place. Help me to live slowly, soaking in each and every moment of this beautiful, exhausting, and good journey You've put me on. You are ever with me! Give me patience as I parent. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Week 40
Thank you Jesus for sustaining me these 40 weeks. I know that you won't leave me now, You've carried me this far. I pray again for my child. Give him/her a zeal for life. Help me to have a teachable spirit going into motherhood. I surrender my child to you, into your good and safe hands. I surrender my life to You, maker of heaven and earth! Thank you a million times for the joy set before us as I begin (or continue) the path of motherhood! You are good and worthy of praise. In Jesus Name, Amen!
