Month One

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”
Galatians 5:22-23

A Prayer for Love

God of love,
Our desire for a child
Was born out of love:
For you,
For each other,
And for this new life.

In these first fragile weeks,
While the child within me
Is knit together in love,
Protect us both
And guide our growth.

Help me to remember
That this is how we love:
In the body,
In mystery,
In sacred surrender
To each other.

May my life be one of love,
And may my child grow
Into all that love has waiting.

In love I pray,

Amen.

  4. Jodi says:

    Thank you for taking the time to write these prayers out. Pregnancy is overwhelming and often hard to come up with the words to pray. So thank you for helping me in my time of need to speak to the father, the giver of life.
    We have been trying to conceive for 6 years and have now been given this gift of pregnancy. We are over the moon. Yesterday was our first ultrasound at 6 wks 5 days and what was found was an empty gestational sac and told we are measuring only 5 weeks along. The doctor said there is no life currently, that crushed us, we were told to come back in a month to see if there is life. Well I speak life and I call this miracle out to fruition in Jesus name. Please help to cover me/ us in your prayers that this promise would come to life and life to the fullest !! Thank you again for your ministry here!!

  5. Katrice says:

    Please keep me in your prayers, I am 5 weeks pregnant with our second child. Our first child is almost 7 years old and we had no issues at all. We started trying again and got pregnant in October of 2013, lost that baby and have since had 2 more miscarriages in 2014. Now, this is our first time pregnant in 2015 and we have both decided that this is our last time. I want this baby so bad, just like I wanted my son. I’m 5 weeks and I don’t feel pregnant and it’s sort of driving me crazy. I had to get off the websites and look for sites like this. Please pray that this is a healthy, full term pregnancy and that God allows us to add to our family.

    • Laura says:

      Oh Katrice, you are in all of my prayers. What a journey of heartache you have known. I hope that you will know God’s presence and peace in your waiting, and freedom from your anxiety. Thank you for sharing your story here.

    Please pray for me I am 6wks 6days pregnant as of today. I have been going thru souch this past week with my pregnancy. On easter Sunday April 5,2015 I went to the E.R. for spotting they did test on me & an ultrasound & told me I was having a miscarriage. So I had to wait 48hrs to see of my BHCG level was decreasing so on April 7,2015 I did another BHCG result & on Wednesday April 8,2015 I got called back to the E.R. & they they told me that my level had increased to 6000 so they wanted to see was I pregnant outside my womb or in my tube so they did an ultrasound & seen the sack & the Lil peanut I was told my pregnancy was in the correct place but I was still at risk of a miscarriage. I am still bleeding but was told some women bleed during thier pregnancy. I just really need all the prayer I need at this moment for me to have a safe & healthy pregnancy.

  11. Misty says:

    I have been to many many sites, this by far is my favorite. Thank you.

    My husband and I have tried for 10 years to concieve. Was told at one point from drs we probably wouldn’t or it would be very difficult and possibly expensive. 10 years later this past December we had a little miracle arrive, but a week later had a miscarriage. Started seeing a fertility dr, was almost to the point that they thought it was a fluke, or luck. Started to let go of that dream and calling again…to then 4 months later (just 2 days ago) was blessed with another chance. Im so scared to go through another loss, but know I need to think positive and embrace and trust in God. Through all this I really gained my faith back, trust in God and his plans. I can’t help always have it in the back of my mind though, the fear.

    • Laura says:

      Misty, thank you so much for your kind words, and for sharing your story. I am praying hard for you and your husband and your baby, that you will know you are in God’s hands and that you will be able to trust God’s love even in this time of hope and fear. And that you will know peace for whatever comes.

  12. Misty says:

    Acceptance was the hardest part. Once that was in place, my faith and everything else fell into place. I appreciate the prayers. Thank you so much.

  13. Afia says:

    The joy of after 4 years of trying, I have finally been blessed with my mirical. It sometimes just feels to good to be true. I know I should keep positive and take things easy. I just ask if you can pray for me in my time of need. I suffer from bad anxiety and everyday I’m fearful. I really want a healthy pregnancy and delivery, maybe I’m just thinkin to much. I feel this is the only way I should share my thoughts and the best place to let my voice be heard. Thank you

    • Laura says:

      Afia, I am so happy to hear of your joy after such a long journey. I will keep you in my prayers for peace of mind and freedom from anxiety as you seek to trust in God through your pregnancy.

      • Afia says:

        Thank you dearly from the bottom of my heart. To know that I am in your prayers means a lot. And I will forever be greatful Laura.

  17. Kayla Lemos says:

    I found out a few days ago that I am 4-6 weeks pregnant. I’ve been pretty nervous and trying not to stress about having a miscarriage but ever since I’ve been told that I very well could have one, I’m having a really hard time not thinking about it. I know stress can cause a miscarriage, so please pray for me to have comfort and peace. Also, please pray that I will not have a miscarriage but a very healthy pregnancy for my baby and myself. Thank you and God Bless you.

    • Laura says:

      Praying for you, Kayla. I hope that peace of mind and comfort in body and soul will be yours, and that you will know you are surrounded by God’s love each step of the way. Thank you for stopping here.

  19. Derek langkamp says:

    My wife is about 6-7 weeks along and has been doing well up until today, she started spotting.
    We went through a miscarriage earlier this year in March, and very similar symptoms from then til now.
    I guess my prayer wish would be for my wife to have strength and courage mentally as she goes through these tough times. To allow whichever the lord has in place for her and for us as a family, and for each of us to accept his ultimate decision.
    It is so easy for me to say this and to accept but my wife had a really tough time getting through our first attempt to have a child, so I pray that I can say the right words and be as confronting and supporting her as much as I can possibly do.
    Thank you for taking the time to read my prayer request
