For This Child I Pray | Week 18

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” —Colossians 3:1-2

The word “heart” occurs over one thousand times in the Bible, making it the most common anthropological term in Scripture.

Lord, here is our prayer for this child during week 18:

  • We pray that you would protect the heart and that all the tubes grow strong into the heart chambers during this week.
  • We pray for the growth of the heart as it becomes the center for both physical and emotional growth.
  • We pray that as it is growing strong that You are preparing the heart for a relationship with You and that You will continually bless this child to know You in life.
  • We ask You to guard the heart against any ungodliness and that the baby will continue to grow healthy and strong during development.
  • Far after this baby is born, we pray for You to continue to grow in the child’s heart and that You will be the only firm foundation.
  • We pray for the heart(s) of the parent(s) and ask that You would continue to pour out your blessings on this family.
