  8. Andrew says:

    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. John says:

    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!!

    • Laura says:

  13. desirae says:

    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.

  33. Amberlee Murray says:

    Asking God to grant me, my miracle blessing that I’ve been waiting for. For over 4 1/2 yrs. have been dealing with infertility and not knowing it. Just trusting and believing in God’s perfect gift is His perfect timing. James 1:17. My husband and I have discovered that we had to go through the IVF process and awaiting for pregnancy results soon. My test is this Friday the 15th. I have so much anxiety, but have also just surrendered my trust and faith in God’s hand. Hoping and praying fervently for God’s blessing, my special miracle that I’ve been waiting, so patiently for. It definitely has been a test a faith! I’ve learned so much in this journey of infertility. I do feel like Peter walking on water, towards Jesus. I pray for more faith and a positive test result. It truly has been such a struggle. Seeing everyone, else around you getting pregnant. I LOVE God! And I know that He loves me, And doesn’t want me to suffer anymore. I pray that He opens that door and blesses me and my husband with that special, healthy miracle baby that we’ve been waiting for.

    • Laura says:

      Praying for you, Amberlee! What a beautiful image you have of walking on the water towards Jesus. I hope you will feel God’s strength and love surround you in a special way this week…

  34. Toni SoonToB says:

    First off i want to thank u Lord for letting me have the chance to get pregnant. I really hope that i be to have a healthy, safe pregnancy and child. Being told that i could not get pregnant again we provide that the devil was a lie. This a second pregnacy. Thank the Lord. But this second pregnacy its going a lil bit off track Lord. Doctors telling me i could have another ectopic pregnancy, a miscarriage, or my pregnacy to early showing. Now be told that its a yolk sac and they see no fetus they a lie. its just somethings men technology cant see. So now im under a 48 hours watch. To see how my pregnancy goes. So Lord we gone show them wrong that n 48 hours we gone have a fetus and my hcg level gone rise and double once again. Im be a living testimony for somebody.Because i know u wont have brought me this for nothing. So being living witness as up 8-18-2014 and between 7-2-2014 to 4-8-15 gone be a good and healthy pregnancy and child. And i claim thaylt and cover that with the blood of Jesus. AMEN. I rebuked u devil and the name of Jesus. WWJD DJWW.
