  8. Laura,my name is Andrew. I stumbled upon your website of prayer, so here goes. My wife and iI have had a miscarriage. It’s was very disheartening to say the least. I never got to see or hear the heartbeat. She is pregnant now and tomorrow we go in for the ultrasound. I am so excited and nervous. All I want in this world is to see that heartbeat. Please pray for us. Today is our 3 yr wedding anniversary. I can’t think of a better gift then to see my child

  9. Laura, I come today in search of prayers and in some way help with faith. I am only 33 and feel as if I have experienced more heartache than happiness. My father, best friend, and closest cousin past when I was young. I am adopted and therefore have no flesh and blood within my family. My wife and I have been trying for years to get pregnant. Recently I was diagnosed with azoospermia. My world came crumbling down. I always wanted to have someone who was from flesh and blood. Now this will never be. I have come to except that fact. My wife and I recently did IVF. I am in desperate need for prayers. I feel as if this does not happen, I am sad to say, I may lose my faith. I don’t think I can bare the thought of at least my wife not being able to have children because of me. Please pray for me. I will find out on 9/6/13 if it was successful. Thank You!!

  13. I stumbled across this forum when searching for prayer. I have just restarted my path to god and have been able to find him. I struggle some days especially with conceiving. I have two beautiful children already, god has blessed me with a wonderful family but I want one more. My tubes are tied due to my husband not wanting anymore and we endured some hard pregnancies. Well my husband has changed his mind and even though we are stable we don’t have the funds for a nine thousand dollar surgery. I am here today seeking out prayer and to keep my family and I in your thoughts to try and conceive. God creates miracles everyday and he is the only one that can bless us.

  17. I pray for all those who are expecting the good news that their prayers be answered with pregnancy. My wife and I are going though the same hardships. And as hard as it is as times, we must not loss faith and love in God. I am even anxious and nervous and scared as I am writing this reply to leave for you all, but pray and love as God has loved you and the prayers will be answered. I will be praying for you all..
