A Prayer For The Infertile

This is National Infertility Awareness Week… however, I did not know this till after I wrote this prayer. But God did! It is no coincidence that I met a young lady this week who has been trying to conceive for 12 years. As I woke up this morning, the words to this poem came to me.  I wrote this prayer for all of those struggling with infertility because I know the heartbreak and pain of dealing with it.

A prayer for the infertile…
is what I want to share…
and I ask you to join me…
as we lift them up in prayer.
For I met a young woman…
who so longs for a child…
but struggles with infertility…
as she has tried for a while.
And after 12 years of trying…
and being yet to conceive…
she continues to walk in faith…
and for a child she still believes.
So let’s believe in faith…
that God will open her womb…
and she’ll bring forth children…
with the first to come soon.
And we pray for all these couples…
who continually try and try…
while spending so much money…
but many doctors don’t know why.
For the desire for children…
is like a tug on your heart so strong…
but it can be so heartbreaking…
when for a child you so long.
But we serve a Mighty God…
in Whom all things are possible…
even when doctors are negative…
saying some things are impossible.
So lets pray for a miracle…
with these couples’ desires each fulfilled…
and say Lord please bless them today…
and let their quivers be filled!
And like Hannah cried out for a child…
and dedicated his life to You…
I ask You Lord to bless these women…
who will raise their children like Hannah too.
And like Sarah cried out for a child…
and You gave her the desires of her heart…
we ask You Lord to move expediently…
so their barrenness will depart.
And just like Rebekah and Isaac…
who were blessed with twins…
we pray for a “double portions”…
as infertility and brokenness ends.
And we thank You Lord…
for bringing awareness to their needs…
as we come together in prayer for the infertile…
and pray for You to securely plant those seeds.
For a child is a blessing…
and a gift directly from You…
so we ask You to bless these couples…
and let Your glorious Light shine through.

In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
