Prayer to Conceive


I have recorded this prayer that was on one of the CD's I received from MiracleMothers.org.



Thank you Lord for the blessings that are coming

Lord, you said to speak those things that are not as though they are...so right now I say, we are pregnant!

What God Meant
Author Unknown

What do I think God meant when He gave me infertility?

I think He meant for my husband and I to grow closer, become stronger, love deeper.

I think God meant for us to find the fortitude within ourselves to get up every time infertility knocks us down.

I think God meant for our medical community to discover medicines, invent medical equipment, create procedures and protocols.

I think God meant for us to find a cure for fertility.

No, God never meant for me to not have children.

That's not my destiny; that's just a fork in the road I'm on.

I've been placed on the road less traveled, and like it or not, I'm a better person for it.

Clearly, God meant for me to develop more compassion, deeper courage, and greater inner strength on this journey to resolution, and I haven't let Him down.

Frankly, if the truth be known, I think God singled me out for special treatment.

I think God meant for me to build a thirst for a child so strong and so deep that when that baby is finally placed in my arms, it will be the longest, coolest, most refreshing drink I've ever known.

While I would never have chosen infertility, I cannot deny that a fertile woman could ever experience the joy that I know awaits me.

Yes, one way or another, I will have a baby of my own.

And the next time someone wants to offer me unsolicited advice, I'll say, "Don't tell me what God meant when He handed me infertility. I already know."

I went to a bible study monday night & there was a woman there that gave this amazing testimony of how God gave her children after being told she couldn't have any it was a real encouragement. He gave her a daughter just like she had wanted even though it was 5 years later then 3 years later gave her a son it was really awesome hearing about how God works everything out. I really think God had her give the testimony for me to strengthen my faith. I'm starting to not doubt so much anymore I really think one of Gods favorite things to do is the impossible. To have a child is a miracle but to have a child when doctors say you cannot is even greater

5 For God Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down or relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!

6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm I will not fear or dread or be terrified.

What can man do to me?
Hebrews 13:5-6 (Amplified Bible)

What are you passionate about? The horrors of human trafficking? The injustices of child abuse? Family members you love? What causes you to speak with fire in your eyes and electricity in your voice?

Read Hebrews 13:5-6. Read it again and hear the passion in God’s voice. God’s passion is you. See the fire in His eyes as He promises you He’ll never leave you and never even relax His grip on you. He knows infertility hurts and sometimes threatens to do you in. He is also very aware of every time you’ve wanted to give up on Him because you’ve felt like He’s abandoned you or you’ve felt that His plan for your life is cruel. But He refuses to give up on you even then, for when we are faithless, He is faithful still. (2 Timothy 2:13)

How does it feel to know that God Almighty speaks so passionately about you? When infertility makes you feel so out of control, the God who controls the universe with nothing more than His words says to you, “I will in no way fail you or in any degree leave you helpless!” When you feel so all alone because you are the only one left in your group of friends without a child, God says to you, “I will not, I will not, I will not leave you helpless or forsake you or let you down!” When you fear your future, and have so many decisions regarding treatment, adoption or the millions of other questions infertile couples face, remind yourself that the Lord Himself is your helper so you can face an uncertain future confidently and boldly and you simply do not have to dread or be afraid.

God is passionate about you today, friend. Even more passionate about you than you are about the baby you want to conceive. Because He loves you and refuses to leave you for even a moment, you can face uncertain days with assurance and confidence and even find contentment in the waiting.

-Beth Forbus
